How good is your understanding of Java ?

 If you are new(er) to programming, attempting to create a motion capture game will be very difficult.

 

 There are no Java based game engines that support motion capture, that I know of, however here is some code that uses the JMF library for motion capture.

 If you are new(ish) to programming Java, I would recommend reading this free Ebook - it is very helpful. [LINK]

Well, I have the SCJP and it does not prepare you to build a game... 

 

If you want to do a game with motion capture you must research about game programming a lot, and about motion capture and animations a lot... its not about java.... What I mean: 

 

If you want to make a game you will not be focused in JAVA but in game programming... java will be just a tool...

 

Well.. I like the JavaMonkey Engine ( jmonkeyengine.org ) but you may have to build a way to use motion capture ( maybe using the JFM Library or build your own lib ). 

 

If I can suggest another path: Try to build simple games, I mean.. 2d games with java if you just want to practice your java knowledge... take a look in a old book called Killer Game Programming in Java its a interesting book about java + game programming... you will learn some java facets and some game programming theory...

 

Good lucky with your SCJP exam!!
