Game Information

Shurfing is a game in which you have to shave a head while controlling a surfboard. The twist? The surfboard is the controller on which the player has to balance on and leaning to the left and right for giving direction. The more accurate the player can cut the hair in the style that the customer wants, the higher their score. But be careful about surfing out of line with the desired hairstyle which the customer won’t like.

Project information

Shurfing is a game created as a second-year project within the IGAD course. This project was part of the marmalade block in which three games are made within eight weeks. The purpose of the marmalades or in other word game jams is fast iteration in concept creation and realizing a minimal viable product to demonstrate the product. This project also aims to work with custom created hardware which in this case is the Arduino as a custom surfboard controller.
