Motion Control Games for the Razer Hydra (or Stem)

I purchased a razer hydra, because it looked awesome, but it ended up not doing what I wanted, so I learned to program and started making my own games for it.

They're all freeware, and can be modded in blender game engine (also freeware).

Tofu Ally Motion Control Game Title!

Tofu Alley - Razer Hydra Exclusive Motion Control Minigame

Tofu is flying out of a dark alley into the streets of citiopolis, and there is only one way to stop it! You!

You, great master of the flying bats, have been chosen to save the city from Dr. Vegetarious' flying tofu. You must keep the city safe until the mayor bans flying tofu forever.

This minigame demonstrates one of the many possibilities of motion control: the ability to reach right into the game, and swing the bats with 1:1 accuracy. The harder you swing in real life, the harder you hit in the game.

You've never played like this before. It's not a gimmick, it's a new genre. It's the way you always wanted to play.

Availible Now.

Additional Information

2 Players Coop availible: you each get one bat.
Network Play Unavailible.

3rd and 4th players control tofu using keyboards.

You cannot play the game without a Hydra.

Interlaced, Side by Side, and Anaglyph 3D are supported.

You cannot use nVision 3D to play this game, because nVidia disables OpenGL 3D on gaming cards.

You're given control of a robot, and its hand movement follows your own, giving you unprecedented access to 1:1 sword fighting, wrestling moves, dual wielding, dismembering robots, shooting behind yourself, and in general, wreaking more havoc than you could imagine.
