The Xbox One game Chariot can link to Philips Hue connected lights

The Xbox One 2D platformer game Chariot has been updated so it can link to the popular Philips Hue series of connected lights. The lights change color and tone in time with what's happening in the game.

Philips stated:

"With over one million downloads worldwide, Chariot is a popular couch co-op platformer with rich, vibrant colours and out-of-this-world graphics and environments. It is now able to control all the Philips Hue lights in the room to reflect in real time what is happening in the game. Different lights are connected together to create a unique ambiance with hundreds of colours for the ultimate immersion in the game universe. When enemies attack, Hue lights blink red. When colourful plants bloom, their colours are reflected in the room. From subtle shifts to sudden bursts, everything onscreen is reflected in a Hue-enabled space. "

This is the first such video game that has been updated to connect to the Philips Hue lights.
