Hi Everyone - It's a good day to be a PlayStation gamer.
Not only do we get to celebrate the release of Starhawk as well as the news that all future Starhawk map packs will be free (watch this space for when they'll be dropping), we also see a ton of great content arriving on the PlayStation Store!
We start off today's update with the PSN exclusive Datura. Playable with PlayStation Move or your DualShock 3 controller, this adventure will get you immersed into the game's unique experimental narrative and original way of interaction. Experience the world not only visually but also exploration.
In DATURA, the player will experience an incredibly unique scenario. As you play DATURA, you find yourself in a forest. As you explore this environment, you will be presented with different scenarios in which you have to make a choice, which will determine your end result.
It's an unforgettable journey brought to you by at Plastic ("Linger in Shadows") and Santa Monica Studio. PlayStation Plus subscribers will also be able to pick this title up at a 20% discount ($7.99 PS Plus price).
We are constantly searching for titles that bring interesting and unique experiences to the gaming community, and having the opportunity to present Datura to you is yet another huge honor.
Datura is the second offering from Plastic, a group of amazingly talented developers in Poland. This project started awhile back, after they released Linger in Shadows for the PS3, which was an interesting step for us as a studio.
We honestly weren't sure how the public would react to an interactive art house project, but our fears were soon laid to rest as our hunch that our gamer were a savvy bunch was proved correct.
