An interactive game where you protect the sheep and gold by throwing objects.

Made with my friends Hanley Weng and Julian Wilton, Golden Fleece is a mixed-reality game that calls for heroic individuals to defend the viking onslaught—an impossible battle—by throwing plastic bouncy balls at the projection wall.

You can see how it was setup in this video:

Henley wrote up our design process on his blog. The game is not commercially available, but you can get its source code.

Golden Fleece was exhibited at the University of Sydney's Make. Code. Play. event, the Research Visions 2015 postgraduate conference, and at the St. Leonard's TAFE NSW (formerly North Shore Institute TAFE).
