-HONOURABLE MENTION of Videogame Architecture: 2 Drawings Competition


Pinball — an arcade game in which the ball is rolled and launched into a specially designed cabinet. Players control flippers to hit ball to Collect points by hitting various lights, bumpers, ramps and other targets according to its design. With their success in arcades, pinball games eventually made their way into video games with themes. Take the most classic one – 3D Pinball for Windows as instance. Player as a member of a space fleet that completes missions to increase rank. Flashing colours, lighting and electrical music draw players into a virtual game world. Just imagine city as a manifold and infinity pinball space ( We also referred the gravity flipping and spatial  idea from another game Manifold Garden). Under the influence of gravity, pinball (which you can associated to people) are launched to hit the target to finish the mission.

Jury Comments

– Freaks Architects

We were interested in the use of pinball to explore architectural spaces in their three dimensions. The renderings also give a very refreshing and contemporary aesthetic of what could become a super addictive game.

Beautiful illustrations that take the 2D of pinball to a 3D world
