ChromaGun is Like Portal, Except It’s Not – And It’s Coming to PlayStation 4 Augu...

Posted by on Jul 20, 2017

Hey there, all you beautiful potential test subjects!

Steve here, Creative Director at Pixel Maniacs – I’m super excited to announce our debut title is finally making its way onto PlayStation! [Cue applause sound]

Players have been loving ChromaGun, calling it “Portal, but with colors instead”, “perfect, for the time you’re waiting for the next Portal”, and “the closest thing we’ll ever get to a Portal sequel”. If you’ve read along carefully, you might have noticed the mention of Portal once or twice, but more on that later.

Destiny 2 Beta Impressions: the Story, the Strike and the Crucible

Posted by on Jul 20, 2017

The next chapter of Bungie’s sweeping science-fiction epic launches September 6 on PS4. To keep all the clamoring Guardians at bay, Bungie released a beta earlier this week starting with early access on July 18.

With the Last City in peril and plenty of Crucible matches to join, our team diligently played video games at the office to provide our thoughts on the Destiny 2 Beta, and how Dominus Ghaul seems like a truly unpleasant fellow.

Tension, Weapons and Powers: New Details on Absolver’s Intricate Combat System

Posted by on Jul 20, 2017

Greetings, dear Prospects. Our online melee action game Absolver is creeping close to launch and the team at Sloclap wanted to share the latest feature of the game with the PlayStation community. Additionally, Absolver is now available for preorder at PlayStation Store ahead of its August 29 launch date and players can get 10% off the base price as well as the exclusive Labyrinth Prospect Mask and Uring Priest Gear Set.

In our last PlayStation Blog post we detailed how you will be able to customize your character’s approach to combat – from combat style and moves to stances and how those moves chain together. This Combat Deck is the most important feature in Absolver and we think it is what will set the game apart from other fighting and action games. The feeling of approaching an opponent and not knowing what moves and attacks they have compiled in their Combat Deck brings a great deal of tension to these battles. Alongside the ability to change stances on the fly, this level of customization makes every fight feel unique and thrilling in its own way. Now we have a new variable to introduce… weapons and powers!

Anatomy of a Remaster: The Making of Rogue Trooper Redux

Posted by on Jul 20, 2017

Today we revealed Rogue Trooper Redux is coming to PlayStation 4 on October 17!

Exciting news, no doubt, but as someone who worked on the original, it’s staggering. Here’s this game we released for the PlayStation 2 in 2006, remastered for PlayStation 4. It is a bit surreal if I’m honest, but I’m thrilled to see how far the original has come. Our new side-by-side comparison trailer really underlines the difference!

RTS / Tower Defense Hybrid Comet Crash 2 Hits PS4 August 8

Posted by on Jul 19, 2017

Back in 2007, I was inspired to start my own game studio, Pelfast (literally: fast pixel), alongside Jennifer Pourchot given our shared passions for gaming and desire to create something that we’d both want to play. At the time, tower defense titles were hot, but they lacked a crucial element. After two years of development and hard work, we published Comet Crash, an award-winning multiplayer RTS with hybrid tower defense elements. To this day, we still hear stories from fans about co-op with family, intense battles with friends and Comet Crash parties that went until the wee hours of the morning.

Now, we’re ready to give our fans exactly what they want (and show new players what they’ve been missing out on) with an epic sequel. We’re super excited to announce Comet Crash 2: The Kronkoid Wars is launching August 8th on PS4!
