If you would get only one thing out of this Lightfield article, it’s that this game is an omnidirectional version of parkour with spaceships in a hyper-futuristic environment. Intriguing no? Developer Lost in the Garden announced this title over on the PlayStation Blog today and we couldn’t be more thrilled. It’s not often that a racing game comes along without predefined roads and abstract architecture. You can use your light racer to attach to any surface, invert your direction, and discover your own way to win a race. We highly recommend you check out the announcement trailer above to get your own sense about it. Trust us, it’s hard to put into words, but we’re going to try. Imagine if Tron’s light cycles met with the Wipeout franchise. Sounds about right.
There’s been no release date made available at the time of this writing, but rest assured we will be keeping our eyes out for it like a hawk. Lost in the Garden is a relatively new, and indie, developer so Lightfield is its first project. Here’s hoping that the debut success matches Lince Works’ Aragami. Definitely let us know what you think of this unique and new racer. We’ll gladly discuss all aspects of it.
