The easiest way to explain Super Street Fire is to say it is a massive art installation that takes the basics of a classic Ken vs Ryu Street Fighter match and ups the ante by adding real-people and a whole mess of projectile flames. Shown off at last year's Burning Man celebration, the game uses a series of gas-powered fire fountains and some motion-sensing gloves to make it look like each player is literally throwing fireballs at each other.

It's a beautiful mix of all the nerdy gameness, a little high-technology, and the absolute insanity one expects to find at a festival like Burning Man. Unfortunately the nature of the project makes it near impossible to bring to more people, but for those who did get the experience, it was brilliant.
