Videogame Tetris is this year's block classic ready to go large on the side of Philadelphia's Cira Centre tower in April.
Last year's Philly Tech Week saw Pong projected live onto the tower's accomodating structure, a project realised by Drexel University's game design prof Frank Lee.
It was, at the time, the world's Largest Architectural Video Game Display, covering 59,800 square feet, but this year's double-sided affair is aiming to consume a 100,000 foot canvas of metal and glass.
Players based at twin locations on the north and south sides of the tower will be able to play Tetris both competitively and co-operatively.
"This year, I wanted to find a way to use all sides of the building and truly created an aesthetic of a unique and fleeting moment shared by all the people in Philadelphia," Lee wrote on Drexel's news blog.
Friday April 4th will see the Eakins Oval host a night of food, drink, gaming and live performance, with prospective attendees able to sign up for the Tetris feat right now via ph.ly/tetrislottery. — ©AFP/Relaxnews 2014
