23w ago - Following up on our previous update, today I-Friqiya Executive Producer Skander Djerbi has shared a new video confirming that Fuel Overdose roars into action on PSN next week!
To quote: This is Skander Djerbi, executive producer of the half-Japanese, half-gaijin indie production Fuel Overdose for PlayStation 3 on PSN. The game launches on 21st December, and a demo is available right now.
Our previous post focused on the racing gameplay pillar. Today we will talk about the 'action' aspect of the game, introducing all the cool gameplay mechanics that you can use against your opponents to attack, defend and counter-attack. Have a look in the new trailer below.
Let's start with the upgradable weapons.
• A machine gun that can be fired at 360 degrees when combined with the skidding and spinning features.
• A rocket launcher that uses a homing system that skilled drivers can avoid by suddenly changing trajectory at the very last moment.
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!!
