DAEMON - Augmented Reality Game
A downloadable game for Android
LEARN MORE ABOUT DAEMON HERE, THROUGH THE OFFICIAL SITE.
DAEMON was a cyberpunk, new media experience.
The first part of DAEMON was a game, similar to SCAD Humans VS Zombies, taking place on SCAD Savannah campus from April 15th - April 17th, with Opening Night happening on April 14th. Gameplay was live-action, using NERF-style foam blasters. Combat was squad based, with each team being limited to 5-10 players during signup. One player on each team was given a Google Cardboard headset to complete Augmented Reality challenges with their team. This player was known as the team's Decker. Team's fought one another while completing missions. This segment of DAEMON was open only to SCAD Students and Alumni.
The second part of DAEMON was a New Media gallery show, centered around glitch art, curated by the DAEMON team and headlined by local artist JON SPRINGS. This segment of DAEMON was open to anyone. Additional art from assorted glitch artists, as well as the work we did to make DAEMON reality, were featured.
DAEMON was successfully Kickstarted April 13, 2016, for $1,365 with 38 backers.
This page serves to allow newer people unawares of DAEMON or the project to discover it, download the app, play around with the targets, and learn more about the project we worked ourselves to death for. While DAEMON has already come and gone, we hope you enjoy what we have to offer of the remaining experience. As it stands, we're currently editing a documentary of DAEMON for the purposes of sharing the experience with those who didn't get to play it.
