Confirmed: Explodemon! Blasting Its Way Onto PlayStation Network Q4 2010

Curve’s self-published puzzle-platformer to hit PS3 before year end

Curver Studios announced today that its 2.5D platform action game will be brought into the HD era with a bang and onto the PlayStation Network before the end of this year.

Explodemon! is heavily influenced by classic Japanese games from the golden era of the SNES. Players will use  Explodemon’s self-destructive nature to combat enemies and fly through the air, all the while solving a vast array of physics-based puzzles (and of course leaving wake of destruction and collateral damage behind).

The plot of the game is centered around the peaceful planet of Nibia being attacked by malicious Vortex forces, the fate of the star system is then thrust into the one pair of hands it shouldn’t be: the malfunctioning Guardian robot Explodemon. Your quest to repel the onslaught or Vortex forces and restore peace will take gamers across three distinct planets and over twelve levels, with new abilities and gameplay mechanics introduced throughout.

“We’re really excited to finally be able to reveal Explodemon! to the world,” explains design director Jonathan Biddle, from a blast-proof bunker somewhere below the surface of Nibia. “The game is chock full of gameplay nuggets carefully mined from the greatest titles ever to grace our joysticks. Whether you’re experiencing its intense combat, head-scratching puzzles, or classic platforming, you’ll find we’ve combined all of these elements into an addictive and elegantly balanced package.”

Explodemon! is unrelenting, hard-core brain-tickling action for those who grew up playing platformers, as well as those who’ll discover just how awesome they were.
