MAGRUNNER: Dark Pulse added PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade to its available platforms this week. We won't say it's a Portal-like, but there are plenty of similarities in the format and story arc. Of course, there are far worse games to emulate, so we won't knock any points off for that. The console launch trailer, below, goes from crisp, brightly colored test chambers to something that looks a bit more Lovecraftian.
Magrunner: The Console Launch Trailer
Magrunner Dark Pulse, the puzzle/action game from Frogwares Studio, is set for global release this week on PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360®!
The game is available now worldwide on the PlayStation®Network, and will be available tomorrow on Xbox LIVE® Arcade! To celebrate the launch, players can now view the console trailer and immerse themselves in the Magrunner universe, where technology confronts the Cthulhu Mythos!
In the near future of 2048, a handful of young and brilliant citizens are hand-picked by the Gruckezber Corporation to join 'Magtech', an elite space research training program. Equipped with a glove using Gruckezber technology, the 7 candidates in the program have to make their way through a maze of increasingly spectacular rooms by magnetically charging various items and elements in the environment that will either attract or repel. What initially appears to be the chance of a lifetime quickly turns into a living nightmare where they must survive in a high-tech world that has spiraled out of control. This descent into hell is perfectly illustrated in this launch trailer.
Magrunner Dark Pulse is now available worldwide on the PlayStation®Network. It will be available worldwide on Xbox LIVE® Arcade tomorrow. The game is also available on PC on most major digital download platforms.
