Tim Schafer’s Sesame Street game already showing tremendous signs of progress

Development on Double Fine’s upcoming Kinect project, Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster, has come a long way since it was announced just a few hours ago. In this EXCLUSIVE YouTube video entitled “fur rendering test” Mr. Schafer demonstrates just how realistically one can render gluttonous puppets in just a few minutes time. Pure Sorcery!

    I spot an Invader Zim and Katamari's Prince in the background. Man has good taste.

    It looks even better if you put on the Inception soundtrack while he shows off the "graphics"!

    I love Tim Shafer. I've mentioned this before, I think, but he did spend an hour staring at my ass once. I was playing human stanchion for his line at PAX '09.

    @GamesRadarChrisAntista You now have me terribly excited about a game I'd need to spend about £150 to spend. The worst thing about that? You did it jokingly with four words. 'Rubber Ducky preorder bonus'

    It really is a testament to the digital wizardry of Double Fine. Note how Mr. Monster reacts to the precise movement of Tim's hand in 100% 1:1 real-time?! Puppets: The Original Motion Controller!

    OMG!!!! That is the best graphics I seen to date. Your system will explode for just trying to run that. Wow I will play the yoyo segment of the game for hours.

    Haha, you had me going for a second... Stuff like this is what keeps me confident in Schafer and Company, even when it seems like they might have finally lost it.
