Is this website legitimate? I haven't tried it and I don't see at all how it would work to download a game by dialing a number.

I think it is.
You don't download the game. You connect with a server and play the game with your keypad.
The "screen" isn't your phones display, its the building (Bibliothèque nationale de France)! So you have to be standing in front of it to see what you're doing.
It's like those phone games on TV.

i heard about this, it was a university experiment, in my opinion its a good way to liven up those ugly buildings. i think its like connecting to an internet server to play games, except on the side of a giant office building

Think of it as a kind of answering machine. You phone in, "press 4 to move left, press 6 to move right, ...". The pixels are windows, with the lighting controlled by a computer.

I'm impressed with the completion time of just four weeks.
