Independent developer Grandé Games have released a “Yogawesome!” gameplay trailer for Commander Cherry’s Puzzled Journey, their hybrid Kinect 2 yoga-action-platformer for Xbox One, which you can watch above.

As you can see you have to figure out the right pose to make to create and connect platforms, then Commander Cherry freezes you with his Platform Builder 3000 and you take control of Commander Cherry with the joypad to navigate that section of the level, shooting obstacles and enemies (and even through your own frozen poses!) and collecting items along the way. FYI, I’ve just found out that Horsedude is just the demonstrator for the videos, you actually appear as yourself in the game.

That’s all the latest news about Commander Cherry’s Puzzled Journey so I’ll repost more information from Grandé Games’ website:
