34w ago - Laughing Jackal Senior Producer Al Evans announced today that Flame Over on PS Vita will be blazing a trail in 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: I€m Al, Senior Producer at Laughing Jackal, and I€m here to tell you about our new PS Vita game, Flame Over.

Flame Over is a fast-paced, action-packed fire-fighting roguelike, featuring randomly generated levels and a complex fire simulation that radiates, jumps between objects, consumes fuel and destroys its environment in real time.

The player€s objective is simple: guide a fire-fighter through the 16 floors of Infernal Industries€ skyscraping HQ, exploring your environment, seeking out loot, secrets and power ups and hunting down blazes against the clock.

All levels in Flame Over are fully destructible and feature different themes, many room types, secret items and hidden levels, environmental hazards and tons of lovely loot and power ups. Nom nom nom!

A fire-fighting game needs a legendary hero, so we bring you Blaze Carruthers, London€s foremost fire-fighting hero. The only thing bigger than Blaze€s heart is his luxuriant moustache, and NO fire is gonna singe its tips!

The idea for Flame Over was born during a fire training day last year. I was watching a video about the chemistry of...
