New Crane Game Lets You Win Prizes Through Your Web Browser
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Japanese game developer Cyberstep formally launched its new web browser-based crane game toreba on Thursday. Players can win actual prizes by remotely operating a physical crane game via the Internet.
Multiple cameras allow players to check the placement of the game's claw and the position of prizes from various angles. A player can register on the site, and a single game costs 100 yen (about US$1.20), just like a typical game in a real amusement arcade.
Prizes currently include Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha the Movie 1st figures of Nanoha and Fate Testorossa, figures of the Strike Witches cast, bunny-girl versions of the female characters from Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts 2, Mikoto and Kuroko from Toaru Kagaku no Railgun, character figures from Aria the Scarlet Ammo, and Yui and Kanade from Angel Beats!
