FireFly - Night Game

A session at Digital Shoreditch Festival 2012

Come play Firefly on June 18th as part of Hide & Seek's sandpit. Find info here: http://www.fireflygame.com/

A tagging game that explores temporal memory, and exploits the balance of collaboration and competition. The action takes place at night. Your first strategic move is the clothing you wear. Players, wearing Flashing LED badges will compete to see who can steal the most badges from other players. However, the prize you seek may be your down fall. You will have to be clever to succeed.

Questions answered :
Through the game, we will be engaging the audience in dialogue about collaboration and competition and how that can translate into the creative process. How do we handle making quick decisions with limited and ever changing information. It is the strategy or the outcome that determines success?
