19w ago - Deep Silver Brand Manager Remy van Leeuwen announced that twin-stick shooter Narco Terror assaults PSN today with details below.
To quote: Hey everybody! My name is Remy from Deep Silver, and I wanted to share with you some more information on our upcoming twin-stick shooter, Narco Terror, for PlayStation Network.
Narco Terror follows the story of ex-special ops agent Rick Quinn, a one-man army that goes on a mission from the docks of Miami to the rivers of South America, to rescue his daughter.
Quinn has been working on a secret technology to stop the drug cartels' latest trafficking technique: Narco submarines. This has put him in the cross hairs of his ex-partner, Jay Delgado, who's running the subs – and the cartel that took his daughter. This drug bust just got personal.
Key inspirations for the development of Narco Terror were arcade classics such as Commando, MERCS, Ikari Warriors, and Space Invaders, and modern titles such as Assault Heroes, Renegade Ops, Geometry Wars, and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. With this approach, we've drawn inspiration from some of our favorite games of all time, while instilling modern sensibilities to create a fun mix for today's arcade gamers.
As a result, you'll see that Narco Terror consists of many different...
20w ago - Everyday Shooter Creator Jonathan Mak announced today that Critter Crunch and Everyday Shooter are on sale today for $0.99 each.
To quote: This week, Toronto-based developers (and good friends) Queasy Games & Capy are putting their classic PSN titles on sale.
To mark this occasion, Jon decided to dust off the actual guitar used to create the tunes in Everyday Shooter and jam out the games' first track, alongside our cuddly orange friend from Critter Crunch.
Everyday Shooter & Critter Crunch may be markedly different games that took alternate paths onto the PlayStation Store, but they share a lot in common. Here's a little bit about why these games are important to their creators/teams:
Five years ago I released my first game, Everyday Shooter, in which you play through an album of musical shmups, where every sound effect is a guitar riff or note harmonizing over an all-guitar soundtrack. So as you play the game, it feels like you're jamming along with the music. Each level/song/track has a different vibe, look, sound and gameplay mechanic - kind of like how songs on an album flow through different moods.
At least that's what it is for most people. In actuality the game was built on ten years'...
33w ago - Today NIS America's Chris King shared a video confirming that Black Rock Shooter The Game comes to PSP on Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: My name is Chris King; I recently joined the awesome team here at NISA.
I'm here today to talk about Black Rock Shooter The Game, which hits PSP via PSN next Tuesday for $19.99. Shall we get started? Splendid!
Let me give you a quick rundown of the history of Black Rock Shooter. It all began as a simple illustration by renowned artist Ryohei "Huke" Fuke.
The mysterious yet appealing design of the character inspired the creation of a Black Rock Shooter song (voiced by the ever popular Hatsune Miku), an original video animation, and even an eight-episode anime series. Starting off as a single character design, it has now evolved into an explosive Japanese RPG - not bad!
Alright, let's talk story. The year is 2032 AD, and Earth has been ruthlessly assaulted by alien forces. Nineteen years of nonstop battle now threatens the very existence of humanity. The last hope for human survival is Black Rock Shooter (BRS), a heroine created solely to save planet Earth - she is the ultimate battle android.
But when she is awakened to end the battle once and for all, there are only twelve human beings left...
