Konami’s First Downloadable Kinect Game Is Leedmees


Puddle isn’t the only puzzle game Konami are publishing; they’re also doing one called Leedmees for Kinect on Xbox Live Arcade. Leedmees has a quirky premise — you have to move your body to create bridges and walkways for the Leedmee creatures to walk on, so they don’t plummet to their doom or get steamrolled.


You can position your arms to make bridges across stages, or push switches with your legs and gather the creatures and transfer them to another part of the screen. As you go through the game, more and more Leedmees will be onscreen at the same time and it’ll start to get tougher to save them all. Konami say Leedmees has 50 stages.


Leedmees also allows 2 players to work together in a co-op mode to tackle 12 specially-created levels, using their combined bodies to create safe routes. Konami have Leedmees on track for a summer release.
