Starlight Inception is Coming to PlayStation Vita in December

25w ago - Escape Hatch Entertainment President Garry M. Gaber announced today that Starlight Inception is coming to PlayStation Vita in December, 2013.

To quote: Welcome to Starlight Inception, a first-person / third-person space combat experience coming to PS Vita in December. It contains a single-player campaign, single-player Fly Patrol (tower defense), and several multiplayer options.

The inspiration for Starlight Inception was the old space sim games that we loved as kids, but with a more sophisticated, modern sensibility.

We don't intend the fighters in Starlight Inception to be retextures of World War II fighters, but something more modern and space capable. And unlike those older games, Starlight Inception was designed to allow flight from space down to planetary/lunar environments with seamless transitions.

In Starlight Inception, you're a young space fighter pilot assigned to the U.S.F. Midway (SCVN-41) one hundred years from tomorrow. In the first mission (included in the beta going live today) you'll learn about your ship, the controls, and face your first enemies.

This mission is the only one included in this early Beta, but it should give a taste for what this game looks like and feels like. The intention was to really integrate the training into the...

25w ago - Mighty Rocket Studio CEO Francois Potentier announced today alongside a video trailer that Final Exam is coming to PlayStation 3 on November 5th, 2013.

To quote: Hey, I'm Francois. I run Mighty Rocket Studio, and I'm pleased to talk about Final Exam with you. There are nine people in the studio, and this is our first game. We created the studio for this game. So we hope that you'll love it!

Final Exam is a beat'em up in which your goal is simple: survive. You were going to a class reunion. It should have been a fantastic party... and you suddenly realize that there are monsters everywhere... and they're after you.

You can choose from 4 characters that are all classic, teen archetypes. Brutal Joe is the quarterback of the group. He likes hitting and everything related to raw power.

Cassy is a street dancer (I'm sure she was a cheerleader in school), and her special attacks are dance moves. Nathan is a geek. He loves technological stuff (and he's my favorite). The last one, Sean, is the handsome guy... but the bad boy. He likes playing with firearms.





Each character has unique, powerful attacks based on their skills. Each skill has 4 power levels, up to the ultimate attack that blasts everything...
