Tate Modern Trumps Game
Hide and Seek / Tate
We were approached by Hide & Seek to design the user interface for their Tate Modern Trumps game.
Based on the traditional game of trumps, players race around the Tate collecting art for their virtual deck of cards. Once the time limit is up, they regroup to pit their cards against one another in a battle of the artworks. The app itself had three modes; battle, mood and collector. Users would first choose which mode to play in, as Hide and Seeks put it:
"In Battle mode, you need to ask yourself the question, "If this artwork came to life, how good would it be in a fight?" In Mood mode, you're looking for artworks you think are menacing, exhilarating or absurd. Or, if you wish you had a gallery of your own, try Collector mode, and find pictures which are famous, recently produced or practical to house. Once you've formed your collection, meet up with your friends, and play a fun game of trumps to see who did the best."
