Double Fine productions have launched their new music-driven score challenge game, where the ultimate aim is to get a high score. The game is played using the new Leap Motion controller and is currently available for download to PC and MAC owners via the Leap Motion Airspace Store.
Mobile gamers have to wait until July 31, the auspicious date of launch of Dropchord on iOS, Android as well as the popular crowd-funded (but not well received) OUYA game console. Dropchord will cost $2.99 irrespective of the platform on which you buy the game.
Full PR after the break.
