While Mushroom Men on Wii was a full 3D adventure in which your tiny fungus friends navigated the human-sized world, Pax's Truffle Trouble is a more abstract experience that seems inspired by Catherine.
Set in a dream world, the mushroom Pax has to move from left to right along a series of cubes that constantly appear in front of him. Behind him is a monstrous "truffle princess." In order to escape, he has to push, pull, and pick up and move cubes to make a safe path. Both the use of block puzzles for traversal and the weird relationship themes – the truffle princess is motivated by her desire to kiss Pax – remind me of Atlus's weird, weird puzzler from last year, though Truffle Trouble uses side-scrolling block environments instead of giant towers.
Devolver plans to release Truffle Trouble
on PS3 PSN, XBLA, and PC. It's being funded through a drive on the crowdfunding service Gambitious
, with 38 days remaining on the drive and just six pledges to date.
