Hi everyone! I’m Michal Staniszewski from Plastic Studios – yep, the same creators of ‘Linger in Shadows.’ Two years ago we were asked to closely investigate possibilities of the Playstation Move, which was still in the prototype phase then. Today we are proud to present you ‘Datura,’ which uses the controller in a quite innovative way.
Finding yourself in a mysterious forest, players will navigate their way through the game by controlling their character’s hand using Playstation Move technology. From here you are immersed into the game’s unique experimental narrative and original way of interaction, which allows the player to experience the world not only visually but also empirically: an illusion that you really touch trees, faces and other objects.
While taking inspiration from film-like narratives, Datura is a story you get a chance to participate in. As the player travels through the game, they encounter choices and face their consequences. However through these puzzles it is the element of anxiety that Datura explores: was it a right or a wrong choice?
Datura will be featured at GDC this month so make sure you keep a look out for upcoming news and first looks of the game.
