The feel-good digital game of the summer has finally landed. Literally. Join eccentric characters Marley and Lander, as well as hot island babes and Tommy Gun-wielding penguins in Landit Bandit: a retro-looking, 3D casual-physics-based-helicopter game now available on the PlayStation ® 3 Network priced at a mouth-watering 12.99 Euros.
Landit Bandit has the depth of a cool-blue ocean and offers gameplay to suit a universal audience. Players can compete for the high-score on the global leaderboard - as well as battle head-to-head in 6 unique duels - or work co-operatively across a 20-level campaign against the backdrop of gorgeous 3D levels ranging from the picturesque desert islands to the cool, ice-filled tundra, each packed with enough humour to keep you laughing out loud from one level to the next.
David Skarin, CTO of The Bearded Ladies is elated at the release,
“To have our game on the PlayStation ® 3 Network is great. Its a testimony to the hard work and raw talent of our small independent studio. We've defeated a string of self-imposed, gruelling milestones and overcome technical challenges akin to the cerebral workout being offered in the game that would leave any bearded lady weeping. The release brings joy to our hearts, although the real excitement is going to come in monitoring the reaction of the players”.
CEO/Producer, Haraldur Thormundsson added,
“We have fulfilled our dreams with the release of Landit Bandit on the Sony PlayStation store. Its been one of the most rewarding expeditions I've been part of to date. To have shared the milestone with such a talented – not to mention eccentric group of creatives – is also very special. We're all confident that players will enjoy the retro-goodness and LOL just as much as we did during the development”.
The North American PlayStation ® 3 community can expect to get their hands on the controls of Landit Bandit from July 13th.
