I hate summer. Man's natural state, as far as I'm concerned, is not one spent constantly sticking to oneself, one's clothing, one's loved ones, passing vehicles, or anything else.
Flame Over isn't just another roguelike - although it definitely is another roguelike. There are procedural environments, for sure, and there's the constant, hovering fear of a punishing defeat, but what marks this particular game out is your role, and the enemies you're up against. In Flame Over, as you might have guessed, you're a fireman, and your ultimate foe is fire itself.
PlayStation Plus' Instant Game Collection - i.e. free bonus games for subscribers - will include Galak-Z and Broforce for PS4 come 1st March.
Laughing Jackal, the UK studio behind the OMG Zombies games, has unveiled its upcoming PlayStation Vita exclusive Flame Over.
In a post over at the PlayStation Blog senior producer Alasdair Evans described the game as a procedurally-generated fire-fighting roguelike drenched in a cartoon art style.
It features twin-stick controls and fast-paced gameplay, as well as permadeath and dynamic fire that burns and spreads.
