A downloadable game

This is a windows-only demo for Shutterbugs - a 4-player competitive photography game by Dr. Joe Baxter-Webb and Dr. Alan Meades, both lecturers on the Games Design BA at Canterbury Christ Church University.  Note: it requires 4 gamepads (and ideally 4 players) to play. This was a mechanical prototype and, as such, was only developed with the full player-count in mind.

Shutterbugs was made for exhibition alongside a collection of British seaside photography curated by www.seasphotography.org.uk. It took just over two months and was developed to work inside a four-player arcade cabinet custom built for the exhibition at the Daphne Oram building at Canterbury Christ Church University.

All environment art by Alan Meades. Most character art by Alan Meades with a few additions from students on the Games Design BA course at Canterbury Christ Church University.
