Rasgueo

Creative Technology

Rasgueo is a table-top game where the player can only use eight guitar strings to navigate and play the game. The player must hit the same colored strings as the orbs that are moving horizontally across the string to prevent them from going into the deadzone. The player only has three lives as they survive endless waves of orbs. The spawn direction and amount of orbs changes to create ambidextrous use and quick thinking to increase hand eye coordination.

This project was created within a two and a half week deadline with concept, design, construction, programming, and user-testing finished. The concept was decided on using unorthodox computer controls, like guitar strings, to navigate with on screen enemies and UI.  The purpose of this game is to increase self-awareness and ambidexterity through interactive training. Overall this project was fun, but difficult. Working on Rasgueo helped me improve my skills and my ability to make quick decisions.
