- SCEE Manager James Gallagher
has posted up a video trailer today for Rochard - the gravity bending platform puzzler heading exclusively to PSN.
To quote: Just next door to the gargantuan PlayStation booth here at E3
is the SOE stand and, during a break from filming our live interviews, I popped over to take a look at an interesting little platformer called Rochard
, coming exclusively to PlayStation Store this summer.
I sat down with the game's producer for a guided playthrough and, while I figured out the buttons and got my brain around the gravity manipulation gameplay, he explained the general premise.
"You play John Rochard an astro-miner at a company called Sky Rig - we're calling him an everyday hero," he explained.
"The entire company has been down on its luck in terms of finding anything but they stumble upon an alien artefact and, after reporting it to HQ, they find themselves surrounded by space pirates trying to get their hands on it. John is trying to protect his friends and find out what this artefact is in the process."
Rochard is a 2D platformer with 3D graphics, kind of like Capcom
