So, you think you can skateboard, but can you scrapeboard, you slime bag? Scrapeboard is a DDR inspired alt control game that uses a real skateboard deck instead of your feet. Do you have the moves to skate through a gauntlet of goons all the way to Tony Hawk?
See Scrapeboard Wiki for a manual on how to build Scrapeboard

The standard controller is a custom platform combined with a modified skatedeck, seen in the above GIF. It can be built using the instructions in the builder's manual and attached to an Arduino. Custom interfaces can be created using an Arduino or Raspberry Pi.
There is also keyboard support built-in. It is meant for testing, but the game can be played with it.
See the software chapter of the Builder's Manual for more detailed instructions
The software requires Python, Pygame, and a custom Python game framework PGFW. The Python version should be 3.9 or higher. The Pygame version should be 1.9.6 or higher. PGFW is a submodule of this repository, so it can be cloned simultaneously using the
--recursive flag. Python and Pygame can be installed on any operating system, including Windows, OS X, and Linux.
Installing Python will usually install Python's package manager PIP as well. PIP can be used to install Pygame by running the following from your terminal (for example, PowerShell on Windows).
pip install pygame
Once you have Python and Pygame installed, run the following to download Scrapeboard and PGFW
git clone --recursive https://open.shampoo.ooo/scrape/scrapeboard
If you have an Arduino connected with the circuit and program prepared, run this to start the game. If the Arduino is not prepared yet, see below.
If you are using a Raspberry Pi, run this instead. The Pi should have a circuit installed to its GPIO pins. See below for details.
python OPEN-GAME --pi
To run the game in keyboard mode anytime, use the following
python OPEN-GAME --no-serial
See the electronics chapter of the Builder's Manual for more detailed instructions
To run the game using the custom skateboard and metal pads, the Arduino attached to the pads must be plugged into USB, and the pyserial package must be installed on the computer.
If you have Python Package Installer, you can run this to install pyserial:
pip install pyserial
The Arduino must be loaded with the serial program and connected to USB. The game will try to detect the Arduino, but if that does not work, the device location of the Arduino can be specified in the config file.
If you don't have the board, pad and Arduino, you can test the game using keyboard-only mode.
Raspberry Pi GPIO input is also supported. See the Raspberry Pi chapter of the manual for how to install Scrapeboard on a Raspberry Pi. Once the circuit is in place, the game will be able to detect GPIO input. Run with the
--pi flag to activate Raspberry Pi mode.
For testing, there is keyboard input. To run in keyboard only mode use:
The O, P, L, and ; keys simulate the dance pads and your fingers simulate the board
___ ___ | O| P| <-- These keyboard keys correspond to the floor pads |___|___| O = top left pad, P = top right pad, L = bottom left pad, ; = bottom right pad | L| ;| |___|___|
Arrow keys also work
UP = top left pad RIGHT = top right pad DOWN = bottom left pad LEFT = bottom right pad
Zkey is a shortcut for reset (
Akey force resets the connected Arduino (or does nothing if no Arduino is connected).
The full list of configurable values is in the config file. There are also command line flags that can override config values. Use the help flag to see the possible values:
python OPEN-GAME -h
--minimize-load-time flag can be useful when testing because it sacrifices some effects to load the game quickly.
