Back in January, an indie game called Puddle was released on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network by developer Neko Entertainment. The game, which was created by six students and won a Student Showcase award the at Independent Games Festival during GDC 2010, received some favorable reviews, as well as some not-so-favorable reviews, across the good ol’ internet.
Now, though, Neko is releasing the game on the Vita, and the studio has stated that it will be addressing previous issues. “After we released the game on PS3, we worked hard to get a better handle on the game’s mechanics, so we’d be able to deliver a new version of Puddle on PS Vita,” said Neko QA Manager Sebastian Chipot on the PlayStation Blog. “We paid particular attention to feedback from PS3 players when working on the PS Vita version — which will have many exclusive features!”
Among the new features included in the Vita version of Puddle are: the ability to skip tough levels (Wait, what?); new control options such as tilt controls; touchscreen and rear touch pad functionality; and loading screen tips. If you’re looking for something new to play on your Vita, watch out for Puddle next week. It will be available for $7.99.
