PITTSBURGH, PA – Nov. 3, 2010 – Carlo Sunseri in conjunction with Triple B games, to develop the newest lacrosse video game, College Lacrosse 2011.
The game will feature all new motion capture animations, overhauled graphics, polished Xbox LIVE play, improved right joystick shooting, new right joystick dodging, new bullet and loft passing, new dive shots, new penalties, new sound effects, new stick checking system and much more. College Lacrosse 2011 will offer motion capture lacrosse and high scoring gameplay for just $5 on Xbox 360’s Indie Game Channel.
“As an Indie team, I’m extremely proud to say we are the first company to develop a lacrosse video game that features motion capture animations,” said Crosse Studio Founder and President Carlo Sunseri. “We went into the motion capture studio and recorded the most realistic lacrosse animations to date. You will not see any of the same animations from our original games. All of the animations in College Lacrosse 2011 have been redone and replaced with motion capture.”
Motion capture, or mocap, is a technique of digitally recording the movements. It was originally developed as an analysis tool in biomechanics research, but has grown increasingly important as a source of motion data for computer animation.
“Another main focus for College Lacrosse 2011 was improving the graphics,” said Carlo Sunseri. “To help in this area we brought in two new artists, Adam Curtis and Arman Abounourinejad.”
These two artists bring experience from Triple-A studios such as Ignition London, Headstrong Games, EA and Digital Extremes.
