Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!
Matt is an instructor in the Technology, Arts and Media (TAM) Program at CU Boulder. His latest pursuit challenges the idea of a controller in the world of video games. This April, Matt and several of his colleagues will be hosting what he calls the “Alt-cade”, an alternative-control gaming arcade hosted in the Black Box Theater of the ATLAS Institute on CU’s campus. Matt’s alternative-control game is a “location based video game” focusing on “the monotony of the workplace.” In the game, the user will physically carry out tasks and complete objectives with two other players in an arcade kind of style. Instead of the players using a controller, the players will interact with tangible objects in order to complete tasks. Some of which include sending and receiving emails, delivering paperwork, and other things of the sort. Matt’s game will be just one of many featured during the Alt-cade event.
