174w ago - SCEA Producer Kumi Yuasa has announced today that Echochrome ii hits PSN Tuesday, and detailed PS3 Trophies and a new video video update below.

To quote: In my last echochrome ii post, we announced the release date of echochrome ii, but now I want to share more about the game.

Many of you have asked about the price in the last post. echochrome ii will be available at PlayStation Store for $14.99, so make sure you have funds in your wallet on December 21st!

Also, some of you were wondering about the Trophies. I am happy to announce that echochrome ii supports Trophies and there are 12 Trophies in total. Just like the original echochrome, our quiet hero character patiently keeps walking on the path you create.

So why don't we award him as "Avid Walker". He definitely deserves to get a Trophy for taking so many steps for us!





During the adventure, he may sometimes fall, end up twisting his ankle or hit his head on the ceilings... He cannot avoid these accidents at times to achieve his goal, but who knows...these may lead into obtaining some Trophies? Happy Trophy hunting!

echochrome ii is a very unique, original puzzle game utilizing...

176w ago - Today SCEA Producer Kumi Yuasa has announced that Echochrome ii will be hitting PSN on December 21, 2010 and shared a fresh video below.

To quote: Wow, it's been some time since our last game update so I am very excited to announce that echochrome ii will be available for your holiday gaming pleasure on December 21st!

And if you're already enjoying PlayStation Move and our vast library of Move titles, then echochrome ii will be a great addition to your collection.

If you didn't see my last post and are curious as to what echochrome ii is all about, it's a unique puzzle game using the PlayStation Move motion controller to shine a light on a series of blocks and objects to create realistic shadows on the wall.





The blocks and objects you see in each level will cast different shadows depending on your movement so as you alter the perspective and angles by adjusting this light source, you will manipulate the shadows they cast to ultimately reveal a solution to the puzzle and guide your character to the exit. You can check out some actual gameplay in the video above.

Once you check out the game for yourself I think you'll enjoy how it uses PlayStation Move in this rather unique and original way. The best way...

199w ago - SCEA Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared a video first look at the upcoming title Echochrome ii for both PS3 and PlayStation Move today!

To quote: As most of you have already heard, we will be coming out with echochrome ii later this year. It was announced at E3 and we've received a lot of positive feedback.

For those of you who don't know what echochrome ii is, here is an interview and demo with our team to show you exactly what everyone has been talking about.

Remember all the fun you used to have playing with shadows as a kid? Now you can bring back those exciting feelings of shadow art by utilizing the PlayStation Move motion controller and the PlayStation Eye camera!




With its unique way of using Move controller as a flashlight, you will control light and shadows, rotate levels and change the way objects are viewed and the shadows they cast. The ultimate goal is to lead your character, that can only walk on the shadow, through the path from beginning to end.

Beware, as there are hidden goals, jumping pads, holes, transporting elevators, and so on. Rotate the level itself to create a specific shadow - the possibilities are infinite and there is always more than meets the eye as every person...
