If you have never heard of Guacamelee! the best thing to do is to open your mind, relax, and watch the below trailer:
I know what you are probably thinking..."What is this 'Pub Fund'? And what does this mean for ME?"
Well it simply means that you can expect Guacamelee! to exclusively launch on the PlayStation Network for both the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita. That's a lot of 's! You can also expect the game to take advantage of the special features offered by each of the platforms (details of these to come later - stay tuned).
Set in a world inspired by Mexican culture, Guacamelee! features a down-on-his-luck agave farmer named Juan Aguacate, who sets out to save the world when El Presidente's Daughter is kidnapped by an Evil Charro Skeleton. The story takes place in and around a small village in Mexico, and has the player travelling through "The World of the Living" and "The World of the Dead" on his quest to rescue the girl he loves.
We'll be showing the game next week at E3 running on both the PS3 and the PS Vita. And for up-to-date development news, make sure to follow us on Twitter [Register or Login to view links]
