Raving Rabbids Alive & Kicking (Some AR)

Yes, I still exist.  Sorry, I’ve been out of the country for the last few weeks.  But my travels did give me a glimpse into a fantastic game sporting the A and the R — Raving Rabbids.  If you’re not familiar with the series, Raving Rabbids are the insanity pills of the gaming industry.  Nothing like jerking your carrot juice in front of a bar full of people, laughing and pointing the whole time (yes, this is a game, not an obscene act.)

The game is for the Microsoft Kinect only and utilizes the characters to immerse you into their insanity.  What I love about the Rabbids and AR is that it gets you out of the gimmick and into AR.  Right now what holds most applications of AR back is that they’re focused on the trick and not telling a good story.  Rabbids are weird and at times, unexplainable, but playing their games helps you forget there’s a thing called AR at all.  And that’s a good thing.

Looking forward to when this game comes out.

  1. Of course, just can’t wait though.. keep us posted.

  2. As an AR fan, this is great.
    As a gamer though, I’m a bit sick of these games coming out what seems like 2-3 times a year now.

    Rayman Origins on the other hand, looks lovely….

    Incidently, theres also a bunch of interactive “toys” for the Kinect announced which are all ARish. (including a neat 3d object-scanning ability)
