There’s a new puzzler on the XBLA landscape today called Storm, which has been referred to in the past as a cross between Braid and Flower. Certainly that’s a good comparison, so you may just want to take note and download it today. PS3 owners, you’ll have to wait until next week, as the game won’t hit PSN until June 18.
In Storm, players use natural phenomena to guide a simple seed to fertile soil so it can take root and spring to life. Using the subtleties and strengths of nature to move a broken branch, players can fill a small pond or make snow fall to solve puzzles and create natural paths.
Take your time and explore nature’s nooks and crannies, or simply enjoy the ambiance as you float, blow and bounce a seed to the perfect place for it to take root. Storm has three different modes — Adventure, Challenge and Spirit — each of which is set in a gorgeous environment and enhanced by soothing, nature-inspired soundscapes.
Storm is available today on Xbox Live for 800 Microsoft Points and available for PC at the game’s website for the same price ($9.99/9.99€). The PlayStation Network (PS3) version will be available worldwide on June 18 for $9.99/9.99€ as well.
The puzzler was released by indiePub Entertainment, whose previous titles include Kona’s Crate, Vessel, Storm, Capsized, Bad Bots, Hungry Gows and Pictago.
