Arcade Distillery To Release Three New Games In 2018
Luc Bernard and the team at Arcade Distillery are hard at work on three games set to release for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2018. Come check them out!
Luc Bernard had this to say about each of the games:
On the oceans, sailors tell stories of a ship crewed by the dead and flying the black flag of piracy. They say a skeletal army lives within its hold, waiting to assault unwary vessels and steal their treasure. In hushed tones, their name is uttered: “SkullPirates.”
Their captain, the Skull Queen, has a fearsome reputation as a cutthroat hunter of the seas. She should; she spent a whole lot on marketing to cultivate that image. She also spent a lot on weapons, cannons, clothes, hats, boots, jewelry, couches, drapes. But most of all, she spent money on her prized ship, “The Coccyx Avenger”.
In order to support this extravagant lifestyle, the Skull Queen borrowed money from unsavory characters, and now they’ve come to collect. A group of loan sharks, led by the cunning Sharktavia, have The Coccyx Avenger surrounded and are demanding repayment.
To save her ship, her career in piracy, and her reputation, the Skull Queen must send her crew to infiltrate the nearby isle of Catannia, locate its treasury vault, and steal anything that isn’t nailed down. It’s a good thing she has a lot of SkullPirates.
War Theatre is a strategy RPG for PS Vita and PS4. I took the feedback from Plague Road and the progression system people wanted, so in War Theatre you can upgrade your party with gold you’ll collect after levels which will allow you to unlock new perks etc… and customize your army and playstyle.
This game is closer to my past turn-based strategies like Desert Ashes on PS Vita, but this time you will have hero units, as you can see in the screenshot above. Those who have played Plague Road might remember the look of this nurse — it’s set in the same world as Plague Road, but hundreds of years later.
Manufactured Beauty will not be shown at PSX this year, but we wanted to announce it ahead of time since it connects to all the games on this list.
We’re aiming for this to be be the western game that really pushes the limits of PS Vita.
You play as Mr Cuddles, a mechanical rabbit who awakens in this mysterious city made out of leftovers of the world. The game is a 3D platformer with adventure game elements. You will find other mechanical animals that also have no recollection of their life before and that have created their own society within the ruins. It will be up to you to discover the purpose of all these leftover animals.
