Video: Gunship X is Coming to PlayStation Vita, Play It at E3 2014

7w ago - Gunship X Developer Serban Porumbescu shared a video today for Gunship X which is coming to PlayStation Vita, and invites PS Vita fans to play it at E3 2014!

Below are the details, to quote: I'm happy to announce that Gunship X is coming to PS Vita later this year.

If you're around E3 next week, swing on by the Sony booth to say hello and to give it a try. I love my Vita, and after six years of iOS development I'm really excited about returning to console development - and I'm glad we can do it with Gunship X.

Gunship X is a top down shooter inspired by arguably one of the most memorable parts of Call of Duty Modern Warfare (the AC-130 mission) with a sprinkle of Starship Troopers. Take control of an AC-130 Gunship to defend humanity from invading hordes.

Push back the intruders and give the humans a chance to be airlifted to safety with the awesome arsenal at your disposal. Quickly switch between weapons as they reload or cool off to ensure maximal alien carnage. Upgrade your airplanes and their weapons with your earnings and then go out on another bombing and rescue run.





We created Gunship X to provide an intense bite sized experience for players on the go. The action ramps up quickly...
 

Gunslugs on PlayStation Vita: Developer Q and A is Detailed

22w ago - Abstraction Games Creative Director Tj'ien Twijnstra shared a Gunslugs PlayStation Vita Developer Q and A with PS Vita fans below today!

To quote: Hey everyone! I'm extremely excited that Gunslugs is finally coming to its natural home, PS Vita, on February 18th. To celebrate the launch, we're offering a 20% discount for all PlayStation Plus members during the first week, so don't miss out!

For the occasion, I figured I'd give you guys a sneak peek at the porting process of Gunslugs; or as we like to call it, an "adaptation" process.

As I have no technical skills whatsoever, I interviewed Rutger Janssen, one of our elite programmers, and Ralph Egas, CEO and [Register or Login to view links] Mastermind. Both developers were involved with the Gunslugs adaptation.

Tj'ien Twijnstra: Rutger, could you tell us a bit about the adaptation process? How does something like that work?

Rutger Janssen: After we determined the base version, the first step is to strip the game code of all the platform specific functions; only the game code remains. Then we take it through our in-house developed tool chain so the basic language is converted from Objective C to C++. Unfortunately, tools are never perfect, so here and there I needed to manually...

24w ago - Orangepixel's Pascal Bestebroer announced today that their videogames are coming to PS Vita starting with Gunslugs.

Below are the details, to quote: I'm Pascal Bestebroer, the indie developer known as [Register or Login to view links].

I've been developing games since 2004, which have appeared on older mobile platforms like J2ME, as well as newer ones like Android and iOS. That said, it's likely you don't know Orangepixel... yet!

With the help of the guys at [Register or Login to view links], I hope to change that and make my games more known to new audiences, starting with PlayStation gamers. So, Gunslugs will be the first of the Orangepixel titles to hopefully land a spot on your PS Vita this month!

As I mentioned above, I've been creating games since 2004, and all the Orangepixel games have a few key elements in common:

First, they feel, look and sound "retro." This is a very commonly used term these days, but don't judge the games because they looks retro - I also try to imbue my games with newer tricks, gameplay concepts and even some triple-A ideas, bringing old-school style games to a more modern audience.

The final element that all Orangepixel games share, is that they are hard. Not brutal, and...

48w ago - Abstraction Games Creative Director Tj'ien Twijnstra confirmed today that Gunslugs is coming soon to PS Vita.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone, I'm Tj'ien, creative director at [Register or Login to view links], and I'm more than excited to tell you that we'll be bringing Orange Pixel's highly addictive, retro-inspired, side-scrolling roguelike Gunslugs to PS Vita.

We came into contact with Gunslugs' creator Pascal Bestebroer - "indie game developer extraordinaire" - through the nice people at Sony Computer Entertainment, who suggested he get in touch with us after they were amazed by the work we did on Hotline Miami for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

We were tremendously honored to be referred by Sony and we were thrilled to be working with Pascal as he has created so many great, retro-inspired gems, that we felt we had no other choice than to jump onboard straightaway.

After we had worked on Knytt Underground and Hotline Miami, we're all really excited about the tremendous potential of the PS Vita and its unique input systems.

But the more traditional, natural feeling of the physical buttons, combined with the amazing OLED display, make the idea of bringing Gunslugs over a no-brainer from our perspective. In fact,...

70w ago - Today Laurent Mercure at Frima Studio has announced alongside a video trailer that Holy Guns! Nun Attack is coming to PS Vita tomorrow.

Below are the details, as follows: We're proud to be bringing the beloved gun-wielding nuns from our hit mobile game Nun Attack to PlayStation Vita. Eons have passed since the power-thirsty Fallen Nun took over the mortal world, spawning evil across the land.

In a world where evil is taking over and prayers are no longer answered, there is only one type of divine intervention left, and it's armed to the teeth!

In this epic tactical action game, intuitive touch-screen controls direct your holy squad through fast-paced combat while they unleash a fury of biblical proportions. Lead Eva the leader, Rosy the slayer, Olga the tank and Mandy the healer to defeat the Fallen Nun and restore balance to the world.

Nun Attack for PS Vita is not a simple port; we've adapted the game to provide a great experience on the handheld. We've upgraded the graphics a notch, and entirely redesigned the difficulty of the levels since we've removed all of the micro-transaction mechanics.





Nun Attack PS Vita features:

• Challenging tactical action and reflexive...
