"Human Chains" ("Cadenes Humanes") is a collaborative videogame in which a group of people have to connect two or more coloured columns (as told by a computer) by holding hands. It has been design to be in a public space and be played by passers-by.
The players will see two dots on the screen, showing the colours the have to connect. Once the connection is made, another coloured dot will appear.
The dots will shrink showing the time the players have left to make the connection.
The game is divided into three levels: easy, intermediate and advanced. The higher the level, the quicker the players have to make the connections.
