The limitations of current technology in the field of user interaction cause a bottleneck in the development of interactive digital storytelling systems. The use of body language has recently arisen as a simple but expressive approach to human-computer interaction, motion capture devices being used in interactive simulations and videogames. This paper discusses the use of these devices for recognition of body movements as key elements for designing interactive stories in virtual environments, presenting our findings in the early stages of development of a serious game that uses Microsoft Kinect for allowing players to interact in a more sensitive and amusing way.
