The Unfathomed Voyager is a collaboration game where three players work together to explore the deep ocean with a variety of gadgets. Every player get a unique set of instructions to keep their submarine from sinking, so they might need to shout out loud for coorperation.
︎ Submarine’s Control Panel
Based on the working way of phidgets, we designed an interesting name and indication for each phidget. For example there is a yourself, and you can push yourself by touching the electrical parts in the center of your body. You can also change paint color by rotating the painted box and facing the color you want upside.
We decorated the room to a submarine only using cardboard in 4 days. The guests had a great time! Some crew caught the blobfish but some crew crashed the submarine ... No matter you win or lose, you will still get a sticker for driving the submarine!
