In this three player augmented-reality game, a portal is opened and cheese beings start falling from the sky. Players can save them from a messy fate, but they’ll have to work together. Using chains to drag a heavy cart, players must position the cart beneath the falling people to send them soaring back to safety. While the cheese beings will bounce back toward the clouds, players must also watch out for falling wine bottles which cause damage to their cart.

Fromage à Trois is an fun cooperative game-installation that is sure to make an impact.
