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. Our aim with Chronovolt was to bring a challenging platform adventure to PS Vita, whilst making use of its unique touch interfaces and gyroscopic controls. From the start, we had a steampunk theme in our heads that could allow us to create worlds and characters with strange machines and futuristic sources of energy. HG Wells’ classic sci-fi novel, The Time Machine, was a definite source of inspiration. A time manipulation concept not only allowed us to jump between very different settings, but was also a perfect fit for the Vita’s touch controls, allowing players to manipulate time with their fingers. (Chronovolt, PS Vita)

This looks frustrating as all hell lol and I'll probably give it a shot, til I shout bloody murder and throw my vita across the room (hopefully not!)

So that's basically Marble Madness. Wasn't really what I would expect from a "steampunk platformer".

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

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.
