E3 2011: Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest Announced, Has Bows, Arrows and Throwing Stars

on June 6, 2011 9:06 PM

Sony just announced a new Move-only game titled Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest, which puts you in the character of, let me guess here, Deadmund? I assume that’s him, anyway. This is basically a 1-to-1 Move title where what you do with your movements is what you get on screen. It’s set, obviously, in medieval times, so that is the visual inspiration for the title.

Throughout the demo at the Sony conference, many different aspects of the game were shown off, such as the variety of weapons. There are naturally swords, shields and bows (with arrows!), but did anyone guess throwing stars? That is pretty swanky. There are also puzzle and platforming elements to the title, which you must overcome to progress.

Finally, we see that there are many ways to manipulate the environment to help you progress, hamper your enemies or to complete puzzles and move on through the game. Medieval Moves: Deadmund’s Quest is set to launch this Fall. It’s no Sorcery, but it will do in a pinch.
