Kick Ass Kung-Fu is an immersive game installation that transforms computer gaming into a visual, physical performance like dance or gymnastics. You can fight and defy gravity like Kung-Fu movie stars - only there's no need for wires or post-production.

The game takes place on a five metre cushioned playmat designed for martial arts and acrobatics training. Using custom built computer vision technology to identify and map movement the audience are immersed in an artificial reality where the usual laws of physics no longer apply. Your image is transposed into a cartoon style world displayed on two large scale projection screens at opposite ends of the playmat.

 

Player movements are exaggerated so that you appear to run faster and jump higher. You can wield any weapon, and pose and shout to supercharge yourself with 'Chi energy'. The number of simultaneous players is not limited, which encourages multiple users to join in the oddly exhilarating mayhem while pitting your wits against some of the world's most dangerous men, including George Bush and Bruce Lee.

Kick Ass Kung-Fu is created by Animaatiokone Industries Co-op.
