snake the planet!

Snake the Planet! takes the classic Snake game and adopts it to the MPU urban canvas. Each level is generated based on the architecture of the building it is projected onto. Windows, doors and signs become the boundaries and obstacles in the game as animated objects collide with and bounce off them using real-time physics. The multiplayer game also has a Tron-like competitive element, where one player can intentionally block the others’ path to win the game.

MPU have toured Snake the Planet! at a number of international digital art festival including Vivid Sydney, Enlighten Canberra, Auckland Fringe Festival and many more smaller exhibitions.

For a truly mobile urban gaming experience, MPU have built an electric powered tricycle, aptly titled the MPUnit. The MPUnit allows to move around quickly from wall to wall and setup new game levels at literally any location. Powered by 3 deep cycle marine batteries, the MPUnit has enough juice to power Snake the Planet! and other games for over 4 hours.

It is always accompanied by the Nana-Bin, an old Nana Trolley retro fitted with a bluetooth stereo, speakers and subwoofer, perfect for blasting the Snake the Planet! soundtrack and attracting a crowd.
