We’re working on a review for Super Toy Cars so I got in touch with Eclipse Games to talk about the game’s development and release for the Nintendo Switch.
PS4Blog: Hi Eduardo! Good to have you back with us at PS4blog.net! How have you been?
Hi, Glad to be back around here! I’ve been quite busy as of lately myself. We’ve ported Tachyon Project and Super Toy Cars to the Switch, I worked on Vesta (out on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch), and we’re now working on porting Spheroids, as well as on a game we haven’t announced yet. I think you could say I’ve had plenty to do during these last few months (and I still have quite a bit to do). I’m not sure I can complain about that though!
Spheroids is a fun 2D platformer currently available for Sony platforms. It’s a charming release with plenty of action that will grab you as soon as you start playing. I was pleasantly surprised with what the game has to offer! Want to learn more? Then read our Spheroids review!
Eclipse Games is ready to launch Spheroids on PlayStation 4 tomorrow! This will be a Cross-Buy release, so buying it on PS4 will give you access to the Vita version, and vice-versa. Check out the game’s trailer below and click after the break for some new screens and information!
We’ll soon be bringing your a review for Spheroids from Eclipse Games, so we got in touch with the indie studio to talk a bit about the game they’re releasing this week for PS4 and PS Vita.
PS4Blog: Welcome to PS4blog.net! Could you please help us get started by presenting yourself to our reader and telling them a bit about your work?
My name is Eduardo Jimenez. I’ve been in the games industry for a while now (over 12 years) and worked in AAA games such as Pure, Split Second and Disney Infinity. A few years ago I decided to try luck on my own with a couple of guys and formed Eclipse Games. We started Eclipse Games to try to do fun games that were – sometimes – inspired by old games we enjoyed and loved back in the day, but that haven’t seen substantial remakes or updates.
Since the creation of Eclipse Games we have published a few games: LightFish, a small game inspired in QiX (a classic game!) which has some nice mechanics that, IMO, haven’t been explored as much as they should; Super Toy Cars, a racing game inspired by the old MicroMachines releases but with some changes and innovations of our own; Tachyon Project, a dual stick shooter inspired by Geometry Wars but with a story and some nice gameplay twists; and finally, Spheroids which we’ve already released on Wii U and which will be out on PS4 and PS Vita this week.
