The Press

This is what the press is saying about Pollen Sonata.


Visually, Pollen Sonata reminds us of Katamari Damacy, but the gameplay is strongly reminiscent of the indie PC game Cloud. You can't go wrong with that combination, and the game looks very intriguing with its calm atmosphere and free-form gameplay. Definite potential.


So to all the publishers reading this: cooommeee oooonnnnn. If you can pony up for Wing Island, you can surely pony up for this.


The game also seems to have one of those "finding the epic in the small, unseen events in life" plots, and I'm a total sucker for them. Here's hoping we see more on this soon.

The Guardian

Little is known about the studio responsible but this trailer's building a bit of a buzz on the 'blogosphere'. Lot's of people are mentioning Pilot Wings. But with... pollen...


The game looks fantastic and I hope it finds a publisher and a home on the Wii. The Wiimote seems like a natural fit for this title, and the system could use some really experimental games.
