Whenever I need a good humbling, or I just want to twist my brain into a pretzel, I give echochrome another go.
The wonderfully created and very unique concept was singularly impressive and although the sequel will be different, it should still be very original and very challenging. It wasn't part of Sony's E3 press conference but as Kotaku noted, this new PlayStation Move-compatible title should intrigue a great many creative-minded gamers. They compare it to the WiiWare game, Lost in Shadow , with the obvious focus on finding solutions to puzzles via "light and shadow gameplay." The Move controller will be used as a flashlight, and you will use it to expose hidden pathways and exits within the game. We should also be able to expect the same kind of user-generated levels in echochrome ii and that alone might be enough to entice those who wish to toy with the susceptible minds of their friends. There are a surprising number of possibilities for Move and provided Sony really takes advantage of that potential, it should prove to be a great peripheral.
Personally, I just want to be able to get to one of the last tiers in echochrome . The fact that I have extreme difficulty with the later levels obviously means I suck, but I don't care.
