FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BRAINTREE, UK – 06 th October 2011

Laughing Jackal, the developer of OMG-Z, Cubixx HD and the PlayStation conversions of Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson’s Fighting Fantasy series, have revealed - following hints on their Facebook and Twitter pages - the name of their latest PlayStation Mini as being Orbit, and provided us with the following teaser:

“Help Doc, the Institute of Space Research Institute’s last remaining astronaut, as he explores the Solar System in as many different space “ships” as the ISRI can cobble together.

You’ll need to survey the gas giant Jupiter, probe the blackest depths of Uranus and collect all the gold ore you can find to fill Prof’s bank account, err... I mean revive the failing space program.  To aid you, Prof has planned out upgrades for 8 of your ships to help separate you from your cash, err... sorry, I mean to improve your flight capabilities, enabling you to circumnavigate all the planets of the Solar System before travelling further into the universe.”

Laughing Jackal have also promised to give more information from their secret documents as soon as the IRSI declassifies them.

Established in 2005, Laughing Jackal are the developer of PlayStation minis such as Du æl Invaders, Vibes, Ace Armstrong vs. the Alien Scumbags, Stellar Attack , Cubixx, the Fighting Fantasy series of Choose Your Own Adventure gamebooks and the classic zombie chain reaction puzzler, OMG-Z.
