GameSpot E3 2008: Flower Updated Impressions

GameSpot writes: "In a breakout session set up by Sony Computer Entertainment America during E3, Jenova Chen, the co-founder of thatgamecompany went over the first few levels of their lovely creation, Flower.

It's not adrenaline pumping but it can be uplifting. There was a level shown with windmills and the goal was the activate them all to get the wind flowing into a narrow valley. As the flower petals were funneled in and the speed and music picked up, the demo ended, leaving us guessing what kind of surprises and twists this game will have."
