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!

  


Where I come from, that is something you would refer to as purty.

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

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.

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.

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

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...

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

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.

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.

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.)

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.

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.
