PONG.LI: Capture the Pyramide

01.–21.08.2015 / 12–17.09.2015 & as part of the Best of Shows

A golden pyramid and colorful squares on the palace facade

An interactive projection as part of »Schlosslichtspiele«

This projection transforms the Karlsruhe Palace into one of the world’s first interactive megapixel multiplayer mapping games. Spectators are divided into two teams, and can use smartphones to take part in the game. The object of the game is to reach the glowing golden pyramid in the center of the Palace. Obstacles such as virtual holes add challenges to the game; a player who comes into contact with one of these automatically changes teams, and the game goes on.

You want to play?

Then arrive approx. 20 minutes before the beginning of the interactive projection at the platform between the sentry boxes. Additional information on the first worldwide Megapixel Multiplayer Mapping Game can be obtained at www.capture-the-pyramid.de
