Control pads, gyroscopes, accelerometers, Kinect: all old hat. The future of game control, according to one imaginative indie developer, is speech.
Out this week on Xbox Live Indie Games for 240 Microsoft Points, PewPewPewPewPewPewPewPewPew is a side-scrolling shoot 'em up that's controlled entirely via a microphone.
Saying "Pew" into the mic makes the game's hero simultaneously fire projectiles and boost his jet pack, while shouting unleashes your smart bomb.
A Rock Band mic is recommended, though any Xbox 360-compatible device will work, including headsets.
Check out the video, spotted by Siliconera, below to see exactly how Incredible Ape's quirky creation works.
