Description

Double Fine Happy Action Theater is a Kinect-only party game that consists of eighteen modes. Many of them are open-ended and cannot be completed. Instead they aim to entertain one or more players and encourages experimentation. Up to six players can be tracked at the same time.

Some modes render the players' silhouettes, but most of them make use of augmented reality. The camera captures the player's environment and displays it on the screen with new elements superimposed, along with the player himself. That way the player can move through a lava pit and interact with the flow, "wipe out" another players to make them disappear for a short time, stand still as a statue to lure pigeons, move underwater, throw snowballs at the screen, or play a version of Space Invaders where the defending craft is rendered with a snapshot of the player's head. In another mode a series of five pictures are taken that are cloned. Players can use the technique to create images where they kick themselves or shake their own hand.

All activities are available right away and can be selected from the main menu. There is also a party mode where a mix of different activities is created.
