Part two of a developer blog for Dark Void has popped up over on the game’s official website, according to Capcom Unity.

In it, the developers talk about the changes being worked on in the game, including the new “hover up” ability.

“Unlike the obvious appeal of rocketing around with a jetpack, “hover” might not immediately sound sexy, but if you think about it like a game designer, it’s actually pretty revolutionary,” says Capcom Unity. ”

“Being able to hover up (or down, or left, or right) basically makes every part of every area accessible. It adds a lot of fun, but also creates a lot of challenges in terms of creating level flow, maintaining difficulty, etc.”

Game’s out in January for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
