Epic Schafer Interview reveals Sequel in the Works24 May, 2012, 05:04 | Posted by: jp-30 | Source: SF Weekly
Of course, what passes for work inside Double Fine might resemble play at other companies. Schafer sidles up to a duo testing what looks like a computerized funhouse mirror. He wiggles from side to side, and the screen shows him rippling like a sine wave. He turns around, and his virtual body corkscrews.
They're building the sequel to Happy Action Theater, a "video toy" published by Microsoft this year. It uses Microsoft's Kinect controller, a camera that transforms body motion into videogame action. In a recent meeting, designers spent two hours brainstorming different outlandish sequences for the game, such as one where a fox plays bongo drums on a series of eggs, out of which hatches a miniature version of the player.
There's a lot more to the article of course, Halford vs. Osborne, Kickstarter, growing up, LucasArts... etc. Go read it or crawl back under your rock. Your choice.
