Square Heroes released on PS4

After many months of hard work, last Tuesday we finally shipped Square Heroes on PS4. It’s available right now in the PlayStation Store, and the coolest part is that cross-platform online multiplayer is supported between PS4 and PC/Mac/Linux players. Check out the PlayStation Game listing. If you’re not a PS4 gamer, you can grab a copy (or 3) on Steam. It’s on sale until 6th March for $1.99 to celebrate the PS4 launch.

We’re showing Square Off on Windows Phone and OUYA, but most excitingly we’re unveiling Square Heroes to the public for the first time! Check out the press release for more info.

WP7Connect reviews Square Off

Read it here. No, really do, it’s a great review. The support that Hyde13 has shown us in the last month has been outstanding. First he posted about initial press release here. Then he sniffed out the news that we were about to release and posted about it here, with multiple updates. Not long after we released, he featured us in a piece about how some non-Xbox Live enabled WP7 titles were better than some that are Xbox Live enabled (read: ours is!). And finally he posted the wonderful review linked at the top of this post. Thanks WP7Connect!

WPCentral review goes live, with Cubeecraft!.

You can read the full review here. I recommend you do as it’s very thorough, but also fair. Paul also gave us some extremely valuable pre-release feedback that has led to significant improvements in the game. He raised things like improved ease of bomb throwing, more varied enemy colours and general improvements in the controls (including a critical bug). Much appreciated. We posted the video review that goes with this review before, but here it is again:
