Video: Hands-On: PSN Game Datura with PlayStation Move

250°
133w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman is here with a new video demonstrating PlayStation Move with the new PSN game Datura below.

To quote: I've never seen a game quite like Datura. I encountered this upcoming PSN adventure title last week during a GDC demonstration that showed off the game's intricate use of the PlayStation Move motion controller.

In Datura, your gestures with PS Move guide a disembodied hand onscreen, a bit like a mouse cursor but in a full 3D space. The motion tracking is 1:1, so I was able to reach into the game to interact with the environment, whether it was to caress a tree trunk or pull a hand-drawn map in for closer inspection.

In the video below, Producer Matt Morton gives a full tour of Datura's interface and universe - it's absolutely worth watching.

Intrigued by the game's cryptic presentation and strong emphasis on player choice, I spoke with Director Michal Staniszewski to learn more about his inspirations.

If Datura intrigues you, be sure to tune into this Thursday's PlayStation Blogcast for another segment discussing this enigmatic PSN title. And if you have questions, be sure to leave them in the comments.

Video: Closure: PSN's Next Innovator Arrives on March 27, 2012

133w ago - Eyebrow Interactive Lead Designer & Programmer Tyler Glaiel has announced today alongside a video trailer that Closure, PSN's next innovator, will be officially arriving on March 27, 2012!

To quote: I know we're all heavily enjoying Journey right now (it's amazing), but don't shut off your PS3 when you're done with it because another awesome game, Closure, is coming out at the end of the month.

We just finished our launch trailer, which you can watch below right now!

Just for recap, Closure is a puzzle platformer based around manipulating lights to phase objects in and out of reality. The core gameplay premise is: If you can't see it, it doesn't exist.

It's a simple enough concept to understand, but the puzzles are anything but. A team of three (myself, artist Jon Schubbe, musician Christopher Rhyne) have spent three years working on Closure, designing nearly 100 unique and challenging puzzles spread across a variety of dark and eerie settings including a decrepit factory, a murky forest, an abandoned carnival, and a few other locales that I'll leave as a surprise.





Closure is not just about its setting and atmosphere, though. There is a heavy focus on the puzzles themselves,...
