Rare making cloud-based Kinect game

November 30, 2012 - Multi - Rumor
Source Says: Among the possibilities is - MASTERFUL INTRODUCTORY METAPHOR TIE-IN ALERT - a cloud-based Kinect game. Rare needs a principal network services engineer to help "push the boundaries of the Kinect hardware with our exciting new project". The lucky applicant will help develop "ambitious cloud services within our upcoming titles". The studio is also in the market for a principal physics engineer with "direct experience of implementing real-time physics in a synchronised network environment". Cloud-based Jenga, perhaps?

A little more excitingly, a gameplay engineer is required to work on something which sounds suspiciously like an Xbox 720 spin on Lionhead's defunct, much-mourned Milo and Kate.

"In this role, you will be a crucial part of a passionate team of gameplay engineers, working with designers and producers to create stunning, groundbreaking game entity reactions and input interpretation," notes the blurb. "During prototyping you will occasionally be working with extremely early prototype hardware co-developed with teams located off-site."
