DigiPen students Grant Wynn, Corey Kay, and Steven Peng have released NiteLite, a freeware Windows tower defense title that uses Microsoft's motion-sensing Kinect peripheral for input.

In NiteLite, players wave their hands to light up the surrounding terrain and defeat incoming enemies using a variety of weapons. Though the game is playable with a keyboard and mouse setup, its developers recommend Kinect (both the Xbox and Windows versions of the peripheral are supported) for maximum enjoyment.
