Mushroom Wars Coming to PSN This Thursday for $9.99

Scott Hyman's Avatar Posted by VP of Publishing, Creat Studios

Hey everyone! It’s Scott at Creat Studios again, here to tell you about our seventh (yes, seventh!) release for PlayStation Network in 2009. Our new RTS, Mushroom Wars, will be available for $9.99 this Thursday, October 15.

Now, you’re asking, what exactly is Mushroom Wars? Do I have to battle evil, killer mutant zombie mushrooms? Well, as cool as that might sound, (hmmm…maybe there’s a future PSN release!), you don’t battle the mushrooms themselves, but you will do battle for the mushrooms. Mushroom Wars is a fast-paced and accessible RTS, with a quaint, anime-inspired visual style where you send your cute armies into battle, upgrade your mushroom bases, improve your weaponry and fight skirmishes in close-quarter maps.

You can play against the AI or kick your friends’ butts in Campaign mode. The Skirmish mode lets you quickly jump right into battles. Local multiplayer allows up to four players to tough it out to see who’s the baddest army in the meadow.

We’re very excited about Mushroom Wars, and we’re confident that you’ll have a great time. Whether you’re pursuing a full campaign, or in the mood for a quick, five-minute RTS battle to jump-start your morning, Mushroom Wars is simply great fun.

Creat Studios wishes to continue to thank all of our fans who have played our PSN games this year. We greatly appreciate your support and your feedback. We can’t do it without you!

This game looks like a good way to pass the time. Hopefully its for the PSP too. Can’t wait for the update tomorrow to see what we are going to get for download for the psp.

I like this game because it reminds me a lot about Pixel Junk. I think it’ll buy it since I don’t play that many RTS games.

How do you keep comparing this to Pixel Junk Monsters when it’s hardly similar? in PJM you went around building towers to destroy the monsters coming. This is a war between two mushroom tribes who inhabit towers already prepared to take over the area, seriously, you need to figure out the differences between two different games, jeez.

This game looks like fun. So is there online? This game really needs to have online play.

Looks great… two things though. Sony needs to start doing mandatory demos on PSN (w/ user ratings) AND why is there no online mode for Mushroom Wars? Are you planning on adding online MP in the future?

A Galcon/Pixel Junk Monsters cross …with mushrooms! This is going to be legendary. Can’t wait.

This looks nice — and easy with the pixeljunk monsters rip off comments! So the art design is the same, I would be willing to bet, especially since they’ve had so many games come out in a short time that this has been in development for awhile.

It’s hard to make a judgement based one a single video.

I, for one, look forward to it. Looks neat, though, admitedly, I loved PJM and it’s ilk.

If it doesn’t come on a disc, it isn’t worth owning.

This isn’t really turret defense, but similar. I like the idea of sendin my army out to fight another while occupying bases and upgradin them to make them stronger. Tight idea. I might pick this up, after the review.

Local multiplayer only? Again!??!

This trophy alone “Сomrade: Play 100 Local Multiplayer Matches,” may have killed the sale for me. It’s been said time and time again to PSN devs, don’t create such demanding local multiplayer trophies. Not sure but leaning towards a no purchase.

No demo = no buy.

    We are working on demo to dispel all of your doubts. Please, stay tuned.

I bought this today, and it is definately fun. However, the trophy for 100 *local* multiplayer matches is silly. It just means people will play 100 matches against themselves to quickly get it.

The default screen size is *just* larger than my tv, but making it smaller in the options makes it A LOT smaller – needs to be more incremental.

Finally, what do all the icons on the map mean? There is no documentation of this, which is frustrating.

Otherwise, a fun game! :)

This is false advertising:

“You can play against the AI or kick your friends’ butts in Campaign mode. The Skirmish mode lets you quickly jump right into battles. Local multiplayer allows up to four players to tough it out to see who’s the baddest army in the meadow.”

First, there’s no option for multiplayer campaign mode in the game. Second this game so far only supports 2 players, not 4. I think I want my money back or a patch!
