Space Between is a 2D puzzle game based on voice commands and gesture sets found within Intel's Perceptual Computing SDK in which a player communicates with, guides, and teaches a creature in an abstract virtual world. The goal of the game is to progress and survive in the world as long as possible by showing the creature how and when to perform certain actions as well as watching and listening for cues the creature gives the player. The creature will learn to associate gestures and voice commands with game actions and will perform them on its own unless otherwise dictated by the player. In addition, the player will be able to perform actions within the environment using traditional input devices such as a mouse and keyboard. Using musical tones and sounds, the creature can communicate with the player. The player must learn to respond to these communications as they will be vital clues to solving puzzles within the world. The hybrid of voice, gesture, and traditional input modalities as well as the unique mechanic of two way communication between the player and creature creates a unique experience that both highlights the functionality of Intel's Perceptual Computing SDK and gives players an experience not currently found in games today.

Software developers by the thousands visited the Intel Software booth at the sold-out Microsoft Build conference April 2 – 4 in San Francisco’s Moscone Center. They were able to learn about how the Intel® Developer Zone provides world-class knowledge, tools and support for Windows 8 cross platform apps.

When Intel put a call out for apps that would transform the way we interface with traditional PCs, Jacob and Melissa Pennock, founders of Unicorn Forest Games, entered their spell-casting game, Head of the Order*, into the Intel® Perceptual Computing Challenge. They took home a top prize.
Cos'è Unity 3D
Unity 3D è uno strumento multipiattaforma per la creazione di applicazioni grafiche 3D come giochi o simulatori. È disponibile sia per Windows che per Mac Os X e permette di esportare i propri progetti su tutte le principali piattaforme esistenti, dalle console ai dispositivi mobili.
Perchè Unity 3D
Que educação e jogos estão cada vez mais ligadas, não há duvidas, ainda mais quando o jogo é em RA!
