The Cupcake Machine is a playful experience about an engineering marvel lost, revived and tragically broken again.
Enticed into the back of a dark truck by the promise of exotic cupcakes, players find the cupcake machine beginning to implode with workers panicking for help to fix it. Players must "fix" the machine and win cupcakes. The machine consists a state-switching game on 4 stations of big levers, buttons and lights.
The Cupcake Machine was part of the Lost Horizon Night Market. I designed and build the experience with Kaho Abe, Nick Fortugno and Greg Trefry. Sam Strick provided physical computing and acting support. Additional actors included David Gochfeld and Scott Valentine.
