Linez is a cooperative game installation that counters that traditional competitive nature of arcade games. Two players choose from an array of colored balls where they will launch from their current location, leaving a trailing line behind. Gameplay progresses like this until one player accidentally crosses the other's line, at which point both players "win at art!" The system takes a picture of the composed screen and immediately prints it out via an attached printer, thus creating a collectible one-time artwork of the shared experience, where competition is discouraged and having an open dialogue during gameplay helps to extend the playable time.

Linez was featured at the 2017 ALTCade Show in Boulder, CO, and at Cabal Gallery in Denver, CO
