WeirdBeard Games: 99 Bricks Wizard Academy Coming to PS Vita

50°
19w ago - WeirdBeard Games developer Joram Rafalowicz announced today that 99 Bricks Wizard Academy is coming to PS Vita with details below.

To quote: Hello, we are [Register or Login to view links], a five-man indie studio from Amsterdam in the Netherlands. We're happy to finally introduce ourselves, though we've been around for almost seven years now.

When we started our studio we had a dream of making games people want to play, and bringing those games to consoles - but we didn't want to be a starve-up.

So we spent our time making all kinds of games for all kinds of clients while working on our own concepts. We're very proud to be able to pay our three full time employees a good salary and still have a roof over our own head.

Doing it our own way for almost seven years may seem like a long time, but that makes it even sweeter that our dream is coming to reality. We're super excited to announce that we're bringing 99 Bricks Wizard Academy to PS Vita!

99 Bricks Wizard Academy is a magical physics tower building game. The tetromino bricks are not used to create and clear lines, but as building blocks. You have to stack them with care otherwise your construction will crumble.

We love using a twist on a well-known concept to create new experiences....
