- Housemarque's Mikael Haveri
has officially introduced Resogun today at Gamescom 2013, the new PS4 / PlayStation 4 exclusive game!
To quote: Hiya. We are a team of game developers from a company called Housemarque, based in Helsinki, Finland.
You might have heard of us before, especially if you're a PlayStation enthusiast: do Dead Nation, Super Stardust HD or Super Stardust Delta ring any bells?
Our first PlayStation 4 title has been in development for a while now, and getting ready for the next gen debut has been an exciting ride.
Working on the Stardust franchise over the years has been both a challenge and a privilege, but if anything it deepened our love for shoot 'em ups. Gameplay-centric games have a really special place in our hearts, and we try to keep our core audience in mind with each and every new title.
RESOGUN, our new exclusive PS4 game, adds a twist to the shooter genre, and while being very much a "spiritual successor" to the Stardust series, it doesn't shy away from remixing ideas and influences of classic arcade titles such as Defender, Data Storm, or Japanese shmups like DoDonPachi and Death Smiles.
RESOGUN is an intense, fast-pace shooter that expands our love for the genre and represents a sort of culmination of all...
