Double Fine dips back into music with Dropchord

Dropchord is described by developer Double Fine Productions as "a music-driven score challenge game" from the same core team that created Kinect Party. Double Fine will offer a glimpse of the game, which supports the upcoming Leap Motion Controller shipping to Best Buy in May, at this weekend's SXSW show in Austin, Texas. A playable build will be on-hand at PAX East later this month.

Dropchord will ship this year on Mac OS X, Windows PC and iOS devices, and it'll be available first in Leap Motion's Airspace app store. %Gallery-181061%

San Francisco, CA - March 7, 2013 -- Double Fine Productions today announced Dropchord, a new music-driven score challenge game developed for the revolutionary Leap Motion Controller as well as iOS devices.

Dropchord features fast-paced and addictive gameplay with a focus on music and visual effects. It is being developed by key members of the team behind Double Fine's acclaimed Xbox 360 Kinect title Kinect Party.

"Two questions," added Dracogen founder Steven Dengler. "What is a Leap and when do I get mine?"

"The Leap Motion Controller is the world's most accurate 3-D motion control device. It allows people to play Dropchord on their computer entirely by moving their hands and fingers in the air," explained Andy Miller, President and COO of Leap Motion. "We're going to start shipping in May."

"That means," said Steve, as wonder filled his heart, "that I might never need to wash my hands again!"

Dropchord will ship later this year for Windows, Mac, and iOS devices. It will first be available in Airspace, Leap Motion's application store.

Catch a sneak peak of Dropchord at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas this Saturday, March 9 - Monday, March 11 at the Leap Motion Experience. A playable demo will also be shown in Double Fine's booth at PAX East in Boston later this month.
