87w ago - SCEE Blog Manager Fred Dutton has announced today that Nightcrawler is bringing stylish Diggs Detective Noir to Wonderbook.

Below are the details, as follows: While Book of Spells led off our Wonderbook announcement at E3 earlier this year, there are plenty more projects in the works for the forthcoming PlayStation 3 augmented reality platform, including Walking With Dinosaurs from the BBC, and an exciting partnership with Disney Interactive Studios.

Diggs: Nightcrawler is a little different, however - unlike Book of Spells and Dinosaurs, it's a brand new IP, promising quirky detective noir with style to spare.

Less than 24 hours after the game's new trailer debuted during the Sony press conference at gamescom last week, we sat down with Adam Volker from Oscar-winning animation studio turned game developer Moonbot to find out what it has in store.

"So, Diggs is a detective bookworm and he's really good at what he does," he explained.

"He works for the godfather of Library City, Humpty Dumpty. And you know his story - someone pushed him off the wall, someone bumped him off - and the cops think it's Diggs. So when you start the game he's framed for the murder of his old buddy. The story unfolds from there, with you attempting to clear Diggs' name...

To date, I've made more than 30, most of which are available in North America. My life is dedicated to games, so it goes without saying that I've always dreamt of having one of my board games turned into a video game.

When I designed the Dungeon Twister board game in 2003, I knew it was the perfect candidate for a videogame adaptation.

Its modularity, its infinite gameplay, its never-ending renewal, the tremendous variety in strategies that can be deployed, and most of all its addictive nature.

So when I met the guys from Hydravision at a board game convention, it was a revelation – and the beginning of Dungeon Twister as a video game. Dungeon Twist makes the jump to PSN this Tuesday, July 3rd.

So what is Dungeon Twister? It is a turn-based strategy game that some describe as a mix between chess and Dungeons & Dragons. The story is simple: A powerful character called the Arch-Mage has discovered immortality.

But he's...
