Critter Crunch Out Today on PSN! OM NOM NOM NOM!

Hello friends!

This is it! Today is the day! Critter Crunch is out in North America! So this afternoon, turn on your PlayStation 3, log on to the PlayStation Store, and download it! It’s only $6.99!

Until then, check out our launch trailer entitled “A Barf In The Night”:

For those of you unfamiliar with Capy’s hand-animated 60 frames-per-second arcade-puzzle extravaganza, here’s a quick recap:

  • Crazy Single Player Modes: Adventure, Puzzle, Challenge and Survival
  • Crazy Multiplayer Modes: Versus and Co-Op (offline and online via the Playstation Network)
  • Crazy Trophies!
  • Barf!
  • Critter Crunch New Screen


    And just in case you missed the first batch of reviews, here are a couple of handy links to help you get up to speed with the word on the street:

    Destructoid says:

    “With Critter Crunch, Capybara has designed one of the most original and endearing titles the puzzle genre has seen in years…With solid gameplay mechanics and the iconic character designs of Biggs and company, it’s a game that belongs in any puzzle fan’s digital library.”

    IGN says:

    “It sets a new standard for graphics in the genre and is simply one of the best looking games on PSN. Luckily, it also has the gameplay to back up the looks. No puzzle fan should miss this. Even if you don’t consider yourself a fan of the genre, you’ll likely find Biggs’ charm hard to resist.”

    And for those of you that just ADORE rainbow-colored spew, here’s another trailer just for kicks:

    Yikes! That’s a whole lot of Critter Crunch up in this post. Go forth, Critter Crunch fans, and multiply.

    See you online!

Can’t wait! I’m wondering if we’ll see some dlc for CC, specifically those amazing alternate skins for Biggs? I’m willing to pay exorbinate amounts of duckets for the DToid one.

Hi Kris,

Any chance we will be seeing a PSP version? This seems like it would be a natural fill for the handheld….

I’m hoping to buy this via Amazon, any knowledge on how long it’ll take between PSN store and Amazon updates?

    We are looking into it, but I think it may take a bit of time since the Amazon store just launched. Hopefully soon!

This looks like it may end up as one of my favorite PSN titles, and for just $6.99? SOLD! Especially after reading IGN and Destructoid’s reviews.

    Thanks you! Good luck trying to win all of those trophies! Trust me, finishing the single player game is worth it not just for the shiny gold trophy…. the ending of the game is something you can never un-see:)

I don’t know if I can stomach another puzzle game… especially one that involves barfing! :o

+ PaiPai on October 8th, 2009 at 12:04 pm said:

Please don’t take this the wrong way, I’m sure the gameplay itself is as fantastic as it sounds…but I’m buying this game solely because the absolutely stellar art design and animation work. I’ve never seen anything quite like it in a game before and it’s what I’ve been waiting for, for a very long time.

Congrats on the launch! And big props to your art team. Can’t wait to download it, enjoy the art, and have some good barfin’ fun.

+ Ozumo on October 8th, 2009 at 12:09 pm said:

Even though I’m not really a fan of puzzle games, I will be buying this today due to the things you’ve done right: pricing it well (at $9.99 I wouldn’t even consider it), and taking the time to really polish this port of an iPhone game. The graphics and animation really look great. Also, having both on and off-line co-op and versus is great.

Normally I would wait for the demo, but I want to support a studio that does things right by the consumer. And this game actually looks fun, too! Great job, guys!

    We are actually looking into making some limited edition Biggs plushies. Biggs basically looks like a plushie already so it\’s a natural fit. We\’ll post something on our site if we manage to figure this out.
