Last week we had the pleasure of attending Confetti’s 2017 ‘Industry Week’. Confetti is an Institute of Creative Technologies, and Triangular Pixels went along to showcase Unseen Diplomacy. The industry week is all about bringing real-life experience and technologies to Confetti’s students, and our live VR game certainly helped that!
The green screen, although not necessary for the game to run,
added to the atmosphere and looked very cool.
Unseen Diplomacy is a social game designed to make the most of space and audience interaction. Confetti was a perfect place to do this because their students are becoming specialists in the creative industries and we were glad to talk to them about our VR work.
The two days were very busy – we estimate Unseen Diplomacy had about 1 player every 5 minutes for 7 hours, and the queue was always full. Unseen Diplomacy encourages different interactions with the game and how the player gets through the space, and we were impressed with the new techniques people tried (like throwing keycards to flip switches!).
Everyone had fun watching, too, with friends encouraging each other.
We also had some excellent player reactions!
We had groups coming into discuss the game and how it’s different to other games. We talked about how its development story and about what it means to work in VR – hopefully inspiring further innovation.
If you want to bring Unseen Diplomacy to your event or exhibition, get in touch!
