Hey everyone! Another Friday, another Youtube video. remember to subscribe!
I figured I would take this Canada Day (and half-way point of the year) to celebrate the Toronto developed games that have been released so far. They are in no particular order and I've tried to link to a page to buy them. If I'm missing one, make sure to let me know on Twitter.
Ace Academy: Black Flight from Illumination Games
This week was a big week for Toronto developed games being released on PlayStation consoles. First, Lovers In A Dangerous Spacetime was released on PlayStation 4 and in the same store update, We Are Doomed from Vertex Pop was released on PlayStation Vita.
You can download the game here, which is Cross-Buy with the PlayStation 4 version. Let us know in the comments if you picked up the game!
Indie developer Vertex Pop announced that their twin-stick shooter We Are Doomed will be releasing on PlayStation Vita on February 9th. The game was previously released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam last year. The game is also cross-buy with the PS4 version, so if you already own that one, then you own the Vita version.
Above all, We Are Doomed is a skill based game. There is no levelling and no upgrades, just your skills improving over time. If you want to get better, you need to get better! And that takes practice. So it’s a good thing you’ll have your PS Vita on you all the time, eh?
To be honest, I thought this was new! But indie developer Mobeen Fikree, let me know this was kind of always the case, as announced on the PlayStation Blog comment page. Mobeen Fikree even tweeted some footage of the game.
We Are Doomed is currently out for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but the Vita version is planned for an early 2016 release. Let us know in the comments if you want to play a portable We Are Doomed!
With the most recent PlayStation update, a few locally developed games are on sale. Check them out below! The names are links to the North American PSN store to purchase.

Congrats to developer Vertext Pop who will be releasing WE ARE DOOMED on PlayStation 4 today, and Xbox One on Friday.
"WE ARE DOOMED is a twin-stick shooter where you zap polygon baddies with an absurdly overpowered laserbeam. Dive head-first into the action with reckless ambition, charge the SUPERBEAM, and zap everything out of existence in an instant. Chase high scores or just enjoy the beautiful explosion of geometry, colour and light."
Make sure to give lots of love to developer on Twitter, and be sure to pick up the game (I will be and will probably be doing a Let's Play)
