Balance Ninja Video

Balance Ninja is a two- player digital vertigo game, where players battle against their own sense of balance, and stimulation based on the movements of the opposing player. More about Balance Ninja can be found in my Here. Additionally the accompanying research paper is available on my Publications page. Im really happy with how the video turned out :D

Vertigo – the momentary disruption of the stability of perception – is an intriguing game element that underlies many unique play experiences, such as spinning in circles as children to rock climbing as adults, yet vertigo is relatively unexplored when it comes to digital play.

With this work we aim to highlight that vertigo can be a valuable digital game element that helps to expand the range of games we play.
