The lights are on
During their TGS 2010 keynote tonight, Microsoft announced a number of new partnerships with Japanese developers. One of the most surprising is Haunt, a haunted house simulator in the works from NanaOn-Sha, the same developer that brought us PaRappa the Rapper.
Haunt seems to be a cartoony, first-person haunted house game. It's possible on rails, and it looks like players will use Kinect to control a flashlight (and presumably other objects). Haunt is currently planned for a 2011 release. We'll update if we get a chance to see more at TGS.
WOW if Kinect wasn't going to suck this might be cool.
that would be sick, but whos buying kinect?
Oh no! They already tried this on Wii, and it was awful. Wonder what the achievements will be like...
I don't like being scared, but a haunted house sounds like a perfect party game for the Kinect. Definitely a rent though.
on rails? cartoony? come on...
If its like that, then no way I'll even think about buying it. But, on the other hand, make it a creepy fun game, where I can walk freely, and I'm interested.
I seriously doubt kinect will allow you to do that though. I'm not impressed at all.
Btw... who the hell is PaRappa the Rapper? wait... I dont even wanna know.
Kick, punch, it's all in your mind / If you wanna test me I'm sure you'll find that this game will more than likely go unnoticed unless Microsoft does something about that $150 price tag.
If they don't have a beanie-capped puppy jumping out and delivering some rhymes it's gonna fail.
A haunted house sim? Because that worked so well on the Wii.
< Still surprised by all the open Kinect hate. This sounds like a fun idea to me. Whenever I play any suspenseful games I wait until after sundown and play with my girlfriend watching, it's always good fun though sometimes a bit distracting when I'm dying from playing a high difficulty or whatever... apply the same ideas to a casual possibly somewhat quirky Kinect title... why not? The only bad thing would be the need to play with lights on.
This is STUPID!
If I do get Kinect, then I'll probably rent this. It looks interesting.
This reminds me of Stay alive(movie).This is on my watch list
