Flower is one of those games that you can't quite place in a category. If you've already looked at our previous gameplay footage, you may be asking yourself why anyone would want to play a game with flower petals. And is this even a game in the first place? Flower is unique, it's beautiful and it even tells a story (really!) The preview build we received only gave us access to the first three levels, which look very similar to each other, making you wonder where this game is even going. We met with Sony and checked one of the later night levels (which you can see below) and found that those three levels were merely preparing you for things to come. Flower does blossom into something more than blades of grass and blue skies, but since the game is relatively short with only seven levels, we don't want to give away any surprises.

So, what do you think Flower is about?
