4gency joined ID@Xbox and are bringing their unique “orbital stategy” game Habitat to Xbox One. They’re trying to fund their game via Kickstarter which you can see the pitch video for above and they mention on their Kickstarter page that they’re exploring the option of supporting Kinect 2 for the Xbox One version:


As announced at the Game Developers Conference in March, Habitat will be coming to Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. As an independent title from ID@Xbox, the self-publishing program for independent developers on Xbox One, you’ll be able to build, explore, and go crazy with rockets right from the comfort of your living room.

Habitat’s unique build-fly-and-fight mechanics work smoothly on gamepads as well as the traditional keyboard and mouse; at Habitat’s first showing at the Xbox One event in San Francisco, participants let us know constantly how natural the controls felt with a gamepad. The Xbox One also gives us unique opportunities to explore additional inputs such as Kinect and SmartGlass.



Here’s more info from Habitat’s website:


Introducing Habitat: An Orbital Strategy Game

Habitat is a space-themed strategy game that places you in high orbit around a ravaged Earth far in the future. Your survival depends on your ability to sift through centuries of floating space junk to construct a sustainable base. Leading a team of engineers in salvaging operations and construction, you’ll be faced with grim choices where managing your limited resources can mean the difference between life and death. As mysterious and powerful enemies mount attacks against your habitat, you’ll learn to craft kinetic weapons and defend your stellar stronghold. As you fight, explore, and create, you may even learn the truth about the Earth’s destruction and discover the secret to humanity’s survival among the stars.
