We're at E3 this week showing some of the games, directly on PS3 hardware. As part of the E3 fanfare, we want to talk about some of the new features we've been working on.
To start with, let's talk about Super Pole Riders, which has seen a radical overhaul since the free browser version. Below you can see one of the new arenas, illustrated by Bennett himself.
You'll note that there are four players there. The game now supports 1v1 and 2v2. Two-on-two is especially crazy, with poles flying everywhere. We're also thrilled with the new control scheme. It feels nicely direct to rotate your pole using the analog stick.
Hokra, too, will feature some graphical updates and a bunch of new features and arenas. The new arena layouts - which feature walls, different...
