- FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden
has revealed their new space shooter Velocity today alongside details of getting it free at launch via PlayStation Plus.
To quote: I'm here today to show you our awesome new teleportation shoot 'em-up that is packed with innovative features - and it's a game that YOU named!
We had hundreds of entries, which we were very grateful for, and settled on 'VELOCITY', as it described the concept and gameplay very well - and is a cool word!
Here at FuturLab
we don't think it is good enough to churn out cloned games. We wanted to do justice to the nostalgia of early games in the shoot 'em-up genre, so that people can pick up Velocity and feel right at home, but also feel the excitement of playing something completely new!
After many months prototyping, we knew we had something special with Velocity - the teleporting mechanics had never been done before - so we wanted a big sound to complement the gameplay experience.
We are therefore incredibly excited that Joris de Man, the award winning composer that wrote and produced the music for Killzone 2 & 3, has co-written and co-produced the music for Velocity!
So it sounds incredible and is a genuine, high quality homage to the classic...
