A downloadable game

NOTE: To play this game via the *.ino file, a set of Move38's Blinks are required, as well as a Blinks Development kit.

"Dynamo" is an open-ended party game made for Move38's Blinks platform.  Dynamo's core functionality is simple - It's light is powered by touch.  Pressing the button will charge your dynamo, but the charge only lasts for ~1 second.  With this core mechanic, we designed 3 different games with very flexible rules, and encouraged players to "think playfully" and create their own games.

"Dynamo" shipped with 3 individual sets of game rules:

  • Power Struggle: A competitive, physical party game for 2+ players, where the only rule is to be the last player to keep your Dynamo alive.
  • Bulb Juggler: A dexterity-focused game for 1+ players, where they must keep as many Dynamos alive as they can before one dies.
  • Electron Drift: A game similar to "hot potato" or "egg toss", where any number of players pass a Dynamo tile back and forth across a playing surface, keeping it alive as long as possible.

Official Dynamo Blinks may be purchased through Move38 Store.
