Flower Flies Free Feb. 12, Fragrant Footage First

Alliteration is the crutch of lazy headline writers. Just watch the trailer.

Those of you waiting for flower, the next beautiful-art-project-as-game release from flOw's thatgamecompany, are in luck. PlayStation.Blog (why do I love typing that so much?) has dropped a date of February 12 for the game to hit the PlayStation Network. If I can count on my fingers properly, that's 24 days from now, or 576 hours, or 34,560 minutes, or...wait, I'm probably not making your wait any easier here.

No pricing info is disclosed, but the PS.Blog entry does have some release thoughts from the developers. Also, a trailer!

Purty.

This is a game that you play for people that drink like drink beer to get drunk, or smoke weed to get high.

This game looks really nice. I hope it plays better than flOw did.

Awesome. Can't wait.

Looks fantastic, I hope they at least throw a 10 minute demo up or something, just to check out how it plays...or if it plays.

Looks like a nice "game"

I....don't get it.

Posted by freezerr

I'm confused. How is this a game?

Posted by Kush

Very cool news. This is the one game using six-axis that I've ever been excited for...

Edited by TwoOneFive

i had a good time with flow. but it had a lot missing to it, this one seems like its got it all goin on. it has a greater sense of purpose and achievement, and it even has some sort of "artistic" message goin on....don't really know what it is though. can't wait to mellow out and play this.

I really wish that I had a PS3 so I could play this. It seems like a really relaxing experience.

Posted by shadows_kill

weird looking game there...what do you do? do you get points for cross pollination?

It looks purty... but do you do anything else besides float around?

Posted by CleverLoginName

Flower makes me want a PS3 way more than Killzone does, what does this say about me? Flowers are way better than guns.

Posted by Milkman

I still don't know what this game is.

It looks like a purty version of Loco Roco. Seems like you control the thing of flower petals through a level and fly it through other flowers or piles of petals to make your trail thingy bigger. I really wish I had a PS3 right about now...

Love games that go out of their way to be different and inovative .  And yeah it does look purty yall .

Grass Physics: The Game

Posted by brukaoru

I don't think this game is really meant to have a purpose: It's just a nice relaxing game it seems. Nothing more.

Reminds me of the Lion King!

Yeah, kind of like flow. It really does look technically impressive and it seems like it could be slightly more challenging than flow, but that's a big maybe.

Pretty much the "game", which should be used loosely, is about flying around and activating these flower nodes. They in turn make a chime that corresponds to the melody being played. If you activate a few flower nodes in a circular formation, it causes the area around those flowers to become more lush and alive.

It looks really neat and the sixaxis controls are suppose to be intuitive and pretty precise. I can't wait, it's definately a nice change of pace from shooting Locust or Zombies as of late.

Anyone else think this game is a bit overhyped? It's pretty and everything but the gameplay looks nothing special, and from the looks of it it will probably thin in content.

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

aw crap i thought from the headline that the game would be free for day one buyers. oh well, i'm still gonna get this cuz it's pretty much beautiful.

Posted by LiquidPrince

This game looks nice.

Posted by imayellowfellow

Posted by BawlZINmotion

As long as it controls good I'm totally down with the grass.

Posted by Captain_Fookup

This will be the first game I play when I get a PS3, also on the same day an ounce of mushrooms.

Posted by JackSukeru

Well I know I'll be getting it......purty.

Edited by Snail

I really can't see what is so great and fascinating in this game.

Posted by MordeaniisChaos

Purty? Thats an understatement, I love it. Should be fun to play, can't wait to get my hands on it =D

Posted by Gizmo

I hope the next Oblivion has vegetation like this.

This game Blows.


(get it... because you play as the wind)

Posted by Venatio

The game looks amazing, I want it

Posted by Hilts

This is my kind of game. like 3d pacman with no monsters or high scores or power pills. I saw a preview on 1UP show (RIP) and they raved about it having slick controls and free gameplay style.

Posted by John1912

Yea........Um no....Just no.....

Posted by pirate_republic

Looks good, but the gameplay looks rather dull. (I don't make a habit of playing casual games... but I might give this a shot.)

Posted by pause422

For some reason I have a pretty good interest in this, and I hated flow. I'm definitely gonna try it, even though it looks sort of like a tech demo that you barely do anything with, but that's why I want to play it and see what it really is. Videos really don't describe this game well at all.

Posted by Junpei

spilledmilkfactory, I thought the same thing you did from the title.

I remain cautiously curious on this one... I'll wait until the jury is out on the full version.

Posted by Media_Master

I have to get this
