Multiplayer Game Peptone Is Controlled By Shouting

Those years of shouting into your headset during online multiplayer games may pay off if you want to win at Peptone, a multiplayer "participative mobile phone game" that requires screaming into one's mobile phone to survive.

Peptone was recently on display in Montreal, where an estimated 900 phone calls from 400 unique players - it supports up to 50 players at once - created and controlled in-game creatures with the sounds of their screaming. The game's official site describe Peptone like so:

  • Scream into your phone to survive. Your character is constantly losing energy, and you replenish it by making noise. The volume of your voice will also give you a speed boost.
  • But be careful! Noise attracts the virus towards you. If it touches you, you'll lose a big chunk of energy. Stay away!
  • Keep an eye out for the combo master. When it appears, be the first to complete the combo to gain a special power. If you are lost press 5 to call your critter.

Peptone was produced by Departement, who offer additional video and commentary at their website.

    I spent a year making a game where you yell to control a plane flying through a maze, the louder you yelled the higher the plane went and so forth. It was for a rehab place to teach disabled kids how to moderate the loudness of their voice. Then my son at kinder told everyone that my job was to sit and yell at the computer all day, none of the parents looked at me the same way again. still it was better than my other son telling them I shoot people for a living while the gangland war was ramping up.
