Either a benefit or a hazard
Bloober Team is a fascinating developer. The Polish outfit has released a couple of games this generation: its first, Basement Crawl, was so poorly received that it had to be remade, and was reborn as Brawl. Its follow-up to this was Layers of Fear, a Victorian-themed horror title about painting, and it remains one of...
Layers of Fear developer Bloober Team has revealed that its next title, cyberpunk horror Observer, will launch on the PlayStation 4 on 15th August. The game, set in 2084, will see you assume the role of a neural detective, and will find you entering the thoughts of suspects in order to solve crimes. In other words, you’re quite...
We liked psychological walking sim Layers of Fear, so we're up for a few more hours poking around the protagonist's painterly house from the viewpoint of his daughter. Perspective was the key theme in this game, so it should be interesting to see how the eyes of a child twist and contort things even more. The expansion's out on 2nd...
As a Virgo, this author is all too familiar with the perils of perfectionism. Layers of Fear is a brilliant, brief psychological thriller which asks one very poignant question: how far is too far? Heavily inspired by Oscar Wilde's iconic turn-of-the-century novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, this meticulously designed vignette puts...
What of Art? It is a malady
Oscar Wilde's iconic The Picture of Dorian Gray appears to have served as one of the key inspirations behind Layers of Fear, a forthcoming horror game from, well, Bloober Team. It's true that the Polish outfit doesn't exactly have the best track record on the PlayStation 4, but it's talking a good game here: its...
The dark below
Hands up if you remember Basement Crawl? The curious Bomberman-inspired PlayStation 4 exclusive from Bloober Team attained a reasonable amount of attention due to it being one of the first next-gen titles to deploy in 2014. The final product left a lot to be desired, however, prompting it to earn a miserable Metascore of just 27. Not...
Bloober Team remaking the title for free
Basement Crawl was in such a dire state when it deployed on the PlayStation 4 a few months back that Sony actually had to provide people with refunds for the atrocity. What was originally billed as a dark twist on Bomberman turned out to be an utter mess, with
Look the other way
There’ll be no time to dry your tears this year, as Polish developer Bloober Team has announced another horror title, which is currently pegged for PC and next-gen systems – presumably including the PlayStation 4. Scopophobia – which is a real world fear pertaining to the idea of being looked at – is billed as an...
Bloober Team aims to rectify blooper
We don’t think that any developer intentionally sets out to make a bad product, but Bloober Team’s dark Bomberman-inspired arena battler Basement Crawl launched in the worst state imaginable. We didn’t actually get around to reviewing the game, simply because we couldn't get it to work at first. However,...
Developer finally found the key
Fans of madcap multiplayer experiences similar to Bomberman will be excited to learn that Basement Crawl is set to take the short journey upstairs to the PlayStation 4 next week. Despite being ready to deploy then delayed day
Polish outfit committed to PlayStation platforms
Bloober Team may have delayed its upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Basement Crawl at the very last minute, but that’s not stopping the Polish production house from working through the preliminary stages of a new next generation project. Marketing manager Aron Cender confirmed the snippet in an
What lurks beneath?
For a title that was originally intended to launch alongside the PlayStation 4 in November, we didn’t learn a whole lot about Basement Crawl until a couple of weeks ago. The release – a maze-based multiplayer affair starring creepy clowns and telepathic teddy bears – has been described as a mix of Bomberman and Twisted...
Clown and out
We don’t know about you, but we were itching to play PlayStation 4 exclusive Basement Crawl this week. Polish developer Bloober Team attached a 29th January release date to the Bomberman meets Twisted Metal multiplayer mash-up recently, but the game was nowhere to be found in
Crawlin' in the dark
PlayStation 4 exclusive Basement Crawl may have missed its launch day release target by a couple of months, but the macabre Bomberman meets Twisted Metal multiplayer mash-up is poised to set fire to your next generation console this month in Europe. The Polish developer attached a 29th January deploy date to the title earlier...
With a game that’s billed as Bomberman meets the Bride of Chucky, you’d think that Polish developer Bloober Team would be more forthcoming about its upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Basement Crawl. The arena-based multiplayer game was originally pegged as a next-gen launch title, but seems to have slipped into 2014...
Pray before playing
The A-Men have returned to challenge your deductive skills in another set of devilishly difficult combat scenarios. The rouge robot army that you accidentally unleashed in the original title is still at large, and it’s up to you and your squad of specialists to eradicate them – or perhaps just skirt around them as you get to...
Beware of the outdoors
Bloober Team’s upcoming PlayStation 4 title Basement Crawl promises a blend of Bomberman and Twisted Metal – but even with that intriguing concept, we weren’t prepared for this terrifying teaser trailer. Backed by a poignant piano score, it depicts a grand-daughter discussing the outdoors with her soon-to-be-murdered...
Bloober Team's multiplayer title looks utterly bonkers
If there’s been any criticism of the PlayStation 4, it’s that its launch lineup is a little bit familiar. Games like Killzone: Shadow Fall and inFAMOUS: Second Son may look great, but they’re not necessarily doing anything different – other than pushing unimaginable numbers of polygons,...
Quit clowning around
Bloober Team, the Polish developer behind the outrageously unforgiving PlayStation Vita launch title A-Men, is cooking up another day one release for a second Sony platform – this time the weird and wonderful Basement Crawl for the PlayStation 4. Despite announcing the title earlier today – alongside a target launch time...
Amen to that
The PlayStation Vita’s launch line-up is already bulging at the seams, but apparently there’s still room for a little one in the collection. Speaking on the PlayStation Blog, Bloober Team has revealed A-Men, a retro title that will sate your “cravings for tactical play”. The game’s inspired by retro titles such as Lemmings,...
Bloober Team, the developer responsible for the charming Paper Wars: Cannon Fodder on the PSN says it is currently developing a launch title for the NGP. The studio was also responsible for the tactical PSP Mini Future Fight. Let’s hope this NGP title comes along quicker than Bloober Team's "Zombies on a Plane” horror title...
