Hope you’ve all had a great summer. It’s been a long time since the last blog update but we’re back again with some great news!
We’re thrilled to announce that our firefighting Roguelike action game, Flame Over, will be released on PS4 in all SCEA territories on 15th September 2015, with the SCEE version appearing the next day on Wednesday 16th September. The game will go on sale for the bargain price of £8.99 / €11.99 / $11.99.
So, if you’ve longingly admired the Vita and PC versions of Flame Over this summer and wished you could take part, now’s your chance! You can learn more about Flame Over on the dedicated website: www.flameovergame.com
But there’s even more good news. The Vita version of Flame Over will be getting a patch in the next week or so that will bring it in line (as closely as possible) with the forthcoming PS4 version and fix some pesky bugs and balancing issues. So, there’s something for the firefighting faithful on Vita to look forward to as well!
We’ll be back soon with more news. For now, it’s time to start un-reeling your hoses in anticipation! :)

The big day has finally arrived!! Flame Over, our firefighting action roguelike, is released on Steam later today priced at just $11.99. The game will go on sale at 9am PDT (5pm BST) at which point our massive 40% pre-purchase discount will expire, so make sure you hurry to the Flame Over Steam Store Page to take advantage of this great saving while you can! You should also know that there are cats in this game that may well burn without YOUR help. ;_;
Those of you reading this after the game is released shouldn’t despair, as there will be a lesser 20% discount lasting until Thursday 3rd June. So even if you have missed out on the 40% discount it’s still worth making sure you pick up Flame Over now. ;)
This is Laughing Jackal’s biggest project to date and anything you guys can do, from buying the game, recommending it to a friend, or sharing a link to a review or blog post – ANYTHING! – is sincerely appreciated by everyone here. Thank you. :) If you buy the game then you will make us happy in a way it’s probably not safe to describe here. ^_^
It might not be out just yet, but the PC version of Flame Over is already getting some great reviews with Epic Brew awarding it 4/5 saying: “Flame Over is a quality roguelike”
In another awesome development, the 5th largest curator on Steam, Just Good PC Games, has recommended it, saying that: “It has a lot of replay ability”
In addition, the mighty Nerd Cubed’s look at Flame Over on Youtube was something we were thrilled to see:
Flame Over has already received lots of great reviews from its Vita release back in March:
“Flame Over isn’t just one of my favorite PS Vita games of the year but one of my favorite games full stop. I seriously cannot stop playing it.” - 10/10
“Extremely addictive. Hours and hours of pure fun.” -100%
“...packs a ferocious difficulty level and a protagonist that makes Fireman Sam look like a weakling... Not only is it one of the best games of 2015 (so far), it’s one of the best games on Playstation Vita. Period.”
Critical Indie Gamer
“Flame Over burns about as bright as a Bunsen burner with the air holes open and some magnesium tape held in the flame. It is a rock of a challenge that only Herculean gamers will complete... If you're up for the challenge, jump right in...” - 9/10
PS Vita Roundup
“Flame Over seems too hot to handle at first, but it's worth every hour you invest into it” - 8/10
So, make sure you head over to the Flame Over Steam Store page to pick it up now. :)

With the Steam release of Flame Over just a few days away, we thought now was a good time to lock the game’s designer, Al, in a room with a copy of the game and not let him out until he finished another Let’s Play video.
The latest video gives a general overview of the game as well as showing off some of the great new features you can look forward to in the PC version of Flame Over.
For those of you who prefer something a little more unbiased, then Nerd Cubed also took a look at Flame Over for his Youtube channel, and I’m pleased (and with almost 240K views at the time of writing, very, very happy!) to say he really enjoyed it! :) So, go check out what he thought of the game:
Remember, Flame Over is released in just two days on the 28th May, so if you want to get it for just $7.19 (£5.39) with that sweet 40% discount then check out the Flame Over Steam store page
Laughing Jackal is a small, little known development team. We really need YOUR help to spread the news about Flame Over far and wide, so we can get it into people’s hands and keep doing what we (and hopefully you!) love – making great games. We appreciate any help you can give us, be it sharing a post, retweeting, or just telling a friend about Flame Over. It means a huge amount to us so thanks for whatever you’re prepared to do.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m just off to decide if I should let Al out again… ;)
