CONCEPT

An input device was made that is capable of transforming a single-player game into a cooperative two-player game. Moving the point of cooperation out of the digital environment, into to the physical world and onto the bodies of the players themselves. For the game, the difficulty of having to navigate a labyrinth-type setting was thought to inspire conversation between players. What’s more is that each game ending came with a randomized phrase to read at the end.
