That new direction is "sideways." The new Vita puzzle game by the developer of The Flying Hamster is played in a vertical format, requiring you to upend your system as you control the sun, pushing rays through clouds to cause rain to fall on flowers. You have to avoid ... evil clouds ... who will incinerate your flowers if stimulated.
Each flower you collect goes into your personal (virtual) garden, for those days you just want to look at some beautiful (cartoon simulations of) nature. There's no release date yet, but there is an adorable trailer, above.
