We are very excited to finally announce our first PS Vita title: Chronovolt.
We have been working on the game for quite some time, as we started prototyping it on early PS Vita dev kits. The current game has evolved as we got to grips with the platform and the size of the team is a reflection of how ambitious the project has become.
Chronovolt is a 3D puzzle-platformer “marble game” in which the player has to guide his Chronosphere through the twists, turns, traps and hazards of Escher-like arenas. The player must perfect his control of speed and dexterity to guide the Chronosphere to the exit on each of the 30 levels.
Chronovolts scattered around the levels give the user the power to control time in various fashions: stopping it for selected objects, rewinding it and creating time warps. The time controls increase the fun and complexity of the puzzles. Time is controlled through use of the PS Vita’s front and back touch panels while the Chronosphere can be controlled either with tilting or with the more classic dual stick controls.
The game will be self published by Playerthree and will be released in Q2 2012. Stay tuned for more news coming soon!
