Finally, in related news below is a video from Berserker Devel on using a rooted Android device as a PS3 bluetooth keyboard, who states:
This application will allow to use your device as a remote mouse and keyboard for your PC/PS3.
Since low level apis are used, there is no way by now to ensure 100% compatibility with all devices (because of different bluetooth implementations of some vendors): if the log says “invalid or inactive bluetooth device” your only option is to try a different ROM like Cyanogenmod (if available).

I have seen a lot of games doing stuff like this I can't wait some of this is going to be amazing co-op with out them actually playing can be interesting.
well heavy rain was great so i'll try con my mate into game sharing this with me. lol
I played it last night. Its got the exact same controls as Heavy Rain which I hated. The story is ok but it keeps jumping from one timeframe to another. 1 second your a kid then an adult then a teenager then a kid then adult and you never remember what powers you have or what you can do at which timeframe.
It looks just like Heavy Rain too. gameplay and camera is buggy as hell. have fun trying to walk straight as i was running in a circle for a few mins as it just wouldn't go in the door instead just spinning around.
Another game ruined by poor gameplay. It has potential to be good if they used a better control system. if it was using the same system as Tomb Raider it would be awesome and I'd say get it but I cant as the Heavy Rain controls suck bigtime.
Is the app (and the game) available in America (the continent)? I can't install the app from Argentina
What kind of a game is this?
i played it yesterday its like heavy rain... but a little bit more fantasy/mystic... i think its almost like the movie carrie from stephen king..
i dont feel like playing a game... more like watching a movie... its ok for one time because the story is ok... but i still think its a little bit boring because the game is very slow...
Great! Thank you daivyphuong! I can't wait to try this with the game. Cheers!
