my role/roll is to distract..
how many balls can we keep an eye on at once?
what are the objectives when there are multiple perspectives in play.?
old pinballs often had a second or third ball was released in play;
in galaga you could capture another ship and have maybe up to 5
shooters to control.. .. i had a party recently and we played "pass
the parcel" and had not the usual 1, but 3 parcels going in different
directions accompanied by iggy pop. it was wonderful to see cultural
sophisticates become squealing children.
eddo sterns 1999 work Runners -Everquest.. three networked
projections, each with a character operating within EverQuest -
useing a custom "triple mouse" players control three characters
simultaneously - navigating separate areas of the game world.
theres a historical precedent - how does this multiplicity happen in
contemporary video games..?
thank you for this overwhelming welcome..
although flattered I'd like to say: don't lets get distracted from the
pinball discourse which has started to roll in the list);
we are still curious in the roles of the objectives in Play.
