Slam Bolt Scrappers Bursts onto PSN in March with Innovative “Beverage Mode”

Slam Bolt Scrappers:

Ah, March. Home to Mardi Gras, the Equinox, and Pi Day. Now you can add one more celebration-worthy event to that list: It’s when Slam Bolt Scrappers, the new indie game, will be hitting the PlayStation Network!

If you are wondering “What is this awesome and likely epic game I’ve never heard of?” then boy do we have some good news for you! A unique blend of brawling and building mayhem, Slam Bolt Scrappers is a one-to-four player party game where you fight and simultaneously build crazy weapon-growing towers.

Slam Bolt Scrappers: Robot Boss

The game features a co-op campaign where up to four players can work together against super-smart enemy AIs, and giant bosses with anger management issues. We’re also bringing back couch play with a four-way battle mode where those same friends can duke it out for hours and hours while shouting at each other and the TV. The game even has a beverage mode where you can play with one hand while using the other to multitask and enjoy a tasty drink. Sweet!

We’ve been hammering away these past few months and we’re happy to say that oh man this game is getting wicked fun. We’re putting the finishing touches on it now so that it’ll be extra shiny for the March release. In the mean time enjoy these new screens! And be sure to check out the Slam Bolt Scrappers website for more updates as we get closer and closer to the drop date. We’ll be putting up more images, concept art, and videos, as well as descriptions of our new characters, levels, and weapons. This is one PlayStation Network game you don’t want to miss!

Should have called the new mode “Sandwhich mode” because “beverage mode” makes it sound like its some kind of drinking game lol.

    Ha! AWESOME. We love this comment – one of the guys is actually playing beverage mode while eating a sandwich right now. So we can confirm that YES, SANDWICH MODE IS A GO :)

I actually got to play-test this because of that call for testers here on PSB. I can say from first-hand experience that it’s really fun, and I look forward to playing the final version when it’s released.

Hmm, another great looking game. It will be time to delete some PSN games off my hard drive soon.

Everyone should buy this game! One of the best games I played at Pax Prime last September.

What up Eitan. (This is Chris from PSNStores, btw)

Eitan,

I see what was done there in that 1st Screen… “PSN!” Clever… I missed it the first few looks at it, I wonder if anyone else happened to notice the handy work?

Ill be looking forward to seeing more on Slam Bolt, Beverage Mode Puts a nice refreshing spin on a classic!

–See what i did there… I kill myself…. Its all about the little things in life isnt it!?

Is The campaign co-op designed for couch, online, both, or even simultaneous couch online?

There is a long line of comments/jokes that I want to make from my sessions with Alec but I don’t know what I can and can’t say T_T.

Is there a demo slated? This looks like a day 1 purchase, but a demo would make me feel much more comfortable.

    I totally hear you! We love demos here, try before you buy for these kinds of games is awesome.

    So YES, barring any weird bugs or last minute problems the game will come with a demo. SWEET :)

Day one purchase for me. I saw it at PAX East last year and loved what I saw.

If you watch this, you’ll see me (the brunette on the left) and a bunch of other Ghostbusters playing Slam Bolt Scrappers at PAX East, 2010. The game is a blast- a must buy.
