While we haven't received official confirmation as to whether or not this stage actually hails from thatgamecompany, the developer of Sony's offbeat PSN fare such as flOw and the upcoming Flower , it certainly appears to. And even if the level itself feels a tad simple and insubstantial, it contains visual nods to those two games, along with some neat thatgamecompany-inspired unlockable items. Assuming that this is a legit creation from the developer, it bodes well for other game creators to join the LBP fray. “
Maybe *somebody* could send us some pics/video for those of us who haven't checked it out yet?
And for those of you that have – I hope it's one of your favs, too!
MIT Tech Con:

Jenova is going to accept his award as being named by Technology Review as one of the Top 35 Innovators of the year. He’ll be speaking briefly on what it is he’s innovating.
Jenova is going to sit on a panel with designers from EA and Harmonix and discuss what the unique challenges are in development in differently sized teams.
Hope to see you at one or all of these! =)
So… yeah, some of you might have seen this article on Kotaku announcing a UMD bundle by SCEE. Well, the article is how we found out about it, too!
Here’s the rundown:
“The PlayStation Network Collection releases, unearthed by Siliconera, consist of one Power Pack, containing flOw, Syphon Filter: Combat Ops and Beats, and the Puzzle Pack, featuring Lemmings, Go! Puzzle and Go! Sudoku.”
So… yeah, it has been confirmed here (after some hectic phone calling and emailing), but no, we don’t have a price point as of yet. This could be a good thing, though, as the current method of downloading games to your PSP is pretty complicated, and not Mac-friendly, so all of these games could benefit from exposure through the more traditional UMD format. It is SCEE-only right now, with no word on other territories following Europe’s lead on this one. But it seems like you’ll hear about it before we do, so if you pick up on something feel free to post it on our forums.
And hopefully people who wouldn’t have thought of flOw before might give it a whirl and find out they kinda like it, too. =)
Flower has been selected as part of this year’s Wired NextFest show in Chicago. We’re pretty stoked to
