Legendary game developer Eugene Jarvis (the man behind Defender, Robotron, Smash-Tv…) is combining forces with the Housemarque team (RESOGUN, Dead Nation, Super Stardust HD/Delta, Alienation) to develop a game. This is Eugene’s first co-operation with an outside game developer since working with Midway Games (Cruis’n USA, 1994). A quote from the man himself:

“When I saw RESOGUN I couldn’t believe how these Housemarque guys took Defender to a new level. I wondered… what would happen if we teamed up? Mash up old school arcade with mad voxel tech and crazed nouveau Helsinki gamers… All I know now is that it is going to be explosive”.

Helldivers is set to crash land on March 3rd. The sci-fi top down shooter which is being developed by Arrowhead Studios is set in a satirical dystopian future where mankind is ruled by a managed democracy and will be a Playstation 4 exclusive.

Indie darling, Limbo is now available for Android devices. The puzzle platform which was originally released in 2010 can be experiened in all its monchromatic glory via the Google Play store.
