Biofeedback Game Soothes Minds 14

Posted by simoniker

Thanks to GameSpot for their story trailing the November release of the biofeedback based PC/Mac game, Wild Divine. This previously Slashdot-covered, very unconventional title uses a "biofeedback component [to] measure a player's galvanic skin response (GSR) and heart rate variability", and in a quoted gameplay example, "...a player who's required to lower a floating feather won't be able to do it until moving into a somewhat meditative state." Unfortunately, the newly announced "introductory price of $129.95", including biofeedback hardware, may cause a little muscle tension, but the official site has new info on hands-on demo locations.

    People who use the word sumptuous need to a football to the groin.
