Question Magnet Particle Accelerator (mock-up with laser cats!)


We are not sure what this is. It has planet-like bodies with atmosphere & gravity, and other objects (in this prototype, our cat!) orbit around it. We anticipate users moving magnets on either side of the iPad to modify the orbits.

Default Game vid!

Hey, guys:

Forgot to post what we came up with before we went to sleep! Video here:


As you might expect, we abandoned the idea of magnet-powered controls for finger-launched lasers and added random orbiting UIKit controls for maximum irony. In the finished game (were we evil enough to do complete it), manipulating a text field, for example, might get you an extra 1337 points.

Thanks, everyone who participated in the Game Jam and commented in the forums to keep us morally supported, we had a great time!!
