First look At Magrunner Coming To PSN And XBLA

Magrunner Dark Pulse, the action/reflection game for PC, Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network, today unveils more through the very first video of the game!  In the near future, in 2050, a handful of young and brilliant citizens have been chosen by Gruckezber Corporation to join the Magtech training program for space exploration. Equipped with a special glove using Gruckezberg’s technology, the candidates have to solve their way through a huge maze of challenge rooms, by magnetically charging objects that will attract or repel each other. But when an earthquake disrupts the training program, what seemed to be the chance of a lifetime for the candidates will soon become a descent into folly and cosmic horror! In this video, plunge with Dax, the hero of the game, into a future where Technology confronts the Cthulhu Mythos!

Developed on Unreal Engine 3, Magrunner transports players into the near future, where technology will confront the Cthulhu Mythos as it was imagined by the author of fantasy novels, H.P. Lovecraft.

In 2050, the hero of Magrunner is selected to participate in the Magrunner spatial program organized by Magtech Corporation, using a new technology destined to produce clean energy. The participants will have to harness the power of this technology to complete the challenges of the training course. Covered by the media, the event takes the world by storm with all eyes locked on live streams. The participants, thinking this was the chance of a lifetime, will soon understand that the event they have entered was hiding a darker secret….

Magrunner puts your reflexes and brain to the test, with simple yet exciting mechanics: with the Magtech glove, you can load objects with different charges. Two items loaded with the same charge will attract each other, while two items loaded with different charges will repel! With these simple mechanics opens
a broad range of possibilities. Upon mastering them you will be able to progress along the game, solving puzzles by studying your surroundings, testing possibilities and analyzing their effects.

Quickly, the high-tech installations that host the Magrunner program will plunge into a foreign, perilous parallel universe: the world of Cthulhu, a strange land filled with strange creatures imagined by H.P.Lovecraft. In this dangerous world, your
skills will be tested more than ever.Do not falter, for that your very life is at stake… and the fate of mankind is in your hands.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
