148w ago - Magic Pixel Games President Mark Tsai has posted up a video today spotlighting Carnival Island on PS3 with PlayStation Move from E3 2011.

To quote: At E3, we were pleased to announce the game we've been building for PlayStation Move over the last several months with SCEA Santa Monica Studio: Carnival Island!

Carnival games are perfect for translation to motion control gaming - the gameplay is very physical, requiring rolling, throwing, flipping and tossing - actions which translate extremely well for the accuracy of the Move controller.

However, we've taken away the frustration, making the game feel very natural and accessible - something that anyone can pick-up and play. Carnival Island has something for everyone, and is a game that you can enjoy in your living room with up to four friends or family members. It allows side-by-side multiplayer, so you can elbow your family or friends during heated competitive play.





In single-player mode, the game takes the player through a journey of restoring magic to a forgotten carnival. As the player accomplishes challenges and goals, the world comes alive with pets, color and toys. All of the prizes you collect and unlock make a real difference; they add to the atmosphere...
