If you remember seventh grade parties or
awkward family picnics, you more than likely remember the game of Twister. Now,
Majesco Entertainment has announced a partnership with toy maker Hasbro to
bring the classic bendy party game into the 21st century with
Twister Mania for Xbox Kinect.
Twister Mania will support up to eight
limber players and include three game modes with 16 variations that more or
less consist of bending into different positions and shapes, and mocking other
players as they attempt to do the same. Just some of the game types include
Twist & Fit, a play on the Human Tetris formula; Shape Frenzy, a game
involving shapes...and frenzies; and Spot On, a contest where players try to
out-pose their competition.
Majesco is still riding high off its
success with the Zumba Fitness franchise. Nevertheless, its CEO Jesse Sutton
believes Twister Mania can show the world Majesco has more than a few motion
sensing tricks up its sleeves, telling Reuters, "Investors
right now just look at Zumba, but Twister is definitely one of the products we
see as a major potential hit."
Twister Mania will spin into game
stores this November.
