Introducing Chronovolt, a steampunk platformer for PS Vita

PlayStation Blog: Hi everyone. David from Playerthree here, to tell you about Chronovolt – our new PS Vita game debuting on the PlayStation Plus service next week.

HG Wells’ classic sci-fi novel, The Time Machine, was a definite source of inspiration.

I got excited when I read "Steampunk platformer" but this is not even close to what I was expecting to see.

Meh.

I was going to post pretty much the same comment almost word for word. Saw the characters and thought "Oh yay~! Steampunk AND platformer!" Then my smile flew south and..yeah..

This video has me questioning myself alot. Did I completely misunderstand what steampunk was or was it them that doesn't have a clue.

Just seem like the gameplay element was from another game, the title and concept art just doesn't match the gameplay at all.
