Psychoban HD gets set loose on November
Once we recovered from our month-long release party,
cleared up dozens of vodka and gin bottles, pried smelly pizza slices from fans and ceilings,
we got immediately to work to make our game even better… Actually that was after going to court and pay
a hefty fine for a number of misdemeanors completely unrelated to our celebration activities – not worth mentioning any details here.
Our stellar puzzler gets bigger, sharper and nuttier!
Au contraire of what is accustomed in the industry, we DID pay attention to what gamers had to say
about Psychoban – and boy did that gave us a lot to work on!
A lot of time has been spent on level tuning, tile surface flickering elimination, assets re exporting and
countless bugs. But of course, prettying the game up a bit was not enough to justify a whole HD port – we needed
to add something else for the LD fans who just didn’t have enough.
Psychoban HD not only has lots of original new content, but actual new mechanics. The Temple Challenge expansion introduces the
feared CrushCrate, a new type of crate that cannot be piled – lest you want to utterly smash a whole column!
Many comments regarding losing conditions and general difficulty have been addressed. For instance, those who do not
get along with an easy paced gameplay will feel right at home with the new “Timed” mode.
Our pointless postcards reward system was discarded, and a new series of original comic strips has been put in place. The strips illustrate the
characters and setting in a new light, with new situations and lots of comedy.
We felt that characters could use some extra expresiveness, and created custom portrait expressions to further
highlight their mood. Frank Noble is specially proud of Mental Dude’s array of expressions for ignorance, dullness, derangement and confusion.
All the settings, textures and decorations have been revamped and riveted for your pleasure, especially those pesky low-res blood stains!
A better camera
Experience the HD version of Psychoban in perspective (no more isometric view) and enjoy the new top-view camera as another option.
Game Center support for iPad with iOS 4.2. Compete with your friends in the timed mode or just relax a enjoy the trip with the classic game mode.
And much more
We are working to Psychoban HD a definitive good option for iPad users, wether they got to know it from LD or just got it for they brand new iPad.
