About as unexpected as you can get, the fine purveyors of interactive entertainment – Double Fine – announced today that they are working on a Sesame Street game exclusively for the Kinect platform. Warner Bros Interactive will publish the studio effort when it releases this fall on Xbox 360.
Players can expect to solve puzzles and use Kinect’s motion controls for actions like jumping and dancing. The Sesame Street Workshop will incorporate the curriculum for the game. When asked why Double Fine wanted to make the game, studio head Tim Schafer responded,
“Sesame Street had a profound effect on me, and many members of the Double Fine team, when we were children.” “So did video games. Now many of us are parents and we want to share with our kids the great experiences we had, but also the completely new ones made possible by cutting-edge technology like Kinect for Xbox 360. So it’s a labor of love on many levels.”
