Datura  



Surreal adventure game Datura comes to PS3 on May 8


6:00 PM on 04.27.2012



You remember hearing about Datura, right? It's that PlayStation 3 adventure game with a floating hand, an assortment of seemingly unconnected, bizarre sequences, and the pig. If you couldn't tell, I am struggling to describe what, exactly, this thing really is.

We'll find out soon enough, as the game is set for a PlayStation Network release on May 8 in North America. (Europe gets it a day later.) Plastic Studios game director Michal Staniszewski says that Datura is best played in a single session, much like Journey before it.

Go dig out your PS Move controller, if you have one. Otherwise, a DualShock 3 will work just fine.
