7w ago - Frogwares Olga Ryzhko shared a video today announcing that Magrunner: Dark Pulse is out today on PlayStation 3 with details below.
To quote: Magrunner: Dark Pulse is out today on PS3! At Frogwares, we consider ourselves to be quite experienced in puzzles and riddles; mainly due to 13 years of experience making Sherlock Holmes games. Some of you may have even played our latest one, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes on PS3.
However, we wanted to work on something that would expand on the games and puzzles we normally offer. We wanted to go further and explore some really dynamic puzzles, which is not really possible with the Sherlock Holmes games. Sherlock is quite the gentleman - he doesn't even run! And this is where Magrunner, a first-person puzzler, comes in.
Magrunner is based on reasoning, logic, and thinking. You'll be shooting things - you won't be gunning down nameless hordes of enemies, soldiers or zombies, but this is where the action part of the game pops in. This is our attempt to find the delicate balance between fun and challenge, between thinking and reacting.

8w ago - Frogwares' Olga Ryzhko shared new information today on Magrunner: Dark Pulse on PS3, which is a Lovecraftian Cyberpunk Puzzler he proclaims.
To quote: Magrunner: Dark Pulse is a first-person action puzzle game set in a cyberpunk reimagining of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.
The year is now 2048. A handful of young and brilliant citizens have been chosen by Gruckezber Corporation to join the Magtech training program for space exploration. Equipped with a special glove using Gruckezber's technology, the candidates must solve their way through a huge maze of challenge rooms by magnetically charging objects that attract or repel each other.
But when an earthquake disrupts the training program, what seemed to be the chance of a lifetime for the candidates becomes a descent into folly and cosmic horror.
Magrunner's game mechanics focus on magnetic polarity and manipulating it to solve environmental puzzles. There's immense potential for experimentation, especially given the world's variety of triggers, effects, machines, and objects.
You play as Dax Ward, who has been selected to participate in the Magtech training program. Using your Magtech glove, you can power other Magtech objects with...
