Coming to PSN Today: Gravity Crash

Mike Graham's Avatar + Posted by Mike Graham on Nov 24, 2009 // Producer, International Software Development

Hi everyone! I’m Michael Graham, the US producer for Gravity Crash. Earlier this year at E3, we had the opportunity to introduce everyone to a brand-new old-school arcade style shooter, Gravity Crash. Well, I’m here to let you know that Gravity Crash will be available on PlayStation Store today for $9.99!

Just to give you a little background info, Gravity Crash combines vintage arcade shooter gameplay with striking HD vector graphics running in 1080p at 60 frames per second. Piloting a small craft armed with an arsenal of main and special weapons, a rechargeable shield and a carefully watched fuel gauge, players battle gravity and inertia through 35 levels that each feature environmental dangers, enemies and other obstacles. Along the way, players will encounter volcanic eruptions, winding caverns and bodies of water in their pursuit to complete their mission.

But wait, there’s more. You can create your own levels and share them with friends! Here to talk to you more about it is my colleague, Stewart Gilray, CEO of the development studio, Just Add Water, to give you the low-down.

Hi everyone, how are you guys doing?

What started for us as an idea almost three years ago is now about to invade your lives. Gravity Crash for PlayStation 3 will launch on the PlayStation Store today!

When we started working with Sony on this project we were certain we had a great idea for a game, and I have to say we are incredibly proud of what we’ve created and we can’t wait to see what you guys think when you get hold of it.

When you download the Trial edition of Gravity Crash you will get access to 4 levels from the 35 single-player and 12 multiplayer planets. You will also get full access to the game editor, where you will be able to design and create your own levels straight away, however only when you buy the game will you be able to challenge the world by publishing your creations on PlayStation Network.

Actually, I’d like to geek out for a moment and tell you about one of the little things we included in the Trial edition which, as far as we are aware, no one else has done before: at the end of the demo we have a dynamic “Published Levels” counter that tells you how many custom-made levels have been published to PSN. Personally I can’t wait to watch that number get bigger and bigger over the coming months!

I suppose that you’d also like to know how much all of this will cost.

$9.99 of your Earth money, will buy you:

  • 35 Single-player levels, including hidden and boss levels
  • 12 Multiplayer levels
  • 3 Multiplayer modes
  • Different player ships
  • Special weapons
  • Weapon power-ups
  • 20 devious Trophies
  • Leaderboards
  • Over 200 editor items

Speaking of the editor, just to reiterate what I said in my previous update, EVERY level in the game has been built with the same game editor, and you will have full access to it in the game. Here’s a little development diary from us at Just Add Water showing a bit of the editor in action!

And finally, during December we will be releasing a few extras to the PlayStation Store, so keep a look out for Gravity Crash wallpapers and themes. So all I’ve got left to say is thanks to everyone for your support since the game was announced. We hope you enjoy it and we can’t wait to see what you guys can create with the Editor!

So PSN is updating today due to Thanksgiving?

Hey Sony:

START UPDATE ON TUESDAYS EVERY WEEK LIKE YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING SINCE THE LAUNCH OF THE PSP GO.

Quit putting off doing what you need to do to make this happen and get all your ducks in a row already.

You got my money for sure.

+ dragonmagician on November 24th, 2009 at 1:47 pm said:

And I keep confusing this game with Comet Crash (even though the games are quite different); I keep thinking this has released already because of that.

Looks extremely interesting. Kudos for allowing us a “trial”. All publishers should try and do this.

+ JJfutbol on November 24th, 2009 at 1:58 pm said:

Wait a second… a PSP game too? Are you serious? That’s awesome! More of these PSN games need to be available on the PSP. I would certainly buy my favorites if they existed. Been waiting on this game since its been announced. Looks great!

What are the differences between the PS3 and PSP versions?


24

+ Shiromaji on November 24th, 2009 at 2:00 pm said:

Wait.. what?

The single player levels are strictly single-player?
Can anybody confirm this?


25

+ mtgd on November 24th, 2009 at 2:08 pm said:

looks cool, why always so pricy


26

+ RuthlessEd on November 24th, 2009 at 2:11 pm said:

#24:

What needs confirming?

A single-player level would, by definition, support single players.

A multiplayer level would, by definition, support multiple players.

+ jqtaxpayer on November 24th, 2009 at 2:13 pm said:

This looks like my kind of thing… I’ll definitely have to try this one out. And thanks for the level editor, that was a great idea!

I’m sold!

Pricey?

It’s less than $10.

Do you expect developers to just give you their games for free?

Looks like an awesome game. Love the retro style stuff… Kind of reminds me of Sub-Terrania. Will buy for sure.

Looks like a awesome game!


35

+ Neil on November 24th, 2009 at 2:40 pm said:

I saw this at E3 and thought it looked cool. I’ll buy it.


36

+ FunkyTable on November 24th, 2009 at 2:43 pm said:

Looks like a great launch, and looks like a lot of fun.

Could you specify if the multiplayer modes are online or local? Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but this game looks like it would be best with a friend sitting next to you shooting alongside you.


37

+ Enforcer_X on November 24th, 2009 at 2:43 pm said:

I want to buy it, I will buy it. Come on PSStore how about an update? Can the premium PSN get faster and more frequent updates? I would pay for that!


38

+ Caudill on November 24th, 2009 at 2:46 pm said:

Game looks great! Definitely going to be buying this one.


39

+ KwietStorm on November 24th, 2009 at 3:00 pm said:

Looks like a lot less artful Pixel Junk Shooter. Is the gameplay similar? Because I’m definitely getting Shooter.

Holy Carp!…its Gravitar!

Sucks that I’m done buying games…if it plays anything like the one I remember…do yourselves a favor and buy it!

What needs confirming is whether or not there will be co-op play for the main “campaign”.
Though it seems that co-op play will be left for the 12 multiplayer levels…

This won’t be an issue if user-created content can be played through multiplayer though!

+ AvoidTalkingMice on November 24th, 2009 at 7:19 pm said:

Looks awesome. Any possibility of DLC? Not looking for confirmation, but just an idea of what the developers are considering….would be cool to get new objects for levels, etc.

+ phinnv8 on November 24th, 2009 at 7:28 pm said:

The LBP style level creator and ability to put maps online sound great. Definately gonna check this game out over thanksgiving.

In the meantime back to Bad Company 2 Beta, it’s outstanding.
