130w ago - Magic Pixel Games President Mark Tsai has posted up a video today spotlighting Carnival Island on PS3 with PlayStation Move from E3 2011.
To quote: At E3, we were pleased to announce the game we've been building for PlayStation Move over the last several months with SCEA Santa Monica Studio: Carnival Island!
Carnival games are perfect for translation to motion control gaming - the gameplay is very physical, requiring rolling, throwing, flipping and tossing - actions which translate extremely well for the accuracy of the Move controller.
However, we've taken away the frustration, making the game feel very natural and accessible - something that anyone can pick-up and play. Carnival Island has something for everyone, and is a game that you can enjoy in your living room with up to four friends or family members. It allows side-by-side multiplayer, so you can elbow your family or friends during heated competitive play.
In single-player mode, the game takes the player through a journey of restoring magic to a forgotten carnival. As the player accomplishes challenges and goals, the world comes alive with pets, color and toys. All of the prizes you collect and unlock make a real difference; they add to the atmosphere...
139w ago - Today Jacob Pennock has shared some PS3 demo video footage of a PlayStation Move Linux mouse driver he built based off Sony's upcoming Move.Me library.
Also below is a Gestural Interaction PS3 demo video, essentially a wand-based Linux Media Center using the PS3 Move controller.
To quote from his blog (linked above): A couple weeks ago at the game developers conference Sony announced a new product called moved.me which is basically a C library that allows you to connect the move controller to your computer.
Is currently in closed beta and I just got access to it this past Thursday. I spent my weekend playing with it and so far I've built a Linux mouse driver.
Since the Sony software is still closed I'm going to hang on to the source code at the moment, but hopefully by the time it goes public I will be up to polish this up into a nice wand gesture-based Linux Media Center.
