Jury Selections

Line Wobbler

Robin BAUMGARTEN / Matthias MASCHEK

Gadget, Electronic device [Germany / Austria]

Line Wobbler is a one-dimensional dungeon crawler game with a custom controller made out of a door-stopper spring and a five meter long LED strip display. The player navigates obstacles and fights enemies to reach the exit by pulling the controller back and letting it go to make it oscillate back and forth rapidly. It is an experiment in minimalism in game design, use of novel input mechanics, retro sound, and the incorporation of physical space into the game.
