Bivouac Urbain 2009

Recently I attended a game design contest has an acompagnator for a team of 4 colleagues. www.bivouacurbain.com

The goal of the competition ws to create a game in 36h on the theme of “Antithesis”My team produced an nice project called “Handy Hand – Color Cappers” based on the oposition of black&white versus color.
