IndieCade 2012: Open Source and Hit Me!

Both of the blew me away, I tired them both and they were beyond the social norms of gaming. Open Source is echo-location pong. So you put on headphones and have to listen to the ball  coming it uses to Kinects to work and requires good hearing. I'm glad I did it before covering the Haunted Hayride with field reporter Natalie D., ever wonder what it feels like to be taking down by a superhuman scream, well I think I do.

Hit Me! had me trying to press a button on someone head and he was taller than me. If you want to rise up to the occasion it could be a lot of fun. I don't think it well ever become a major sport, but trying something new that doesn't risk STD's is fine in my book.
