FukuPigeon Arcade machine

For this year's Global Game Jam, as a celebration of our Hackerspace - Tel Aviv Makers, being an official site, we've decided to pursue our old dream of building an old school arcade machine based on Raspberry Pi. We've also developed a small 3D game that runs on the Pi - FukuPigeon. FukuPigeon is a pigeon that was based in Fukushima, Japan during the March 11, 2011 Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant Disaster. As a result of the radioactive leak, the bird developed a second head. The game is for 2 players, and is available for online play - One arcade machine to another. Each player controls One of the pigeon's heads/wings and can navigate it. The players half to coordinate so they can eat some radioactive food, avoid harmful materials and also bomb (poop) on evil TEPCO (Japan Power Company) cars passing below.
