MOVING OUT

3D Collaborative Alt Controller Game
2019, Unity
Collaboration with Siyuan Qiu
A local two-player game where players act as movers who need to collaboratively carry a mattress to their new apartment. It is inspired by the exhausting experience of regularly moving in and out of apartments as a international student living in NYC. To more accurately capture the feeling, players need to physically carry a "mattress", a long cardboard box, and maneuver around obstacles together to avoid getting the mattress dirty.
 
The game is made in Global Game Jam 2019 under the theme "What Home Means To You". We won the Audience Choice Award and were nominated the Best Game Design and Best Overall Game.  

We used our phone as a gyroscope to measure the rotation and orientation of the mattress. We managed to do so with the IOS app Sensor Data
