Rougelike Vita exclusive due to release soon.

In a post over on PlayStation Blog, developer Laughing Jackal have revealed new gameplay footage and details of their upcoming Vita exclusive Flame Over.

Check out footage of the title in action below;

The details which were revealed in the blog post, which you can see here include how the game can change based on split second decisions and how the games upgrade system will work.

Laughing Jackal are aiming to have the game released some time in February 2015, but in the meantime, for more information on the game as it is announced stay locked on The Vita Lounge.

      Indeed it does! Although, color me surprised this wasn’t a ANOTHER game you had forgotten about! I did! : )

    I hope this game won’t get featured in February’s ps plus free games. I feel like the developers should be rewarded for a game like this because trust me, as “simple” as it may look to you, there’s A LOT of coding, headache-generator troubleshooting, a lot of manpower and exhausted, sleepless hours to develop and let us play it.
    Also, it’s okay for a game to change based on adaptive last-minute-decisions and improved upgrade system but when it comes to how the game is handled on the Vita, it means lots of seconds to wait, every single time you stumble upon a loading screen. Kind of reminds me how exhausted you feel after playing CounterSpy and Killzone, the loading screens take from 5 to 8% of the overall gameplay time. This IS an issue, since the game will be installed on a proprietary memory card, so it’s up to sony to address it but I don’t see it happening anytime soon.
    I’ve tweeted the developer last year and we were hoping for a 2014 release, which didn’t happen (not sure why); Lets just hope Flame Over opens up the Vita’s Fun Games of 2015 Book we’ve been waiting for. I’m sold.

      I admire your concern for the developers but you really don’t have worry about them getting their money for all of the hard work.

      Im sure Murphy will chime in on this if my explanation is faulty, but back at our old stomping grounds (the formally great PS Vita Forum), a rep from Prima Games explained what happens when a game is offered for “free” on PS+.

      While we get it at no cost, Sony actually pays the developers for all of those dowloads so they can rightfully be compensated for their work. We get a game we otherwise might have passed up and the developer gets paid and greater exposure at no cost to them. It’s a win for all involved. Apologies if I’m wrong, but I believe that’s the gist of it. I hope I helpful! : )

    Looks so much fun. I was skeptical of the timer in a roguelike, but it really gives a sense of urgency to the game. Looks great

    Really like the look of that 😀
