Based in Orlando, Florida
'Pencil Pushers' is a game that sets players against each other in an effort to escape detention. The player that manages to sharpen more of the teachers pencils is free to leave, while the other is doomed to remain in detention FOREVER.
Brain-child of University of Central Florida's School of Visual Arts and Design professor Dr. Peter Smith, 'Pencil Pushers' is played through the use of modified Boston KS Deluxe Wall-Mount Pencil Sharpeners that behave as mice. The crank provides y-axis input and a button mounted inside the pencil shaft provides left mouse button clicks. A special driver connected to a Unity game allows for the separation of input from the mice for head-to-head action. What's the matter- the CIA got you pushing too many pencils?
