Players use touch displays to trigger the sliders. By tapping on a slider, it will jump to the top of the screen and will then slowly move back to it’s initial position. Multiple sliders can be triggerd at the same time. In this proof-of-concept version, players can use the 1-5 keys on the keyboard to get the same effect.
