Sony's Pub Fund exists as a $20 million kitty designed to bring indie games to the fore, or rather, the PlayStation Network. Thus far, that program has resulted in the likes of Burn Zombie Burn, Joe Danger, Hoard, and Explodemon. Now, the next product of that program has been dated, as Sony has announced Eufloria will be available through the PSN on October 4.
Originally released for the PC in 2009, the Omni Systems-developed strategy game has a perplexing premise, in which players attempt to colonize asteroids by growing organic life upon them. Those imperial aims are anything but nonviolent, as players do battle with other organic life forms that they encounter.
Omni has made a number of tweaks over the original for Eufloria's PSN release. In addition to rebalanced levels and updated artificial intelligence, the game includes new unit types, collectibles, and music. Omni has also spruced up the game's graphics as well as reworked Eufloria's control scheme.
Eufloria will cost $10. For more information, check out GameSpot's previous coverage of Eufloria.
