24 Caret Games: Retro / Grade's Backwards Battle Begins Today

50°
86w ago - 24 Caret Games Co-founder Matt Gilgenbach announced that Retro / Grade's backwards battle officially begins today!

From the official announcement, to quote: It's been a long journey since our first post about Retro/Grade over three years ago.

We've worked very hard creating the best game we possibly can since then - if you saw the three year old screenshots, you'll notice that it's barely recognizable as the polished product you see today.

Besides all the visual polish we added - like jaw-dropping effects and full HD 1080p rendering at 60 frames-per-second with anti-aliasing - we've added a ton of content.

Although we have a campaign mode, challenge mode is really the star of Retro/Grade. It's where the real meat of the game lies. In challenge mode, you are presented with a galaxy map, and you go through playing various challenges that are based on the campaign levels, but with various twists and rule changes.

For example, in some of the challenges, the music is sped up, which naturally makes completing the level more difficult. We also have challenges that require you to reach certain score targets, have trickier patterns, and plenty more! There are 130 challenges spanning a map filled with secret paths, warps, and rewards.

What kind of...

88w ago - Creative Director Vander Caballero at Minority has posted up a video today announcing that the Papo and Yo adventure begins on PSN next week.

To quote: It's hard to believe that Papo & Yo is so close to launch!

This story has been in my heart for a long time, but thanks to the hard work of the whole team at Minority you all will finally be able to experience it next Tuesday, August 14th.

To celebrate the upcoming launch, we wanted to share something special with all of you. Although we are a small indie studio, we are lucky to have been able to work with the experienced filmmakers at Rezolution Pictures and talented Montreal director Alfonso Maiorana.

They have created an amazing cinematic launch trailer for our game that not only shows the start of Quico's story, but also the inspiration behind Papo & Yo's fantastic world. We hope you like it!

Since we are part of Sony's PSN PLAY promotion this year, PlayStation Plus members can pre-order Papo & Yo starting today for $11.99, and non-subscribers can do the same for $14.99.





You can also get part of that money back if you buy some of the other wonderful PSN PLAY titles from our fellow...
