Datura trailer shows atmospheric adventure in action

Get a better look at Plastic’s unusual PlayStation Move title through the break.

Although the game’s Move functionality is a major selling point, the game is apparently playable with a standard Sixaxis or DualShock.

Datura is said to be “like a movie”, with one playthrough taking about the same amount of time as a feature film. Plastic hopes players will discuss the game afterwards as they would a good movie.

Plastic’s MichaƂ Staniszewski said the game is named for the poisonous but beautiful flower, reflecting the ambivalent nature of the game’s themes, which concern natural binaries like life and death.

Plenty more interesting discussion and gameplay footage in the trailer below.

Datura footage turned up last year, but it was formally announced at GDC 2012, and has not been dated.
