Pune Biennale: Karma Crisis
An interactive art presentation was required to raise awareness about the impact on environment caused by the mindless consumption culture
We helped build a custom multi-player game that allowed the passerby at a public venue to participate in a multi-player interactive exhibit. A custom logic was overlaid on top of a 2D map of Pune city. Each participant was assigned a character on the canvas that they could control using their mobile phone. The game had random objects like mobile phones, cars, houses, and gold appearing randomly on the screen. Each player then rushed towards collecting the valuables. Each character accumulated personal wealth, but when the greed to collect every material object exceeded the green points, the game ended for every player.
