Character Dynamics LTD creates a unique interactive game show.
Alien IQ features a highly interactive alien that plays Sci-Fi trivia against a human opponent. The challenge for Character Dynamics was to create seamless audio and show transitions to simulate the alien’s reactions to various outcomes throughout the game.
Character Dynamics created a custom game logic board for the project when they were planning on using a different show controller. However, they were pleased to find no extra equipment was required to create the game using a one of our stand alone SD Playout devices, which supports variables and conditional logic-based control.
The project used 35 digital channels, 7 digital inputs and 16 DMX channels. Character Dynamics used Venue Magic SC+ to program 45 minutes of continuous show data in, what they estimate as, “about half of the time it would have taken using other show control software”. They attributed this to the intuitive editing tools and tight integration with the hardware.
The wealth of features and ease of use of between the SD stand alone player hardware and VenueMagic SC+ enabled Character Dynamics to design a truly “out of this world” interactive experience in a short amount of time and for a very reasonable price.
