Gameplay is still unclear, but the lights are pretty. Instabuy!

Totally buying this tonight as I'm trying to complete all of Double Fine's games during 2013. I assume it has Game Center achievements (the project lead at DF assured me it did, but I'm keen to see the list for myself)?

Just FYI if you're interested in the music, all of them are already available for download on iTunes.

Double Fine

I just watched a video on Kotaku yesterday of Mike Fahey playing Dropcord on the Leap Motion controller and it was pretty badass.

Not sure how it'll work on the ipad.

Check it out at the 2 minute mark.

Based on the video you posted, i think you'll be touching where you instead point.

Doesnt look like a rhythm game at all. Kinda disappointed, but im probably gon get this still. Been eyeing this for a while now.

Yeah the thing I hate about this design is that your hand will be covering the entire screen! It looks like a pretty cool game with intense music and visuals but damned if we can enjoy them!
