binarymushroom Posted December 11, 2019 Share Posted December 11, 2019 I've just been thinking about this for a bit now. seems like a giant multi directional treadmill is what some big companies are doing right now, but it seems very .... not good for living room use, in fact most people play games on a chair or a couch. really all somone needs to move around is a tumbstick. not even really that. just an 8 way d-pad with pressure sensitive buttons. why not just make those buttons really heavy duty and attach them to your foot? make the controller attach to the foot similar to a snowboard binding, the foot is raised off the ground maybe 1 or 2 inches and surrounded by a lift kinda like a platform shoe the pressure sensitive buttons are on the bottom edge of the lift and face twords the ground... 1. putting pressure twords the toe end moves forward 2. putting pressure on the heal moves back 3 putting pressure twords the outsides moves left 4 putting pressure twords the outside moves right 5 combo of these moves in diagonals 6 pushing down on your foot harder makes you run now you don't have to stand up or use some weird in game teleporting systems. it would be super easy to get used to something like this and would make these games more viable to move around in and really low cost to develop.
