Endemol Games U.K. will launch one of the world’s first motion control social games, Total Wipeout: Big Ball Run, based on Endemol's TV show "Total Wipeout." The branded game will launch in the U.K. this month on Facebook, and will also be available as a downloadable application on totalwipeout.co.uk.
Total Wipeout: Big Ball Run is a virtual obstacle course which mirrors the television show. Players navigate the obstacle course using their bodies as the controller. The motion control has been developed and patented by OmniMotion Technology.
With an initial launch in the U.K., Endemol is looking to roll the game out internationally. The global smash hit, Wipeout is produced for 28 different territories including the U.S., Russia, Argentina, Australia and the Middle East.
"This is a truly ground breaking product and it’s hugely exciting that this is one of the first games of this type to launch on Facebook," says Jurian van der Meer, managing director for Endemol Games. "Total Wipeout easily lends itself to branded gaming applications and we think viewers of the TV show will love motion sensor technology. Total Wipeout: Big Ball Run will be truly accessible as it offers value for money to fans- all players need is a webcam and their own body."
