Prepare for an arcade delight with tight controls, refreshing game mechanics, cracking retro art and a terribly hip chip tune soundtrack.
14h ago - Housemarque Community Manager Tommaso De Benetti shared a video today announcing that Furmins rolls to PlayStation Vita on December 17th, 2013.
Below are the details and video trailer, to quote: Hi there, Tommaso De Benetti from Housemarque and Alexey Menshikov from Beatshapers speaking. After a minor Q&A setbacks caused by a prank our little furry friends conjured up, we are finally able to confirm the North American release of Furmins on PS Vita!
In Furmins, players will attempt to guide the eponymous and loveable creatures across fiendishly designed levels by rearranging a variety of items in real time with well-coordinated precision. Strategically placed items create pathways and physical chain reactions that guide the Furmins to a basket at the end of the level.
Wondering what happened to the Furmins Kingdom to justify a whole gaming adventure? Here's a quick overview:
The Furmins are a happy race of creatures living a happy, peaceful existence.
Things were rolling along great until the fateful day their benevolent (yet rather large)...
... King fell asleep, rolled over a river forming an impromptu dam and blocked their flow of water!

Breakquest: Extra Evolution - 500 Balls Bundle ($3.99, PSVita)
2d ago - Spry Fox Chief Creative Officer Daniel Cook made available some video footage today of the unique puzzles of Road Not Taken on PlayStation 4 below.
To quote: How might a roguelike look like if it featured a thinker and explorer, instead of a traditional warrior? If being clever was more important than being strong? That's a design challenge we've attempted to tackle with Road Not Taken.
You play a ranger in a frigid, enchanted forest, trying to save lost children. You start with a few easy-to-learn abilities. You can pick up any adjacent objects, you can carry them around, and you can throw them.
Trees, boulders, bears - they all float at your command. But you need to be careful; whenever you carry things, it costs you stamina. If you run out of stamina, you collapse face-first into the snow. No checkpoints, no reloads. It's over.
The Environment is the Threat
In Road Not Taken, both the challenge and the exciting moments come from the setting itself. You'll be intrigued by strange objects that you haven't encountered before, and whose characteristics are never fully explained. There are wild creatures running about, spiky plants that hurt you if you pick them up, and blizzards...
