PS4 Racer Ready to Run Hits a Speed Bump

Beatshapers busy with other projects

Ukrainian developer Beatshapers had already been working on Ready to Run for a while when we spoke to the studio in February, but it doesn't sound like the remote control racer will be ready for release any time soon. With its ongoing virtual reality experiments, along with continued work on streaming sho

This PS4 Virtual Reality Title Is About a Man and a Giant Robot

A boy and his bot

Sony announced Project Morpheus really early so that developers could experiment with it, and that’s exactly what Ukrainian outfit Beatshapers has been up to. In addition to building its very own virtual reality headset out of the PlayStation Vita, the firm has also been busy beavering away on a title for the Japanese giant’s...

How One Developer Turned a PS Vita into a Virtual Reality Headset

Thinking outside of the box

Beatshapers, the indie outfit behind recent PlayStation 4 streaming interaction title #killallzombies, is a PlayStation stalwart at this point. The small Ukrainian company has released 21 titles across various Sony systems to date, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. We previously revealed the company’s...

Review: #killallzombies (PlayStation 4)

#killallzombies (PlayStation 4)

Social media suicide

We all know that the zombie apocalypse is coming, but gamers should have had enough practice by now to survive beyond doomsday. What’s next for a world littered with corpses, then?

The former is reserved almost exclusively for smartphone-fuelled exercises in mediocrity, while the latter is usually deployed only in the hardest of hardcore horror games.

Honk your horn if you're happy

We’re still very much in the PlayStation 4’s honeymoon period, which means that every piece of software announced for the next generation system is generating colossal amounts of consumer enthusiasm. That’s not to say that Beatshapers’ upcoming remote controlled racer Ready to Run is undeserving of the...

Review: Furmins (PlayStation Vita)

Furmins (PlayStation Vita)

Fuzzy feeling

Furmins is likely to feel familiar. It's a mixture of Lemmings and Cut the Rope: a physics based puzzler that challenges you to construct a passage for the titular creatures to roll through, all while collecting sweets, avoiding death, and reaching the goal in a fast enough time to gain three stars. These stars can then be used to...

StarDrone Extreme Scraps Premium Level Skip DLC

Extremely generous

Cast your mind back to our StarDrone Extreme review and you may recall us being a bit miffed at the game’s implementation of DLC. The Vita puzzle title essentially allowed you to skip difficult stages for £0.79 — an additional cost that felt a bit forced. Thankfully, developer Beatshapers has responded to the criticism and...
