Fable: The Journey is a first-person game that has players use Kinect to manipulate magic in order to defeat enemies. By using their hands to perform certain gestures, players can enter a spell crafting mode, which allows to draw items with their hands and then use them as spells.

As enemies are defeated, life force is collected, which can be used to unlock new spells.
