All The Kids Will Be Playing It: Cello Fortress

I can already see the Daily Mail headlines. “Do You Know If Your Child Is Playing Cello?” Sensationalist articles about the dangers of celloing in the playground, the scourge of gaming and its insidious links to orchestral music. Because there’s more information about Cello Fortress.

Yes, it really is a game in which four players play against a live cellist. YES! Another one! As Craig mentioned earlier in the year, the game sees a cellist using music to protect his fortress from invading players. And… well, there’s a new video to explain.

This is by the impossibly named Joost “Oogst” van Dongen, who created the gorgeous Proun last year. And wow. First of all, the cello is the best instrument there is for ears to hear, and secondly, it’s the greatest idea ever. I can prove that on a graph:

Science.

If you want to see the game being played/performed, and ohmygoodness I do, there are dates coming up this month in Holland. You can find out the details here.
