Finnish independent developer Housemarque (Outland, Dead Nation) and mobile publisher Beatshapers announced the upcoming PS Vita release of Furmins, a Lemmings-like physics puzzler in which players fling armies of hapless furry critters to their salvation and/or doom.
Similar to puzzle games like The Incredible Machine, Furmins equips players with a set number of puzzle pieces that must be carefully arranged in order to keep the Furmins safe from harm while escorting them to each level's exit. The Vita release follows up on Furmins' debut for iOS platforms last year, and includes more than 100 levels that each offer multiple solutions.
Furmins is set to hit the PlayStation Network in October.
