Storm Announced for PSN and XBL

19 May, 2011 - 6:50 pm by

Zoo Entertainment today announced that they are developing a new videogame for the PlayStation Network and the Xbox Live, called Storm, which will be available in Summer 2011. In Storm you’ll be able to control the weather to grow seeds into the trees by guiding them through nature themed levels with peaceful background music.

The three main elements include wind, lighting and rain. Wind moves seeds around. Lightning can break up rocks, set grass on fire and make seeds jump. Rain maneuvers seeds by filling up holes, extinguishing fires and creating bubbles. Secondary elements both complicate and enhance gameplay. Tornadoes strengthen wind, blowing seeds to higher ground. Bubbles also elevate seeds by enabling them to float, and can be used with wind to transport seeds across longer distances. Snow builds up, creating a cushion for seeds to access higher ground. Finally, ice provides a smooth sliding surface for seeds to move across.

Each level can be played in three unique game modes – adventure, challenge and spirit. Adventure mode allows untimed playthrough to unlock levels and progress in the game. Challenge mode has players finish unlocked levels to beat completion times and raise scores. Spirit mode features special orbs that are placed within the levels for players to collect as a means to rack up points and earn trophies.

A firm release date is yet to be announced.
