30w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska announced today that Atomic Ninjas is set to storm PS3 and also PlayStation Vita later this year with details below.
To quote: Hello everybody! This is Jakub from Grip Games! We're the folks behind 5-in-1 Arcade Hits, The Impossible Game and Foosball 2012. And after being locked up in our top secret underground lab (A.K.A. the garage) for some time, we're back with our newest creation - Atomic Ninjas for PS3 and PS Vita.
So, what's this all about, you ask? Atomic Ninjas is 2.5D multiplayer platformer with ninjas. You will control super-powered ninjas in frantic online matches against other players, with tonnes of charm and humor. If the Fat Princess and Crash Commando had a child, it would be Atomic Ninjas (though that idea is a bit disturbing, no?).
While the game relies on traditional jumping and shooting mechanics, you will be unable to directly kill other players. Instead, you must outsmart and outflank your opponents and kill them using various environmental hazards and obstacles, such as lava pits, laser beams, traps, moving platforms, falling crates, etc. Don't forget that these are Atomic Ninjas... something as banal as a katana between the ribs won't do the trick anymore!
Each one of the game's seven arenas is like a playfield...

30w ago - Lucid Games Founder Nick Davies announced today alongside a video that Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery camps out on PS Vita today.
To quote: Today we're launching Episode 1 of Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery on PS Vita for just $2.99, bringing the quirky adventures of title character Jacob in the most memorable summer of his life at Camp Eagle Feather.
Eagle Feather's counselors aren't the sensible, parental figures you'd want supervising a camp filled with unruly kids. In fact, the counselors have developed a suspicious fixation, making sure every camper is well fed... extremely well fed.
Let's meet some of the characters you'll run into along the way:
• Mr. Grimmel, head of Physical Education - For someone who appears to have a pathological hatred for kids, working at a summer camp doesn't exactly seem like the perfect career choice for Mr. Grimmel. Cross him at your own peril...
• Mr. Thagorous, head of Science - What's going on inside the science lab at Camp Eagle Feather? It all seems a little more dangerous than your typical school chemistry lab.
• Mr. Hans, Groundsman - He seems friendly enough but he's obsessed with the gophers digging up his well-maintained grounds, so obsessed in fact, he's taking drastic measures to...
30w 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.
Coconut Dodge came out at the turn of the decade and won plaudits and even mentions in Kotaku and IGN. It opened doors which we then pushed open even further with Velocity - which was inspired by many of the mechanics in Coconut Dodge. Unusually the game was popular with both guys and girls -...

It is the year 2034. Beneath the ruins of post-apocalyptic Moscow, in the tunnels of the Metro, the remnants of mankind are besieged by deadly threats from outside - and within.
