Arctic Panic is a life-size arcade game that PLAYMIND created for Hydro-Québec at the 2017 edition of Quebec City’s Carnaval. In this unique multiplayer experience, three players step in to control lumberjacks with oversized NES controlers and another takes hold of a Dance Dance Revolution mat to gain control of a giant ice cube. With their giant arcade controllers, the players battle each other to gather ressources. The cube can stomp the lumberjacks and they can defend themselves with their axes.
The winning team has the chance to land on the Carnaval leaderboard!
