FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BRAINTREE, UK – ??/08/2013
Lauging Jackal have announced their latest Vita
title Flame Over. Speaking on the PlayStation blog Laughing
Jackal’s senior producer called it:
“A fast-paced, action-packed firefighting roguelike,
featuring randomly generated levels and complex fire A.I. that
radiates, jumps between objects, consumes fuel and destroys the
environment in real time.
The player's objective is simple. Guide a firefighter through
the sixteen floors of Infernal Industries' skyscraping HQ,
exploring your environment, seeking out loot, secrets and power ups
and hunting down blazes against the clock.
Levels in Flame Over are fully destructible and feature four
different themes, many room types, secrets items and levels,
environmental hazards and tons of lovely loot and power
Flame over will feature:
A multi-layered random level generator so the player can never
'learn' the best way through each level. Like a real firefighter
you'll be walking into the unknown every time! Each level has its
own theme, room types, fuel objects, mini missions, secrets and
victims to rescue.
Play as Blaze Carruthers, London's foremost firefighting hero,
who will be discovering each level's layout, using his trusty hose,
extinguisher and fire axe to track down blazes, hack through doors
and walls and rescue imperilled workers and - of COURSE - save
With no two playthroughs ever the same, players can also save
out their favourite levels, set Challenges and share them with
their friends other players worldwide using Near.
You will also be able to fuel the flame war using more
traditional Cash Dash and Time Attack leaderboards.
Flame Over will be blazing a trail onto PlayStation Vita in Q1
