Cello Fortress by Joost van Dongen is a unique combination of a game and a live music performance. A cellist defends a fortress by improvising on her cello. Melodies control the guns, dissonant notes activate the flamethrowers. Players from the audience use game controllers to steer their tanks and attack the fortress. The cellist plays live music, while at the same time controlling the game to be a fun challenge for the players. Cello Fortress is an innovative experiment that blends concert and game. Cello Fortress was nominated for Best Entertainment Game Design in the Dutch Game Awards.
