Independent developer Grandé Games have announced Commander Cherry’s Puzzled Journey, an ID@Xbox game for Kinect 2 for Xbox One. It’s a hybrid game which uses both Kinect 2 and a joypad and it’s like a cross between FRU, Leedmees and the yoga sections of games like Your Shape: Fitness Evolved! In fact Grandé Games call it the world’s first yoga-action-platformer, so we will too, lol! You can see a little bit of it in action in the video above. Please note that the video is made up of a few short, lower resolution and framerate GIFS from an early build, so doesn’t represent the quality of the final game.

Here’s more information about Commander Cherry’s Puzzled Journey from Grandé Games’ website:
