Sony Announces Ecolibrium Arrives on PlayStation Vita Tomorrow 100°
129w ago - Sony European Product Manager Mayumi Donovan has announced today that Ecolibrium is arriving on PlayStation Vita tomorrow.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone. So, you've already been introduced to the wonderful world of Discovery Apps for PlayStation Vita via the weird and funny Frobisher Says!

If you're wondering what's next in line for the series, I'm happy to confirm the arrival of Ecolibrium.

Ecolibrium is an imaginative real-time eco-system simulator where the aim is to maintain harmony within your own created environment. You need to select creatures, plants and artefacts to create a balanced eco-system.

If your eco-system is not balanced, you can feed your animals manually or exile unwanted animals into the wilderness using Vita's near feature for others to pick up for their respective eco-system.

Grow your world by hunting fantastical creatures from the environment around you using GPS or, if you prefer, you can sell or buy them in the online player-to-player auctions.

It's all in aid of giving your eco-system the perfect harmony, so don't be shy! And if you're competitive, try online challenges and climb up the global leaderboards.
