Great Street Games was a projected created by KMA for the cities of Gateshead, Middlesbrough and Sunderland as part of the cultural programme of the Great North Run in October 2009. It took the form of a live, simultaneous light installation and game played between the three cities, using pedestrians as participants. In essence, the game involved pushing 'pucks' of light from your city's playing space into those of the other cities, points being awarded for every 'goal' scored.
All the graphics, audio, modelling, motion capture and simulation was generated using Max/MSP and Jitter, and a custom server was build using Max/MSP to coordinate the game-play between each site. A live video stream from each venue was broadcast online via livestream so online users could watch the games unfold from wherever they were watching.
