Intel bundles 2 original Naked Sky titles with its Perceptual Computing software!

A Million Minions and Aligned come to Perceptual Computing!

With A Million Minions, Naked Sky has created a humorous, cartoony action game that pits you – a castle in idyllic Youville – against an endless horde of colorful creeps. It all starts when the evil Lord Bune and his brothers steal your kingdom’s magic Candy Scepter. You must retrieve it, else it may never rain candy in Youville again!
The pressure is on.

Using the unique hand tracking ability of Intel’s latest technology, you use your hands to smash, slice, shoot and block all in quest to earn the highest scores and figure out the mysterious origins of your squishy, mindless foes!

In Aligned, we have allowed players to use the motion of their own hands to solve puzzles and rebuild a broken planet. By making gestures in 3D space, players rotate their view around a spherical universe to piece together six fragments of Thyllus, a world shattered by a passing comet.

Each of the six fragments represent a new twist on the game mechanics and contain several individual levels ranging from easy to mind-bending. Play with exploding cubes, mass fields, teleporters, and more as you solve puzzles like never before. Aligned is a challenging and thoughtful game offering hours of puzzle solving fun.

Both provide hours of fun utilizing cutting edge motion tracking technology from Intel and feature gameplay unique to this next generation of computer interaction and are available NOW!

EA Unveils Microbot

REDWOOD CITY, CA – What you can’t see, can save you. Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today revealed details about MicroBot, a unique gameplay experience taking players inside the human body. The new arcade-style shooter, which will be available Winter 2011 on Xbox Live® Arcade and PlayStation® Network, challenges gamers to control a microscopic ship—a MicroBot—on a mission to destroy a biotechnological infestation. MicroHexon Research has invented a transformative medical technology: autonomous nanotech machines that are no larger than a blood cell. When injected into the body they target and eliminate diseases at the cellular level. However, something has gone dangerously awry. The nanomachines have bonded to the diseased cells and are now multiplying inside the body at an exponential rate. Piloting a new prototype MicroBot, players must seek and destroy the infection before it consumes the human host from the inside.

In MicroBot, players battle malicious enemies as they travel through veins, bones, lungs and brain. The rhythms and fluids of the human body create a dynamic environment that affects movement and gameplay, providing both combat advantages and additional hazards to overcome. Just as each human body is unique, MicroBot dynamically creates new levels to ensure that the challenge is different every time gamers play. As players eradicate the biotechnological infestation, they will harvest data fragments which allow them to unlock over 20 pieces of upgradable microtechnology. Using this newly acquired technology, players can strategically customize their MicroBot with powerful weapons, defensive systems, movement parts, and special abilities. With millions of possible configurations, players can build a MicroBot to suit any style of play. “We wanted to take gamers to a place they have rarely visited before — the world inside the human body. The fluid dynamics of the world and the customization of the MicroBot come together to create a unique take on the arcade shooter genre”, said Jason Haber of Electronic Arts. “MicroBot is an energetic and addictive game that is perfect for anyone that plays games on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.”

Players can take on the infection together by teaming up in a cooperative drop-in/drop-out multiplayer experience. Not only will players battle side-by-side, but they can also upgrade their MicroBots simultaneously in the innovative co-op editor, where they work together to create the ultimate MicroBot team. Developed in conjunction with Naked Sky Entertainment, LLC, EA is scheduled to launch MicroBot in Winter 2011. Consumers can keep up-to-date on the latest MicroBot developments at www.MicroBotGame.com.
