Safer Internet Day was an invent promoting Google's digital literacy curriculum in an arcade-like exhibit. The exhibit consisted of several installation-based games. I worked on "It's Cool to Be Kind" (shown at 01:15), which hosts up to 4 players at the table. In this game, bullies spawn at the center of the table and target a player. It's up to everyone else to send kindness to send the bullies away.

 

My game utilized Unity Photon Networking to communicate between the 4 Pixelbooks, the table computer, and the hardware plungers.
