You want robots, sci-fi, battles and VR? Velocity 2X and Tiny Trax studio announces next project
“It’s a metaphor for our studio”, says award-winning Brighton firm
Award-winning Brighton studio Futurlab has revealed its next release – Mini-Mech Mayhem for PSVR.
Futurlab is keeping its cards close to its chest regarding full details of the game, but Mini-Mech Mayhem is a robot battle game, where you play the big buddy and your Mini-Mech partner is the little buddy.
Futurlab enjoyed a hit with its debut PSVR title Tiny Trax this summer, which followed the firm’s critically-acclaimed best seller, Velocity 2X.
Mini-Mech Mayhem will be released in 2018, with further details to follow.
FuturLab is also significantly bolstering its development team for the project, including hiring a Technical Director and several programmers.
“Your Mini-Mech is full of enthusiasm, passion and incredible power, but sometimes, amongst all the mayhem, this little buddy loses sight of the big picture,” explains Futurlab MD James Marsden.
“So you’re there to guide your Mini-Mech buddy to success. Any mistakes along the way can be chalked up as a learning experience, and over time you’ll trust each other, achieving many wonderful and hilarious victories together.”
“Mini-Mech Mayhem sees us return to our passion of sci-fi,” added Marsden. “Having made our debut on PSVR with Tiny Trax, we’ve learnt a lot about the format and we’re looking forward to putting these new skills to work in Mini-Mech Mayhem soon.
“We also see Mini-Mech Mayhem as a metaphor for our studio. Futurlab is PlayStation’s little buddy and we, in turn, play the role of a big buddy to our staff.
“Just as PlayStation cares about fostering our creativity, by helping us explore new ideas, we foster the creativity in our team. We shield their passionate enthusiasm from the turbulent mayhem of the games industry, so they can create something they care about, at a pace of challenge that is manageable.
“We can’t wait to share more information about Mini-Mech Mayhem. Until then, please let your friends know we’re hiring!”
