Samsung SUR40 with Microsoft PixelSensesamsunglfd.com/solution/sur40.do
Our friends over at Sarcastic Gamer posted some new Surface goodness this morning. It's an early "proof of concept" game called Firefly that was developed by the Carbonated Games folks downstairs. While we've done other games during the course of the product this is among the first casual games to test the SDK. In fact that was CG's mission...test out our SDK and do a little bug bashing (and they took the task literally).
Here's Doc and I...just before I beat him royally (several times)!
And here's a close-up of the action. The goal is to take advantage of the multi-touch capability Surface offers and use your fingers to gently guide fireflies into a jar where you trap them. You earn points by collecting sets of fireflies.
It's a simple game, but that was the intent. Doubt it will ever see the light of day for people to play though. The team just wanted to kick the tires on the SDK. We actually have a video we'll post where we meet the team that developed the game and they play around with it.
And for the record...Doc only beat me once!
The Surface team's very own Kyle Warnick was filmed by the local NBC affiliate in San Diego this week. Check out Kyle's full video on NBCSanDiego.com.
Looking good on camera Kyle!
Our team was at the Sheraton in San Diego today. They had a great time showing Microsoft Surface to another new audience.
