“This Controller Sucks” is an interactive gaming experience made by Extra Terrible Studios.
Controllers are purposely designed to be unintuitive or difficult to play with. The philosophy behind this being, “”Good design is invisible.””
Extra Terrible looks to create absolutely terrible contraptions to make players rethink their perceptions of conventional gaming concepts such as immersion, accessibility, and unorthodox design.
The controllers are reeeeeeeaaally bad too.
The panel will involve a showcase of current controllers that TCS circulates at conventions, on stage competitions for prizes, and controller design and its purposes. To finish it off, the design team will work with the audience to create a brand new controller design for the show.
