Stealth B**tard sneaks onto PS3 and PS Vita this summer

Hello! I am utterly overjoyed to bring you news that Stealth B**tard, our outrageously devious stealth-puzzle-platformer, will be sneaking its way on to PS3 and PS Vita this Summer!

If you’ve not yet heard of Stealth B**tard, it’s our deadly stealth platform game with a fast paced twist! Following your birth in a cloning lab, you find yourself trapped in a vast and overwhelming network of dastardly chambers, replete with vicious, yet hilarious, booby traps and deranged robots! Your task is simple; stay out of sight and get to the exit. Persevere to the bitter end and you might just discover the secrets of this vicious world!

We like to look at Stealth B**tard as stealth gaming without the waiting. Gone are the days of hanging around in a locker or a conveniently-placed human-sized crate! The mechanical foes of our stealth world are much less forgiving, instantly eviscerating you or your fellow captives on sight!

The game boasts brilliantly crisp visuals, an abundance of character, tight controls and a steady difficulty curve that gradually ramps up across 80 levels, spread over eight unique worlds. Additional features such as un-lockable gadgets, speedrun leaderboards and a level editor gives the game unlimited replay value!

With stages taking anywhere between 30 seconds and 10 minutes to complete, plus tons of secrets to discover, we think our game will really be coming home for PS3 and PS Vita!

This is all very exciting! But there’s more… we’d like to present our fans with an opportunity to be a part of Stealth B**tard’s journey to PlayStation. We want to rename Stealth B**tard to something less profane… it’s just too rude!

We therefore want you to have a go at naming the PlayStation versions – if you think you’ve got the perfect profanity-free solution to our naughty title, we want to hear from you!

If you’ve got a great idea for a new title, head on over to our site and submit it to us! If you suggest the winning name, we’ll give you a spot in the credits, a copy of the game when it’s finished, and we’ll throw in a PS Vita as well! Not bad, eh?!

The closing date is 14th April 2013, so drop on by to http://www.curve-studios.com/win-a-ps-vita without delay to submit your ideas!

Please just keep the original name. Why compromise your artistic integrity? Bastard isn’t even a profanity. It means his parents aren’t married. Since he’s a clone, maybe it’s even a partially accurate statement.

My vote is to keep the original name.

    Thank you! Unfortunately, our desired nomenclature could present legal issues further down the road!

    Besides, we’re making a brand new engine especially for a PS3 and Vita, it would be nice to give it a unique name to set it apart :)

Looks like fun. Hope to see more PSN titles also come to Vita in the future.

Is the contest just for the ‘sub name’ ?

That is, are you only looking to replace the word B**TARD and keep STEALTH in the title?

    + Sam Robinson on April 2nd, 2013 at 7:48 am said:

    The whole name is up for grabs. If you think the ‘Stealth’ part works, you may keep it as part of your submission… or you may want to drop it entirely, it’s up to you!

I don’t see what’s so profane about “Stealth” but I’ll play…

There you go-free of charge!

Oh come on! ‘Stealth B**tard’ is a great name! Don’t give in to the over-sensitive wienies.

I keep reading the censored title as “Stealth Batard”. THE QUIESTEST BREAD EVER.

Anyway, keep up with the Vita indie rush, Sony! (It’s easier than trying to put my laptop in my pocket for Steam…)

I wish I could enter the contest but I already have a VITA and I play Stealth B regularly on PC. :/
I hope PC saves can be converted to VITA/PS3 saves cause I got pretty far in the game.

“vicious, hilarious booby traps”

If this is not going retail for soccer moms and grandmas to see, then I say keep the name Stealthy Bastard.

It will certainly stand out and catch people’s eye.

Probably shouldn’t post what I’ve decide to enter, but I went with “Stealthy B’s: Clone Ops.

I got one! You should name it Inclonito, incognito+clone because it is a stealth game and the main character is a clone! Don’t you agree?
