Arcade Controller for Night Balloonist

February 17, 2011

A custom-made arcade controller created for Night Balloonist, a one-button party game by Spooky Squid Games. The controller is a simple combination of arcade buttons (supplied by Suzo-Happ), an XBox 360 controller circuit board, and some plywood.

This piece was built by myself and Jonathan S├ęguin, and was exhibited alongside Night Balloonist at Hand-Eye Society Social #11 on February 17th, 2011.
