Nicalis on Raven's jump to Vita, new color man and more


7:30 PM on 09.13.2013



In a hidden red room just outside of the main PAX show floor, many wonderous new videogames could be found. Nicalis was showing Aban Hawkins and the 1,001 Spikes, VVVVVV, and Legend of Raven (formerly known as Yatagarasu) on Sony consoles. 

Having played the game on the Vita, I can see why Nicalis decided to move the game over to Sony's handheld, though that didn't stop me from asking Nicalis's Tyrone Rodreguez exactly why the game changed platformed. There's also some talk of what it's like to work with Sony and Nintendo (fun), the semi-sequel to Yatagarasu that's in the works (Nicalis would love to help port it down the line), and a tease of who may be providing in-game color commentary in the English language version of the game (Smeth). 

You also get to hear me sound stupid while I try to talk to a man and play a fighting game for the first time, so that's cool.

Conflicks has a great alternate history setup with anachronistic space colonialism

Did you know that Leonardo da Vinci discovered MetaMatter? Well, not in real life, but in the universe of Conflicks he did. It turns out all it takes is to separate a chicken egg's yolk from its albumen, and to heat up the y...more

I'm afraid not enough people will play Hohokum

Hohokum isn't an easily described game. It's one of those cases where it's not until you try it for yourself that you fully grasp the appeal, which can be a tough sell. Yeah, the whimsical art direction is terrific, but the ...more
