New User-Created EchoChrome Levels Coming To PS3

310w ago - Kumi Yuasa, associate producer for the perspective-bending PlayStation Network title echochrome, has revealed that twenty all-new user-created challenges will be playable through the game's freeform mode sometime later this this month.

Yuasa didn't mention a concrete date, but did say that the levels would launch "between May 15 and May 21."

Players will need to set their difficulty level to at least 2 or 3 to experience the new levels. Additionally, the creators of each level will be rewarded in the form of recognition starting this week, as Yuasa will reveal their PSN ID on the PlayStation Blog.

As a couple commenters over at the PS Blog have pointed out, it would be far more convenient if the levels could be downloaded and played at will, instead of randomly through freeform mode.

PSP and PS3 EchoChrome demos available tomorrow!

50°
313w ago - To quote from the official PlayStation Blog: My name is Kumi Yuasa and I am the Associate Producer for the upcoming PSN game EchoChrome.

This is my first post on the blog, and I'm excited that my debut here on the blog is to announce that free PS3 and PSP EchoChrome demos will be available for download tomorrow on the PlayStation Store on the PS3. The PSP demo version will also be available for download on the PlayStation Store for PC.




Perhaps you have read about EchoChrome... There is a lot of excitement for it - N'Gai Croal of Level Up even wrote, "...as of last E3, the 2008 game we've been looking forward to the most is EchoChrome."

It's a fun and addictive puzzle game with really elegant and simple graphics. The concept is inspired by the famous MC Escher artwork, which explores infinity, architecture and impossible constructions. In EchoChrome, you control the camera and perspective on an infinite canvas, guiding a mannequin figure by carefully tilting and turning the level to create a continual pathway, allowing your character to walk safely through the design. Puzzled?!? Check out the video above and you'll see what I mean!

There is no single way to get through a level in EchoChrome. You and your friends...
