Suda 51 is bringing his talents to the Microsoft/Sony platform. Yesterday, at the news-plentiful Gamescom 2010, Suda 51 and Grasshopper Manufacture, Inc. announced Sine Mora, a XBLA/PSN game “which mixes traditional side-scrolling gameplay with unique time manipulation mechanics.” Read on for the full press-release and my thoughts on it.
“Grasshopper Manufacture, Inc. (GhM), and Digital Reality (DR) are proud to announce their partnership for co-developing a range of games. Their first title will be an innovative shooter called ‘Sine Mora’, which mixes traditional side-scrolling gameplay with unique time manipulation mechanics.
Both companies are aiming with this alliance to provide new, innovative titles for the online gaming market. “We think we can strongly benefit from having an ally such as Digital Reality in the digital publishing realm, who can provide long term online publishing services to its partners, and to gamers.” said Suda 51, CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture, Inc. Andras Peller, CEO of Digital Reality agreed;“The partnership with GhM is an important step for Digital Reality. This collaboration with a Japanese top-tier developer pursues the development of our publishing line-up, whilst offering creative freedom to developers who want to make high value titles for online distribution.”
As the first step of this collaboration, Grasshopper Manufacture, Inc. and Digital Reality announced today at gamescom the co-development of Sine Mora for PSN and XBLA. Sine Mora takes advantage of the newest in 3D display technology to deliver an horizontal side-scrolling shooter unlike any other, with a unique twist on time manipulation.
Further titles and further information will be announced in the coming months.”
It’s clear that the real news to them was the attachment between Grasshopper and Digital Reality and not the game. No news on the game was released apart from it having time mechanics and being a side-scroller which seems like it’s in Grasshopper’s wheelhouse. Let’s hope for the funny.
No release date has been confirmed for Sine Mora.
