Our Madrid correspondent José Manuel sends word of two games: LocoRoco, a fun-looking, joy-filled PSP game that seems to merge the physics of the noir Gish with the slap-happiness of Quest for the Rest. Additionally, there’s Green, Eggs, and Pan! 2006 winner of the UIUC G4G competition. Strong enough for a man, it’s made for girls, and for Windows, the latter of which keeps me from saying anything more about it. It’s good to see both girl-oriented and PSP-oriented innovation, though, since I usually get word of almost nothing at all in the former category and of little beyond tedious side-fighters and licensed dreck in the latter.
