Karlsruhe, Germany, March 13 th 2012 – TopWare Interactive announced today an exciting new partnership with Polish development studio Bloober Team for publication of A-men. The pairing will bring Bloober’s Playstation®Vita title A-men to European and North American markets in the coming months, and will mark the first retail release availability of the franchise outside Japanese territories.
A-men is a platform-logic game reminiscent of many “old-school” platforming franchises. Inspired by an age of games designed to challenge players to use game mechanics inventively, A-men is focused on thought provoking puzzle scenarios, absorbing entertainment, and a charmingly classic art-style.
“Many game publishers were interested in A-men, however TopWare demonstrated the most excitement. From among many options they chose to pursue A-men, a title which we believe compares favorably with the other games available on Playstion®Vita”, said Bloober Team’s President of the Management Board, Piotr Babieno. “TopWare guarantees professional cooperation and greatest commercial success potential for our game”.
“ A-men is a refreshing game that harkens back to the days of Lemmings™ and Lost Vikings™”, stated TopWare’s Managing Director James Seaman. “It’s a truly unique offering for the Vita platform, and will greatly appeal to those players with a penchant for classic puzzle-platformers.”
