Helsinki –based independent game developer Virtual Air Guitar Company announced a licensing agreement with Emergent Game Technologies to use its development engine, Gamebryo LightSpeed, for its upcoming fighting adventure game,Kung-Fu LIVE, coming to PlayStation Network.
Kung-Fu LIVE is an interactive experience unlike anything seen before! Using Virtual Air Guitar Company’s patented Freemotion technology combined with the PlayStation Eye, the game accurately tracks a player’s moves and scans the player inside the game. Boosted with super-human abilities, the player literally becomes the hero of the game. Toss away the gamepad and kick, jump, flip and throw punches against a growing swarm of baddies -Kung-Fu LIVE is all about hands-free, real-time movement and action.
As the next generation of full-body motion camera games are upon us, the team at Virtual Air Guitar Company have patented their Freemotion Technology, and have taken motion games to a whole new level without the need for a green-screen. This makes the game the only controller-free PlayStation Move title, however you will also need a SIXAXIS or DUALSHOCK 3 Wireless Controller for some menu selection, and you can use up to four controllers to get your friends in on the five player multiplayer that pits one brave on-screen fighter against the rest of the players in the room.
The other thing you’ll need is a little bit of space. Remember, Kung-Fu LIVE is unlike any other game to come before it on a home gaming system. You’ll need about 7×9 ft or 2.5/3m of space to play comfortably if you’re more of an extreme fighter. Think of it like setting up a virtual ninja fighting amusement park ride in your house! Our FreeMotion technology will need to track your entire body in plain view, so you’ll also want to turn on those lights to get ready for action. That and, oh yes, you’ll want to stretch before playing to prevent aching muscles afterwards. This will truly be a workout unlike anything you’ve experienced, and will DEFINITELY be a great place to start shedding those holiday pounds. Our lean and mean QA testing team can certainly attest to that!
