Announcing the Name of my post-Obversion interlude project

March 31, 2020

For those that have been paying attention to my social media channels, I’ve posting about a mysterious game involving 3D printing and LEDs. Well, I’d like to finally announce that the game is:

That’s Bomberman, but on a Rhombicosidodeahedron. You play by connecting you phone to the Raspberry Pi’s wifi access point. Then it’s just move and bomb in explosive 8-player free-for-all action!

One of the things that excited me about this project in the first place was the physicality of the game - you actually have to be present to maneuver around the sphere in order to play. But of course, with shelter in place, I’m not going to be able to do any playtesting for quite some time, so it’s only appropriate that I share the waiting for players to be ready sandbox music I composed. We might all be waiting some time, but rest assured I’ll let you know the next opportunity to come play Super Rhomberman.

Stay safe,
