GABI '21

By R25th

GABI '21 is a small Twitch enabled robot arm which is connected to a platform with a bank of four or five buttons in front of it. Players will type commands into a Twitch chat to move the robot arm side to side and up and down with the express goal of pushing said buttons to control a video game. The Twitch stream will have several components: two different camera view of the robot arm (from above and the side), the game window and a poll for selecting which command will be executed next. The planned game is to be a simple order-of-operations puzzle game where the players in the chat have to agree on the best course of action to complete the puzzle with the physical buttons representing the four cardinal directions for in game movement.
