HORSE GAME: A Friend You Can Ride On

arcade game performance
Nick Crockett and Adeline Ducker
2017


HORSE GAME is a mobile game designed to be played on the Arcade Backpack.

Aided by a magic pocket mirror, players must guide their trusty and adorable pink steed, played by Nick, through both in-game city streets and the real-life Hammer Museum courtyard. Players can use the joystick to examine a map of their surroundings, but must tell their driver - either by shouting or by shoving - which way to go.

Turn miles into money by picking up animal-corpse-beings and shepherding them to their destinations in your taxi.

EXHIBITED:

Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, UK (2018)

UCLA Game Art Festival, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA (2017)


TURN MILES INTO MONEY.

Navigate the town by directing Nick, your trusty and majestic animal companion.
Use your magic mirror to locate customers.
Then deliver them to their destination to earn profit.

Whether riding west on the Oregon Trail...
...or heading out for all-you-can-eat pancakes...

It matters how you get there.
