Back in 2014, renowned developer Insomniac Games released a whacky open world game for the Xbox One console. 4 years later and the game finally came to PC as well, and has since amassed a cult following of fans. Even though Insomniac is now owned by Sony, the original director of the game says they would love to make a sequel.
While it can often seem a little like Facebook is distancing itself a little from the gaming capabilities of Oculus, they’re still throwing their ill-gotten gains around on some big budget titles to bring to their Oculus Store.
I’d pretty much given up on ever seeing Sunset Overdrive outside of Microsoft’s box of tricks that is the Xbox One, but I’ve given been given fresh shoots of hope from developer Insomniac Games after they said they would love to port it over.
Insomniac, they of Ratchet & Clank, Resistance and Sunset Overdrive fame, are set to release their first ever multi platform title this week. Song of the Deep is a metroidvania-style sidescrolling action-adventure game set entirely underwater, and it’s coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on July 12th. It’s joined by a launch trailer showing off its lush aquatic environs.
Steam might have eliminated flash sales and dailies from the equation, but GOG is remaining ever ruthless with our free time with the return of the latest Insomnia sale. The Sleepy Sheep Insomnia Sale is running from right now until stock has depleted on all the games on sale.
Insomniac Games have taken me a bit by surprise and announced Song of the Deep. Which I suspect is a lot less controversial than the similarly-monikered Song of the South. The Edge of Nowhere, Resistance: Fall of Man and Sunset Overdrive developer has taken a bit of a left-turn and revealed it’s working on a 2D Metroidvania game.
Insomniac Games took to the stage during the Oculus Rift presentation for a surprise game reveal. The developer’s next title will be Edge of Nowhere - A VR Adventure, an adventure game creative exclusively for the Oculus Rift.
Insomniac Games, fresh from its success on Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive, has jumped ship once more with Ratchet & Clank, coming to PlayStation 4 in 2016. With the name you may be thinking we’ve got a reboot on our hands, but this is actually a game of the upcoming Ratchet & Clank movie, which itself was based on the original Ratchet & Clank 2002 game. Got your head around that?
