Yes, it’s that time of year again! Game Developers Conference 2012 at San Francisco. If you’ll be there, you can try our mind-controlled games, W.I.L.D. and 28 Spoons Later, at the NeuroSky booth in the Expo, which starts Wednesday. Go on by booth #1917 and look for our MindGames logo.
I know we covered this Icelandic outfit not too long ago, but I find these games for brainwave readers and smartphones so uniquely interesting. MindGames’ newly released iPhone/iPad game, called 28 Spoons Later, puts you in the situation where you’re captured by a gentleman zombie who would like to eat a dish of brains for dinner, but will only do so with a spoon. The game is controlled by a PLX XWave headset that reads your brain’s focus level. By concentrating, you can bend the zombie’s spoons with your mind and stay alive as long as possible.
