TWAIN HARTE, CA – February 4, 2015 – Green Lava Studios and Reverb Triple XP proudly announced today that the acclaimed action-platformer Fenix Rage has been honored with the GameMaker Game Of the Year 2014 award. From a field of twelve acclaimed indie games utilizing the GameMaker engine, Fenix Rage received over 50% of all votes making it the clear winner. To commemorate this achievement, Fenix Rage is now available for a limited time at $5.99 (60% off SRP) on Steam.
“On behalf of YoYo Games, we want to congratulate the Green Lava Studios’ team on winning the GameMaker Game Of The Year,” said Stuart Poole, head of production at YoYo Games. “The GameMaker engine has enabled talented game developers realize their dreams and it’s wonderful to see Eduardo and his Costa Rican team achieve the success that they deserve.”
“GameMaker is an amazing engine that gives us the power and speed – especially speed – to make Fenix Rage the fast and furious game experience we wanted,” said Eduardo Ramirez, lead programmer and founder of Green Lava Studios. “To be compared in a group of great games like Hyper Light Drifter and Nidhogg is amazing – to have gamers vote for us to win is just tremendous.”
With very positive Steam customer ratings, step into the shoes of Fenix, a really sweet creature of speed and (blocky) cuteness… then feel his boundless rage. He is pissed! You would be too if your village was decimated by a huge explosion, leaving only two survivors: Fenix and the mysterious enemy Oktarus. Fenix will track down this shadowy villain through nine worlds, defeating righteously brutal bosses and hundreds of minions bent on his destruction, on a mission to return order and harmony back to his world.
Fenix Rage is available now on PC via Steam for $5.99 for a limited time. Fenix Rage is in development for PlayStation@4, PlayStation®Vita, and the Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and will be released later this year.
