|Microsoft's Kinect peripheral opens new possibilities for game developers by giving them access to novel player inputs like motion, depth and color. In fact this hardware is so unique, it's not obvious how to translate it into a successful game experience. This talk shares rapid prototyping techniques developed for Double Fine's recent Kinect titles to help overcome these challenges, and follows the evolution of some early prototypes to their final, shipping incarnation. Along the way we'll touch on our software setup for rapid prototyping (i.e. Kinect "hacking"), augmented reality, and some fun shader based compositing tricks.
