Mystery of Sauce Controller Game Solved! #makeymakey #makeymakeymonday
Last week, I shared a photo I had found of a MaKey-MaKey being used as a condiments as a controller. I had mentioned that I would love to learn more about the game being played, and one of the creators, “Runar Magnusson,” got back to us with some follow up:
It is a simple browser game, made in a couple of days.
It was the first thing I did with my MaKey-MaKey a couple of weeks after starting a game design course at ITU. It was a stress test for group work. Was a fun project.
I did not program the game, it was a group project. See a video here.
