Helsinki, Finland – May 14, 2010 – Virtual Air Guitar Company Ltd, the Helsinki –based independent game developer and computer vision specialist, today announced their in-development title, the immersive adventure and fighting game Kung-Fu LIVE.

Coming later this year to PlayStation® Network, Kung-Fu LIVE is an interactive experience unlike anything seen before. With accurate tracking and background removal, the player’s real-life image is transported inside the game. Boosted with super-human abilities, the player literally becomes the hero of the game.

“We have been working with camera games for over a decade, optimizing our FreeMotion® technology that incorporates the player in-game as the lead character,” says Teemu Mäki-Patola, CEO of Virtual Air Guitar Company Ltd. “FreeMotion® technology replaces the traditional game controller for consoles and PC, offering a whole new way to play video games. Kung-Fu LIVE will be one of the top notch PSEye and Move games coming to market this year.”

Kung-Fu LIVE is targeted at the broad audience as a game to be enjoyed in a social setting amongst family and friends. Toss away the gamepad and kick, jump, flip and throw punches against a growing swarm of baddies - Kung-Fu LIVE is all about hands-free, real-time movement and action.
