Videos Sony Puzzle PS Vita News

The Australian contribution to the Playstation Vita game library continues this week as independent game studio Nnooo will be releasing escapVektor. escapeVektor will be released on the European, Australian and New Zealand Playstation Stores on December 19, which is this Wednesday, at the prices of €9.99/AUD$15.95/NZD$18.90. The series was initially a four chapter series before Nnooo decided to develop the game as one entity.

Here is a small description provided by Nnooo on the game:

escapeVektor is a retro styled arcade game in which the player controls Vektor, an entity trapped inside the player’s CPU. The player has to help Vektor escape the CPU which has been holding him captive. In making his escape, Vektor must get through obstacles and avoid enemies, each with different hunting patterns and intelligence. As the player completes the various levels in the game, escape becomes more difficult. New abilities unlock to help the player outwit and destroy the CPU’s army. As the player continues through the game, old code and memories are unlocked which reveal more about Vektor’s past.

Nic Watt, Creative Director at Nnooo, talks about the features of the game:

“There are 150 levels in escapeVektor, spread across 27 different worlds. We’ve also included additional enemies and obstacles, 3 types of online leaderboard and a new Wildcard system. We’re really happy with how this “complete edition” version of the game has turned out.

“The game uses the unique features of each handheld device. On the PS Vita we use the gyroscope and the touchscreen to adjust the camera angle and move Vektor around in the overworld maps, and we’re also making use of Near functionality to drop additional Wildcards that players can pick up and use.”

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
