22w ago - General Manager of RingZero Game Studio Franck Blaevoet has announced that their addictive puzzler Burn the Rope singes PlayStation Vita consoles beginning today!
To quote: We are happy to announce the release of Burn the Rope for PS Vita. Burn the Rope is an game where you - as the title implies - must burn as much rope as possible in each level.
To start burning the rope you simply tap PS Vita's front touchscreen wherever there is rope. Once the rope starts burning, you control the direction of the flame by rotating the screen.
The flame always burns up and it will burn out if it runs out of rope. The speed at which the flame travels along the rope is determined by the angle of the rope. You can also control the flame using the touch screen, by rotating the PS Vita or you can use the rear touchpad if you don't want your fingers to block the view.
In addition, you can pinch on the rear touchpad to zoom in or zoom out. This can help if you have really big fingers or are all thumbs. Oh, it also helps if you want to be more precise in starting the flame.
As you progress through the levels, you will encounter bugs crawling along the rope, different flame colors, and different colors of rope. Different bugs react differently to the flame: For instance, the...

23w ago - Creative Director Nicklas Nygren at Nifflas' Games revealed that Knytt Underground rolls to both PlayStation 3 and PS Vita consoles today complete with a video trailer below.
To quote: I've always wanted to develop a game that is heavily-story based, but I've always waited to do it until I had a story I really want to tell; something personal and different.
Problem is, I can't just decide to come up with such a story whenever I want. It's an unusual and mysterious process and it kind of just... happens. Knytt Underground is the result of this process. Oh, and it's also a pretty sweet exploration platform game.
Knytt Underground tells a quirky and strange tale that connects to various things in my own life. It's set in the future, hundreds of years after the humans disappeared from the planet. Sprites, fairies and various other lifeforms roam tunnels underground.
They are curious about their origin and the meaning of life, and to find those answers they try to understand the ones who had obviously figured it out: the humans.
One organization is devoted to understanding our science and language. They have successfully decoded that the letter J symbolizes a hook and O the full moon. Another group tries to combine the truths of our different religions....
23w ago - Nnooo Creative Director Nic Watt has shared a video today spotlighting EscapeVektor, which makes a break for PlayStation Vita next week!
Below are the details, to quote: We're happy to bring you information about escapeVektor, a new game coming to PlayStation Vita from Australian independent developer Nnooo.
The concept is simple: Vektor is trapped inside your CPU and needs your help to escape! Each node (level) consists of a series of interconnected lines which form cells.
These are claimed as Vektor moves along them. Claiming all of the cells in a node unlocks the exit to the next node, bringing Vektor closer to his escape. Watch out because the CPU sets up obstacles and sends out its army to destroy him.
There are four main abilities to unlock and use in escapeVektor.
• Detonate: This ability allows you to destroy enemies which get too close. If you can escape a node without detonating you'll earn a star! Getting stars on all the nodes is going to be tricky.
• Boost: Boost allows you to travel much faster than normal for short periods of time.
• Super Boost: This is a much faster version of boost which drains boost energy even quicker!!
