8w ago - Frogwares' Olga Ryzhko shared new information today on Magrunner: Dark Pulse on PS3, which is a Lovecraftian Cyberpunk Puzzler he proclaims.
To quote: Magrunner: Dark Pulse is a first-person action puzzle game set in a cyberpunk reimagining of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.
The year is now 2048. A handful of young and brilliant citizens have been chosen by Gruckezber Corporation to join the Magtech training program for space exploration. Equipped with a special glove using Gruckezber's technology, the candidates must solve their way through a huge maze of challenge rooms by magnetically charging objects that attract or repel each other.

126w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has posted up an El Shaddai PS3 video interview today alongside details on the PlayStation 3 title, as follows:
With vibrant colors, buttery-smooth animation, and an uncluttered presentation (no HUD!), El Shaddai is a real head-turner.
The game's premise is as unusual as its visuals are striking. "This is a retelling of the Book of Enoch, part of the Dead Sea Scrolls," Ignition Entertainment's Shane Bettenhausen told me. "It's not meant to be a complete retelling - we've taken some liberties."
Liberties such as mobile phones, designer jeans, and a driving level which would be at home in a TRON or Final Fantasy title. Despite the biblical angle, I wouldn't consider El Shaddai a religious experience any more than I would Bayonetta a treatise on witchcraft. Instead, the source material offers up an interesting story and guides some of the gameplay elements.
"Enoch, as a character in the bible, is immortal," Bettenhausen told me. "He cannot die. So when you die in this game, you always have the chance to come back to life. If you jam on the four buttons that you use to play the game fast enough, you come back to life....
