24w ago - Beatshapers Founder and CEO Alexey Menshikov unveiled ZRun on PS Vita today, inviting fans to run to survive this Summer!
To quote: Hey, it's Alexey from Beatshapers! I'm here to present our new game from E3 2013, ZRun. This is a third-person beat-'em-up game, coming this summer to PS Vita.
The player assumes the role of a young, vacationing college student, who finds himself in the middle of an outbreak. He's not a hero; he just wants to survive and escape this nightmare.
• Non-stop running action. Run and avoid obstacles - hitting obstacles hurts you and makes you an easy target for zombies.
• Evade or attack zombies - if they attack you, you'll get hurt and die.
• Watch your stamina - every action costs some. If a player fights too much, he may end up not having enough stamina to jump over an obstacle when needed.
• Use objects as weapons - bats, tubes, machetes, guitars, swords, axes, etc.
• Use firearms (guns, shotguns, automatic rifles) to get rid of zombies quickly and effectively – but watch your ammo.
• Multiple characters, each with their own distinct melee attack. • It's not shown in the trailer, but the current hero has a special side-kick which is handy for longer distances.
27w ago - Subatomic Studios Marketing & Strategy Manager Alec Shobin has officially announced that Fieldrunners 2: Acclaimed Tower Defense will be hitting PS Vita this Summer.
To quote: Are you ready to defend the world? Fieldrunners 2, the "king of tower defense," storms onto PS Vita this summer.
Everyone at Subatomic Studios is thrilled about launching Fieldrunners 2 on PS Vita! When we brought the original Fieldrunners to PSP back in 2009, we were completely overwhelmed by how much enthusiasm and support you all showed for our game. You folks are awesome, Sony rocks, and that's why we're bringing the biggest tower defense game ever to PS Vita this summer.
In Fieldrunners 2, our aim was to make everything bigger and better, while still respecting our fans as tower defense connoisseurs. We started by building a new game engine, which allows each and every enemy to carve their own unique path through the battlefield.
Drop a tower in front of them? Their relentless waves wrap right around it. Use bridges and tunnels to create a killer choke point? Enemies get caught up in a huge traffic jam.
How will you ever defend yourself against these legions of baddies? With over 25 devious new towers, those fieldrunners don't...
34w ago - Sega Senior Digital Brand Manager Mai Kawaguchi announced today alongside a video that Disney's Castle of Illusion is coming to PSN this Summer with details below.
To quote: Mickey Mouse is returning to star in Castle of Illusion, a fantastical HD reimagining of the classic Sega Genesis game.
The game is scheduled to release in summer of 2013. We know that Castle of Illusion has a special place in many gamers' hearts. Sega studios Australia is putting lots of care into this new 2D/3D game.
Our plan is to deliver a fully reimagined experience that takes advantage of the power of PS3 with all new graphics and new adventures, while at the same time making sure that the game maintains the Disney magic that the original Castle of Illusion captured in 1990.
We have also been working very closely with the director of the original game, who is now at Disney Interactive. We are having a blast working with her to realize many of the elements that were intended for the original game, but couldn't be achieved until now due to the technical limitations of previous generation consoles.
If you have played the original game, you will also see that we have kept intact many of the major iconic...
36w ago - Curve Studios Lead Designer Sam Robinson has announced today that Stealth Bstard sneaks onto both PS3 and PS Vita video game platforms this Summer.
To qyote: Hello! I am utterly overjoyed to bring you news that Stealth Bstard, our outrageously devious stealth-puzzle platformer, will be sneaking its way on to PS3 and PS Vita this Summer!
If you've not yet heard of Stealth Bstard, it's our deadly stealth platform game with a fast paced twist! Following your birth in a cloning lab, you find yourself trapped in a vast and overwhelming network of dastardly chambers, replete with vicious, yet hilarious, booby traps and deranged robots!
Your task is simple; stay out of sight and get to the exit. Persevere to the bitter end and you might just discover the secrets of this vicious world!
We like to look at Stealth Bstard as stealth gaming without the waiting. Gone are the days of hanging around in a locker or a conveniently-placed human-sized crate! The mechanical foes of our stealth world are much less forgiving, instantly eviscerating you or your fellow captives on sight!
The game boasts brilliantly crisp visuals, an abundance of character, tight controls and a steady difficulty curve that gradually ramps up...
