Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster Dev Diary Focuses On the Kiddies

The Xbox 360 and Kinect motion controller sold a ridiculous amount of units last week.  If you're a new Kinect owner, and still have some holiday shopping to do for the kids, you may want to check out Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster.  This new video focuses on the family aspect of the game.  We really liked the title ourselves, giving it a  4.5 out of 5 in our Co-Op Review.  If you want to get your youngsters into gaming, but still want them active, this is a pretty cool option.

Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster Co-Op Review

It's amazing what a little time can do to your perspective of things. When I founded Co-Optimus a game like Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster wouldn’t have even been on my radar - I was a man that cared more about the next Halo then I did about the next casual or kids title. But now as the father of a two and a half year old girl, Once Upon a Monster instantly appealed to me as a way to entertain her and enjoy something with her, without having to watch another episode of The Fresh Beat Band.

Gather the Kids for Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster

I know what you're thinking; "Oh great, another kids game for the Kinect."  And you'd be right!  But what separates Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster from other Kinect titles?  Tim.

New Once Upon a Monster Trailer Stars Tim Schafer

It's been awhile since we've reported on the upcoming Double Fine Kinect game, Once Upon A Monster. With its October release fast approaching, the studio has released a trailer for the game, co-starring Tim Schafer and Cookie Monster. While the trailer is short on information about the actual game (and never actually answers the question of whether an Xbox 360 can play a chocolate chip cookie), it serves as a reminder that Double Fine will certainly be applying their classic humor to this young kids game.
