6d ago - Futurlab Programmer Robin Jubber confirmed today that Coconut Dodge Revitalised is coming soon to PlayStation Vita with details below.
To quote: If you've been noticing isn't a huge game in coding terms - it isn't even as big as the code for Velocity's menu system - but making it was fun and everybody who played the test versions enjoyed it.
In the week before release we were still cramming in extra modes and polishing gameplay - you do that when something is dear to you and you're working as part of a small team.
Without the ease of development on a fixed system, the mature Sony libraries and their technical support - not to mention somewhere to actually release the game (the Minis platform) - Coconut Dodge would never have been made and FuturLab would be yet another brief blip in the gaming landscape of failed software devs.
Or even worse James would have returned to making Flash games and I'd still be dancing naked for coins down the docks.

The facial reaction shots are intercut with looks at an already-announced PS4 game - Infamous: Second Son, in case it's not clear - and hardware but the images and video in those segments are readily available all over the Web. And the supposed hardware could be one of the many fan-made renders that are jostling for attention on the Internet.
Granted, this could be the work of MOFILM, the firm that Sony recently hired to handle crowd-sourced advertising. As good as it looks, it almost certainly be the work of a dedicated fan looking to capitalize on the excitement leading...
