Building upon our 2010 Triple IGF Finalist browser game "Rocketbirds: Revolution!" and the stereoscopic 3D "Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken" for the PlayStation®3, it has been fun creating this PlayStation®Vita version and utilizing a lot of the PS Vita's awesome features!

When it came time to put together the launch trailer, it made me realize that apart from the sweet screen tilting (and other great features), the game's often overlooked feature is actually that the PS Vita is so darned portable, allowing people to play the game anywhere - so we really wanted for the launch trailer to somehow show it this time round (Rocketbirds Style) - and use one of the sweet instrumental remixes from New World Revolution, which is also in the game, to accompany it.

For those of you who are reading about this title for the first time, in this game, you’ll take control of Hardboiled Chicken, the original Cock of War (a chicken so tough, he survived being boiled as a fetus), to lead the rebellion against the draconian penguin oppressors to overthrow their hold on Albatropolis! - It’s an old-school Cinematic Action Adventure set in the Rocketbirds universe, a world filled with some despicable and often violent birds.

We’ve also built out a 2 player Co-operative campaign with a story all its own and six characters to choose from, which we’ve named the dirty half dozen. Play as pint-sized Budgie commandos on an entirely different mission to save the general’s bird-napped daughter. Of course, you’ll be able to connect with a friend via Online or Ad-Hoc mode for cooperative play.

The game also sports Jetpaction, Stab-Action in the new Hardboiled Difficulty setting, mind controlling Brainbugs, some pretty nifty PS Vita controls and counter tilting screens and sweet, sweet Music Videos set to the tunes of the Sci-Fi Rock band, New World Revolution.

Yes, it’s on the PS Vita, which means you can play Rocketbirds anywhere except under the sea. Whether you’re guarding a Penguin fortress, or waiting for your train, we very much hope you’ll appreciate that!

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken for PS Vita is available exclusively on PSN for USD 9.99 / EUR 7.99 (GBP 6.49) and if you own the PS3 version of the game, you’ll be able to unlock both Budgie Commando characters (Sniper Budgie and Agent-H Budgie Commando) for the Co-operative campaign as well!

We’ve jam packed this title with awesomeness and polished the heck out of it – so grab your handheld, strap on your jetpack – let’s start a revolution!
