Indie game ‘Big Sky: Infinity’ coming to PlayStation 3 and Vita
Indie game developers Boss Baddie and VooFoo Studios have teamed up with publisher Ripstone to bring twin-stick shooter Big Sky: Infinity to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, having only been previously on PC.
Big Baddie is the developer who actually created the Big Sky series, but VooFoo studios are helping develop Infinity, most likely due to their knowledge of Sony products after having released two brilliant, well received games, Hustle Kings and Pure Chess.
In its move to Sony consoles, new features will be added to the fast paced, twin stick shooter such as new modes and enemies and in the Vita’s case, touch controls will be implemented.
Both developers are excited to be working on this game and only have good things to say about Ripstone:
James Whitehead, owner and lead developer of Boss Baddie enthuses: “We’re excited about the opportunities now available for the game so we can take it to the next level. It’s great to get input and support from industry veterans and the support Ripstone have provided has been invaluable.”
Mark Williams, Technology Director at VooFoo exclaims: “It is hugely exciting to be able to continue our collaboration with Ripstone, and join forces with the incredibly creative guys at Boss Baddie to bring the Big Sky series to the PlayStation Network. With the passion, enthusiasm and expertise of the three parties combined, we are well placed to deliver a world class game.”
Ripstone Ltd focus on the developer’s needs and their relationship with them to be able to help make great games and not let talent go to waste, according to Phil Gaskell, the co-founder and creative director of Ripstone.
“It’s great to be in a position where we can foster talent and enable Boss Baddie to further develop their dreams for the game.”
Let’s hope that this is a cross purchase as Hustle Kings was but, strangely, Pure Chess wasn’t. Psst, did you know we’re currently giving away copies of Pure Chess?
