The totalitarian Penguin regime has oppressed Albatropolis for too long, but who can bring it down? Maybe Hardboiled Chicken? Oh Please... Of course, Hardboiled Chicken!
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken takes you on a cinematic platform adventure through Albatropolis as you hunt down the Penguin's corrupt leader, Putzki. Along the way, you'll have to kill many penguins, solve puzzles, incite revolution, and maybe possibly pilot a few jetpacks.
We've had a lot of fun putting Rocketbirds on the PS3. The available power has allowed us to vastly improve on the controls, visuals, and gameplay over the first game. For the visuals, you can look forward to expressive characters and rich, detailed environments. All running at 60fps and 720p.
There's even an optional stereoscopic 3D mode that also runs at the full 60fps, 720p. This may sound pretty pointless for...
125w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has posted up a video trailer today announcing that One Epic Game is hitting PSN tomorrow.
To quote: My name is Jakub from Grip Games, the folks who gave you MiniSquadron and 5-in-1 Arcade Hits, and I'd like to tell you about our next project - One Epic Game, which is now being released via PlayStation Store tomorrow.
All of gaming's most notorious stereotypes finally make an appearance in one epic game - aliens, zombies, fantasy, World War II and nuclear wasteland. One Epic Game puts you in the shoes of Alpha Dog, another muscular, one dimensional action hero with the task to negotiate with the enemies the only way they understand - a bullet in the brain!
As you have probably guessed by now, everything about One Epic Game is intentionally over-the-top. The name, the action, the main hero, humour... One Epic Game is a parody of all the gaming stereotypes we see in almost every action game. But it does not stop only with games, as you'll see us pay homage to some popular movies and much more.
