After a magnificent start with Matt Costello, we are going to dive into the world of new interfaces. A few years back Nintendo Wii brought new styles of play into mainstream. Accompanied with huge amount of rhythm and music games (Guitar Hero, Rock Band) and bodily movement based game technologies (Xbox Kinect, PlayStation Move) new controlling mechanics changed the way we can experience games.
We have three experts of the field, everyone having different experiences and different approaches.
