Creatives and Technologists Seek to Bring an Immersive Street Arcade to Denver, OhHeckYeah
This summer, during June and July, Champa Street in Denver — from 14th Street to the 16th Street Mall — will be transformed into a street arcade like you’ve never seen. Powered through a combination of the Denver Theatre District’s LED screens, building projections, street art, social media and a website, this immersive arcade is going to be a completely unique gaming experience.
Built by the Denver-based creative team of Legwork Studio and Mode Set who recently created a similar online experience for Googld, the games will allow players to use a smart phone and their body as controllers while playing on the huge Denver Theater District LED screens, as well as projections on buildings. Microsoft Kinect devices will be utilized so participants feel like they’ve jumped right into the video games.
