Waterline Museum | Defend the waterline

Open the valves!

Never in the history of the waterline was it actually put to use as a defensive measure against the dangers of water. However, with the gametable you can simulate such an event as if it really happened! You’ll be provided troops, forts and water to defend the land. You’ll experience how to keep the enemy at bay by opening valves and filling the Waterline with the right amount of water. But beware! If you fill it with too much water, the enemy will sale across with its ships and you’ll lose.

For this game I was responsible for all of the programming. The main challenge was to create a convincing artificial intelligence that would systematically search for weak spots in your defenses and try to stage an attack there. The game is projection mapped onto a table with the shape of one of the dutch water defense lines.
