TerRover Demo Comes to Qore Tomorrow

Scott Hyman's Avatar + Posted by Scott Hyman on Aug 09, 2010 // VP of Publishing, Creat Studios

Hello, PlayStation World! I’m back to share our most exciting news of the year. We’re thrilled to let you know about our upcoming PlayStation Network exclusive, TerRover. We’ve been working hard on this one for a while, and we’re eager to let you get your hands on it and discover the engaging gameplay for yourselves.

TerRover

You can do just that with the free demo of TerRover available with both versions of Qore tomorrow. Plus, you can watch the (hopefully not-embarrassing) interview with me at E3, chatting it up with Veronica about why the game is so much fun.

The TerRover is a cute little robot buggy with a big smile and warm heart in need of your help to find a new planetary home for him and his friends. The TerRover’s controls aren’t quite like anything else out there. His head slides back and forth across his body as you change direction. One button press places his head under his body to turn him over. And most importantly, the left stick lets you pivot your TerRover up and down from either end. You’ll need to master this skill in order to save the TerRover population!

You get weapons and tools, too. Choose from various chassis equipped with rocket launchers, magnet cables and more. They’ll come in handy in tight spots, and assist in collecting all the mechanical parts scattered about and discovering the numerous secret areas and hidden passages. You’ll find yourself aching to come back and explore every inch of every level.
 
We’re very eager here at Creat Studios to find out what you all think of our newest game. Sony Online Entertainment has been incredibly supportive, and they’ve helped us make the best game we can. As always… a big, big thank you to all of our fans out there. We simply could not what we love without you. Please drop by our website, check us out on Facebook, or follow us on Twitter, as we want to know what you think.

The art in the bottom screenshot actually sort of reminds me of the really abstract style of the backgrounds in Super Paper Mario.

I’ll give this a trial run. If it’s good; hopefully it won’t get overlooked amid the other things being released tomorrow.

Having a wide variety of “it reminds me of…” comments is probably a good thing. For me, it looks like Gravity Crash. Which is also a good thing. I’ll definitely try out the demo when it becomes available outside of Qore. :)

+ PuppetShoJustice on August 9th, 2010 at 9:40 am said:

Looked up some gameplay videos. I don’t feel quite right commenting on gameplay that I haven’t touched myself but I will say this: The art is interesting enough that I think it warrants the creation of themes/dynamic themes. Having a couple of the little guys roving (rovering…?) about my PS3 desktop would be pretty slick.

Does the game have 24-bit HD audio? This is PS3, after all :) Creat seems to make their audio levels really loud, both in-game and XMB to compensate for lower quality. We want the dynamic range 24-bit HD audio gets us, not just the loudness :)

In the screenshots, the glow from the eyes doesn’t appear to have any lighting effect on the surrounding graphics. Was a lack of lighting and shader effects a conscious choice?

Glad to hear about local co-op! Let me put in another vote for local co-op for Mushroom Wars, and another vote higher quality audio when Mushroom Wars gets patched!
