24 Apr

Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine

Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine is a game about heists.  Assemble a crack team of thieves and execute the perfect crime.

The game, developed by indie game studio Pocketwatch Games, won the 2010 IGF Grand Prize as well as the award for Excellence in Design after only 15 weeks of work by one developer, Andy Schatz. Since then the team has grown and the game has been fleshed out on a much grander scale, with online multiplayer, multiple campaigns, a slick new art style, and tons of new playable characters, enemies, weapons, and traps.

The game is available from today on Steam, and an XBLA version has been announced for an any time soon release. In the meanwhile catch the official trailer.

The games has been released on Xbox LIVE last year (after almost five years of development) and it will hit Steam next May.

Obviously a lot of people is asking for a port on all kind of platforms, includind the last Nintendo console, the Wii U, that seems to be a perfect home for the 2D/3D indie platformer by Phil Fish’s Polytron. Yesterday our beloved Phil said something about a possible port of the game.

We seriously doubt too, but who knows…

That’s why we love PAX, if possible even more than E3 or TGS. We love it because indie developers get crazy and start to release announce an talk about new games.

So after Double Fine and Supergiant Games is Behemoth (the guts from Alien Hominid and Castle Crasher) turn to announce the release date for the long waited BattleBlock Theater!
 The platform game in which you can create your own character using various shapes will be out April 3rd 2013, on Xbox LIVE, for 1200 Microsoft Points. Obviously supporting co-op and multiplayer, and with the usual design we all like!

We honestly are thrilled and can’t wait to play this new game but we still have to wait for a bit… BUT, again, if you’re so lucky to be around Boston even Behemoth are waiting for you at PAX and you should be lucky enough to try BattleBlock Theater in advance.

Jet Set Radio Future was a fantastic game, receiving high scores from many critics, and an 87 Metacritic score. It was released on February 25, 2002, and was regarded as one of the best Xbox games ever released. We are all aware that the game did not sell very well, it was often ignored indeed…
