One of the staple "go-to" games in the Carter household is Fruit Ninja Kinect -- it seems as if I'm not alone, as Halfbrick's Phil Larsen has just announced that the game has topped one million downloads (that's not even including any of their iOS sales!). I can easily see how this would sell, given how simple it is to pick up and play -- it also speaks volumes of the [still] active Kinect fanbase, since the game 100% requires the device.
I couldn't be more excited for Halfbrick. In the few times I've talked to Phil Larsen, I thought he was incredibly cordial, Jetpack Joyride is one of the best games on iOS, and I thought Raskulls was one of the most fun downloadable games in recent memory. The Kinect may not have been a smashing hit with more dedicated gamers like myself, but I'll be damned if it isn't a good diversion every so often, thanks to developers like Halfbrick.
