Buzz! Developer Impressed By Kinect

Relentless Software, creators of the hit Playstation quiz series Buzz! seem to have their eyes set firmly on Kinect now that they're free to work on other systems.

"The removal of the controller is a stroke of genius," Relentless co-founder and executive director Andrew Eades told Eurogamer.

"People can actually have a go because they don't feel intimidated by this weird DualShock controller or the Xbox controller.

"Of course I'd consider any game for Kinect. And the reason is because Kinect is amazing. It's the exact right technology for now. It's given our sector a new lease of life. We'd be mad to not look into Kinect and what we can do.

"The Kinect audience that Microsoft is going after is exactly the audience that we've spoken about forever. Since we started we've said we make games for everyone and that's exactly what Kinect is about, making gaming available to anybody.

Although Eades wouldn't confirm nor deny whether Relentless are currently working on a Kinect title, we can rule out a variation on their Buzz! series which is owned by Sony. Eades can, however, see their murder mystery title, Blue Toad Murder Files, working well with Kinect.

"It would be really suitable for that." said Eades.

"There's a lot of hurdles in practice, but why not? I mean I'd love to do it. I'd love to do it multi-platform but I think you'd have to get PlayStation and Xbox to agree with each other on that."
