Microsoft working on FYCPT, a Windows Phone game controlled by the Microsoft Band

Microsoft is developing a Windows Phone 8.1 game called FYCPT, which requires the use of the Microsoft Band fitness wearable to control its character, a paint drop.

As first reported by, the FYCPT game shows up in the Windows Store under an Internal Beta Account, which means that it is only meant to be downloaded by Microsoft team members. However, the site managed to access the game for a quick video.

FYCPT players rotate their wrists while wearing the Microsoft Band to control the paint drop so it can avoid being hit by water drops. In another part of the game, moving the hand up and down while it is closed in a fist causes the drop to move up and down so it can push up a rock on the other side of a see saw so it can hit flying objects. Finally, moving the arm with an open face hand controls the drop through a Flappy Bird-style flying game.

There's no word on when, or even if, FYCPT will be released to the general public.
