It’s fair to say that Ripstone are one of our favourite Vita publishers. With an eye for many unique and interesting titles, they got in touch with us this afternoon to tell us about their newest project which is called Flyhunter Origins.

The first title to be developed by Steel Wool Games – a talented team which is made up of five artists with a total of 60 years experience in the animation industry and boast film credits such as Brave, The Incredible, Toy Story, Monsters University, Ratatouille and many others – Flyhunter Origins is said to deliver the sort of high quality cutscenes, characters and story that you would expect from a team with such extraordinary credentials.

The press release reads:

“Let’s set the scene… Zak is a bumbling alien spaceship Janitor and wannabe Flyhunter from Burgarol 3. He works on board the Flyhunter Crew’s legendary spaceship; ‘The Frog’ but deep down he longs for an exciting adventure of his own. Somewhere in Earth’s orbit, while the heroic Flyhunters are deep in cryo sleep; The Frog’s cargo of super-important exotic insects from the latest hunt is mysteriously jettisoned into Space, crash-landing back on planet Earth! It seems that clumsy Janitor Zak is the only one around to save the day. Can this accidental hero swap his sweeping brush for a super-cool fly swatter and take on the role of daring Flyhunter? It’s a good job Zak’s used to cleaning up – because he’s in a huge mess! Hurry! Help this little dude complete his mission, before “The Investors” find out their expensive bugs are missing!”

Flyhunter Origins is slated for a Summer release and we will bring you more news as we have it, meanwhile here is a teaser trailer and a few screens.

    Being developed by ex-Pixar artists, I’m anticipating some pretty spartan visuals. Question is, will the core gameplay mechanics equal the eyecandy?
