OverviewOverview

This is a platform game with a twist. One player uses a controller to run and jump around the level; a second player stands in front of the Xbox Kinect camera and appears on the screen in silhouette. This person must use the outline of their body to create platforms and interact with the world to help the character reach the end of each level. This interaction between body and the screen means the player must communicate and time their movements with the controlling player.

This collaboration is a simple idea but is cleverly executed with levels that stretch the partnership – and bodily contortions – to the limit.
