Smaug’s Revenge

A dragon flight simulator in which your body is the controller.

Embodied Play

Players navigate a beautiful 3d world, controlling their dragon avatar with their bodies. The Kinect interface responds to flapping arms and leaning bodies. A custom breath controller allows players to breath fire at will. The goal is to light six beacon fires scattered across the landscape to warn the kingdom that the dragon Smaug has returned!
