I shall not dignify your suspicion with a definitive answer. But! All nob gags aside, I am interested in indie devs’ use and abuse of Microsoft’s Kinect camera, which has been the sad victim of technical limitations and a lack of imagination over in its official home, the Xbox 360. I keep meaning to take a proper look at what the indie community is doing with the motion controller, but I doubt there’s too much going on now the world seems to have lost interest in the thing. One exception to that is Project
One-Eyed Trouser Snake Willy, a two player game of motion control and tradtional control, and also a bizarre pastiche of that film about a whale. It was created for the Global Game Jam 2013, making its technical accomplishments all the more impressive, even if some of the presentation and the concept of a whale travelling through a human’s body is all kinds of whatthehell.
Take a look at in action. Not mind-blowing stuff admittedly, but I do really like the idea of this being possible on a PC.
There’s, er, also a story. Sort of. Er.
Yes. Well. More details here, too.
