I wonder why I never got wind of this sooner? That ‘tech demo’ Sony was showing of Linger In The Shadows is apparently a full blown game. Apparently the Aussie government rated it (whoa a game that didn’t get banned, surely not?) and now the UK PlayStation blog has a game page for it. So it’s confirmed, LITS is not a tech demo it’s a game and the PS Blog has given us some idea about how the game will work.

“A dreamlike, seemingly random sequence unfolds before your eyes; then it stops, spools back and starts again. Can you influence it? Can you alter or extend what you have already seen?

A collaboration of hypnotic art, subtle gameplay and invigorating music, there are no rules or traditions in Linger in Shadows. The laws of physics and time are irrelevant. This is not a game in the traditional sense, rather an abstract, interactive experience designed to challenge and captivate your inquisitive mind.”

  • Discover the five hidden sigils and unlock the path forward
  • Take control of time and realise the full potential of each scene as it unravels
  • Watch, enjoy, experiment and let the experience wash over you

Now this sounds like something that the PSN seems to thrive on (I assume this is a PSN game). Weird arty concepts that are ultimately good games. Now there’s no more details than this but I think this is definitely one to watch. Hey I might even check out that trailer now.

Just downloaded it and it actually is more of a tech demo that takes about 15 minutes to complete but it is still only $3 so it is worth it

Just finished it. It took me two goes but i’ve got 100% of the trophies which is kinda sweet. It’s not a must have, but definitely worth a go if you’ve got £2 (or $3) lying around :).
