A Fantasy Game Where Your Actual Voice is Your Only Friend

While Kinect developers struggle to wrangle a decent non-dancing game experience out of Microsoft's peripheral, indie PC studio Indomitus Games are working on a PC game where you need a microphone. Because your voice will be the only way you can get stuff done.

In Verbis Virtus is an upcoming fantasy title where you play as some kind of magician, and to cast the spells required to overcome puzzles you need to actually say the words.

Which might get tiring depending on the variety of spells, but I'm going to remain optimistic, because the trailer above looks pretty good!

If you want to try it out now, there's a demo available on Indomitus' site.

We'll be speechless? That's your tagline? What's the point of making a game where our voice is required if said game will render us mute?!

Why not, 'So let it be said, so shall it be done'? It works. And every pre-order comes with your very own Michael McDonald to provide backup vocals for your commands.
