Shakespeareoke

Shakespeareoke is Karaoke for Shakespeare. Hold a table reading or online performance with your G+ friends. Players advance the script and trigger special effects.

It’s an experiment to learn the characteristics and functionality of the Google Hangout environment. Surprisingly, the features I designed tested some limits of Hangouts. I refined a nice, structured architecture that makes it easy to maintain and extend.

The experience served as a good base for the StickyFloat project.

I have some previous history with theatre, including one summer as an extra in Othello at Stratford (1987).
