KONAMI ANNOUNCES PUDDLE NOW AVAILABLE FOR PLAYSTATION NETWORK
Physics-Based Puzzle Game and Winner at GDC 2010's Independent Games Festival Comes to Playstation ®Network
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that Puddle, a winner in the 2010 GDC Independent Games Festival Student Showcase Division, is now available for the PlayStation®Network for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. A brilliantly designed physics-based puzzle platform game, Puddle initially began as a project from six students from the French videogame school ENJMIN, and was ultimately picked up and developed by Neko Entertainment.
In Puddle, players must guide a puddle of fluid to its target destination, not by moving the fluid, but by tilting the game world using their PlayStation® Move or DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller. A new experience based on physics and liquid properties, players must work with friction, momentum, and the unique properties of each type of fluid and environment to send as much of each puddle past fires, rifts, spills and more. The challenge lies in the fact that the fluid motion is realistic. If players tilt too quickly, droplets are left behind and if tilted too slowly, they may not be able to make certain jumps. Players also have to control their fluid and safely navigate through pipes, plants, laboratories, a human body, a sewer, a rocket, a foundry and a power station. The end goal- avoid being evaporated away. With endless twists, turns and surprises, Puddle tests puzzle fans like never before in an unparalleled physics-based puzzle platformer title.
Puddle is rated T for Teen by the ESRB and is now available for download on the PlayStation®Network for $9.99. Puddle is also available for Xbox Live® Arcade for 800 MSP.
