TotemBall Dances on to Xbox Live Arcade

Prepare to get physical with “TotemBall”, the gesture-based game, which arrives today on Xbox Live Arcade. TotemBall uses the Xbox Live Vision Camera (which goes on sale in Europe this Friday 6th October) to control the characters in the game. Help Pterry the Pturtel uncover all the musical totems while grooving to your own “totem” beat. The game is offered for FREE on Xbox Live Arcade, starting today, 4th October from 0800 UK time / 0900 CET

When the ancient Ptolmec tribe simultaneously discovered gunpowder and barbeque, the explosive results scattered their musical totems across the jungle! Now Pterry the Pturtle must roll over mountains, cross islands, scale pyramids, and battle giant pinball games to retrieve the lost totems and bring music back to the party.

With high-definition graphics, Xbox Live Vision camera compatibility, Xbox Live Achievements and Leaderboards, this next-generation title provides hours of fun.

“TotemBall.” Includes multiple game modes including:

TotemBall – Camera-controlled platforming gameplay – gamers control the characters in the game by moving their hands in the air and gesturing in front of the camera
