The Johann Sebastian Joust


MARCUS YAM / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Liz Korb, left, jousts with Casey Kourran, as they each hold on firmly to their PlayStation Move motion controllers, during a game of Johann Sebastian Joust at Cal Anderson Park in Seattle on Saturday night. Johann Sebastian Joust is a digitally enabled playground game designed to be played with motion controllers such as the Move and is played to the music of J.S. Bach's Brandenburg Concertos. The music is played at different tempos and dictates the sensitivity of the controllers to motion. The game often evokes agility and dexterity as the players try not to make a sudden movement that can eliminate them from the game. The goal is the be the last player remaining.
