Awesomenauts Assemble right now is basically a pre-Starstorm iteration

After a series of delays the PS4 version of Awesomenauts is finally here, albeit slightly behind the PC version in terms of content. For starters, you won't find the newest character Ted McPain anywhere, nor will you fin...

Ronimo announces Wii U-only Swords & Soldiers II

While I'm a huge Awesomenauts fan first and foremost, I also got a kick out of Ronimo Games' prior release, Swords & Soldiers. It is one of those sidescrolling real-time strategy titles where you send your troops to the ...

Awesomenauts Assemble! to arrive on PS4 March 4 photo
Awesomenauts Assemble! to arrive on PS4 March 4
by Conrad Zimmerman

My favorite online multiplayer game is finally going to land on PlayStation 4 next week, as Awesomenauts Assemble! releases on PlayStation Network. The title releases in North America on March 4 for $9.99, with a European release on the following day.

As an avid Awesomenauts player, the arrival of the PS4 version brings with it mixed feelings. The original console releases were great fun, until the Steam version rendered them obsolete with a steady stream of new content and balance tweaks. Now comes Assemble!, already behind the curve, with portions of the Kickstarted Starstorm DLC content already in the wild on Steam and numerous balance and gameplay shifts having been made in adjustment to that.

It still calls to me. Maybe it's a desire for a simpler time before Ted McPain and his goddamn shotgun completely countered my melee strategy with Gnaw. Or when aggressive Voltars were as rare as they were dangerous (they're all just dangerous now). And maybe it's a little bit that I want to play more stuff I love on the PS4. Doesn't matter if it's a time capsule, I want to play it all the same.

Play Awesomenauts for free this week on Steam

Awesomenauts: Starstorm is one of the few Kickstarters I've backed. It's no secret that I'm a fan of the core game, and I'm hardly the only one on staff, either, but it's something I feel compelled to share. The campaign is s...

The future of Awesomenauts is looking pretty awesome photo
The future of Awesomenauts is looking pretty awesome
by Chris Carter

It's common knowledge that it's tough to be an indie studio -- especially if you're running a competitive online multiplayer title. Despite the fact that your game may have across-the-board rave reviews, maintaining a community, constantly developing new content, and figuring out ways to monetize is incredibly hard. Ronimo Games is going through that with Awesomenauts right now.

To help Ronimo stay independent, they've launched a Kickstarter that at the time of this writing is doing quite well, nearly breaking $100,000 in just a few days. But the studio has a lot of work to do starting with the PlayStation 4 version of their game -- a version that's now launching with the console, by the way!
