Concept

Originally intended to be played without your standard interface but with the power of holding hands in a real life magic circle. With the help of the “MakeyMakey Kit” the four players can be connected to one of your computers arrow keys each. One of the players additionally will be electrically earthed. To navigate in the game, the players have to time and combine their powers by holding and releasing hands. Each chain of action has to include the electrically earthed player.
