  • The game has been developed by the Spanish developer Wild Sphere in the context of the programme PlayStation®Talents and with the support of Lanzadera.

Valencia, Spain - January 24th, 2018. Sony Interactive Entertainment Spain (SIE Spain) announces the forthcoming release of Timothy vs the Aliens exclusively for PlayStation®4 (PS4™). This is an open-world action platformer where a tough and proud gangster named Timothy will lead the resistance against an invasion of terrifying aliens that have come to devour everything they will find on their way.

The game is set in a black and white world that contrasts with the colourful aliens, and combines platforms, puzzles and a lot of action. In a large city full of characters, stories and missions, Timothy will fight against tricky enemies driving the vehicles he will find on his way and using powerful weapons like a machine gun, a shotgun, a magnum or a revolver. Timothy’s world will take the player to the classic gangster movies with a touch of black humour and eccentricity.

The origin of Timothy vs the Aliens

The development studio Wild Sphere was founded in 2014 and the concept of Timothy vs the Aliens started to take shape at the end of 2015. In December 2016 the project won one of the awards given by SIE Spain in the third edition of Premios PlayStation® (in English, PlayStation® Awards), and soon after, in February 2017, Wild Sphere started the development of Timothy vs the Aliens in the Valencian branch for PlayStation®Talents Games Camp. This is a programme created by SIE Spain to support the Spanish video game industry, and the facilities in Valencia are provided for free to the selected developers by the business accelerator Lanzadera. This has allowed Wild Sphere to develop Timothy vs the Aliens in a timeframe of 10 months with a team of 4 people, 2 musicians and the mentorship provided by PlayStation®Talents and Lanzadera.

The result is this dynamic noir-style game that will be available on January 31st for digital download on PlayStation®Store in Europe and more countries*. The game will come to the rest of the world very soon.
