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...
27w ago - Zoink's Klaus Lyngeled announced today that Stick It to The Man will be hitting both PS Vita and PS3 this year.
To quote: Hi, my name is Klaus Lyngeled and I am running a small game studio called Zoink! in Sweden. We have been working on something really special and I am so happy I can finally announce our game: Stick It to The Man!
In short, it's a mind-reading game set in a paper and sticker universe. I know... that sounds insane, but you'll understand once you watch our announcement trailer.
As you may have noticed, it's a mix of platforming and adventure games.
The story is about this poor guy called Ray, who ends up in coma and wakes up with a 16-foot pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his head. The arm gives him the power to actually listen to anyone's thoughts, which he hears as an inner monologue.
But that's not all – he can also put thoughts into people's heads, change what they think about, and even pull objects out from peoples thoughts.
As you can imagine, this power is pretty useful. Soon enough, Ray finds himself being chased down by strange agents and a mysterious character called The Man.
The game has over 100 characters and each character...
27w ago - Drinkbox Studios Production Assistant Matthew Johns announced today that new Guacamelee costumes and both PS3 trophies and PS Vita trophies arrive tomorrow.
To quote: It's been two months since Guacamelee launched on PS3 and PS Vita. Thousands of you have uppercutted, slammed, and derped your way through the evil forces of Calaca onto our leaderboards.
Hopefully the blisters on your thumbs have healed enough so you can enjoy the DLC we're releasing tomorrow. New costumes! New Trophies! And at only $1.99, you could buy it twice and it's still cheaper than your favorite premium coffee...
First up: the Identity Swap costumes, starring Juanita or Tostado! (Tostado is PS3 only.)
Juanita wears blue tights held up by a championship belt, and a tank top with a flaming, flying heart logo on it. Tostado (not to be confused with Tostada), wears matching pink shpants and luchador mask, and has dead bandaged-up blue skin.
These two deal extra damage with punches/kicks, but have weaker throws. You'll get a new 'Heroine-ism' trophy when you defeat Calaca with Juanita.
Have you ever wanted to run around wearing a chicken...
