ChiefMonkeyGrinder writes “Though Microsoft’s Project Natal won’t be released until later this year, indie studio Arkedo has already revealed a canceled project for the peripheral. Called 2 Finger Heroes, it was to be a beat ‘em up where your fingers do the fighting. ‘Characters would be controlled by moving your fingers, while special moves could be done by incorporating your whole hand.
