Developer Garry Newman reveals physics-based game will add motion-control support on PC either this week or next.
Gamers will soon be able to control characters in Garry's Mod with nothing more than their limbs. Creator Garry Newman has announced a new patch for the sandbox game that adds support for Microsoft's Kinect motion-control technology.
Kinect support for Garry's Mod will work with all Xbox 360 Kinect units on any Windows PC machine with Kinect for Windows Runtime v1.6, but not Mac.
The update is scheduled to be released either this week or next, according to a tweet from Newman, and is not planned for release outside of the PC.
For more on Kinect support for Garry's Mod, check out Newman's detailed blog entry and video of Kinect compatibility in action below.
And why would we need a crappy, dysfunctional (Except for Dance Central) motion sensing gimmick in a game already brimming with brilliant creativity put out by the community? To fill Microsoft's pockets of course. G-Mod simply doesn't need this to make it better...
@robertcain Chill, if you don't want to use it, then don't use it. It's only an option for the people who have it and want to use it :D
How To Make a Gmod Video
1. Outline a simple plot
2. Do as many drugs as you can
3. Make Gmod video
4. When you wake up from your drug trip, go with what you have done, and put classic video game music to it

You really hate the PS3 I've noticed from all of your comments.
@SangheliZealotX Remember the x-box hd dvd player that was funny, remember constant ring of death, remember no hdmi or wi fi support for years that was funny. Ahhh x-box what a piece of poop.
Remember when the PS3 had backwards compatibility? How about when you could install another OS on it? Or how about when the PS3 used to have more USB and media ports? And there was that time when their network was down for a month and everyone's personal data on PSN was potentially at risk, remember that? I could go on, but I think I have made my point.
@khaos107 Remember how the ps3 had no exclusives for the first 3 years and how it cost 600$ and how it had no cross game chat?(oh wait it still doesn't have that) What a piece of poop.
@SangheliZealotX Resistance: Fall of Man! Come on now, if your going to troll, get your facts straight!
@SangheliZealotX But it doesn't cost 300 dollars now. It has a lot of good games now. So, you actually try a PS3 game. Not Playstation all-star Battle Royale. Try MGS4 or Demon's Souls or Uncharted 2.
@Rivboets7 @khaos107 since the ps2 outsold the original Xbox 7:1 I wouldn't consider getting beaten by that consoles successor as doing well.
Not sure about anyone else, but I was terrified by this video. The music and the setting along with how the models moved, it seemed really surreal.
I can only imagine the flood of youtube poop vids with garry's mod.
Now that is friggin cool! I don't care what any of you say, but it's neat to see that Valve is using other company's devices to do something better with it than the original creators intended. I think I would get a Kinect just to do some cool motion capturing. Microsoft should thank them because this actually might boost sales since that means the Kinect device is now tapping into the PC fanbase.
i can not begin to describe how ausome it is to be able to move and interact a "physical" body within a world.
