Sony Online Entertainment
(SOE) announced today Rochard
, an action packed side-scrolling puzzle platformer in the works at Recoil Games
and scheduled to be available soon through PlayStation Network. Rochard is all about the heroic space adventures of astro-miner John Rochard as he manipulates gravity in inventive ways to solve puzzles, defeat enemies and bring down the most evil of bosses. The game tests players coordination and wits as they use gravity to their advantage, changing it at will to solve environmental puzzles and advance through each level. By using the upgradable G-Lifter, the main tool of the game, players can lift and maneuver heavy objects around the environment, and can eventually swing, jump and propel themselves huge distances throughout each level.
