Shopping in 1 Minute is an artgame that is playfully criticizing the increasing desire of society for consumption. Our inspiration for creating the artgame came from the craziness of people during the sales period: long lines in front of supermarkets, stone-age-style behavior, lots of useless products, etc.

Thus, we are inviting audience to train for the next sales period. A player has to scan as many products as possible during a minute. As a reward each player will receive a ticket with bonus points according to his score.
