FuturLab reveals Velocity, raises the bar for PlayStation minis

Brighton, UK

February 9th 2012

‘Velocity’ is a scrolling shooter unlike any other which features an innovative teleport mechanic, allowing players to jump around the screen and return to previous areas of a level to solve time sensitive logic puzzles.

From James Marsden, FuturLab's Managing Director:

“We’ve achieved some notable innovations within the shoot ‘em-up genre, to the point where Velocity not only lives up to fond memories of shoot ‘em-up classics, but goes several steps further by introducing something completely new and exciting – teleportation! It also features a phenomenal soundtrack from Joris de Man, winner of an Ivor Novello award for his work on the Killzone series for PS3.”

Robin Jubber, Supreme Technical Commander added:

"Speaking as a handsome man, I can confirm this is just the sort of astonishing programming masterpiece I like to play, when I'm winding down after a nine hour coital marathon. With its fluid 60fps gameplay and remarkable hidden features, it very much reminds me of me. As an extra bonus, space is black, so you can always see your face in the Vita’s shiny screen. Modest yet beautiful men like me will find this game as polished as my Superbike. I like to watch my name in the credits while marveling at the sharpness of the font. Buy Velocity now, and earn my manly respect!"

The official Velocity website is now live, as is the Facebook page where artwork and screenshots can be viewed, as well as back story.
