Babel Rising Alpha Footage

Announced last October by Ubisoft and expected to ship later this year on PSN with PlayStation Move support, the home console version of the 2009 iPhone game Babel Rising finally shows up in video form.

In Babel Rising, gamers play as God, preventing humans from building the tower of Babel. Gamers use their divine powers by hurling bolts of lightning, summoning massive earthquakes or unleashing gigantic floods upon the Babylonians.

What’s embedded below is not really an official trailer of Babel Rising, but rather some raw, soundless footage taken from the alpha version of the game and uploaded last September on what seems to be the YouTube account of Mando Productions, the french developer tasked with reinventing the original effort by White Birds Production.

Alpha status aside, the footage is interesting in that it gives a better understanding of how the new version of Babel Rising will play compared to the original one, the most significant difference apparently being the ability (and therefore the necessity) to turn the camera around the tower.
