Closer is a game for two people: to start you must stand close together, and to succeed you must work together.
Closer uses a Kinect to track the movement of the players’ bodies, and draws a single shared playable character exactly at the space between the players, growing and shrinking with their proximity and moving as they move.
Here’s a video of the first prototype.
The players must navigate difficulties, win points, and avoid death together, as each player has equal control in the outcome of the game.
