ST. JOHN’S, NEWFOUNDLAND & LABRADOR – Mar 25, 2015 – Other Ocean Group, developer of award-winning games, in partnership with Thalmic Labs, today launched Kaiju Carnage; a new and dynamic PC game controlled by the Myo Armband. In Kaiju Carnage, players use the recently launched Myo armband, a gesture control device, to manipulate and control a giant Kaiju to destroy cities using its massive claws, crushing fists, and nuclear death laser.
Kaiju Carnage makes use of the Myo armband’s highly sensitive motion sensor, combined with gesture recognition, to turn the player’s arm into a Kaiju claw. Make a fist to blow up buildings, shoot laser beams from the palm of your hand, and slash through buildings and enemies with the swing of your arm.
“Harnessing the power of the Myo armband to bring Kaiju Carnage to gaming audiences is the type of challenge our company thrives on,” said Other Ocean CEO Andrew Ayre. “We love partnering with companies such as Thalmic Labs who are at the forefront of interface technology, and we look forward to watching players get their hands on this new and unique experience.”
