Double Fine Happy Action Theater announced

Tuesday, 18th October 2011 23:17 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Tim Schafer’s first project since Brütal Legend is an all-ages Kinect title called Double Fine Happy Action Theater.

OXM reports the game is due during the holiday season and is aimed at “three-year-olds or college dorm rooms full of drunken 20-year-olds”. The game is capable of recognising up to four players at once.

A suite of eighteen experiences, each lasting just a few minutes each, offers a cycling playlist which turns your gaming space into virtual playgrounds like lava pits, fill it with balloons, or populates it with time-delayed snapshots of yourself.

The game was apparently announced as part of a Kinect-focused event in New York today. No word yet on availability or pricing. Check out a video below.

Double Fine Happy Action Theater is studio founder Schafer’s first time up to bat since Brütal Legend; the team’s intermittent releases Costume Quest, Stacking, Iron Brigade and Once Upon a Monster have been helmed by colleagues, the result of the company’s productive Amnesia Fortnights.

    This actually looks pretty fun for what it is.
    I’d prefer them to work on games for me though.
