Konami makes a splash with Puddle on XBLAŽ and PlayStationŽNetwork
Company: Konami
Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH today confirmed the launch date for its clever Xbox LIVEŽ Arcade and PlayStationŽNetwork puzzler, Puddle. The publisher also released a number of new images of the prize-winning title.

Puddle will be released via Xbox LIVEŽ Arcade for the Xbox 360Ž video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and via the PlayStationŽNetwork for the PlayStationŽ3 computer entertainment system on January 25th. The game challenges the player to guide a number of liquid properties rocket fuel through a series of stages, each more inventive than the last.

The new screenshots showcase the broad variety of courses available to navigate. Players must dodge heat beams and rays of electric current that can fry their puddle, or handle a blob of radioactive fluid with care, follow a virtual puddle of rocket fuel through a hand drawn blueprint, and even follow a sip of water as it makes its way through a human body!

Players guide their respective liquid by tilting the environment, balancing each fluid’s unique properties with the environmental factors of gravity, friction, and each course’s obstacles. Players can only see one small section of a stage at a time, thus Puddle will offer plenty of unexpected twists, keeping players alert and ready for the next challenge. Puddle for the PlayStationŽ Network also supports motion controls using the PlaystationŽ Move or Sixaxis controller.

Puddle began as a student project and duly won a Student Showcase prize at the Independent Gaming Festival at the Game Developer’s Conference 2010. It arrives now as a fully-fledged downloadable game unlike anything players have experienced before."
