TRANSMISSIONS FROM THE VENUSIAN HEART: CAPSULE & GUN GODZ, Revealed!
Hey folks! So, today, consumer blog Joystiq got the drop with the first hands-on look at two of the Venus Patrol-exclusive games, AdamAtomic's CAPSULE (with sound design by Robin 'DEEP SEA' Arnott) and Vlambeer's GUN GODZ!
While they're still not quite ready for public consumption, the site attended our aforementioned party last weekend, where we had a few demo stations for the people of Austin to give each game a quick whirl, before falling in love all over again with JOUST, and ultimately watching Disasterpeace & his drummer Reckahdam (himself an indie developer & compiler of the recent Zelda tribute album) completely kill it with their live rendition of the FEZ soundtrack.
You can find the full writeup and more information over at Joystiq, along with a small handful of new screenshots for both games.
Elsewhere today, you can find a bunch of Venus Patrol-related love over at Destructoid's Best of 2011: Industry Picks feature, where folks like Double Fine's Greg Rice, AdamAtomic & Vlambeer's Rami Ismail themselves & more give shoutouts not just to the website itself, but to JOHANN SEBASTIAN JOUST (which most of you will understand why it's been buzzing as a year's best) and even a nod to our local Austin indie community JUEGOS RANCHEROS.
Hope everyone's gearing up for a fantastic holidays -- for my part, especially now with weeks of party-planning stress now out of the way, I've been working even over the usual overtime on a number of amazing VP & related initiatives for the new year, including, obviously, the actual launch, and hopefully also a nice holiday surprise for everyone. More on that soon!
