Bubble-UP

Bubble-UP is a cheerful, 2-player game that toys with virtual bubbles, blob-like characters, live video, and single-switch controls.

Bubble-Up aims to bring players together through an on-line game. The original concept came from an effort to encourage regular breathing and eating for an individual, through a simple switch and visual stimulus. It has since developed into an experience with a expanded audience. With controllers resembling sip-n-puff devices, this game could live in the assistive tech realm.

Audience
The playful side in anyone. Kids. Quadriplegics.

Implementation
Migration of AS2 code to AS3 code in Flash. Use of the Flash Media Server with shared video, sound, and other objects. Controlled with either keypresses, I-pac device and keymapping, or built-in microphone.
