I think a few people were buzzing about this game a few months ago. Well its finally out, I downloaded the PS3 version this morning, and its awesome, as expected! For the uninitiated, its a puzzle game where perspective rules the land, what you SEE is what exists, if you can't see it, its not there! This trailer explains it better:

The whole game basically fucks with our notion of 3d-space as it relates to videogames we've been playing for the last decade and a half or so. Sometimes I have trouble seeing the solution to a puzzle because i have to get out of the 3D mindset beigelaugh.gif

The game is $10 for PSP or PS3, both include 56 levels plus a level editor, and it automatically downloads user created levels for free whenever you launch the game. Pretty damn good deal. The only thing I don't like is the motion controls are terrible, its just not responsive enough to use when you're trying to play seriously and get a good time.
What an incredibly inventive idea, it shares an innovation in the same area as Portal. I think i'll see about getting this very soon!
