Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty developers issue update

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty publisher Oddworld Inhabitants has been pretty quiet about other #announced versions of the #game, following the release of the PS4 version in July. Now the team released a massive update concerning all versions.

Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty developers issue update for upcoming release

The publisher posted a detailed blog about the #Linux, Mac and Windows PC versions, the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions, the Xbox One version and the Wii U version.

Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty Linux, Mac and Windows PC versions

Oddworld explained that it had recently showcased the full PC version of Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty in Manchester in October, but the game is not yet fully optimised for all hardware, and as such it is still a couple of months away from release. This version will come with graphics options, controller support and rebindable keys. No date just yet, but it will take at least a couple more months, though here may be a closed beta on Steam in the near future.

PlayStation 3 and Vita versions

“Fitting the expansive worlds of Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty into the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita has proved to be something of a challenge. The relatively limited RAM available to us has meant we’re having to break down some of the huge scrolling areas seen in the PC and PS4 versions whilst ensuring we retain the same great gameplay,” reads the update

“We’re keen to have the PS3 version running smoothly at 720p and the PS Vita version at its native resolution, but this isn’t without some degree of difficulty. We know PS3 and PS Vita owners are desperate to get their hands on the game, but please rest assured we’re doing everything we can to make this happen to get it onto the PlayStation Store as soon as possible.”

The blog adds that there will be more news to share on those versions in the coming weeks.

Dragon Fin Soup roguelike JRPG adds another mode of challenges

Dragon Fin Soup roguelike JRPG adds another game mode

Roguelike Japanese role-playing game hybrid Dragon Fin Soup will include an #EndlessLabyrinth mode designed to push players’ skills and patience to the limits, developer Grimm Bros. #announced this morning.

Endless Labyrinth mode features just that — an endless labyrinth packed with high-level bosses and traps that can take players out for the slightest misstep. Players can share how long they survive with their friends, competing for high scores in this arena designed to test their mettle.

Additionally, Dragon Fin Soup will be featured in Cologne, Germany, next month at Gamescom’s first-ever Indie Megabooth. The show runs from Aug. 13-17.

Dragon Fin Soup, which was funded through Kickstarter earlier this year and approved through Steam Greenlight, tells the story of Red Robin — a boisterous and alcoholic take on Little Red Riding Hood — as she fights her way through a world of dark and twisted fairy tales. Red Robin’s story is slated to launch on Linux, Mac and Windows PC. As well as PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

This is the first game from former-Human Head COO Ashe Monif and veteran League of Legends and Magic the Gathering designer Randis Albion — whose company Grimm Bros. was launched to create games that offer unusual spins on traditional fairy tales.

Coming to Linux, Mac and Windows PC – Grim Fandango Remastered

Though Sony said that #DoubleFine Productions’ remastered edition of Grim Fandango would be on the PS4 and PS Vita, #TimSchafer recently took to Twitter to confirm that the game will be arriving on the PC, Mac and Linux. And no, it will not be arriving later, thus giving the PlayStation platforms timed exclusivity.

“Reap your heart out! We’re pleased to announce Grim Fandango will also be available on PC, Mac, and Linux alongside PlayStation 4 and Vita!”

Grim Fandango is arguably one of the biggest cult classics in gaming and also one of the best adventure games ever made. It was created by LucasArts but nott sell very well, despite universal critical acclaim. Nevertheless, its story and gameplay has stood the test of time.

What are your thoughts on the remastered version coming to PC, Mac and Linux? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and whether you will be picking it up.

Sportsfriends coming to Playstation on May 6, while Linux, Mac, Windows PC are later

Indie Developer Die Gute Fabrik, announces Sportsfriends, a compilation of four fun filled sports #games designed for local #multiplayer action, and will be #released on May 6 in America for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 for $14.99. “Some weeks later” the Linux, Mac, Windows PC versions of the game will be available. Die Gute Fabrik was planning to release Sportsfriends last fall, then aimed for January before delaying the game it again.

“We’re still hoping to release a backers-only Windows/Mac/Linux beta in conjunction with the PlayStation release so that everyone can start playing,” said Die Gute Fabrik.

The game includes sports games like Johann Sebastian Joust, a fighting game in physical space where you will have to physically jostle your opponents controller, while also defending your own, and it is also music-based; Super Pole Riders, a QWOP-like pole vaulting game for two players; Hokra, a two-on-two sports game; and BaraBariBall, a fighting-oriented sports game.

“We literally couldn’t have made Sportsfriends without all our enthusiastic Kickstarter backers and fans. We’re super proud of what we’ve made, and we don’t think it’ll disappoint.”

OlliOlli Coming to Linux, Mac, PC, PS3, and PS4 this Summer

It seems like OlliOlli was a hit for #Roll7, because the developer announced today that they’ll be #porting the #game over to the PlayStation 3, 4, PC, Mac, and Linux this summer.

It’s early yet, but Director Simon Bennett is already confident about progress. “We already have a first playable up and running on the PS4, it’s like our little OlliOlli grew up and got some balls! Really feels amazing on the Dualshock too,” he said in a press release.

The game is best described as a sidescrolling 8-bit take on EA’s Skate series, using similar movements with the analog controls to bust out any number of grinds, slides, and flip trick combos.

OlliOlli will be in good hands. Taking on the ports for the PlayStation 3 and 4 port is Bitly, a company known for doing impressive ports of a nice range of titles including Jet Set Radio, Sonic CD, Spelunky, and Fez.

Roll7 also announced that a patch is currently in development for the game and the crash bug is almost fixed. When it’s complete, “we’ll bundle in a nice little update that should put a smile on people’s faces,” said the team.

Originally a PS Vita exclusive, OlliOlli released in January. But Linux Game News are looking forward the ports this summer.
