Hot off the press!  Pure Chess makes it’s next generation debut this month, April 15th/16th to be precise!

Our new game, Backgammon Blitz!

November 13, 2013 |  by  |  Backgammon  |  Comments Off

Just because we’ve been quiet for a while, don’t think we’ve been resting on our collective laurels here at VooFoo Towers. The truth is, we’ve boarded the office door shut and have been working around the clock (literally for some of us!) to get our next project ready for release. The new game is called Backgammon Blitz and will be in the hands of PlayStation 3, 4 and PSVita owners before the white bearded guy in a red suit arrives!

Backgammon Blitz brings the ancient game of tactics and skill to the masses, while looking as pretty as a picture to boot. No light-map has been left unturned, no rendering technique unexplored to make Backgammon Blitz look as stunningly lifelike as possible (we asked the artists if they could go better than lifelike, but that just made them grumpy..).

You’ll be playing against friends, both online and locally as well as challenging A.I. opponents with skill levels from Beginner to Grand Master. That’s not all, as well as the traditional game we’ve decided to add a VooFoo twist in what we’re calling Blitz mode. In this you’ll be freezing opponents in ice, playing Joker cards to get out of sticky situations and even setting fire to the dice!

So that’s it, our big announcement. If you’re a master Backgammon player or have never even heard of the game, you’re going to love our interpretation of the classic battle of wits and cunning. Keep an eye out for further announcements closer to launch!

Free Big Sky Infinity Content!

March 5, 2013 |  by  |  Big Sky Infinity  |  Comments Off

We’ve had a great start to the year with Big Sky Infinity getting over 200,000 downloads (and counting) and as such we wanted to give all our players a big thank you, as well as give even more reason for more people to get the game.

So today we are releasing a free content patch containing a bucket load of completely fresh content as well as a bunch of improvements to the game.

The trailer shows hints at the new mad stuff, and here’s a list to get you right in the mood for space fighting:

3 new bosses – Giant Crab Boss, Meteor Ship Boss and Scrapyard Boss
2 new enemies – Trailer and Fogger
6 new black hole enemies – Vikings, Ninjas, Zombies, Pirates, Ghosts and Chaos
4 new events – Parallel Cascade, Laser Levels, Portals and Minefield

We are continuing to offer Cross-Buy on Big Sky Infinity so getting the game on Vita will get you the PlayStation 3 version for free, and vice versa.

Big Sky Infinity already boasts cloud saving, 4 player local multiplayer on PS3, asynchronous multiplayer on Vita, the ability to compete against friends or world high scores even when offline and randomly generated gameplay so you never play the same game twice – the patch (on-top of all this) is certain to knock your galactic socks off!

Big Sky Infinity is available to download now on the PlayStation Store.
