"Joust [is] something truly special, a new way to think about how we use this traditional videogame technology in radically new ways."
– Brandon Boyer, Venus Patrol
Johann Sebastian Joust is a no-graphics, digitally-enabled playground game designed for motion controllers.
The goal is to be the last player remaining. When the music — J.S. Bach's Brandenburg Concertos — plays in slow-motion, the controllers are extremely sensitive to movement. When the music speeds up, the 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.
