Game: Quick or Dead

Quick or Dead is a dueling game that uses the Kinect sensor to give players the opportunity to play against each other directly, creating the real feelings of doubt, anxiety, and excitement of a duel. Players face each other and wait for the sound of a heartbeat to cease. Players strike a pose, using a gun motion, whip motion, or dodge motion with to try to defeat each other. Players play best-of five duels, and the heartbeat timer increases as the intensity of the duel increases. When one player is defeated, the game re-sets for new players who continue the fight for control of the town. If you don't have a Kinect, you can still play the game. Just use keys Q-A-Z for The Sheriff and O-K-M for the Outlaw, for Whip, Gun, and Dodge actions, respectively.


Stay Inside The Box: The whole game takes place in just one screen, no scrolling or changing screens in any way is allowed.
I’m Board: Make a game that is inspired by, but not a simulation of, a popular board game.
The Truth is Out There: Some external real world element, such as weather, time of the day, etc, affects gameplay. It MUST affect gameplay and can’t be only a scenario element.
Inclusive: The game is specifically designed to include people with a given disability.
