TH Cologne
Experimental Cuties


We developed a neo-arcade game featuring physically confining controls...and receipts, called PUNCHMART. PUNCHMART is an interactive installation that invites its participants to take a seat inside a real-life shopping cart that was modified and turned into a modern experimental arcade machine. Players are encouraged to punch virtual items out of shelves of a supermarket depicted on the screen by punching a modified keyboard in front of them with the provided boxing gloves, as hard as they can. At the end of the game, the machine will print out a receipt containing all the items they punched, err we mean bought (wearing the gloves, the player will always fail and buy at least much more items, than he actually wants to).
