    Review Fated: The Silent Oath

    Silent but deadly

    The launch of Sony's virtual reality headset served up an impressively strong start for the as-of-yet unproven technology. A large number of games, offering a rather impressive variety alongside some quality exclusives, made for an intriguing entry into the VR space. Unfortunately, since the exceptional launch, the PlayStation VR...

  • Hands On Outrunning a Giant in Fated: The Silent Oath on PlayStation VR

    The end of days

    There were a pretty large number of virtual reality games being shown off at PAX East. Some awesome things were being done with the headsets, but one of the games that we were most impressed with was Frima Studios' Fated: The Silent Oath. A narrative-focused VR game, Fated sees you assume the role of a mute man as he tries to...

    Review Chariot

    Chariots of fire

For those who aren’t familiar, the developer made the entertainment Young Thor and A Space Shooter for Two Bucks for PlayStation Minis.

    Review Nun Attack

    Mother superior firepower

    Much to Sony’s dismay, the PlayStation Vita has struggled since launch. There’s constant debate over what the handheld needs – does it need more AAA titles that really show off the hardware’s power, or does it just need more software in general? It’s a dilemma brought about by the vicious cycle of development...

    Review Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge

    Dead in the middle

    Real-time strategy games have always been difficult to execute on consoles. Without a mouse, scrolling over huge maps with an analogue stick is far harder than you may imagine, while assigning commands to various buttons on a controller leads to some haphazard control schemes. Enter Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov’s Revenge, a...

  • News Zombie Tycoon 2 Stumbles onto North American PlayStation Plus

    Enormous PlayStation All-Stars sale, too

    Dig out your gas masks, because Frima Studio’s undead strategy title Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov’s Revenge represents this week’s big new addition to the Instant Game Collection. PlayStation Plus subscribers in North America will be able to download the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions of the title without...

  • Interview Sharing Horror Stories with Zombie Tycoon 2's Frima Studio

    Dead walking

    There’s a little less than a month to wait until Professor Brainhov and his protégé Orville Tycoon do battle on PlayStation 3 and Vita. Canadian outfit Frima Studio – who you may remember from popular PlayStation Minis such as Widgets Odyssey and A Space Shooter for Two Bucks – is carefully applying the finishing touches to...

  • News Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov's Revenge Lurches onto PS3 and Vita on 30th April

    Stumbling into sight

    The sequel to Frima Studio’s popular PlayStation Minis release Zombie Tycoon will stumble onto the PlayStation 3 and Vita on 30th April in North America and 1st May in Europe.

  • News Lights, Camera, Party! Freshens Up PSN This Week

    Really strange

    You’d be forgiven for assuming that this Lights, Camera, Party! launch trailer is a family affair – but we’d encourage you to keep watching through to the end. Proceedings take a surreal twist right around the 1:30 mark. The game itself aims to be equally daft, promising 50 bonkers mini-games that take full advantage of the...

  • News Lights, Camera, Party! Brings Motion Madness to PSN

    Smooth moves

    We’re probably in the minority, but we love a good mini-game compilation. There’s something exhilarating about hopping between a host of madcap mechanics – even if the experience can end up feeling a bit shallow as a result. Frima Studio’s upcoming PlayStation Move-powered Lights, Camera, Party! looks to embody everything...

  • News Zombie Tycoon 2 Shuffles onto PS3 and Vita

    Eat flesh

    Adding to the tally of cross compatible PS3 and Vita titles, Canadian developer Frima Studio has officially raised the curtain on Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov’s Revenge. The sequel to 2009’s PlayStation Mini promises to expand upon the original’s silly sense of humour and real-time strategy gameplay. It will include new zombies, sharper...
