Swordfighting for Games Kickstarter with Gabe Newell Cameo

Share |

A new Kickstarter project aims to bring better and more realistic swordfighting to video games with sword-like controllers. The video on the Kickstarter page explains the project and also includes a hilarious cameo appearance by Gabe Newell working on a crowbar, who is known to have a significant knife collection.

“In the last couple of years, affordable new gear has come on the market that makes it possible to move, and control a swordfighter’s actions, in a much more intuitive way than pulling a plastic trigger or pounding a key on a keyboard. So it’s time to step back, dump the tired conventions that have grown up around trigger-based sword games, and build something that will enable players to inhabit the mind, body, and world of a real swordfighter.”
