Hi everyone. Usually I come here to tell you about Japanese games getting a release in the West, however, in a slightly unusual turn of events I’m going to tell you about the Japanese release of Laughing Jackal’s fantastic firefighting action roguelike, Flame Over.
Flame Over is available for just ¥1099 and you can find it here on the Japanese PSN Store.
As a big fan of Japanese gaming, I must admit it’s really exciting to see a game I’ve worked on released on PSN in Japan. :)
Now you’re playing with fire!
Blending top down ‘squirt ‘em-up’ action with Roguelike RPG mechanics, Flame Over features fast-paced fire-fighting thrills, randomly generated levels and 4 deadly game zones.
Guide fire-fighting hero, Blaze Carruthers, in a race against time and near-certain death! Squirt, splash and spray your way through all 16 floors of the deadly Infernal Industries building, combating ferocious fires in a red-hot adventure that changes every time.
This game is ON FIRE!
• It Burns! - Fight against a deadly dynamic fire system that spreads realistically.
• Shop ‘til you Drop! - Find hidden items, equip powerups and upgrade Blaze to survive.
• Be a Hero! - Rescue panicking people and cutesy cats to stay alive.
• Never-Ending Emergency! - Thousands of room variations and secrets will keep you fired up… forever!
In other news, we’re still hard at work on several projects at the moment, including the JRPG I’ve mentioned a few times, which is coming along nicely. The porting process has been going very smoothly! Unfortunately, we’re still not able to share details with you yet, but as soon as we’re allowed, rest assured I’ll be on the blog to tell you all. :)
Finally, I’m sorry to tell you that there will not be a Ghostlight blog next week, as I’m going to South Africa on holiday. This has the side benefit of not overshadowing E3, which I’m sure was something everyone over in LA was worrying about. :) Having said that, I have emailed everyone displaying at E3 asking them to hold off on announcing anything exciting until I’m back in the country. I haven’t had any replies yet, but I’m sure they’ll be coming any minute…
That’s all from me. I’ll be back in two weeks, but until then why not follow us on our Twitter and Facebook pages, our Youtube Channel and our Google + account, where we’ll be posting all the latest news from Ghostlight? You can also follow me on Twitter for a more personal take on all things Ghostlight.
