The moment Air Force engineer, and minor cycling enthusiast, Jimmy Wheeler, saw the streets of Christchurch overrun with orange invaders, he knew we needed a tour de force. People in high places messing with local infrastructure just makes him fly off the handle.
Armed with nondescript overalls, an increasingly fast bike, camouflage safety vest, and a helmet granting 3 lives, our hero is geared up for battle.
Channeling recent blockbuster, E.T., he jumps his bike high in the air, leaving tread-marked cone saucers lying in his wake. Blood pumping, he straps a fallen alien blaster to the front, and gets back on track...
Now Capt. Wheeler's on the highway through the danger cones. Can you help him put the brakes on this cone invasion?
Attack of the Cones was originally conceived in a partnership between the creative urban regeneration team 'Gap Filler' and Christchurch Gave Developers CerebralFix.
The Gap Filler initiative started in response to the devastating earthquakes that happened in Christchurch New Zealand in 2010 and 2011 to help people get together and reconnect with their city. Gap Filler has realized 45+ projects on vacant sites in and around the city centre. Their aim is to bring life, energy, positivity and creativity to every project they are involved in. https://vimeo.com/76843200
Gap Filler approached CerebralFix to see if they would make them a game to be played outdoors with a giant joystick, displayed and a huge TV across the street. Seemed like a crazy idea so CerebralFix jumped on board and along with a host of amazing sponsors they all collaborated to make an amazing experience that we now share with the world.
