Plastic Studios confirm a new IP for Sony’s console that will make full use of the console’s motion control peripheral.
Motion controlled gaming is not something new in the industry, yet it took the success of the Nintendo Wii console before Sony and Microsoft took notice and decided to come up with their own takes on the technology.
Microsoft came out with the controller free, Kinect, where players use their bodies as the controller and Sony came out with the, slightly more practical, PlayStation Move.
However, it was the former that had recorded higher sales figures as it was embraced by the casual/party gamer segment of the market.
Sony exclusives titles such as Killzone 3 and MAG made use of the Move technology yet in many homes it remains an accessory that gathers dust more than anything.
Plastic Studios, the developers behind Linger in Shadows, are out to continue their experimental video game come interactive experience trend with Datura.
According to Michal Staniszewski, who works at the studio the game will use the Move as the only means of controlling a player’s actions in the game.
“Finding yourself in a mysterious forest, you will navigate your way through the game by controlling your character’s hand using PlayStation Move technology”. He explained.
Michal went on to explain how the Move would immerse the gamer in the overall experience.
“From here, you are immersed into the game’s unique experimental narrative and original way of interaction, which enables you to experience the world not only visually, but also empirically – and illusion that you can actually touch trees, faces and other
However, the developer was quick to point out that Datura would be less of a game and more of an interactive experience, as can be derived from the following quote, “Datura is a story where you get the chance to physically participate in.”
Players should think along the lines of Heavy Rain and other such titles to get an idea of what kind of game Datura may turn out to be. The game does seem like it is built on an interesting concept yet whether or not it will work out is something that remains
to be seen.
