How it works
Soar through the sky, avoid oncoming obstacles, collect fuel packs, and propel yourself through the atmosphere into outer space in this digital-physical hybrid game prototype made in just 48 hours.
He Decided To Fly is an endless, 2D vertical scroller where you control a flying robot by moving your arms left and right in physical space in front of the screen via a Microsoft Kinect.
The game’s physical control scheme—familiar to anyone who's ever imagined taking off in Tony Stark's Iron Man suit—combinesthe sense of digital embodiment with tight a level design, and a fast-paced game flow.
