SpaceTeam was mentioned by someone, but it needs description. It's a same room multiplayer game where you all link up via Bluetooth or wifi. On everyone's screen is a spaceship control panel.
Your spaceship is falling apart. The only thing that can keep that from happening us if everyone follows the instructions popping up on the screen "flip the twibber switch", "turn the balance knob", etc...
The instructions that pop up on your screen might not apply to your controls though, so you have to tell the people on your team to do the thing.
It devolves into frantic yelling obscure instructions at each other and is hilarious fun, especially with more than two people.
You might already have the paid version if you've been buying the humble bundles for Android.
If you haven't driven your friends crazy with spaceteam.
Needs friends within proximity with android to play..
SpaceTeam! Perhaps the best multiplayer mobile games I've played. You play as the crew of a spaceship, and your screen flashes instructions for other players. Basically devolves into the whole group shouting technobabble. It's a blast.
Spaceteam is co-op game that places 2-4 players in control of a ship in a constant state of disaster. The game will tell you to turn, twist, and press all kinds of doo-hickeys, but many of them will be on your partner's screen.
Via bluetooth, there is a pretty fun one called SpaceTeam, it needs at least two people but could be played with four. ([link])
From a design perspective I really liked several things you showed off in that video. The first room has great decor and scene setting (showing the blueprints, two protagonists), and you return to it a couple of times like a home base, instead of a simple linear progression. The red alarm lights are great, I loved how the gung-ho player set it off and the others called him back to look at the screen. Simultaneous actions required by players in different locations, amazing, and software UI looks great! I guess you've played Spaceteam? Even though essentially that pyramid is the final 'key' it feels like a positive thing to get the prize rather than the objective being to avoid a negative thing that most escape rooms have. Collaborative puzzle solving with the concentric rings, getting everyone to join in.
What kind of budget does it take for the set-up in the video? Aren't there eye injury risks using lasers, or are they just infrared?
Just as an idea, it'd be cool to give the players the choice at the end to follow Giles Pemberton's legacy or support the resistance. Everyone likes multiple endings to their games.
Small PSA: please remember professionalism includes accessibility; as cool as it is, I'd worry that the final puzzle might not be accessible to players who have poor hearing. And for check online how colours look to different types of colourblindess. The whole playing area was flat which is cool but maybe some items are a bit high for kids and wheelchair users. I know stuff like this can be a pain and seem limiting, but you'll make someone's day if they feel included. Plus operators can advertise as being accessible which is good for family groups.
Reminds me of Spaceteam. Great game if you have three friends that you want to yell random babbling instructions at to help them get the ship to safety.
> I had the idea that the play group is given a large ship, like the Falcon
Then you get them to play Spaceteam - a shouting game while they are piloting.
Not really what youre asking for, but Muthafuckin' SPACETEAM is the best fun you and your nerdy friends can have together.
Oh man, there's another game just like this for phones and tablets. You connect with a friend on their phone, and you both read nonsense directions to each other, while performing their directions.
Except instead of a bomb, you're both on a spaceship, trying to manage its systems so you can escape a star going supernova. One of the twists is that sometimes the direction you read is for your part of the ship, and other times, it's for your partner's part of the ship, so you need to communicate effectively or else you lose. It gets really intense when it gets faster, and it's extremely fun when you're drinking at a friend's house.
Its called Spaceteam
You are thinking of an android/iOS game called spaceteam
Check out <strong>Spaceteam</strong>. Mindless fun, totally hilarious and gets people talking/yelling. You can easily connect via wifi or bluetooth and play with up to four people --- the more people you have, the harder the game gets.
It's easy to learn, fun and collaborative. I was trying out a new tablet one afternoon and decided to fire up Spaceteam on it and my phone. Right as the game started my housemate walked in. I handed him the tablet and told him his first command. He was playing within seconds and we saved the ship for a few rounds.
Whats that space team one...
edit: oh haha, its just Spaceteam
There's also stuff like Castle Crashers. Maybe this list? [link]
> Depressurized the dashboard.
> Tickled the underbelly.
Sounds like something straight out of Spaceteam.
Space Team is a personal favorite with my friends and I. However, you do end up being "that group" of people in line. You tend to get very loud when playing, and no one around you will have any clue what you're doing so you're going to get very odd looks.
>check our phones
Have you tried a bluetooth powered multiplayer game? Spaceteam ([link]) is great fun. I'm sure there are others out there.
I feel the hardest part here would be a card game that doesn't need a table and/or can be played standing up. I'd love to know if any games that hit that restriction exist.
It's available for iOS as well, and iOS and Android users can play together over local WiFi.
Here's the Android link for completeness.
Seconding "Space Team" (needs two phones, can be iPhone or Android). Android link: [link]
Also, "2 Player Reactor" for Android: [link]
Reminds me of Spaceteam - communication games are terribly frustrating and fun at the same time. It teaches you a lot about your own ability to listen and communicate with other people.
There's a game out there called SpaceTeam, in which you have to shout instructions to friends in order to avoid dying.
If you have a friend over and can't figure out what to do, try out Spaceteam.
Any one who ever played Space Team knows it should be called Space Team and played/shouted at every opportunity.
Best local multiplayer mobile game:
YES! We play Minecraft on pretty much every bus ride, and play Age of Empires II in the hotel rooms. In the past we've also played Civ IV on bus rides as well. Several of our students and mentors have also played Spaceteam together.
In general, we tend to play a lot of games in which we can do local multiplayer.
This might not be exactly what you are looking for, but SpaceTeam is a lot of fun to play with a group of people. You can have between two to eight players using local multiplayer.
Your group is flying a spaceship that constantly about to explode. Each player gets a set of random ship controls that are unique to them. Then different messages pop up on different player's screens that will say things like "turn off the flumoxer," but the person that gets the message probably won't have that control. So you have to yell to their your team to find that control before it blows up.
It starts out slow and manageable, then turns into a crazy shouting experience as things aren't flipped or turned in time and everything starts to blow up.
All the controls have silly techno-babble names and the whole thing is quite a fun party type game.
If you wanted to make it crazier, do something like two competing teams of 2+ players each with their own ship. Then add in real world distractions like throwing pillows at the other side.
As a side note, if you Google "mobile game is controlling a space craft and you need like 3 or 4 people", Spaceteam is the first link.
Spaceteam except you have to use the IoT smart devices in your house (turn up your thermostat, set microwave to popcorn, etc)
Well, if you don't mind sounding like an utter idiot, a game that me and my friends spent hours upon hours playing is Spaceteam
Space Team for iOS and Android. It is the best party game around.
This sounds a lot like Spaceteam:
You'll have a teammate tell you "Quick, discharge the clip-jawed fluxtrunions!", and then you have to find the switch labelled "discharge" under the clip-jawed fluxtrunions panel. And if you take too long, the space ship starts to fall apart.
There's a similar game on Android and iOS called "Spaceteam". It works over bluetooth and WiFi, pretty cool.
This game reminds me of the app Spaceteam, which is actually loads of with several local players, each with their own device to play it on.
Spaceteam is amazingly stupid and fun if you have friends to play it with. I got it via humble bundle. For some reason, the store version sometimes claims incompatibility with compatible devices, but otherwise it's wonderful. Bear in mind, this one can't be played solo.
Spaceteam is a good party type game with Bluetooth multiplayer. You have to able to shout, preferably, or at least talk. So not good in like a library setting.
Play Spaceteam on your phones. It is awesome.
If English is not your first language, use Spaceteam: ESL.
Spaceteam is a great mobile game for 2-8 friends. You control a space ship together, one as commander and the others on the controls of the ship. You will need multiple devices though.
I'm worried that if you're playing remotely, then you won't get as much personal interaction. If you REALLY want to connect, you need to be physically near her so that you can properly chat.
Have you considered looking into any board games? They work beautifully on a tablet if you get the right pass-and-play games. I also enjoyed stuff like Space Team.
Space Team is always a good laugh. Everyone has a control panel with a few random controls, and you receive instructions which may or may not be for you. For example, you could receive "set the Technothrostle to 3". You have to get whoever can control the Technothrostle to set it to 3, which is usually by yelling in their face repeatedly.
