Description
Release date: 3rd quarter 2013
This is a music motion game and it’s not a dance game. It’s about “hand powers” -- creating intense visual effects with your hands to match a song challenge. It is also about creating your own challenges. The game runs on PC with Kinect or Asus Xtion.

We know Kinect is not liked on Steam! But we want to show that it can be used with a lot more precision and control than in the current XBox games. Most of all, we wish to offer this game to people who:
  • Have an interest in music beyond listening
  • Own a Kinect or similar device or have access to one
  • Enjoy focused hand movements (as in some martial arts)
    • (optional) Want to create playable music videos.

Visikord Challenge alpha is a mode of the Visikord interactive music visualizer (released).

Key Features
  • You are not the controller! You use the space around you as the controller. This gives a lot more precision.
  • Challenges are human-made, so the visuals hit the right notes in the song.
  • Besides the pre-made ones, the user can make own Challenge for any song in the Record mode.
    • (optional) The user can define a specific set of background images and videos to go with the Challenge in a custom sequence.

More Features
  • The game will be released with challenges plus songs for a few songs that we can distribute, and with challenges only for a few good popular songs.
  • Challenges can be shared. (They come without songs, so songs need to be in the user's library unless licensed for distribution.)
  • There are 12 "weapons" for visualization (more are coming).
  • Playing distance is less than is typical with Kinect -- 5-7 feet (1.5-2m) from the screen.
  • Rendering is at 60fps and under 100ms movement-to-effect latency.
  • Challenges will be hosted for free upload and download at Visikord.com.

System Requirements

OS:
  • Windows 7 / 8 / Vista / XP

Hardware:
  • Kinect for XBox / Kinect for Windows / Asus Xtion Pro / Xtion Pro Live / PrimeSense sensor
  • dual core CPU
  • Dedicated GPU / integrated AMD GPU / Intel HD 4000 (HD 3000 runs in VGA res) for 60 fps

I wonder how crazy the beats would get with Crucia music playing

if i had a kinect, i would totally be buying this game once it went on sale, it brings the greatness of a dancing game to the scoring platform of something like guitar hero or rockband, looks like an excellent game

Looks like a great game! Shame I dont have a kimect but this might just be worth getting one. Only thing that gets me tho it seems a bit to "flash" the visuals are nice but the burst of light covering the whole screen all the time and when its a fast part flashing so fast is not only annoying in a way but could also be a health risk to some people who are effected but flashing lights. If there was a way to tone down effects a bit I would totally buy this. Like even if it was just a dull or darker form of the graphics already it would be great. Anywho good luck with getting it out there it looks great so far!

I don't care much for motion gaming or the kinect but this does look cool. I don't own a kinect and probably wouldn't buy one for this but I will give you guys an upvote in case others would like to play your game. Good luck

Dan, much appreciated! I was thinking, since the game is in playable alpha, we could package it up for people who have access to Kinect (eg. own or can borrow one) to download it for free. We'd only ask that they get Flight of Icarus and/or Space Manoeuvres mp3 from Amazon so they can play. Anyone who is interested, please let us know!

You know, after seeing this game, I'm actually tempted to buy a Kinect just for it.
Reminds me of what the Eyetoy games should have been for the PS2. Never really gave any other camera games a chance since then and since I don't want or have an 360 or any intentions of getting an Xbone, I probably would never have got a Kinect.
This game has a lot of potential and looks very fun. Camera games done RIGHT.
Keep up the good work, have a Yes, Favourite and Follow from me :)
Good luck.

Thanks much! Unfortunately extracting the person's image is just too unreliable with regular webcams (and also the flat image they provide is a bit dull). But there's a new line of depth cams like Kinect coming out, one of them Senz3D from Intel and CreativeLabs which mounts on top of laptop screen/monitor, and I expect there will be a lot of PC software for it to justify the h/w purchase -- hopefully in less then a year and we'll definitely port the game to it. We're in this long term. PS. "BA DA BA BA BA" is a great way to put this song in ASCII. :-D

Thank you! We'll do our best.

Original and entertaining concept, fairly rare in greenlight. Good work. As long as it's bug-free and the look of the game is improved at it's release, this could really take off.
