Light gun games haven’t progressed with the times and have instead been overtaken in the gaming market by FPS games. FPS games have, in general, updated with technology and have remained relevant into the current generation.
Sinden Lightgun wants to change that. Until now, light gun controllers have only been compatible with CRT screens. The current iteration of the Sinden Lightgun is compatible with modern TV screens, needing only to utilise a shortcut in the Sinden Lightgun software to create a digital border around the playable area on the television that the light gun is able function within, by controlling the player’s mouse cursor.
Due to the the wide application connectivity of the Sinden Lightgun, it is able to work with applications running on both Windows and Linux, to play a large variety of light gun games, including:
- Duck Hunt
- Time Crisis 1,2 & 3
- Virtua Cop 1, 2 & 3
- House Of The Dead 1, 2, 3, 4 & Overkill
- Point Blank 1, 2 & 3
- Terminator 2 Arcade
- Star Wars Trilogy
- Jurassic Park: Lost World
- Mad Dog McCree
- Battle Clash
- Wild Gunman
The Sinden Lightgun calculates where you are pointing on the screen over 50 times a second and provides a complete end-to-end calculation in less than 25ms. As it remains completely accurate no matter how long you play or if you move positions, you can turn off your crosshairs and enjoy a completely authentic light gun experience.
The Sinden Lightgun is currently on Indiegogo:
