The finalists from this years IndieCade were asked to make a brief video to tell us something about either their game or their team. This is what they created.
Black Bottom Parade, played on an interactive table, was created by a group of students from Hong Kong and Atlanta, at Savannah College of Art and Design. Building on the New Orleans tradition of the jazz funeral, players control a band of three musician grim reapers leading a group of deceased revellers across a 1920s New Orleans take on the River Styx. The revelers, unaware of their absinthe-soaked demise, continue to dance and party as the band accompanies them on trip through purgatory on a high flying unstable platform. Black Bottom Parade effectively leverages of the aesthetics of Mardi Gras to heighten the emotion and complexity of the interactive experience.
