VANCOUVER, British Columbia— March 22 nd, 2011— Big Sandwich Games announced today that their award-winning strategy title HOARD™ is available for purchase in North America on the PSP ® (PlayStation ®Portable) system. To celebrate, the publisher has also put the PlayStation ®3 computer entertainment system version on sale.
Both versions are currently selling for the low price of $9.99, although the PlayStation ®3 system discount is for a limited time only. The titles can be purchased via the PlayStation ® Network.
HOARD TM puts players in the role of a dragon, fighting against towns, knights, giants, wizards, and thieves in a quest to gather as much gold as possible. The game includes over 35 levels, single player challenges, co-op and competitive multiplayer (PlayStation ®3 system), and 90+ badges to earn. The gameplay is a cross between a dual-stick arcade shooter and an RTS, with significant elements of strategy and deeper systems. Joystiq.com notes,“HOARD’s gameplay shines.”
“It’s hard to find this much destruction and fun for such a low price,” observes Tyler Sigman, the game’s designer. “Torment villages, kidnap princesses, and burn down castles– all for the cost of a muffin and a latte!”
