The game uses an innovative physical interface; players use custom-built sensors, located around table, to move the balloon over the game landscapes.
While the game is loyal to many of the conventions of traditional computer games, it breaks others, facilitating physical, collaborative and gender-neutral play.

How it works
Our game has was exhibited at the NEXT05 festival, organised by Innovatrion Lab, and held in Copenhagan on the 24th and 25th of November.
We took part in Exhibit8: New Frontiers in Gaming, held by The Digital Hub.
Blowaway was nominated for the EUROPRIX Top Talent Award and we, along with our table, packed up and went to Vienna. We met some great people and had an amazing time. Read more about Operation Betsy, how we got the project to Vienna for the Awards.
