The very brilliant and obscure Suda 51 has announced a partnership of his company Grasshopper Manufacture and Hungarian developer Digital Reality for a new title 'Sine Mora'. The jointly-developed game will be available on both PSN and XBLA with other titles to follow.
Sine Mora will be an innovate shooter that mixes traditional side-scrolling gameplay with unique time manipulation mechanics. Whilst taking advantage of the newest in 3D display technology to deliver a horizontal side-scrolling shooter unlike any other. Through the alliance, both companies are aiming to provide new, innovative titles for the online gaming market, further titles and further information have been promised to be announced in the coming months.
“We think we can strongly benefit from having an ally such as Digital Reality in the digital publishing realm, who can provide long term online publishing services for their partners, and to gamers,” said Suda 51, CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture, Inc.
Andras Peller, CEO of Digital Reality agreed. “The partnership with GhM is an important step for Digital Reality. This collaboration with a top-tier Japanese developer pursues the development of our publishing line-up offering creative freedom to developers for high value titles dedicated for the online distribution.”
We at Gamercast are crazy for Suda 51 and his company Grasshopper Manufacture, and can't wait to see what Sine Mora will look like, although it may not contain his trademark oddness that most of his games do, it sounds very intriguing, whether or not they create innovative titles will wait to be seen.
