With the introduction of the Kinect, Microsoft has had us jumping around our living rooms for the better part of a year now. While we can't replace the lamps we've broken, or get the dog to trust us again, there have been few games that have made voice commands an imperative part of the game.
Indie developers, Indomitus Games, are hoping to change that. They're working on a PC game where you speaking up is the only way to play. Verbis Virtus is a forth-coming fantasy title that requires players to speak commands, as a fledgling magician, in order to cast spells and solve puzzles/
The trailer looks pretty dope, but yelling "lightning bolt" at your computer screen could get repetitive, but if this game is a succsess, hopefully Microsoft tightens up their Kinect game. Play a free demo of the game here.
