Behind the scenes with John Cleese on PS Vita puzzler Smart As…
Hey there PlayStation Nation, Ian Pickles from XDev Studio Europe here. I’m pleased to announce that after a serious amount of hard work creating fun and engaging puzzles to test your mental might, Smart As is hitting stores and PlayStation Network from tomorrow. We’ve had a great time making the game but the fun really starts now as you get to play and we get to see your scores climb up the leaderboards.
Covering the four key areas of logic, arithmetic, language and observation, our goal was to create games that tested those functions and were fun to play. We also wanted to create a truly social experience letting you compete and prove that you are smarter than your friends, family, your city, country and ultimately the entire world.
You can also share and compare all your stats with other Smart As fans and brag about how smart you are on favourite social networks like Facebook and Twitter, all without leaving the game.
Designed from the ground up, Smart As… utilises all of the PS Vita‘s unique features, which means you can take on the world with never-before-seen brain twisters. We’ve had a great time trying to get the very last smidgen of functionality from the PS Vita so you can use the camera, touch screen and motion controls to achieve the highest brain power scores in the most interactive way possible.
As we’ve previously announced, John Cleese provides the voice of Smart As, guiding you through the game and keeping you amused as you show the world how smart you are. Take a look at the video below and find out all about his role as Narrator in Smart As and who in the world he would like to be proved smarter than…
If you think that you’re ready to test your skills, you can now find Smart As at your local retailer or on the PlayStation Store. On the PlayStation Store, you’ll also have the option of downloading a free trial version of the game which will let you sample a basic Daily Training session. Then, when you’re ready to take on the full experience, including a selection of 20 different puzzles as well as all of the cool online capabilities, you’ll have the option to purchase the whole game.
Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more Smart As… news coming soon.
