The PlayStation Move hasn’t seen a great deal of ‘core’ gamer targeted titles since its launch, with Sony instead preferring to use the device and technology for family friendly games. There’s been a few, but it’s mostly casual stuff.
Playhouse Entertainment (via iWaggle) are looking to shift the balance the other way though, with their Move-exclusive game that – whilst currently clearly only a tech demo – shows a fair bit of promise, albeit at a very early stage.
The demo’s old, at least a few months, but there’s a Half Life vibe about what’s on show, and it’s clear that the technology used to navigate, interact and shoot is in place. It’s tricky to see how intuitive it is from the video, but it could be interesting.
“Many years have passed and there have been very few games to come close to the amount of control that I originally imagined when I first saw what motion controls were capable of,” said Playhouse’s Brett Gale.
“I believe my unique control scheme fixes all previous control problems and introduces realistic motion controlled gameplay that is on par with expensive virtual reality systems,” he added, although doesn’t offer any explanation as to what that control method actually is.
More is expected from Gale and the game next year.
