Flow and Flower are adult games?

2 min read


There is a story doing the rounds at the moment that the studio behind the hit PSN titles, flOw and Flower, may be planning to release a title using the Natal accessory from Microsoft.

That story has little to no backing however it did use a quote from ThatGameCompany (the developers) which I thought was a little strange.

When talking about their relationship with Sony, Jenova Chen states

“They have this appreciation of games that are more interesting to adults. They prefer adult entertainment and the games we make are a good match for them”

Now while I agree with him on this one seeing that God of War, Gran Turismo and Killzone are hardly aimed at the younger market, I do struggle to see flOw or Flower as a game marketed or developed with adults in mind.

Maybe he has a case with Flower which is more an artistic experience than a game but flOw is a beautiful yet pretty standard title that is enjoyed by gamers of virtually all ages.

Not that it matters either way, I just thought it was an odd statement to make.

    lol… again, nice one with the image.

    i’ve played both games and i do agree with you its not exactly what i’d call a “adult” games. but i cannot see a 10+ year kid playing through both games while actually understanding what the developers were trying to say… if anything.
