The Winds of Orbis

This is exactly what we need. Forward thinking game designers at Carnagie Mellon's Entertainment Technology Center developed The Winds of Orbis game by incorporating the Wii-mote and a DDR pad. The producer/designer Garth DeAngelis is a master's degree student in entertainment technology. They wanted to create a game in which children could become a hero and run and jump around like Zelda or Mario. Bravo!

*UPDATE 2008-06-10 - Garth posted an article about Orbis at Gamasutra titled
"Combating Child Obesity: Helping Kids Feel Better by Doing What They Love"
