8bit Gaming

San Jamar makes industrial and janitorial equipment. 

They had a big trade show coming up in 40 days and needed to attract visitors. 

Based on their products, we created three 8-bit games fondly recalling '80s arcades (some of us are old).

Knife protective gloves became Five Finger Fillet. 

Soap dispensers killed germ aliens. 

Their ice cart had to dodge drunks. We called them dizzy bar patrons.

Simple games on big touchscreens, so fun we were sad when they left our studio.

See them in action
