31.10.2011

Denki are delighted to announce the launch of Save the Day, their new arcade Save ‘Em Up game. The follow up to the award-winning, acclaim-grabbing word game, Quarrel, Save the Day is a modern twitch arcade game with a difference; it’s a console game built in HTML5 and fully playable in the browser.

It is the last point which Denki are particularly proud of, as Producer, Sean Taylor, explains: “A lot of platforms, engines and developers talk about aiming to deliver console gaming experiences in the browser but - to date - few have delivered. We see Save the Day as a benchmark, proof that you can make a browser game which not only looks like it belongs on XBLA or PSN but plays like it too. Kudos to the guys at Turbulenz, some doubted their HTML5 gaming engine could deliver genuine console quality experiences but I believe Save the Day is proof that it can.”

Of the game itself, Taylor says: “Save the Day takes the familiarity of a classic twitch arcade game and makes it fresh and vital again, turning the classic Shoot ‘Em Up concept on its head to make the game about saving rather than slaughtering.”

Save the Day Features

  • Familiar but fresh twitch arcade gaming
  • High-octane helicopter heroics
  • Scrumptious snack-sized gameplay
  • Infinite replayability
  • Hearty highscore high-jinks
