Did you know that Ice2D Game Engine was also used in a Big Sales Campaign in Italy fall 2011.
It was used in an arcade machine that followed around on the EstaFruit tour visiting more than 10 locations.
At each stop on the tour the arcade game was played by many people before and after the family exercise event.

All in all many thousans Italiens enjoyed the weekends and shooting soda bubbles at 3D fuits and fish with a special EstaFruit gun ;D
The arcade machine had a build in kinetics camera (from xbox 360) that was interfaced with Ice2D to target the special Gun and to show the live image of the players as a background in the game. Ice2D itself saved the images from the game - there are many hundres posted on FB - very cool 8)

Take a look at all the photos on .. notice how people looks concentrated at first then smiling :D

Using Kinetics and other webcams or videos with Ice2D will be much easier now after the IceVideo interface has been added. This interface gives great performance and allows the video or webcam to be rendered on a real directX9 texture for use in combination with all of the Ice2D game engine features - e.g. sprites, Tweens etc
