First game for Chinese eBox Kinect-ish console, Flyimal


5:00 PM on 01.18.2011



eBox. That's what many think this new Chinese game system will be called, set to be released later this year. It will have Kinect-like motion sensing controls integrated into the unit. One of the first games for the system will be Flyimal, which you can see in action above.

Developers Mixamo used the Unity engine to make Flyimal. In this game you'll be an animal. That flys. Through rings. You control it with your upper body movement, as shown by the staff in the video above. Flapping your arms lets you control speed. 

Excited? I know you are. But don't get too excited just yet. Gamesindustry says that the sale of game consoles are currently banned in China. It seems that this eBox could get an exemption so that it can be released in the first half of 2011, though. Remain hopeful.

Where do I go to pre-order this?
