Reverb Triple XP announced that Indie game developer Green Lava Studios has been hard at work finalizing the addictive 2D action platformer Fenix ???? on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the all-in-one games system from Microsoft. With brand new features, play modes, and fine-tuned gameplay, the frenzied platform experience everyone loved on PC has been perfected for current-gen consoles.
Due to legal reasons, the Fenix ???? game name has to change for the PS4 and Xbox One versions, courtesy of an unmentioned game corporation that has claimed specific naming rights to the word ????. The three-man Costa Rican team at Green Lava is disappointed in all this legal wrangling, but is not deterred from bringing its wicked-style of gaming fun to consoles this holiday season.
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 (and your game name was legally blocked!), 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.
Winner of the Gamemaker Showcase Game Of The Year award, Fenix ???? is in development for PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. For the latest buzz and upcoming features, follow Fenix ???? on Twitter, and “Like” the game on Facebook.
Q: So, a video game company is copyrighting the word “Rage”?
A: We didn’t say that, but seems that way, yes.
Q: That’s pretty lame, don’t you think?
A: There’s evidently a price for lameness that we can’t afford. But thankfully at Green Lava our awesomeness is relatively inexpensive.
Q: Fenix Ra…, er, your game was pretty awesome, how are you making it more so for PS4 and Xbox One?
A: More info about what’s new in the upcoming Fenix game will be announced soon, but we definitely made gameplay tuning changes based on all the great feedback from players.
Q: Do you guys need a hug?
A: We’re OK, but…yes, hugs. And cookies.
