Sesame Street had a profound effect on me, and many members of the Double Fine team, when we were children. So did video games. Now many of us are parents and we want to share with our kids the great experiences we had, but also the completely new ones made possible by cutting-edge technology like Kinect for Xbox 360. So it’s a labor of love on many levels.Wait- what?
That's Tim Schafer on his development house's latest project. Double Fine may have struck out with titles like Psychonauts and Brutal Legend. They may have even found plenty of success in downloadable titles like Costume Quest and Stacking.
Now they're trying to find their way to Sesame Street. Can you tell them how to get there?
For the record: I didn't have to look up any Youtubevideos to remember the theme song to Sesame Street. I guess the PBS show with puppets by Jim Henson really did have an impact on children like me.
Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster is being developed for the Xbox 360's Kinect motion controller. Players will team up with Elmo and Cookie Monster while they explore the storybook game world.
