what is b.r.o.x.?
BROX was a project inspired by both point-and-click adventure games and outdated laserdisc games. For one assignment in my second year at university, I had researched laserdisc and other outdated trends in arcade gaming and became fascinated with them. For the project I submitted a basic arcade shooter called Billy Ninja vs The Robots, created using 2D layers animated in After Effects and compiled onto a DVD, that could be played on any TV with a DVD player. This inspired me to make use of the interactive possibilities of YouTube's annotations.
BROX never moved past the prototype stage, but has inspired many projects since.
