Music-themed Action RPG AereA Coming to PS4 June 30

Posted by on Apr 20, 2017

Hi there! I’m Marten, PR guy over at Soedesco. Today I’d like to tell you something about our new IP and game Aerea! Aerea is a music-themed action-RPG and today I’d like to announce that it will be releasing on PS4 June 30, both boxed and digitally!

First off, let me tell you a little more about the backstory of the game. In Aerea everything you see is music-themed. From the characters, to the weapons, to the enemies — music. You explore a music-filled world which got separated into three islands during what we call ‘The Great Separation’. These islands were held in balance by nine primordial instruments, which have been stolen. As a disciple of the Great Meastro Guido, who created the primordial instruments, you have to return them to restore the balance and peace to the world.

Full Throttle Remastered is out today, 22 years after it first hit store shelves back in April of 1995. It tells the tale of Ben Throttle, butt-kicking leader of biker gang the Polecats, who gets caught up in a tale of motorcycles, mayhem, and murder.

Full Throttle was Tim Schafer’s first game as sole project lead at LucasArts, and just like his other Lucas games, Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango, it soon became a beloved cult classic. We’ve already remastered those other two, and with this one we complete the trilogy of Tim Schafer LucasArts games.
