Edge Interview: David Braben

Edge: David Braben is no stranger to new frontiers, so it's no surprise to see him among those spearheading Microsoft's futuristic Kinect peripheral. In Kinectimals, Frontier Developments has produced a game capable of melting the heart of even the most hardened gamer and, taking Nintendogs as a precedent, could well be the title to instill Kinect in the minds of the massmarket.

Of course, this isn't the first time the studio has worked with animals, but was the world ready for Frontier Developments' 2003 PS2 game Dog's Life? As part of our Kinect cover feature in issue 218 (available from UK newsagents today), we sat down with the man who gave the world Elite to talk about Kinectimals' wide-ranging appeal, the importance of recognising what a controller can add rather than remove and why the device is perfect for core gamers.
