Mario von Rickenbach – 2012

A spaceship flys through a parkour

Up to five players control the thrusters of a rocket using simple foot pedals.

Together they have to steer the craft through a cosmic landscape. With its rough pixel graphics and its simple game objective, »Rakete« recalls computer games of the early 1980s. The fascination results from the special interface of the game: Only through coordination and quick reaction of all the players will they succeed in landing the rocket on the platform.

»Rakete« won the Experimental Gameplay Competition in Berlin in 2012.

Material / Technique
