machina eX was founded in Berlin in 2010. They are a collective of theatre and media artists designing computer games in real-life environments. They define themselves as a game design laboratory, constantly working on the development of new formats, interactive stories and game-technologies.
One of their newest technologies is a mobile-phone-adventure-software, which makes it possible for an audience to enter a game world using their mobile phone. The game evolves through text messages, voicemails and phone calls. Any location, indoors or outdoors, can be a stage. Anyone with a basic mobile phone can be an audience member.
In the spirit of open source, machina eX share the technology of this mobile-phone-adventure with four Hungarian artist groups – theatre collectives, architects and media artists alike. Using this technology in a ten-day game-design workshop they will collectively produce a set of new games, presented as PlayMobile: an interactive game parcours starting at Jurányi Inkubátorház.
