Other experimental, physically interactive games of particular interest include:

  • SPACE MAESTRO from USC Interactive Media Division – an interactive Kinect experience where players create their own musical universe through movement in the physical space
  • Spaceteam from Henry Smith – At the forefront of the emerging trend of multiplayer multi-device iOS games, Spaceteam is a cooperative party game for 2-4 players to shout technobabble at each other until their ship explodes.
  • QuickDraw – Glow Tag Greenfly Studios – Your PSMove controller is now your weapon of choice in this gunslinging homage to the Wild West and the art of the gentleman’s duel

They’re all on display and ready to play at the IndieCade booth, located at 3035 South Hall in the L.A. Convention Centre.
