Game @ Science Gallery

Would you like to play a game?

Or better still, invent a new one?

Our friends over at the Science Gallery have put together a brilliant interactive exhibition full of  new games, new versions of classic games and, best of all, the chance to play them yourself.

One of the innovative game systems included in the exhibition is Kinect2Scratch. This system allows you design and build computer games using Scratch that can be controlled using a Windows Kinect. (That means you can control the game by moving around in front of it!) It’s free to download and we highly recommend any budding programmers give it a go. You can get more information about it here.

The Kinect2Scratch system is set up as part of the exhibition and several of the games available to play on it were created by Bridge21 students. Over two weekends, 14 students, with help from Kinect2Scratch inventor Stephen Howell, made 4 fully playable Kinect2Scratch games. We’re delighted with the high quality work carried out by all involved and we’re very proud to have played a part in this innovative project.

A big thank you to the students who took part, to Stephen Howell  for working with us and to the Science Gallery for letting  us play so many awesome games. Now go along a have a go yourself!
