is here with a new video demonstrating PlayStation Move with the new PSN game Datura below.
To quote: I've never seen a game quite like Datura. I encountered this upcoming PSN adventure title last week during a GDC demonstration that showed off the game's intricate use of the PlayStation Move motion controller.
In Datura, your gestures with PS Move guide a disembodied hand onscreen, a bit like a mouse cursor but in a full 3D space. The motion tracking is 1:1, so I was able to reach into the game to interact with the environment, whether it was to caress a tree trunk or pull a hand-drawn map in for closer inspection.
In the video below, Producer Matt Morton gives a full tour of Datura's interface and universe - it's absolutely worth watching.
Intrigued by the game's cryptic presentation and strong emphasis on player choice, I spoke with Director Michal Staniszewski to learn more about his inspirations.
If Datura intrigues you, be sure to tune into this Thursday's PlayStation Blogcast for another segment discussing this enigmatic PSN title. And if you have questions, be sure to leave them in the comments.
