177w ago - Bearded Ladies CEO Haraldur Thormundsson has announced that Landit Bandit for PS3 arrives on PSN tomorrow, July 13, 2010 and shared a video trailer.
To quote: Let us introduce ourselves and our little project Landit Bandit which will be "landing" on the PlayStation Store on July 13th for $9.99.

We never gave the low odds of success a second thought – and that's just as good as we (two programmers from the auto industry, a janitor, a liquor store salesman, an expedition leader from Nepal) would never have made a PS3 game. We've included a picture so you know what you are dealing with here.

We are five gamers that are commonly known as The Bearded Ladies. We started this tiny studio (in Trollhättan, Sweden) at the start of 2009.
At that point not a single person in the team had worked on producing a commercial game, but the past year we have been lucky enough to live every hardcore gamers wildest dream; To make our own game for PS3.
The game itself, Landit Bandit, is a homage to several old classics such as Ugh!, Moonlander, CrazyTaxi and the ever entertaining Liero. It actually started out as a tool for rehabilitation of stroke patients, but that is a longer story for another time. Here is a collage of really old stuff and programmers art for now...
So we took something that looked marginally better then the above and made an entertaining splitscreen duel that we brought to the Nordic Games Conference last year. Our tiny indie booth had quite a few players...
