This student made game featured at IndieCade was pretty cool! The premise: in a dystopian future, emotions have been outlawed, and you are trying to pass a scanner’s test while still still communicating your emotions to a friend. Can you do it? Will pass the test, or will your emotions get the better of you?

That’s my take anyway. This game was pretty clever and came out of the designers trying to work with facial recognition as a controller for a different type of game. That crash, and out of it came the Emotional Fugitive Detector. It was a much more compelling experience, and really fun to try to trick facial recognition AI.  Sadly the game isn’t the easiest to try, since its actually a boxed unit. If you see it at a con, give it a go!
