Video: Sony Announces EscapeVektor Launches on PS Vita Tuesday

65w ago - Nnooo Creative Director Nic Watt has announced today on Sony's blog alongside a video trailer that EscapeVektor launches on the PS Vita handheld console this Tuesday.

Below are the details, to quote: We're happy to bring you information about escapeVektor, a new game coming to PlayStation Vita from Australian independent developer Nnooo.

Vektor is trapped inside your CPU and needs your help to escape! Each node (level) consists of a series of interconnected lines which form cells. These are claimed as Vektor moves along them.

Claiming all of the cells in a node unlocks the exit to the next node, bringing Vektor closer to his escape. Watch out because the CPU sets up obstacles and sends out its army to destroy him.

There are four main abilities to unlock and use in escapeVektor.

Detonate

This ability allows you to destroy enemies which get too close. If you can escape a node without detonating you'll earn a star! Getting stars on all the nodes is going to be tricky.

Boost

Boost allows you to travel much faster than normal for short periods of time.

Super Boost

This is a much faster version of boost which drains boost energy even quicker!!

Sony Announces Munch's Oddysee HD Officially Hits PSN Today

69w ago - Just Add Water CEO Stewart Gilray has announced that Munch's Oddysee HD officially hits PSN today!

Below are the details, to quote: Munch the Gabbit is now in HD! The team at Just Add Water, with help from the programming staff at Four Door Lemon, worked hard over the last 18 months to bring you an updated version of Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee on PS3.

Gamers met the crazy planet of Oddworld back on the original PlayStation, with Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exoddus quickly becoming classics.

If you played those games, you'll remember the reluctant hero's destiny to rescue his fellow Mudokons from corporate slavery at the hands of Glukkon Companies Rupture Farms and SoulStorm Brewery.

Munch first burst onto our screens in 2002 (on that other console that sounds like egg-fox), following in the footsteps of the now-classic Abe games. Another reluctant hero, the diminutive Munch, is the last of his kind.

His mission: To escape from the evil Vykkers Labs, save all the lab animals and liberate a can of Gabbiar, using the eggs to get his species going again. All with the help of Abe, of course!

We have no doubt that one look at these screenshots will bring all those childhood memories rushing back. Just don't cry on...

Digital Reality Announces Black Knight Sword Charges to PSN Today

71w ago - Digital Reality Product Services Manager Gergely Szilagyi has announced that Black Knight Sword charges onto PSN today!

Below are the details, to quote: Fighting with the strength of many men, The Black Knight must battle through a dark and unusual fairy tale world to rid it of an unexpected evil.

Black Knight Sword is an unusual game for unusual gamers. The idea is to send ourselves back to the 90's, lock the door, forget the outer world and enjoy the pure gameplay.

This traditional side-scrolling action game will provide us with uncountable trials, failures and the joy of beating the unbeatable. It is not hard to lay back on the couch and get lost in the world of the Black Knight.

Suda51 and Grasshopper Manufacture did a lot with the look and feel of the game. If you still want more, turn up the speakers and be enchanted by Akira Yamaoka's composing and sound design.

Not many contemporary titles have such a unique world like Black Knight Sword. We are sitting in a theatre and living the fairy tale of the Black Knight, fighting his battles, suffering from his wounds... and surely rejoicing in his victory.

Wherever we are, whatever we face, we'll repeatedly ask one question: "What...

71w ago - Commercial Director at D3T Ltd Jaime Campbell has shared a video today announcing that Lemmings is back on PlayStation Mobile with details below.

To quote: When d3t was approached to make Lemmings for PlayStation Mobile, the initial feeling of excitement was quickly superseded by the realisation that a lot of people would have their eyes on our results.

At d3t, we always go the extra mile to deliver the best possible games, so we knew we were the right people for the job. But it's not every day you get asked to work on a title with a name that resonates with multiple generations of gamers who have enjoyed playing existing versions of the game on numerous gaming systems since it was first published by Psygnosis for the Commodore Amiga in 1991.

We are delighted that Lemmings for PlayStation Mobile looks great, performs really well on all of the certified devices and most importantly, faithfully brings the Lemmings experience to a whole new platform for a new generation of gamers, who can enjoy the classic game for the first time ever with intuitive touch screen control. It really feels like this game was made for it!

Take a look for yourself in this short movie!
