Not too much is known about T.U.M right now other than it has a slightly creepy trailer. I get an I-robot feel meets Ratchet and Clank with a little Flower. Nope, doesn’t make any sense to me either but it is worth a watch.
The game is being developed by Version2Games who developed made “Smash ‘N’ Survive that was recently released on PSN.
Here is the description of the game from Version2Games:
Jay wakes up from cryogenic sleep. He does not know who he is and where he is. As soon as he gets out, he discovers a world that is entirely made up of concrete and metal. There are no traces of life, no animals, no trees, not even weeds among the stones. The only remnants of nature are dried out plants with no leaves on them, just roots and dead vines.
He soon comes across creatures that have enslaved beings like himself. He must escape them to save his live and there’s only one way is to fight those creatures which makes him an accidental hero. That’s when he hears a voice, the voice of Gaia, the mother nature. She asks him to restore life to this once-thriving place.
The game is a mix of puzzle and combat with dark humor embedded in the dialogs, surroundings and even characters.
God of War III was ‘officially’ the last God of War in the series. Sony did mention prior to GOW3′s release that it would be Kratos’ last outing. [spoiler intro="End of GOW3"]
Kratos went straight to the top – after finshing off the likes of Poseidan, Hades, Helios and his half-brother Hercules, he fulfilled his vengeance by killing off Zeus towards the end of the game. [/spoiler]That for me was the moment of the game I truly realised that there would be no more Kratos adventures for me to enjoy.
Of course, I was wrong as we saw the PSP games and the legendary PS2 games remastered – but they were mere episodes of Kratos’ past enjoyed by many originally on a different platform – but now in HD on the PS3 – and they didn’t disappoint.
It now seems that GOW3 wasn’t the end of our much loved character, as a certain job requirement has sprung up across the web. A listing posted on Creative Heads states that Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) developer Santa Monica is looking for a Senior Staff Concept Artist for a God of War project.

Sony has recently announced that it has shipped 3.7 million PS3′s in Q2 of this fiscal year which is a full 1.4 million more than the Xbox 360. This brings the total PS3′s to 56 million where as the Xbox 360 is 57.3 million units shipped.
The bad news is Sony listed a 350 million dollar loss for the entire company while MS posted a profit in its game division.
In other news the PS2 sold a surprising 4.3 million units so far this year. This system will not die.
