Germinator announced for PSN, coming this winter

Germinator, a "bubble" puzzle game, is coming to PlayStation 3 via the PlayStation Network this winter, developer Creat Studios announced today.

The pathogen-based game's fiction concerns a disease outbreak in the suburbs that you must contain. How? By smashing germs together and then exploding them before they grow too large, of course. Germinator's various colors of bacteria each feature their own characteristics, which you'll have to take into account when arranging the germs to maximize your score. Local multiplayer modes are available, along with PlayStation Move support and 1080p visuals.

Creat Studios expects to launch Germinator on PlayStation Network later this year or in early 2013. The developer has not yet announced a price, but in the meantime, you can check out eight screenshots above and a trailer below.
