Stethoscope Hero – Created by Michael Palumbo

Stethoscope Hero is a sci-fi multiplayer “choose your own adventure” game-composition for networked laptop orchestra. The story takes place on a distant planet that contains no oxygen. In order to survive, colonists developed laboratories that produce and distribute oxygen to the settlements.

The video game begins as an earthquake erupts, damaging one of the laboratories. The Superhearos, a team of perceptual superheroes, are called upon to use their powers of advanced diagnostic listening, which allow them to repair ailing machinery. They have been dispatched to the laboratory to save civilization before time runs out!
