Well! This is an interesting move. Twisted Pixel, the developer behind titles such as ‘Splosion Man and Comic Jumper, are now developing a title for the Kinect, called Gunstringer.
It definitely seems every bit as quirky and cartoony as it’s predecessors. You play a cowboy. That’s a skeleton. That’s a puppet. You control him with your hands, one as you would a regular puppet on a string, the other shooting things with your fingergun. TP has not yet revealed if it will be a downloadable title or a retail release. Check out the clever trailer below.
On the one hand, this seem like a perfect use of the Kinect interface, and I know Twisted Pixel will stuff it full of silly. On the other, It will depend on how well the controls work, and I’m also getting a nasty flashback from the worst part of Comic Jumper.
