byLazer Lips is a voice controlled singing game. The player uses the pitch of their voice to control an on screen character in a side scrolling shmup style game.
I wanted to make a game which would challenge traditional input styles whilst still remaining accessible to players at home. I decided to try to make use of some fairly ubiquitous hardware, the microphone and camera on most laptops. Whilst these input mechanisms may seem old and dull, they are rarely used in games, and can still produce novel and exciting experiences.
The game draws on mechanics used in Singstar, experimental games like Pew Pew, and of course traditional games from the sidescrolling shmup genre.
