A little bit of backstory

Cast spell and no normal one. All the spells are original and come with sounds. So be ready to be surprised and don’t forget to protect yourself. Pinky promise, you will not regret it (at all). May the power of the sheep be with you.

How does it work?

Developed with Meteor JS and Myo.js, the application brings together two of the current coolest technologies to elevate game to a new level. A framework was developed specially for this game in order to recognize several shapes drawn by your arm. It could be used to recognize letters, basic geometric shapes.
