Watch us play Dyad on a tilting machine

At PAX East this year, we checked out a racing / shooter / puzzle hybrid called Dyad coming soon to PlayStation 3. And developer ][ Games put together a special way to play it just for the event.

Behold… the machine!

The game is a bit complicated, but it’s pretty easy to latch onto once you’ve got everything down. Your goal is to keep moving. In order to do that, you have to grab onto spheres that thrust you forward. Continually grabbing spheres of the same color will give you a speed boost. As you pull towards the sphere, you have to make sure that you don’t thrust directly towards it, or else you’ll hit it and get pushed back.

Another element not demonstrated in this level wraps these arm-like things around the sphere, which the player should try and move through as they go forward. Doing that will fill up your gauge in the lower middle of the screen, and once one bar is full, you can press Square to use your boost ability. While in boost, your goal is to run into as many spheres as possible to keep the boost going. Once you stop for even two seconds, the boost will end.

Dyad is in development for PlayStation 3.
