Dyad is going to launch on Tuesday, July 17 in North America for PlayStation Network. It's also been announced that PlayStation Plus users will be get a 20% discount on the $14.99 asking price.

I wasn't sure how everyone else would react to the game, but people seem to generally dig it. Upon seeing the exclusive screenshots below, I think you'll agree that "psychedelic" is a rather fitting descriptor.

If this footage makes Dyad seem indecipherable, I can sympathize. Even having played the PlayStation Network title myself, I can barely keep up with it. One of the coolest aspects of Dyad is its music. On the PlayStation Blo...
