Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

New raft of indies announced, welcome Axiom Verge

Sony has had some smorgasbord indie event in the States, and now the latest batch of titles have been officially unwrapped. Out of a dozen games, only two are for the Vita, which is a slightly worrying trend as the indie herd inevitably move onto the more successful platform.

Already covered is space adventure Drifter from Celsius which looks one of the best, but we also have a classic arcade shooter in the form of Axiom Verge from Tom Happ, a retro-styled 2D “Metroidvania” action-adventure, inspired by such classics as Rygar, Contra, Bionic Commando and others with a focus on the glitches and bugs of those games and turning them into a core gameplay feature.
