Ludometrics Announces Bodycheck is Coming to PlayStation Vita

50°
35w ago - Ludometrics Founder David Thomson announced today that Bodycheck is coming to PlayStation Vita!

To quote: Hiya. I'm David, the de-facto Chief Person at Ludometrics, based in Glasgow, Scotland. The team here has been around for a long time in various forms, prior to teaming up again at Ludometrics; we originally made games for mobile phones way back last century, if you can imagine that.

Today, though, I'm here to tell you about Bodycheck, a game I've been waiting to make for quite a long time. Sometimes, as it's said, all you need is a little patience.

Bodycheck is a sports game for people who don't necessarily like sports. Personally, I'm a fan of sports. I can sports with the best of them. But I find most sports games of recent years lack a certain something-something. Perhaps they're not physical enough, or they manage not to capture the chaos of play, or sometimes they're just a bit ponderous.

Bodycheck will (hopefully) contain that certain something-something. I love reading about the origins of football in the Middle Ages, with 500 players per team and matches lasting days - and the ball was actually a pig's head.

We won't have that many players per team in the game, and matches will be a tad shorter, but punching, scratching, and general unnecessary roughness...
 

Halfbrick Announces Age of Zombies is Out Today on PS Vita

36w ago - Halfbrick Community Coordinator James Schultz announced that Age of Zombies is out today on PS Vita.

Below are the details, to quote: Hey guys, James here from Halfbrick. I hope you're feeling fresh and re-energized for the year ahead!

Today, we're pleased to announce the U.S. launch of Age of Zombies for PS Vita. We're super excited about this, and I think you'll agree that BlitWorks has done an incredible job taking Age of Zombies to a whole new level of awesomeness on PS Vita.

It's been almost four years since Age of Zombies was first released as a PS Mini, but despite a wealth of improvements and updates, there's always been one thing missing: physical twin stick controls. That all changed with the launch of PS Vita, and we've finally found the perfect device to capture the sheer joys of blasting zombies on the go.

So, what's the game all about? Glad you asked! Age of Zombies was the first game to star wise-cracking hero Barry Steakfries, who many of you will know as the main character from Monster Dash and Jetpack Joyride. It's a crazy, hilarious, and over-the-top adventure. And it features time travel, romance, and a whole lot more.

The evil Professor Brains has sent hordes of undead to the farthest reaches of time, and it's up to you to save the day....
 

Video: Toukiden: The Age of Demons Hits PS Vita Next Month

36w ago - Tecmo Koei Europe Community Manager Chin Soon Sun posted up a video today announcing that Toukiden: The Age of Demons hits PS Vita next month.

To quote: Hello, hello! It's been a while. Today, I would like to talk about our upcoming title Toukiden: The Age of Demons for PS Vita. Having sold half a million copies in Japan, it's coming to North America on February 11th, 2014.

Set against a backdrop inspired by various historical periods of Japan, Toukiden tells the tale of humanity's last stand for survival.

When monstrous demons (Oni) of varying strength and size invaded the world through cracks in space and time and started attacking humans, the only opposition came from the Slayers: a caste that has always secretly protected mankind from the demons' murderous intent.





The player character (you!)

Eight years after the Oni first appeared, a brave young Slayer embarks on a journey to thin the numbers of the enemy and help humanity survive. You take on the role of this young warrior and can fully customize their appearance, weapons and armor, and form a group of hunters to take down the destructive Oni.

The Slayers organization has secretly...

Energy Hook is Coming to PS4 and PlayStation Vita in 2014

50°
36w ago - To quote: Chief Scientist Jamie Fristrom at Happion Laboratories announced today that Energy Hook is coming to both PS4 and PlayStation Vita platforms in 2014.

To quote: Being an independent game developer sure has been a bumpy ride. After making Spider-Man 2, I quit my sweet gig at Activision to see if I could make games my own way, on my own terms.

I've been through a lot since then! I founded a company with a friend. We built it up, had several employees, health insurance, and everything only to see it come crashing down.

So now I'm on my own again, starting over from scratch. But maybe things are turning around? By revisiting the coolest thing I've ever done - swinging game mechanics - and launching an unorthodox Kickstarter for the game, called Energy Hook, my new company Happion Labs seems to be on an upward trajectory.

And the latest piece of good news: I'm going to be able to bring Energy Hook to PS4 and PS Vita!

So, what's Energy Hook? Well, imagine a 3D swinging game like Spider-Man 2 had a love child with "points-for-style" game SSX. You swing from rooftop to rooftop, pull off mid-air tricks, run along walls, and rack up points and energy for doing it. Because: it's the future.

And that's what the extreme sports of the future look like....
