PSN-exclusive Rochard announced, features platforms

Finnish developer Recoil Games has announced a new PSN exclusive today, a platformer called Rochard.

Rochard, is an “action packed” side-scrolling platformer which revolves around an astro-miner called John Rochard.

The character has the ability to manipulate gravity for solving puzzles, defeating enemies and tackling bosses.

For doing so, he is equipped with a tool called a G-Lifter. Players can utilize it to lift and manoeuvre heavy objects, and, later on, to swing and jump long distances.

Here’s what Recoil’s Burt Kane has to say about their game:

“We have been working on Rochard for some time now and we’re very excited to start showing this clever, funny, unique adventure title to PlayStation Network gamers.”

“The hero, John Rochard, is no marine or super soldier, but just a tough, ordinary miner with a moustache, placed in an extraordinary situation. The combination of its humorous style, explorative space antics and the player’s ability to manipulate gravity will really make Rochard stand out.”

The game is slated to release in spring 2011.
