Sesame Street for Kinect. Nice!
Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster is the latest title announced by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and will see young children everywhere, and older kids I am sure, join with Cookie Monster, Elmo and other monsters for a Kinect based adventure on Xbox360. The game is being developed by Double Fine Productions.
“As a mother, I couldn’t be more thrilled with the inspiring activities we’ve created for kids and families to play together in Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster, said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Combining Double Fine Productions’ talent for making highly creative games and the beloved Sesame Street brand, the gamemixes original gameplay with a memorable learning experience.”
“It’s great to be working with Warner Bros., especially on a game like Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster, which brings together so many things we all care about,” said Tim Schafer, President and CEO of Double Fine Productions. “Sesame Street had a profound effect on me, and many members of the Double Fine team, when we were children. So did video games. Now many of us are parents and we want to share with our kids the great experiences we had, but also the completely new ones made possible by cutting-edge technology like Kinect for Xbox 360. So it’s a labour of love on many levels.”
