Description
Release date: 2017
Challenge your friends to epic battles towards lots of fun in TRANKIES' WORLD! Test your abilities in a whole new way of playing with Kinect :


GamePlay
Pretty simple! Hit your friends the most you can within the match time. The player with the best score wins. Your left arm is your directional button: Move it to make your Trankie go to the left and right:


Then, open you left hand to jump:

Ps. Keep your left hand open to glide to the floor!

Your right arm is your weapon. Move it around to aim to different locations:


Then, open your right hand to shoot:

Ps. Keep your right hand closed to charge for a PowerUp projectile!


Story
In a far away galaxy, the Trankies' World, where everything works with gesture commands, our two heroes fight to decide which TV channel to watch! Their father, an experient game designer, has a brilliant idea: "Why don´t we decide it in a game??"

In this first release of the game, we have one Tutorial / Level Selection Stage, which is the Trankies' Spaceship:


And four arenas to be explored:

Forest:


Desert:


Snowstorm:


And Flying Circus:


Our Differential
Trankies' World is based on lots of critiques from people who played games with motion sensors. We tried to understand what kind of features that people missed. Then, we came up with a party game that:
  • Does not require you to jump, dance or even stand up, but is still competitive enough to make you have fun with friends
  • Implements motion capture features in the most responsive and efficient ways we could make to avoid frustration
  • Perform a passive control of characters based on distances among players' joints, simulating a joystick


Validation
Around 1000 people played Trankies' World in GamePlay sessions we made in

Shopping Malls:


Gaming Conferences:


Houses of Friends:


And Parties:




Around 90% of the feedback we received was positive! This encouraged us to post the game here. We also received precious critiques to improve the game in all aspects.

Finally, we competed with Trankies' World in Imagine Cup 2015 [www.imaginecup.com]. The competition benefited the game with lots of also important feedback. Plus, Trankies' World was the champion of the National Phase of the Cup (in Brazil) and received two honorable mentions in the International Phase:



Thank you for reading all this! Hope you guys enjoyed the idea. We appreciate your feedback, critiques and votes =)
