Who's Interested in a Racing Game that Uses the Mic?

Hi everyone. We are looking to create a new game. One that combines racing with the mic. You blow into the mic to move. It's not a complex game, but more of a simple one. You compete to see how far you can travel within a set amount of time. Of course, there will be obstacles, checkpoints which give you time, and boost! There would also be a "garage" where you unlock new vehicles and each vehicle has different stats (faster, more boost etc). The game will also have OpenFeint for online leaderboards, achievements etc.

So who here would be interested in a game like that? We have already started laying out the basics of the gameplay, and we just want to know if there is a market for this kind of stuff. Let us know what you think. Please post below! Thanks!

Not too interested personally since I own an iPod Touch and don't have a mic for it You should probably keep in mind it'll mostly be iPhone owners that buy the game.

Not really because I own an iPod touch and plus what's really the point in having to use a mic to drive? Does It really make
a more enjoyable experience?

If you make a racer, make a proper 3d racer

And plus, if you blow through the mic, you can't see the screen and you say that its gonna have obstacles so I suggest you abandon your "project"

Plus no one can play that in public, or at night when the rest of the house is sleeping....

Stop while you're ahead....
