Overall story and world building
Using Phidgets, guests clap to the beat of the female whale's song, and are responsible for producing a single note of the male whale each.
The game was meant to be immediately fun for guests; clapping was chosen as the main means of interaction due to the intrinsically entertaining nature of the action, and a world was built around this singular action.
