Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD Leaps to PlayStation Vita Today

100°
7w ago - Oddworld Inhabitants Community Manager Wil Bunce-Edwards announced that Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD leaps to PlayStation Vita today.

To quote: Hey PlayStation fans. We're excited today to announce that later today we'll be releasing Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee HD onto PS Vita via PlayStation Store.

For those that don't know the game, Abe is back after starring in the first two Oddworld games (and this year's Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty on PlayStation 4), but now he's playing second fiddle to a new hero called Munch. Munch is a Gabbit, and the last of his kind. As their guardian angel, it's your destiny to bring his species back from the brink of extinction.

Munch and Abe's destination is Vykkers Labs, a floating pharmaceutical station running all sorts of grizzly experiments on Oddworld's cutest critters in the name of a better fabric softener. It's here they'll find not only stockpiled Mudokon eggs on sale to factory owners as cheap labor, but also the last can of Gabbiar, the disgusting delicacy that is raw Gabbit eggs.

On their way they'll infiltrate factories and bankrupt the CEOs by donating to a corrupt charity that's funding their latest Oddysee.

Munch's Oddysee carries many similar themes and mechanics to Abe's Oddysee, including the planned extinction of...

To quote: Hello! Two weeks after launching Aqua Kitty DX on PS4 and PS Vita, we have another title pumped full of retro nostalgia - although this time it goes beyond the 16-bit era, all the way back to 8-bit days!

Rock Boshers DX: Director's Cut will arrive on PS4 and PS Vita today, with cross buy and cross save support.





What's the Story?

A young Queen Victoria, bored and looking for adventure, dresses up incognito and sneaks onto a transport shell headed to Mars.

But oh no! Upon landing, all the travellers are rounded up and put to work deep underground in the Martian mines.

Why? How? Who is behind this dastardly plot?

Victoria must battle her way across Mars, and attempt to find a way home whilst collecting special food items as she goes.

Did Someone Say "Scones?"

Yes! Tea, Cheese, and Jammy Scones, the 3 most important foods for survival, are spread about each level, sometimes hidden and at other times VERY well hidden.

Good hunting is rewarded, of course, unlocking mini arcade games.

To quote: Hello, my name is Yousuf Mapara, the Creative Director of Secret Ponchos, which finally launches today on PS4 (free for [Register or Login to view links] members)! First off, our team at Switchblade Monkeys wants to thank everyone for their support and interest.

There have been plenty of articles since we announced Secret Ponchos, which detailed the game's characters, game modes and features, so we wanted to focus today's blog post on combat - or more specifically, how we drew inspiration from fighting games, team-based shooters and even MMO combat to craft our own style of combat game.





A new take on quick, twitchy combat

When we decided to make a Wild West fighting game, we knew the traditional 1v1 side view would not work for what we wanted, and that we would need to create a new style of combat outside of pre-existing genre conventions.
