Apparently two mini-game Kinect portions were to be throwing tomatoes at people and sculpting statues. Both weren't revolutionary enough.
Yes I'm aware of the pun, given Fable III's awesome looking revolutionary theme. The tomato throwing while probably fun initially would just get to dull too quickly, but then it was never explained how this mini-game was to work exactly.
The other was statue sculpting but again nothing was revealed as to how this feature would have been implemented - do we pretend to chisel away at some on screen marble, or do we strike a pose for Kinect to capture and then display in Albion?
"I think something like Fable would be a fantastic experience with Kinect, but here is the thing," Peter Molyneux, "Kinect is so different to any other device that is out there — because it makes us designers have to go back to the drawing board."
"To make the experience that Fable can give Kinect and Kinect can give Fable is going to take a little bit of time....It takes us time to craft that experience into something really cool." Fable III releases on Xbox 360 October 29th in Europe, and on PC later.
