Daftendirekt is a Daft Punk inspired pinball machine. Both aesthetics and gameplay are based upon their tour and album ‘Alive 2007’.

 

To start a game you spin the vinyl record which controls the shooting mechanism. The ball is fired through a tube into the

Alive 2007 stage at the rear panel. At that moment a flat beat will start playing. Each twist represents a specific sound or instrument and by touching them another loop will be added to the song; for example when you hit the piano a synth loop will join the composition.

 

As the ball travels through the playing surface, you get a chance to complete an entire track from Daft Punk. Touching all instruments trigger the lyrics of “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” to finish the game.
