Thatgamecompany the indie game developer for the hit games, Flower and Journey have today announced that Flower will no longer be a PlayStation 3 exclusive, launching on the PlayStation Vita.
There’s not much information on how the game will work with portable console’s touch screen and motion sensing technology.
However Thatgamecompany has announced that the Vita version of the game will be viewable from the IndieCade exhibit at E3 in June, when we should here more information on the title, possibly even a trailer.
In case you didn’t already know about the game, here’s the description of Flower from the press release:
Flower expands the team’s tradition of delivering simple gameplay, accessible controls and a medium to explore emotional chords uncommon in video games. In Flower, the surrounding environment, most often pushed to the background in games, is pulled to the forefront and becomes the primary “character.” The player fades from an external and stressful world in the opening of this fresh and genuine game for PlayStation®Vita, and journeys through beautifully vivid landscapes, changing the his surroundings and exploring nature along the way.
Playing as the wind, the player guides and grows a swarm of petals by interacting with other flowers and the surrounding environment. The goals and journey in each level vary, but all involve flight, exploration and interaction with the level. Using simple touch or motion controls, the player guides the lead petal and accumulates a swarm of flower petals as he moves at his own pace within the environment, causing the on-screen world to change. Flower’s gameplay offers different experiences, pacing and rhythm to all players. Along the way, the environment will pose challenges to the player’s progress.
