We just can’t stop announcing new games! We love to announce them! So here’s another game announcement. When we first tried the Leap Motion Controller, it blew our minds. After we painstaking reassembled our minds (it was a messy day), we started making a game for it. It’s called Dropchord, and it’s made by some DFers who worked on Kinect Party. Here’s the press release:
DOUBLE FINE PARTNERS WITH DRACOGEN AND LEAP MOTION TO CREATE DROPCHORD
San Francisco, CA - March 7, 2013 - Double Fine Productions today announced Dropchord, a new music-driven score challenge game developed for the revolutionary Leap Motion Controller as well as iOS devices.
Dropchord features fast-paced and addictive gameplay with a focus on music and visual effects. It is being developed by key members of the team behind Double Fine’s acclaimed Xbox 360 Kinect title Kinect Party.
“Two questions,” added Dracogen founder Steven Dengler. “What is a Leap and when do I get mine?”
“The Leap Motion Controller is the world’s most accurate 3-D motion control device. It allows people to play Dropchord on their computer entirely by moving their hands and fingers in the air,” explained Andy Miller, President and COO of Leap Motion. “We’re going to start shipping in May.”
“That means,” said Steve, as wonder filled his heart, “that I might never need to wash my hands again!”
Dropchord will ship later this year for Windows, Mac, and iOS devices. It will first be available in Airspace, Leap Motion’s application store.
Catch a sneak peak of Dropchord at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas this Saturday, March 9 - Monday, March 11 at the Leap Motion Experience. A playable demo will also be shown in Double Fine’s booth at PAX East in Boston later this month.
