Art students collaborated with computer science students this semester in one of my courses to fabricate video games. Two games that expanded the potential of the video game medium were created by Margaret Keller and Ben Beaury. In Keller’s Dragonfly, users navigate a dragonfly through a pond. Frogs with third eyes help you discover nirvana, the goal of the game.

Beaury’s Simon Draws is a witty combination of the classic 80’s musical toy, Simon, with loose drawings in unexpected locations. Selecting the sketches in the right order forwards audience members to the next drawing.
