“Perfect combination of innovation, creativity, and joy! Keep up the good work toward making it accessible — the world deserves more fun and accessible games like this.”
OVERTIME is an accessible alternative controller game inspired by basketball anime. Step in the laces of Jessica, the rising star of her team as she has only a minute to help decide the fate of the most important match of the year. Based on the positive feedback from Extra Credits (YouTube channel), the team challenged themselves in creating an accessible alternative controller from a basketball toy. Partnering with the Idea Realization Lab in Chicago (DePaul University), OVERTIME was able to implement hardware that recorded player’s movements with the alternative controller.
“You rocked The Very First Ever Extra Credits Game Jam! Thanks for making every second awesome! Amazing work happening with this game!”
“Another example of DePaul students exploring new frontiers in gaming. Love everything about this project, and am glad we could make a home for it at the IRL.”
