has shared a video announcement revealing that Pillar of the Skies - A New World of Topatoi is hitting PS3 via PSN tomorrow.
To quote: Firstly, I'm happy to announce that the second episode of our PS3 exclusive, puzzle-oriented platformer Topatoi will be releasing on the PlayStation Store tomorrow. Take a whirligig under control and fasten your seat belts.
As we already informed you, Topatoi: Pillar of the Skies introduces an absolutely new mechanical world and a plenty of new features. Check out the gameplay video to get a glimpse of what's coming out your way:

So I'll pass on the storyline we described earlier and move to the most important thing - the core gameplay – I believe it would be most interesting for all you guys. So Topatoi is a platformer, but as you might have noticed, it differs from a classic platformer for a few reasons.
First of all, it introduces the freedom of a 3D world like most of the latest adventure games. But the main difference here is that you have no character to control, but a whirligig vehicle that you drive. You'll learn the controls for convenient driving, and in Topatoi, controls are quite simple - you can spin your whirligig up or down:
• High Spin Rate = High Speed & Long Jumps BUT Difficult Controls
• Low Spin Rate = Low Speed & Short Jumps BUT Sensitive Controls
As you can see, it makes classic controls tricky and adds an element of racing, but it's fun.
So spin, feel spin and control spin are really valuable here! Want to jump as long as you can? Spin up your vehicle! Want to stop? Drop your spin rate to zero! Follow those rules and you'll pass all 34 levels of Topatoi and earn the 19 trophies it has to offer.
Stay tuned, share your thoughts, ask your questions here or through Topatoi's group on Facebook
and have fun.
