Game Grid at Northern Spark


I was invited by Ben Moren and Jon Kim to help with an art project for the Northern Spark art festival in Minneapolis.

 

We made a retro multiplayer game using P5JS and HappyFunTimes. The game play is similar to the classic snake game, except you can play with up to 50 people at a time and the game is split across three screens arranged in a triangle.

We added powerups, emojis, and a cumulative highscores list. Everytime someone crashes into your player you get a point.

The game code is available on GitHub here. Thanks to everyone who came out and played with us.

Update: Check out the GameGrid image gallery from Northern Spark for more images from the event.
