Sega Crushes PSP With Unique New Puzzle Game

In a very exciting announcement today, Sega has unveiled the development of a brand new PSP-exclusive puzzle game called Crush. Developed by UK-based Kuju Brighton, Crush introduces a brilliant new game concept that melds together 3D and 2D gameplay like never before, promising to challenge players unlike any other puzzler before it. In the game, players will navigate a 3D world armed with the ability to “crush” the surrounding environment into a 2D landscape in order to open up new areas and complete various challenges, and then “uncrush” the 2D world back into 3D.

Crush introduces a fascinating new gameplay perspective on the PSP that encourages players to stretch their imagination in a whole new way,” said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA® of America, Inc. “The spatial concept of the crushing mechanic is something truly unique that encourages users to think back and forth between 3D and 2D objects and environments to engage different parts of their brain, and see beyond what is literally in front them.”

Crush is currently scheduled for a summer debut. For a taste of what the “crush” mechanic is all about, check out this trailer Sega has released along with today’s announcement. It’s about damn time the PSP started getting some truly unique and innovative games like this!
