11/06/2015 - Pac-Man Championship Edition DX Adds Haptic Feedback
Feel PAC-MAN! PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX Adds Haptic Feedback, On Sale for $2.99


BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America has released an update to PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX that brings haptic feedback to the ghost-gobbling arcade classic. The update is available now for download on Android devices. To celebrate the introduction of tactile feedback, the game will be available at a discounted sale price of $2.99 for a limited time only.

Haptic feedback in PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX is made possible by the Immersion Corporation’s haptic technology, TouchSense® Engage. Touch sensory feedback allows players to experience the feeling of PAC-MAN throughout the entire game. From munching pellets to devouring delicious fruits and getting caught by the Ghosts, players can now feel gameplay in an advanced multi-sensory experience. As players zoom quickly through the corners of the maze, they’ll even feel their phones mimic the sensation of PAC-MAN scraping against the wall. Tactile effects add a greater sense of immersion for fans as they travel through colorful shifting mazes to collect dots and eat those pesky Ghosts. The race against the clock to top leaderboards and challenge high scores has never felt so good!

PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX on Android devices is the latest title to be featured in the Games You Can Feel collection of mobile gaming experiences in the

11/04/2015 - Teslagrad is coming to PlayStation Vita
THE LONG AWAITED VERSION FOR SONY'S PORTABLE CONSOLE IS SET TO MAGNETIZE PLAYSTATION VITA LATER THIS NOVEMBER


Teslagrad is coming to PlayStation Vita

ROTTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS(4-11-2015): Rain Games has announced today that Teslagrad will be finally making its way to PlayStation Vita players this November. Originally available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, a new Vita version will be available via PlayStation Network. Priced €14.99/$14.99 —€19,99 for the boxed edition handled by SOEDESCO, who also managed the retail release for other platforms— European fans will be able to download Teslagrad November 27th, whereas the puzzle and magnetism-packed platformer is scheduled to reach America by November 24th.

"We are thrilled to release Teslagrad on PlayStation Vita. Our fans have been long asking for this version (with a reason!), and we can't wait to see it happening" said Eduardo Garabito, of Rain Games. "It has been an arduous porting process, but we are convinced that it will worth the effort. We had a great and enthusiastic reception on PlayStation platforms, and after the exciting appearance of the game on PlayStation Plus the Vita version will make things even better".

About Teslagrad

Teslagrad is a 2D puzzle platformer with action elements where you use magnetism and other electromagnetic powers to explore the long abandoned Tesla Tower and discover its many secrets. Nominated for the Best Nordic Game and Best Nordic Innovation in Nordic Game Awards 2014, you play as a young boy on an epic quest. Gain new abilities to explore a non-linear, hand-drawn world inspired by visions of old Europe and use the ancient power of the Teslamancers to defeat a despotic king, discovering an outstanding adventure told through voiceless storytelling.

Following its late 2013 release on Steam, Teslagrad has earned broad critical and player acclaim, and is now present in several additional platforms and regions. The PlayStation Vita digital version in PlayStation Network brings Cross-Platform support, much to the enjoyment of all curious minds along the PlayStation family, and coinciding with the European and American release on PlayStation Vita Rain Games is partnering with Korean publisher company Intragames to release the game in Korea, where it is expected to arrive late November.

Teslagrad is also available on
Steam for £6.99 / €9.99 / $9.99 and on Nintendo eShop for Wii U for £13.99 / €14.99 / $14.99.
