Sony Online has launched Recoil Games’ Rochard, a “puzzle-platforming, astro-mining action adventure.” Voiced by Jon St. John, Duke Nukem himself, John Rochard is an astro miner who stumbles upon an ancient alien artifact while prospecting in an asteroid. Shortly after the discovery, his team is kidnapped by space pirates and must be rescued using the only tool he has, the gravity-defying G-Lifter.
Rochard is a PSN-only release and is available for $9.99.
Developed by Recoil Games, Rochard is an original space adventure game that challenges players to use coordination and logic to manipulate gravity on the fly and overcome dangerous obstacles and deadly foes to advance. By using the upgradable G-Lifter, the main tool of the game, players lift and maneuver heavy objects around the environment, and jump and propel themselves across huge chasms and onto towering elevations throughout each level. The hybrid puzzle-platform gameplay is buoyed by humor, slick visuals and clever audio touches. The game’s challenges require more than just a quick trigger finger; players have room to improvise their way through both combat and puzzles using increasingly powerful tools at their disposal.
