Dinosaur Escaping, Motion Controlled Game Announced For Nintendo DSi


image The Nintendo DSi can do motion control with the camera and Motion Cortex software from Realeyes3D. HI Games used both to make Katamuction, a DSiWare game which has players run from a hungry Tyrannosaurus Rex.


Instead of pressing buttons, players tilt their DSi left, right, up, and down to dodge a dinosaur bite. An arrow on the bottom screen tells you which way to flick the system. A simple game that uses the DSi’s hardware in a novel way.


If you imported a Japanese DSi you can get Katamuction on December 24 for 500 DSiWare points ($5). Katamuction hasn’t been announced anywhere else, but Xseed localized Drill Sergeant Mindstorm from HI Games so there’s a chance they might pick this up.
