Johann Sebastian Joust @ Anime Boston!

Post by Flea » Thu May 23, 2013 8:00 am


Hey everyone. I will have a full 7 player Johann Sebastian Joust setup running some time between 6 and 11 on Friday and Saturday nights for you guys to check out. I am not exactly where we will be playing yet as you need a decent amount of room to play. If you have never heard of Johann Sebastian Joust, here is a little information (it's not your normal video game)

About the game
Johann Sebastian Joust is a no-graphics, digitally-enabled playground game for 2 to 7 players, designed for motion controllers such as the PlayStation Move. The goal is to be the last player remaining. When the music — selections from J.S. Bach's ‌‌Brandenburg Concertos — plays in slow-motion, the controllers are extremely sensitive to movement. When the music speeds up, this threshold becomes less strict, giving the players a small window to dash at their opponents. If your controller is ever moved beyond the allowable threshold, you're out! Try to jostle your opponents' controllers while protecting your own. See a video here:

The game is still in development and won't be out for a while, so this may be your only chance to try this game this year.

This is not an official Anime Boston event, but something I threw together for this amazing game with the help of one of the developers Douglas Wilson from Die Gute Fabrik games in Copenhagen, Denmark. To find out when and where exactly we are playing follow me on twitter here:
