Flower-PS3

Flower is a game from Thatgamecompany, the people behind Journey and flOw.

Well, technically I'm not sure if it qualifies as a game, or an interactive art piece. How shall I explain...

You play as the wind. That's right, the wind. And what do you do as the wind? You bloom flowers. Each level starts as a lone flower blooms and a solitary petal floats up into the air. As the wind, you blow the petal across other unbloomed flowers, to make them bloom and progress through the levels. There is no fighting, no bosses, and you cannot die.

Controls:
You guide the wind and petals using the six axis motion controls. Tilt the controller up/down/left/right to make the wind move in that direction. Holding any button makes the wind blow and can be used to move fast or slow.

Goal:
The goal of every level is to bloom the flowers present to progress and reach the end of the level.

Plot
:
While there is no spoken plot, one is present and somewhat open to interpretation. From what I gather from playing, it's a commentary on how humans have destroyed parts of nature with the way we produce electricity and a possible greener solution. You'd really have to play to understand it and it's not there to beat you over the head, just give some background.

Pros:
-Looks very pretty and has some cool looking effects with the grass movement
-Relaxing with no pressure to beat the level or progress

Cons:
-Short: only has 6 levels and can be beaten very quickly if you want to rush through it.

If you can find it cheap on the PSN I say give it a go, I really like it.
