Leap Motion owners better start stretching their air keytar muscles now that Double Fine's Dropchord is available for purchase in the Airpsace store for both PC and Mac. In terms of innovation, the game itself isn't particularly earth-shattering -- if a score-based arcade game and a music visualizer got together and had a baby, it would be Dropchord. What's enough to pique our interest is the fact that its gesture controls have been optimized for use with Leap Motion, allowing it to showcase the device's motion-activated potential. That being said, the game is also heading to other platforms in the near future. It'll land on OUYA on July 31st and iOS and Android devices on August 1st. You can check out the full press release after the break or head on over to Airspace to purchase the game for $2.99.
