Console survivalists and builders rejoice, 505 Games has today announced it will be bringing the independent block-building survival blockbuster, Terraria to Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network.
Originally released in 2011 on PC by creator-developer Andrew Spinks’ Re-logic studio; Terraria is a side-scrolling, action-adventure sandbox game, with an emphasis on crafting and exploration set in vast and vibrant worlds. It has received universal acclaim from media and fans alike — 1.6 million “Terrarians” have struck out on their own adventures since release.
With a vast array of materials and items to collect, Terraria is far more than a mere block building game, gamers experience is limited only by their own imaginations; the world really is yours to shape and explore.
“The block-building genre has taken the world by storm and Terraria has garnered a massive following through its increased focus on adventure and discovery.” said Tim Woodley, Head of Global Brand for 505 Games. “We’re looking forward to bringing an already hugely successful experience to a brand new console audience and we can’t wait for the existing Terraria fan base to experience all-new content”.
Topware Interactive have today announced the creation of a website for upcoming twin-stick shooting/colour matching game Transcripted, offering a hugely updated version of the 2 year-old game of the same name.
Framing itself as a nightmare scenario in which a new, unknown virus is threatening to destroy the entire human race, Transcripted is an interesting blend of two wildly different yet immensely popular aspects of casual arcade titles – the Twin-Stick Shooter and the Match-Three Colour Puzzle.
Players are tasked with taking command of the nana-probe – a tiny drone that can penetrate deep into an infected person’s body – and wage war directly on a new and terrifying virus enemy. To do this, the probe first turns its weapons upon the many tumorous masses the virus sets on it – this being the twin-stick portion of the gameplay. You’ll face foes aping many of the genre’s mainstays, such as enemies that will ram you or fire set patterns of bullets. After vanquishing a few of these, the colour matching comes in. As enemies are destroyed they release coloured blocks, the same as the ones that are continuously streaming along the top or bottom (depending on the stage) of the arena. You then pick these blocks up and fire them at the streaming blocks, hoping to match enough to defeat the virus.
