We instantly fell in love with Curve Studios' upcoming Explodemon!
when we saw its debut trailer
. The retro-styled downloadable game is described as "what Treasure would create if they mixed Yoshi's Island
with Half-Life 2
" by designer Jonathan Biddle. "It includes many elements from games as diverse as Street Fighter II
, Super Metroid
." Those are some hardcore names to drop, Biddle -- you sure your game is ready to compete with these big names?
has us quite excited, but we're going to have to wait quite a while before we can play it. The game is currently scheduled for a Q4 release on PlayStation Network, with PC and WiiWare versions to follow.
