alt.ctrl.GDC Selection - 2016

Crank Tank is an experimental arcade game + controller combo powered by Arduino and Unity 5.2.

The game can be played by either 4 or 2 players. Players must coordinate their cranking movements in order to drive their tank to the enemy base, and destroy it. The controller cabinets were laser cut out of 3/4'' baltic birch, and are powered by a single Arduino Leonardo. Each crank controls an individual, hand-made rotary encoder which relays speed and directional information to Unity.
