Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Sunflowers hitting PS Vita this week

Game Atelier launches the brightest looking Vita game yet with Sunflowers out this week on (I'm assuming the EU) PSN which, alongside the free Ecolibrium, makes this week a pretty good one. The deceptively simple looking flower raising game should be a perfect reminder of summer, if you had one, as winter draws on.

It will be available as a trial version and plays with the Vita held upright. More information on the game here. Hopefully the price will be similar to the iOS version which releases around the same time, and not some Plants vs. Zombies-like overpricing madness.

UPDATE: The price is a lovely €2.99 for two worlds and 330 flowers, guess there will be some DLC too. Also, a US PSN release will be announced soon.

Game Atelier brought Flying Hamster to the PSP as a mini and its next game, Gauge, will be for iOS, hopefully if Sunflowers does well on Vita, the team will continue to support it.

  2. Zen Pinball 2 also uses vertical mode as an option, but this is the first portrait-only game I can think of, unless there are some old-school Japanese shooters out there.
