Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the man in Canabalt? We haven't because, frankly, we've sent the little guy hurtling to his death very, very often. If your own morbid curiosity can overcome this grisly truth, you may be interested in Walk the Line, a Kinect project developed by students at ENJMIN, a games and interactive media school in France.

Walk the Line tasks players with escaping a city as it falls down around them, physically dodging obstacles and leaping over chasms. You can see the action in the (all too brief) trailer above. We just hope the folks at Kinect Fun Labs – or even the good people at Microsoft Studios – are watching too.
