With all the PS Vita news pouring out during E3 as well as the aftermath of impressions and previews galore, some smaller games may have gotten lost in the shuffle. Tucked away in the upstairs media-only area of the Sony E3 booth sat the unassuming Mister Inkjet. The game is being developed by AQ Interactive in Japan, and was shown in a very early stage of development. We got our hands all over Mr. Inkjet, and have a preview for you after the jump.
Mister Inkjet is the game’s tentative title, one which may likely change as the game approaches release. There were only three levels available to demo here, and I was reminded that what I was seeing was extremely early in development. What was here was functional. You play as a blank character – the demo had me taking a picture of my face using the Vita’s front camera for the character’s head, and a picture of whatever I wanted for the body. At the mention of this I was concerned that I would be asked to draw a body on the spot, a truly horrifying proposition considering my drawing abilities. Luckily my fears were quelled when the demoer whipped out a sketch book. We picked a dark suit, and my face was put on that body. This really is nothing new, but it is a good showcase for the quality of the images captured using the Vita’s cameras – they look exponentially crisper and far less grainy than the images PlayStation 3′s Eye camera can capture.
