Charlie Knight of Charlie?s Games has announced that Son of Scoregasm, their latest ?super amazing game? will be coming to the PS Vita very soon.
The game is a sequel to the 2011 twin stick shooter Scoregasm. This new game is said to be a refinement of the previous iteration and takes the best bits of the predecessor while improving the rest. Instead of the genre?s typical survival based gameplay, the new game moves players through a series of interlinking, nonlinear levels. The whole point of the game is to shoot, score points and zip past traps as you create your own path towards the game?s end.
Charlie Knight was originally a PC developer, but his career towards PlayStation began with Twitter. It started when Developer Andy White mentioned him to Shahid Ahmad, senior business development manager at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. Ahmad happened to be a fan of the original Scoregasm game and checked in with Knight to see if he would be interested on a PlayStation Vita version.
Knight mentioned that: ?I’ve not worked on a console before, so I?said yes to his offer?. He also went on to say that: ?I met Shahid a few weeks ago, and it turns out he saw me making a fool of myself being interviewed on stage at an event in London just prior to?Scoregasm‘s release, had bought the game afterwards, and also had an email conversation with me about what I’d used to write the game. I had no idea!?
It?s an interesting turn of events and helps port the game on to another platform as a starting point. Son of Scoregasm will support leaderboards and Trophies on the PS Vita and the game is also in development for Linux, Mac, and the Windows PC platform. Preorders of the game on these 3 platforms are already up on Charlie?s Games official website. Knight also mentioned that these versions will be available shortly after the PS Vita release.
Here’s a preview of the game in action.
For those who are interested to get the original Scoregasm game, it is still available on Steam for $4.99 for both Mac and Windows PC.
