Child of Eden - the spiritual successor to Rez - is a "multi-sensory" shooter involving a battle to destroy a virus within 'Eden,' the archive of all human memories. And one of those memories can be your very own.

"The theme of Child of Eden is ‘Hope and Happiness’ and I want players to experience happy feelings every time they play the game,” said Tetsuya Mizuguchi, Q? Entertainment studio founder and Creative Director of Child of Eden. “I need your help to convey these positive emotions, so please send us pictures that give you good vibes so we can include them in the ending of the game."
Get happy! The deadline for submissions to "The Journey Project" is November 20, and the only guidelines are "smiling faces, beautiful nature, landscapes, and any other positive images of Earth."
Back at E3 2010, OXM Editor in Chief Francesca Reyes called the game "even more crazy and incredible" than Rez. If you've played Rez, you know that's a good thing.
Child of Eden, which is set to release sometime next year, is one of the few announced Kinect games (Move support isn't yet confirmed) we're really hyped about. Why not help Mizuguchi with his adorable quest for "happy feelings?"
