We still have a ways to go before Guacamelee is a finished product, but it’s great to get kudos like this to let us know we’re on the right track.
Would you like a closer look at the creative process here at Drinkbox Studios? Then take some time to watch Augusto and Graham chat it up in the short video we made for our 2012 Indiecade nomination.
Wow! What a year it has been! Way back in February, we pushed Mutant Blobs Attack out of our office and into your Playstation Vita. It received a tremendous reception as a console launch title. The metacritic gods were kind to us as we were consistently number two on the list for best games on the system early on in the year. The game also got consistently positive user reviews, so thanks guys!
So thanks for buying, playing, and expressing how much you enjoyed Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack! It really means a lot to us! Aaaand if you don’t have a Vita, you can get it on Steam for $1.99 during the winter sale.
I’m on a special top secret assignment from Drinkbox Studios that requires me to live 5 days ahead of everyone else. So for me, right now the date is Monday, November 19th, and, man, do I have great news. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 was amazing! Well worth the wait. I can’t believe that thing with Edward though, what a bummer.
So, by now you’ve probably heard that PlayStation Plus is coming to the Vita. I can confirm that this is true, time travelers honour. In case you missed out on the details, PlayStation Plus subscribers in North America will be able add Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack to their Playstation Vita game library for free on the 19th, European subscribers will be able to do so on the 21st. Not only will PS+ subscribers get Mutant Blobs Attack, you’ll also get a whackload of other cool games and discounts and exclusives. You should check PlayStation Plus out for yourself if you haven’t already.
As for me, I’ve got to hop on my hoverboard and get to Jodie Foster’s birthday party. Peace out!
This year during the Steam Hallowe’en Sale, you can get Mutant Blobs Attack for half off the usual price. That’s amounts to pennies – three hundred and ninety nine pennies to be exact. The sale starts TODAY and ends on November the 1st.
Well, our neighbors on the in interweb over at Polygon would have you believe it’s ridiculous things such as in depth, thoughtful articles on gaming, or even above average amusing podcasts like the Besties. The absolute gall. Here at Drinkbox, we’d like to really educate you on Polygons the Guacamelee! way:
Wait? What are the remaining names?! Well – this is a great time to start learning about Spanish (your responsibility), and Guacamelee! (our responsibility):
Tonight, for one night only, you can play Mutant Blobs Attack at the opening night of the inaugural Toronto After Darkcade at Pauper’s Pub as a part of the Toronto After Dark Film Fest! Conveniently located across the street from The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, you can join other sci-fi/horror/monster movie fans and filmmakers at the festival’s first of many pub nights this Hallowe’en season. The festivities start at 6:45pm with the screening of Grabbers and then American Mary. After the films, starting at 11:30 pm, the Darkcade gets underway on the second floor of the bar.
We would like to thank the people at Toronto After Darkcade, especially Alex Bethke, for putting this all together and including Mutant Blobs Attack! We’re excited to be a part of it, and hope to see you there!
