The lights are on
Remember the PlayStation Move? Fish it out of the closet because Plastic Studios, the creators of Linger in Shadows, have created a Move title for PSN called Datura.
Not much is known about the title, but Michal Staniszewski, game director at the developer, says it's about presenting hard choices to players. "While taking inspiration from film-like narratives," he tells the official PlayStation Blog, "Datura is a story you get a chance to physically participate in. As you travel through the game, you will encounter choices and face your consequences. It is through these puzzles that Datura explores an element of anxiety: was it a right choice or a wrong choice?"
Before we get to the gut-wrenching decisions, however, the game starts out in a forest. Of the environments and gameplay itself, Staniszewski says that game has an "experimental narrative and original way of interaction, which enables you to experience the world not only visually, but also empirically — an illusion that you can actually touch trees, faces, and other objects." Sounds interesting.
We'll be curious to see what the title is all about when we can get our hands on it.

hope its action packed.
Hmm I do like the sound of this game. I would like to see how these choices actually impact the game and the consequences given. Many games try to add choice/consequence to their gameplay and narrative, but few succeed with any real depth. It would be nice if this game could deliver a true experience in that sense, and if it does I'm all for it!
This game is going to be amazing. There's a video for it on IGN. Check it out everyone.
i think i remember seeing a tech demo of this. sounds like it can be loads of fun.
Sounds really interesting. Still need to pick up the move stuff... I'm going to shortly tho.
if this was "call of duty 59: more of same" this article would have a hundred comments by now.
I still haven't jumped in with the Move yet. Looking for the right game(s) to get me interested. Could this be it?
Am I the only one who paid 2.99 for Linger in Shadows just for the trophies? :(
Sounds pretty cool.
I'm seeing a lot of comments about no good games for the Move, but I've gotta say that Sports Champions has been the one good game that made it worth it for me, and it's actually a collection of fun games. At any time I can shoot arrows, fight with a sword and shield, play ping pong, play disc golf, play volleyball, and even the bocce ball game is fun. For someone like me who can't afford all that stuff in real life, the game is a great deal and helps keep me in shape while having fun. So that's my two cents.
Could be good.
I wish the kinect mic functions could be used with the playstation eye...
