A trio of applications featuring Intel's RealSense technology. Livid designed and created an arcade version of Head of the Order, as well as a spell casting photo takeaway, and a facial recognition video takeaway.

In 2014, we partnered with Intel to create the content in their Intel Best Buy Experience locations. These were 60 Best Buy locations across the United States with a dedicated area featuring interactive experiences created using Intel hardware and software. They were in the middle of a big marketing push for RealSense, and Head of the Order was the featured application for about 3 months.
For this version of the game, we had massive screens to work with. Two up top, and two touch screens flat at the base.
We also had to adjust the gameplay for a much more casual audience. Since we would have players of all ages, heights, and experience levels, we created a method of gameplay that was less accuracy based, while still focusing on gesture. In addition to drawing shapes in the air, a player could also grab a floating token by making a fist, and throw it at the opponent.
The Faceshift portion of the experience was a smaller application, where a guest could record a short video with sound and the email it to themselves or share it on social media. I designed the characters and oversaw their 3d production.
Spellfie was an additional takeaway experience. A guest could choose a spell they liked the visuals for, and pose with it. They could then email this photo to themselves or share it on social media.
