Titan 4 Games licenses Silhouette for their first gesture-based coin-op game

Via

Remember Titan 4 Games? If not, I don’t blame you – we first reported that they were working on gesture-based (think Project Natal) coin-op games last October but since then we have heard nothing but silence. The website isn’t helpful either – I tried contacting them via the e-mail they have there and they never responded. So it was nice to finally hear something new about their developments today, as a press release went out detailing what the first game will be to use the technology which has been developed by Softkinetic. Titan 4 Games will release Silhouette as their first coin-op title, with it as “the first of many 3D camera games from Titan, and is a natural step in the company’s strategy.”

Now the question is, when will we see it? How much will it cost? Will they be offering games that will remain arcade exclusive (Silhouette is mentioned as being on track for an in-home release down the line, for PC and probably Project Natal)? Will they be showing off anything at an upcoming amusement trade show? I am enticed by the use of this technology in arcades, especially by getting it out there before Microsoft does with their Natal platform at the end of this year, I just hope that the information will be made available soon.

Here is Silhouette as shown at an nVidia conference. I’ll leave witty or snide remarks about how you’ll look in public doing this for the comments section. 😉
