Innergy: "Well Deserved"
Posted: Tuesday June 15th, 2010 by

With E3 starting yesterday the gaming news world is awash with snippets of info and videos. Among those videos is the introduction to a game called Innergy. The "demo" was given by Ubisoft's New IP Director Tommy Francois.

As Storm and I jabbered back and forth about we came to realize that we both just wanted to thwack the guy. And not for any "good reason". I can't really explain it to you. It might have been the feeling he conveyed. Or some kind of cynical response to psuedo-hippie rhetoric. We burned through several ideas. And all mind centered around basically dismissing the guy as a nutter. But the newspaper thwacking was the first and I think ultimately the best of the bunch.

So what is "Innergy" exactly? I've watched that part of the Ubisoft Press Conference probably 4 times now and still couldn't really tell you. The best way I can explain it is this. You put this little gadget on your finger and you breathe. That's it. That's the whole "game"; visually cued breathing excercises which are, I guess, designed to focus and center you. [more info]

Now is where you mock us for being jaded.

And yes. While I'm at E3, I do carry around a newspaper to bap developers on the nose with.
