Double Fine announces Dropchord, headed to PCs with Leap Motion Controller and iOS

Dropchord, a "music-driven score challenge game," is in development for iOS devices and PCs with the gesture-based Leap Motion Controller, according to a press release from Double Fine Productions.

"The Leap Motion Controller is the world's most accurate 3D motion control device," said Andy Miller, president and COO of Leap Motion. "It allows people to play Dropchord on their computer entirely by moving their hands and fingers in the air."

The development team at Double Fine is being helmed by "key members" of the team behind Kinect Party, a gesture-based game released late last year for the Xbox 360. Double Fine is also partnering with Dracogen Strategic Investments for the game's funding.

Dropchord is scheduled for release "later this year" on Windows PC, Mac and iOS. The game will be on display March 9-11 at Leap Motion's South by Southwest booth, and a playable demo will be shown in Double Fine's PAX East booth later this month. Leap Motion announced last week that the Leap Motion Controller will be released in May.
