Israel’s Extreme Reality, which offers full-body, 3D, motion controlled gaming on any device via a standard 2D camera, launched DanceWall Remix, an interactive motion controlled PC game available for download on 40 online game stores, including Steam, Gamersgate and Gram. DanceWall Remix allows dance/game enthusiasts to select from their favorite genres, disco, classic, or retro, and provides an interactive motion controlled game by simply using any PC device and a webcam — no console is required.
Think of this a karaoke for people who prefer to dance than sing.
“For the first time, any PC device owner can access and interact with Extreme Reality’s newest motion controlled game, DanceWall Remix, without touching a controller or connecting to a console. This new found freedom is dramatically changing the face of motion gaming, ” said Sarit Firon, CEO of Extreme Reality. “The fact that DanceWall Remix is launching on Steam, among 40 additional online game sites, is a testament to the future of 3D, full-body motion gaming.”
DanceWall Remix is an interactive rhythm and pose matching game controlled by a player’s body movements. Each player can make physical body poses that transform the onscreen silhouette to fit through approaching silhouetted shapes and holes on a rapidly approaching wall. Using the standard 2D camera that commonly exists in most PC computers, players can control movement of their in-game silhouette as they aim to reach their goal to earn the highest score by making the best possible fit with these onscreen silhouettes, picking up bonuses, and avoiding obstacles. The physical gameplay is immediately intuitive and doesn’t require any previous experience with video games to quickly enjoy the fun.
Offered as an SDK, Extreme Reality’s Extreme Motion is the only technology to provide full-body, software-based, motion analysis and control to any computing device or operating system via a standard 2D camera. The patented technology allows developers to easily add motion control to existing games or applications, and to create a wide range of new experiences.
It is the only company to provide full-body, software-based, motion analysis and control to any computing device or operating system via a standard camera. Extreme Reality was founded in 2005 and is based in Herzliya, Israel.
