The prologue of Blue Estate, Hesaw's dark comedy shooter, is out now for free on the Leap Motion Airspace Store. It costs absolutely nothing for a "limited time" and will eventually be $4. The prologue includes the first two levels of the game.
Blue Estate is a rails shooter based on the Image comic series of the same name, and features a cast of gritty characters saying funny things while doing dirty deeds. With the Leap Motion controller, Blue Estate is played with one finger, swiping and holding steady to dodge and shoot. We got our hands on Blue Estate at Gamescom and found it to be unapologetically raunchy – for better or worse.

About The Blue Estate Prologue
The Prologue introduces you to the first two levels of the game as the belligerent Tony Luciano looking to find Cherry Popz, who was abducted by the Sik Brothers gang. Experience the smoothness of motion control in a rail shooter as you fight for Tony's life with only one finger against the most absurd and dangerous obstacles. The prologue takes you through a burlesque show, a steam bath, secret doors and dangerous mops. An uncooperative hairstyle adds a visual challenge that might just get Tony killed a dozen times over by the crashing waves of bullets and swords between him and survival.
