Remember those ‘core’ Kinect games you were promised? This ain’t one of them. Warner Brothers have announced “Once Upon a Monster”, a Kinect game in which players assume the role of Cookie Monster and other Sesame Street characters to teach youngsters ‘key life skills’ and encourage physical activity.
The game is being developed by Double Fine, president and CEO Tim Schafer said,
Sesame Street had a profound effect on me, and many members of the Double Fine team, when we were children. So did video games.
Now many of us are parents and we want to share with our kids the great experiences we had, but also the completely new ones made possible by cutting-edge technology like Kinect for Xbox 360. So it’s a labour of love on many levels.
The game is slated for release this autumn, so start counting down the days. One! Two! Three! Ah ah ah!
