The Holidays are here and the season is in high gear! It turns out that lots of people are wishing for a Falcon under their tree. You can check out the Falcon in GamePro's Holiday Gift Guide and Tom's Hardware Holiday Buyer's Guide. Enjoy!
Novint Technologies, Inc., the pioneer of 3D touch for consumer computing, has acquired the 3D touch rights to "Advent Rising" from Majesco Entertainment. The popular third-person action adventure game was released for the PC and Xbox® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and was written by Nebula award-winning science fiction author, Orson Scott Card.
The Falcon is an entirely new type of game controller that allows users to fully experience the advanced play dynamics in this cinematic, action-packed title. Novint's version of "Advent Rising," Ascension Reborn, will utilize Novint's patented 3D touch technology allowing players to feel and control the game's arsenal of firepower, vehicular combat, and superhuman powers within a visually imaginative, intergalactic story.
"'Advent Rising' is a perfect game for integration with the Falcon. Many of the gameplay mechanics were challenging to implement with traditional videogame controllers, but the Falcon takes those advanced concepts to a new level," said Tom Anderson, Novint CEO. "We are excited both about adding such a powerful title to our line-up and working with a great publisher like Majesco."
"'Advent Rising's' masterful approach to graphics and game play mechanics coupled with the tremendous literary vision of Orson Scott Card captivates the mind and emotions of the player," said Liz Buckley, Director of Marketing, Majesco. "Adding the sense of touch into 'Advent Rising' brings the Advent universe to life in a new way and makes the epic experience that much more immersive for the player."
In "Advent Rising," a common legend pervades the galaxy -- that of a powerful, ancient race that will one day unite the universe. Millions of cultures from vastly distant worlds revere and hallow these mythological beings known as Humans. One race, the Seekers, know Humans actually exist and are threatened by their potential power. Under the guise of benevolent explorers, the Seekers travel throughout the galaxy in a desperate attempt to eradicate any Human society they unearth.
Players assume the role of Gideon Wyeth, a remnant of the last human outpost, on the brink of discovering the incredible powers that lay dormant within him. It is these powers the Seekers are so desperate to suppress.
Novint's touch-enabled, PC version of "Advent Rising" will be available for download from N VeNT(TM), Novint's interface to Falcon games, information, software updates, unique content, and community. During the holidays, the Limited Edition Falcon is being offered by select stores for $189, a $50 instant rebate off the $239 MSRP. The Falcon is sold at J&R Music World, Fry's Electronics, CompUSA, GoGamer.com, and TigerDirect nationwide.

In the mean time, we'll give you a preview of another great game for the Novint Falcon, Klectit. The preview of this game is for purely selfish reasons, as this is a personal favorite. But don't just take my word for it, we previewed this game at E For All and everyone loved it.
In Klectit, you use the Falcon to control the movements of a puppet, sent on a quest to collect objects scattered throughout a dazzling array of different environments. In this constantly evolving story, players will find themselves collecting candy in a sugar-coated wonderland one minute, and the next minute find themselves gobbling up plants, rocks, animals, people, and cars, eventually growing large enough to absorb entire houses. With the Falcon, you'll feel a revolutionary control method where you actually feel your momentum and mass change as you collect objects. You won’t be able to stop until you’ve collected all of the treasures in the world!
You'll be able to purchase this game for $24.95 from our Web site or N VeNT.

A classic arcade game, and the first color game ever released for the Macintosh, Crystal Quest was first introduced in the 1980's and has been a hit ever since. Now with enhanced graphics and all-new, updated gameplay, you will pilot your ship through 60 waves of frantic action, collecting crystals and evading a horde of enemies. These unique baddies spawn from portals on each side of the screen, and you must fire your main gun or deploy a smart bomb to vaporize every one. Grab all the crystals to open the gateway and complete the level, but don't forget to gather up the goodies in each wave first! With Falcon control, you can actually feel your momentum and inertia, impacts with enemies, and the activation of your entire weapons arsenal.
What game would you like to see in Novint's lineup? Let us know below!

We're continuing with previews of some of our exciting new games for the Falcon. Next up on our list is Aquatreous. Many of you have gotten a sneak peak of this game since a shorter version is included in Newton's Monkey Business. Here's an in depth description of the FULL game.
You’ve never done puzzles like this before! In this full version of Aquatreous, you will toss colorful blocks to complete nearly 200 underwater 3D brainteasers. Place three or more shapes of the same color together and they will disappear from the environment and reveal the next color. Look at upcoming colors to plot your strategy towards victory. All the while, you’ll be able to actually feel the weight of the blocks and the force of the waves as you glide the pieces into place. Enjoy eight unique game modes, a variety of different block types, and four characters with different skills. Relax with Mission mode (no timer), turn up the heat in the Timed Challenge mode, challenge your wits with Puzzle mode, and if you're stuck, the In-game Help feature will guide you through all puzzle levels. Use quick thinking and the intuitive Falcon controls to solve the riddles of Aquatreous.
You can get the full version of the game for $24.95 via N VeNT or at www.novint.com. Keep your eyes peeled for this game. It should be joining our lineup VERY soon! What's your favorite minigame in Newton's Monkey Business? Let us know below!
