Posted on 16 July by Michael Christatos – President, Golden Ruby Games
On behalf of Golden Ruby Games, I am pleased to announce that the our first game, Hermit Crab in Space, winner of the 2013 PlayStation Mobile GameJam, is launching tomorrow on PlayStation Store.
When we first started thinking about what we wanted Hermit Crab in Space to be, we got hooked on the idea of adaptation on the fly. Andy Wallace (Lead Developer/Programmer) and I wanted to offer a thrilling and challenging game to players, but we also wanted to captivate them with great gameplay mechanics.
We got to refine this initial idea, over President’s Day weekend, when Andy Wallace and I, along with our good friends Jane Friedoff and Nicolas Cinquegrani, joined the Sony/IndieCade East GameJam competition. PlayStation Mobile actually had an open session the weekend before the competition to field any questions and allow us to get familiar with the tools provided in the PlayStation Mobile SDK.
