With new technology like NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 closing the gap between PC games and those played on tablets, hardware and design company Ideum has a new way to bring the full PC gaming experience mobile. Devoted PC gamers love their keyboard and mouse controls for playing RTS and MOBA games. To date, touch screens haven’t won over all gamers on tablets. But GestureWorks Gameplay is bridging that gap.
Ideum has created a new virtual touch interface that allows users to replicate the mouse and keyboard gameplay experience. Gamers can customize controls via a drag-and-drop system with virtual joysticks, buttons, digital pads, switches and swipe gestures. The company has already set up Virtual Controllers for games like Castle Crashers, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Trine, Diablo III, Borderlands 2, Tomb Raider, World of Tanks, Mortal Kombat, LEGO Star Wars and others.
Users can save custom Virtual Controllers for different games and have them ready to go on the fly. GestureWorks Gameplay launches on November 5th for Windows 8 tablets and other devices for $14.99.
