Kinnectimals

While at BAF game this year, the Frontier game development team was represented by two of its head animators, who helped create some of the animation for one of the Kinnect’s most famous titles to date, “Kinnectimals”.
There were over 200 separate animations that each cub could perform and each animation had to blend seamlessly into each other.
The characters themselves are adorable and are very true to the playful nature of cats, but the animators at frontier also looked to dogs for a source of reference and even themselves.

The demonstration above may be a bit sickly sweet, (like the tiger’s namesake) but it really does demonstrate a complex range of commands and sensitivity to interaction on the part of the Kinnect.
