Serves its purpose, January 14, 2014
by Simon Deimel (Germany)
The project consists of a room and an art object to fiddle around with. There is no aim, no plot, just the art object. This is an interactive art show, not a game.
The main thing to do is to turn the wheels and get random sentences as a result, which is entertaining for at least some minutes (not a spoiler, there is not much more to do). The implementation is sparse, not very thorough outside of this context; but the actions are centered on spinning the wheels and reading the sentences. I tried to examine the parts connected to the wheels, but I did not get to know much more; the only deceisive thing to do was to spin the wheels, and that worked fine.
I would have liked some more implementations, more to examine about the wheels. An exit of the room could have been provided to leave the art show, it would have been more authentic.
I like the main idea despite the aforementioned shortcomings.
