Buenzli 19 features GAME ARCADE

Buenzli is more than a demoparty: In the tradition of bringing you something special every year, we found something extraordinary: The GAME ARCADE by mobileskino from Basel consists of arcade gaming machines in original size which, contrary to their appearance and external functionality, do not contain any computers and screens at all. They work purely with analogue technology. The game surfaces which visually remind of digital games of the 80ies are being reproduced by Super8 and slide projections, but are still completely interactive.

At Buenzli 19, two of the machines are presented: The 8-BOX, a shooting game, and the RACER, a racing game. Analog strikes back! See photos of these fine pieces hardware. The objects will be presented on Saturday.
