The game is controlled by the player’s brainwaves via the PLX XWave headset which is powered by NeuroSky’s technology.
“In the game, the player is captured by a gentleman zombie, who wants a nice dish of brains for dinner. Luckily for the player, the zombie has perfect manners and won’t eat brains without a spoon. The player must try to stay alive as long as possible by bending the zombie’s spoons with his focus level,” a press release describes.
The game is available in the App store.
Meanwhile, the Icelandic company Locatify has released the SmartGuide North Atlantic app for iPhones and iPads also available in the App store.
A guide tells users tales from the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland and northern Norway, presenting their cultures with pictures and decorated maps.
The app uses GPS technology and automatically starts in the right places so that the user can enjoy a personal tour of the area. It can also be used as an interactive guidebook.
Later this month the app will also become available for Android operating systems.
