Soon after Double Fine’s first Kinect title aimed at a younger crowd (i.e. Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster), they have gone out and announced another for the same target audience! The game will feature a collection of 18 mini-games “designed to activate gross motor skills, inspire imagination and entertain players of all ages.”
Kinect enables learning
Just like with the Sesame Street Kinect game, this game focuses on learning and development. “We know that the most effective learning environments for children are those that are engaging and exciting, and that foster collaboration and a positive attitude toward learning,” commented Microsoft’s educational design director Alex Games.
“With the controller-free magic of Kinect, we can encourage kids to use their motor skills and to learn using their body in immersive experiences. This new way to play allows children to learn by interacting with their favorite characters and engage with content in novel ways.”
Will you be surprising your kids with this Kinect game during the holiday’s? Or are you more of a holiday-bundle kind of parent?
