23w ago - Double Eleven Limited Chief Operating Officer Mark South announced today that PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD is coming to PS Vita.
Below are the details, to quote: Double Eleven, Ltd been entrusted with the keys to the kingdom for classic series such as LittleBigPlanet and Limbo.
For us, PixelJunk Monsters sits alongside those hallowed classics. In designing PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD for PS Vita, we wanted to take the fabulous PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe and make it an even better experience.
We worked closely with Q-Games to get it right, and then chose the name "Ultimate HD" at the end of development. We hope that's what we have created!
We've been big fans of Monsters and the other PixelJunk games for some time; the sharp, colorful graphics and addictive gameplay had us hooked. Monsters is one of those games that is super casual, but incredibly difficult at the same time: a quality which made us - and many others - keep coming back for more.
The tower defense premise is very familiar, but Monsters' effortless execution sets it apart from other games in the genre. We realized that if Monsters were remade today, it would still stand out amongst other games in the genre.
So we set out to make the definitive version of PixelJunk Monsters...
31w ago - Frima Studio's Laurent Mercure posted up a video announcing that Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge invades PSN today.
Below are the details, to quote: We are proud to announce that Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge is launching on PlayStation Store today. Since it's Cross-Play and Cross-Buy, you'll get both PS Vita and PlayStation 3 versions for just $9.99. PlayStation Plus members in the US can pick it up for free!
Here's a quick recap, in case you didn't read our earlier posts. Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge is a real-time strategy game. However, it's not your classic RTS with resource gathering, base building and tech-tree climbing.
No, it's pure, unadulterated tactical zombie assault! You've got two zombie packs, a mobile base and a monster at your beck and call, each controlled using a different symbol button on the controller.
In multiplayer mode, both teams start out at the opposite ends of the map. As they move across town toward an inevitable confrontation, they capture buildings that grant diverse benefits. The more buildings you take, the more zombies you have and the more special zombies you unlock.
Trophy hunters out there will be happy to hear that Zombie Tycoon...
