Prototype is a brand new festival of Play and Interaction which brings together some of the most playful designers in the world, to engage, excite, inspire, create and energise the city by providing a new platform for innovative social interaction and cross disciplinary play.

A double bill of game-related performances.

Blast is a live point-and-click adventure game that puts you in control. As two imprisoned men await execution the audience must work together, sharing the controls, to solve puzzles and save the day. With multiple possible endings each game is unique.

Players will have the opportunity to not only see this early version but also give Dan live feedback on his game prototype

Several Amazing Things About Tetris (1984) is a short performance piece about the video game Tetris, obsession and amazing things. Using a mix of live music, video games, and projection to tell just a fraction of the amazing things that litter the history of Tetris.
