Kinect games for Windows

Kinect Games for PC. Use Kinect for Xbox One sensor with an adapter to play on a Windows 8.1 or 10 computer.

Astronaut Journey

There's been an accident with your spaceship, alone in space, far away from home. Can you make it back home to earth with nothing but your Jetpack and a raygun? Fly home to earth and fight alien bots and monsters, land on planetcaves to find resources. Finally, in reentry to Earth, watch out for spacejunk!


Available on Microsoft Store

The current updated version on Microsoft Store now has the ability to save position in game (it takes time to reach Earth) and the option to play in an easy, seated mode. Finally for those of us who are fan of 3D Anaglyph vision, you now have the option to fly in that mode, just use ordinary 3D anaglyph glasses. (Like the ones used to watch Creature from the Black Lagoon on TV for example.)

Country Ramble Games

Country Ramble Games consists of three different variations of walking games, BubbleWalk, PokerWalk and BingoWalk. You walk around in the countryside, trying to either pop bubbles, collect cards to get a good poker hand or find bingo items. The games are intended both as recreation and as a way to get exercise in a simple way. Mind you, these are not action games. Country Ramble Games may be played by people with impaired mobility or a disability as well as people who want a little more than an ordinary walk, just level the step height button. The games are simple in their design and will suit people also with less experience in computer gaming, perhaps even with cognitive difficulties. As results can be saved and viewed in plotted line graphs or in high score tables, the games could also be useful in a clinical context, such as in stroke rehabilitation. The Music in the games consists of a mix of old folktunes (walking tunes), classical pieces with a somewhat modern arrangement. Above all they are for having fun in an uncomplicated way!

Wall Ball
In Wall Ball for Kinect you kick ball against a Wall. You get one point each time you hit the wall (not that difficult), you can also get extra points if you hit objects that pop up sometimes. Avoid letting the ball touch the area behind you or you could lose balls (you start with five balls).

Mixxus Studio's Kinect V2 games strives to design them both suitable for people with impaired mobility as well as for those looking for some challenging exercise.
To play Kinect on your PC, you need (a computer) a Kinect camera for Xbox One (or Kinect for Windows) and an adapter, a large monitor or TV screen is preferable. 
The manufacturing of the Kinect sensor and adapter has been discontinued but you can still download the SDK and view system requirements for Kinect from Microsoft's download center.
We are waiting for the new Kinect for Azure to see if it is possible to make updates of the games above and create new ones!

Country Ramble Games



Both Full and Demo version of Country Ramble Games available on Windows Store!

(It's easy to check if Kinect is working with your Windows/Graphic card version using the Kinect software Tools.) 


Download from Windows Store


The Demo version lets you play about 1/4 of the lane length so you can get the hang of it.


Download from Windows Store

Note that in the game the default step height is set to 1."Very low to be easy to play. If you experience "self triggering", that is, you're "moving" along the road without you are making any step movement, either place yourself in a better position for the Kinect sensor's "view", or set step height to 2. "Low".

Updated fix for default graphics quality settings in Windows Store versions
