is a multi-user sound- and video-game experience. Connected via broadband
the three teams located in Rotterdam, Budapest and Linz
join the battle with the aim to reach and save the flag, that stands
for the domination in the virtual video- and sound-space.
Each team consists of two performer players and two open terminals
provided for the public. So everybody is invited to support the performer
players during the event by controlling an avatar in the gaming area.
Each location sends a signal performed by VJ's and DJ's,
that will be all mixed up as long as the flag remains in the neutral
area. Does any team reach the flag and bring it to his homeland, their
signal will control the video and sound-show of all the three locations.
The success of the teams will be reflected by the performance happening
at the party.
The interactive environment is based on the first person shooter
game UNREAL, that allows the players to interact and communicate
through a chat channel.
game consists of:
3 rooms (one for each location)
1 "nowhere land"
There is a "thing" (called "the flag", even if the thing is
NOT a flag) somewhere in the "nowhere land". The Gamers at each location
are forming a team - so there are 3 teams.
The goal of the game:
1) Find the flag (can be EVERYWHERE!)
2) Grab the flag
3) Bring the flag to your own room
4) Keep it there.
As long as the flag is in the nowhere land, all 3 locations
are hearable (sound) and viewable (video). As soon as
the flag enters a locations room, the sound coming from this
location is sent out to everybody + the videostream produced by the
"flag keeping" location is sent out to everybody. So the real
goal of the game is: FIGHT FOR BANDWITDH!
