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'...
220w ago - Capy's Creative Director Kris Piotrowski has priced and dated Critter Crunch today, which is heading to PSN on October 8, 2009 for $6.99.
To quote: Kris from Capy here, signing in just to drop a quick little announcement bomb on all y'all brains:
Just in case you didn't actually watch on the video above, here's what you missed:
CRITTER CRUNCH IS COMING TO A NORTH AMERICAN PLAYSTATION 3 NEAR YOU ON OCTOBER 8TH, AKA "THE DAY OF THE CRUNCH" AKA "CRITTER HOUR" AKA "BIGGS' BIG BBQ BASH."
And it's $6.99. SIX DOLLARS AND NINETY-NINE CENTS.
Why? Because we love you, and because we care. And it let us do that animated switcharoo-thing with the "9″ transforming into the "6″ after Biggs peels the price, which we think worked out really well.
Anyway, let me break it down for you in equation form:
(Biggs + Smalls + Critter Crunch) x (October 8th (You - 6.99)) = AWESOME FUN PUZZLE PARTY.
Stay tuned for lots more info on the PlayStation Blog and on www.crittercrunch.com as we approach October 8th.
227w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a PlayStation Eye Chat video today on Critter Crunch for PSN.
To quote: When you last saw Critter Crunch, it was probably at E3 when Capybara's Nathan Vella walked us through the game's basics on the show floor.
Well Nathan is back, along with fellow Capy compadre Kris Piotrowski, to talk much more in-depth about Critter Crunch. Specifically, the duo describes the puzzle game's versus/co-op modes and their power-ups, how the foodchain mechanic works and the robust single-player adventure more. Plus, there's nice chunk of in-game footage included in the video.
And yes, there's plenty more barf, too. Strategic, rainbow-colored barf, if you will.
236w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has posted a new E3 2009 Critter Crunch for PSN today on the PlayStation Blog.
To quote: You saw Critter Crunch in a post a few weeks back, marking the historic debut of technicolor barf to PSN.
So we tracked down cofounder and President of Capy, Nathan Vella, at E3 2009. Here, Nathan talks us through Critter Crunch and how it plays, going in-depth with competitive and co-op multiplayer modes and more.
Everyone who played it on the show floor seemed to enjoy it, and we're stoked to show off more of Critter Crunch in the near future, with Nathan promising to bring it back to the Blog very soon.
