In our game, you take on the role of a magical tree in a forest. A fire has started, and your job is to stop the fire before it spreads and burns down the rest of the forest. You can do this by redirecting rain droplets through pathways in your tree body and into the fire to extinguish it.
Our game is a full body Kinect experience that guides you to pose and balance to successfully make your way through the game. A player is guided with progressively trickier poses that require more and more body parts before hitting the end.
