Game Design

Candycane = Vive Tracker = Gingerbread Man

Physical Controller Design

I used the candy cane as the physical controller to tie the Vive Tracker onto the bars to make it work for the gameplay and easy for players to hold. I bought the wooden gingerbread men decorations and tied them to the front of the candy canes with matching character colors.


Pick up Decors and Run to the House

We designed the primary gameplay to be straightforward, as our goal is to make a family game that is easy and accessible to children and older people. The player moves the gingerbread man to the decor to pick it up and drop it off to gain points when reaching the house with the character's matched color.


Bonus Time! - More Chaos & Fun

In the last 20 seconds of the game, the players can steal the items from the other team to gain points. We added this part of the game to add the ending suspense. The players until the result is shown.
