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....
