flOw is the first game ever to come from the university to first-party publishing on a major console. Initially an MFA (Master of Fine Arts) thesis, flOw is a game about piloting an aquatic organism through a surreal biosphere where players consume other organisms, evolve, and advance their organisms down toward the abyss. The stunning graphics and power of PlayStation 3 system set the stage for a truly unique gameplay experience.

Players can also customize the appearance of their organisms based on gameplay.

KEY FEATURES:

• Using the SIXAXIS WirelessController – Gamers can use the analog thumb stick or take advantage of the SIXAXIS wireless controller motion sensors to glide, flit, and flOw through the universe of flOw.
• Global Online Creature Sharing – Gamers can check on everything from how much they’ve eaten, to how large their creature is, to how they’ve evolved, and much more, then compare it to the rest of the world.

Its not a sequel as such, but it will have new content, better graphics, improved controls, better soundtrack, online play etc. Basically taking the game to the next level, while addressing consumer feedback from the PSP version (the developer collected about 60 pages worth in a doc). At Neogaf developer Mario confirmed the game will have a free downloadable demo.

These third party titles have yet to receive either information or screenshots. More game titles and info coming in the next few days.
