The crazy geniuses at Double Fine are looking to brighten your Holidays with their latest Kinect title, Kinect Party
. There is nothing I can say that will top the official video description given by Double Fine:
No Instructions or Tutorials... It Responds To Whatever You Do! — Anyone that walks in front of the Kinect will be immediately represented in Kinect Party. It will respond to their input in interesting ways. No complicated gestures to memorize or deep game controls. No signing in, and out, and in again. Just walk up and start playing!
No Fails, Just Fun! — The channels are each more toys than games — you can interact with them and see how they respond, but it's not a test of raw skill like you'd find in a traditional game. The channels are open-ended and leave it to the player to decide how they want to have fun in them. There's no wrong way to play Kinect Party!
How many families will have this running in the living room during the Holidays this year? Kinect Party
will be available over the XBLA marketplace sometime this month.
