Title: Rube & Lullaby
Author: Erik Loyer
Upon the occasion of CCSWG20, artist Erik Loyer has shared the code for Ruben & Lullaby, a wonderful iOS work in which you play (as in playing a musical instrument) a conversation between two fighting lovers. You can make it worse by aggravating them or try to smooth things out, as you interact to calm them down (via rubbing the screen) or irritate them (by shaking it). The piece also features a "dynamic score," which is also affected by user interaction.
Erik has pointed us in some potential areas of interest:
Input is handled in EAGLView.m — both accelerometer (tilt to cut, shake to anger) and touch (tap to change eye position, stroke to calm).
The logic behind the story mechanics, shot transitions, and the dynamic score is all contained in StoryManager.m — I'm interested in exploring these as potential constraints on live performance by actors and musicians.
The XML file rl_data.xml contains data describing each character view, as well as a script that serves as a kind of superstructure for the experience.
In Localizable.strings you can find the vestiges of an abandoned attempt to make the story mechanics easier to grasp through text.
