New Sesame Street Game For Kinect
Here are some digital puppets in a very literal sense...Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster is a new game for Xbox Kinect by acclaimed games studio Double Fine. The family-friendly game promises to take players into a living storybook populated with famous Muppet characters like Elmo, Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch. Gamasutra has an interview with Double Fine's Nathan Martz and Tim Schafer discussing the development of the game in depth.
The team at Double Fine is obviously having fun with this project (and who wouldn't?). Have a look at this video of Tim Schafer showing off some "fur rendering" technology.
Once Upon a Monster looks like it will be a lot of fun. It's due for release this fall.
