Ninjustice  



Ninjustice is like Viewtiful Joe and Alien Hominid's strange love child


12:00 AM on 06.05.2014



Ninjustice has a lot of style. It looks like something you might get if you tossed Alien Hominid and Viewtiful Joe in a blender, then topped off the strange concoction with a dash of Tomena Sanner for good measure. It's just so delightfully bizarre. 

There's also a pretty cool story behind the project. It came about thanks to a contest run by Playism, the publisher behind titles like Astebreed and Kero Blaster, challenging students at game design university HAL Osaka to build a full game before graduation. The reward? Free localization and publishing. Nice.

The HAL students were also given the opportunity to work alongside some high profile Japanese indie developers, including La-Mulana director Takumi Naramura, Cave Story creator Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya, and One Way Heroics developer Smoking Wolf. Along with the staff at Playism, these familiar names helped provide feedback throughout the development process.

At the end two winners were chosen, one of which happens to be team Sakura Fubuki's Ninjustice. Interested in trying it out? Well you needn't wait to long. It will be available via the Playism Store this Friday, June 6 for $2.99.

Ninjustice is coming on June 6th! [Playism]

Review: Axiom Verge

It seems like a foregone conclusion when looking at Axiom Verge that comparisons are going to be made to Metroid. It is, without doubt, similar in more ways than it differs from Nintendo's iconic franchise. The differences matter, though, and Axiom Verge merges classic environment design with new mechanical twists, producing a game that feels both familiar and fresh at the same time.more
