A few weeks ago, I finished my studies at the HTW Berlin in International Media and Computing with the defense following my master’s thesis. I thought that its content might be interesting to others on the internet too, but I understand that not everyone wants to read 100+ pages. For that reason, I am now writing this “too long; didn’t read” summary. It is also a lot more informally written. If you like what you read, you are quite welcome to read the longer version too! Here are the links:
Source Code (open source, MIT license), Screenshots, Photos, Videos etc.
You can also read this summary as a PDF, but you would miss out on the videos.

For every month of 2013, I’ve released (at least!) one game – except December. Luckily, there’s still a few minutes left, so I present to you my digital web/desktop/Android adaptation of a board game we once made at my university!
Your job is to locate six mysterious Aubjects
on a foreign planet – via triangulation.
To make it more exciting, you decided to have a contest!
Enclose exactly one Aubject to score.
For every additional enemy probe you get one bonus point.
Become the Master Triangulator in:
Aubjects, a game of skill for two players.

Game Jam time! And when I saw Heiko with this beauty of a touchscreen, I knew that I had develop for this. We wanted to do something where players can cooperate against a common thread. 8 hours later, we had this:
An asteroid storm threatens your mission,
but your trusty spaceships stand ready.
Defend your home base!
Defend your friends!
Try to survive as long as possible in this
cooperative asteroid defense game for 4 players.
Exclusively for 27″ touchscreens!
(Or alternatively for 4 XBox360 gamepads.)
Windows (Gamepad Version)
Windows (Touchscreen Version)
While it’s certainly possible to play on a tinier touchscreen, playing it on 27″ was a lot of fun! Here’s a video of us playing it at the jam:
