30w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska announced today that Atomic Ninjas is set to storm PS3 and also PlayStation Vita later this year with details below.
To quote: Hello everybody! This is Jakub from Grip Games! We're the folks behind 5-in-1 Arcade Hits, The Impossible Game and Foosball 2012. And after being locked up in our top secret underground lab (A.K.A. the garage) for some time, we're back with our newest creation - Atomic Ninjas for PS3 and PS Vita.
So, what's this all about, you ask? Atomic Ninjas is 2.5D multiplayer platformer with ninjas. You will control super-powered ninjas in frantic online matches against other players, with tonnes of charm and humor. If the Fat Princess and Crash Commando had a child, it would be Atomic Ninjas (though that idea is a bit disturbing, no?).
While the game relies on traditional jumping and shooting mechanics, you will be unable to directly kill other players. Instead, you must outsmart and outflank your opponents and kill them using various environmental hazards and obstacles, such as lava pits, laser beams, traps, moving platforms, falling crates, etc. Don't forget that these are Atomic Ninjas... something as banal as a katana between the ribs won't do the trick anymore!
Each one of the game's seven arenas is like a playfield...

31w ago - Co-creator Richard Hogg announced today that Hohokum is coming to PlayStation 4 (PS4), PS3 and PS Vita in 2014 with details below.
To quote: It is with great pleasure that we are able to announce Hohokum as a Sony Santa Monica project, coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita in 2014!
Hohokum is a collaboration between artist Richard Hogg and Honeyslug, a London-based game studio. It is a whimsical colorful game with an emphasis on playful exploration and creativity. You take on the role of a curious flying snake-like character.
A technicolor, calligraphic, worm-like, kite-like being! The way you move around the world is very expressive and kinetic and kind of mesmerizing to play.
One of the main aims for Hohokum is to create something where the usual pressures of videogames - constantly being told to do things, fearing failure and being challenged to earn progress - were all absent.
This is quite a challenge, but we're really excited about how it's coming together. There are goals and secrets to discover. There are even Trophies. But at its heart Hohokum is a playground, a place to wander about, perhaps even lose yourself in.
It is kind of awesome to be able to finally say that. We have been working away on the game for the last year, maintaining...
