Awarded “Digital Game of the Year 2013” by HCGamer.pl, Seaven Studio’s time-stopping platformer Ethan: Meteor Hunter is making it’s way onto the PlayStation Vita and PC via Steam.
“Often described as ‘when Super Meat Boy meets Braid,'” the game follows a rodent named Ethan after he’s struck by a meteor which leaves him with the power to freeze time and move objects.
Seaven credits Reddit with getting the game past Greenlight, after users there backed it in the wake of its discouraging sales. As for the Vita version, players can now use Ethan’s telekinetic powers to move objects in stasis using the front and rear touchscreens, a feature that Seaven’s Olivier Penot said “just made sense with the telekinesia feature,” which you can see below.
No word on a release date for Vita, but the PC version will be available on February 7 for 20% off at launch, coming in at $8. PS3 users can try out a demo this week, with that version on sale at $7, or $5 for PS Plus users – the game will be Cross-Buy, so getting it on PS3 will unlock the Vita version when it arrives.
