Ever wanted the power to smite an entire civilization? Ubisoft grants us all this power in their latest Xbox Live Arcade / PSN title Babel Rising. The goal in tower of Babel is to prevent the people of Babylon from building the ancient Tower of Babel, and in order to accomplish this players must use their divine powers, with either the PlayStation Move or Microsoft Kinect.
The whole thing sounds like it could be very entertaining. Who hasn’t stood in front of their Kinect and asked themselves “Why can’t I hurl lightening bolts with this thing?”
Here’s the official description as posted on Major Nelson’s Blog:
Price: 800 Microsoft Points
