80w ago - Retro Affect Software Neurosurgeon David Carrigg has officially announced today that Snapshot is coming to PS Vita and PS3 this Fall alongside a video introducing the video game posted below.
To quote: I'm proud to announce that Snapshot, our 2D puzzle platformer, is coming to PS Vita and PS3 (with cross-platform saves) this fall.
In Snapshot, you control a robot named Pic. Pic carries a high-tech camera that can "capture" and remove objects and parts of the environment. You can then paste the picture back into the world causing all the objects to come tumbling back out. If you're looking for a new puzzle game with a twist, keep reading!
The game begins with Pic powering on for the first time in a dusty abandoned laboratory. Uncertain about his purpose and why he was built, he wanders into the forest that surrounds the laboratory.
This is where you'll first start to use your camera to take photographs of objects. The first chapter of the game will hit you with a series of puzzles involving moving objects around within the levels, and it's easier than you think.
If you want to reposition a box, simply snap a photo to capture it, then paste the picture back into the world and watch the box fall back out of it.
