The Puppet Master

A urban game using the concept of mechanical turk

The puppet master is a game that creates a link between the people in a public space and a user behind a computer. It works pretty similar to the Mechanical Turk, one of the first "automata" ever created.

The game gives the illusion of an intelligent machine that interacts with the people. In reality, is just a person behind manipulating the computer interacting with the players.

The software provides lots of interaction modes to play with the people, funny, engaging and unlimited possibilities.
