“It’s war. Don’t get popped.”

As featured at the Come Out and Play Festival at Governor’s Island in 2012.

Balloon Wars is a history of combat told through balloon stomping. A variety of short games can expose players to the varied ways we have battled each other, from asymmetric warfare to the charge, we explore them all through a fun and engaging mechanic that everyone (with feet) can play.

Players tie a balloon to their ankle using a piece of string. The balloon is their life. When it pops, they are done. The key to victory throughout all of the mini-games is to use your feet to stomp out your opponents’ balloons, while protecting your own.
