Hi everyone. I’m thrilled to be able to tell you that our ‘pyroguelike’ twin-stick squirt ‘em up, Flame Over, is out now on PlayStation Vita in Europe & North America, priced at just £7.99 / €9.99 / $9.99, with an additional 20% discount for PS+ users during launch week!
If you’re not already convinced you want to pick up our unique blend of firefighting roguelike action then check out what the press have been saying:
“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
“...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 is a great game that is sure to get Vita owners hooked with its simple to pick up, difficult to master style of play that will have you wanting to better your previous run every time you pick it up.” - 4.5/5
The Vita Lounge
“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
“If you put enough time into Flame Over, you and your Vita will get on like a house on fire. It’s a tough but hugely rewarding experience that amounts to one of the best Vita releases around. Feel the burn!” - 9/10
Punk and Lizard
“...one of the Playstation Vita’s absolute must-buys. Featuring tight controls, whimsical audio-visuals that belie a ruthless-but-fair set of game systems and a minute cost of entry, there remains little to say but get it while it’s hot.” - 9/10
Coffee Break Gaming
“If you love a game that challenges you and rewards you for persevering, then you should definitely give Flame Over a chance. Do not be fooled by the cute exterior, there is a devilishly good game hidden beneath the surface.” - 90%
“Flame Over is a fresh and quirky experience that I would recommend to anyone that is a fan of the roguelike genre. I've never played anything like it and am already thinking about how I can improve my game.” - 8.5/10
“Flame Over seems too hot to handle at first, but it's worth every hour you invest into it” - 8/10
After two years of hard work we’re beyond thrilled that you can finally check out Flame Over for yourselves! It’s been amazing hearing from so many of you who have already been enjoying the game. :)
A big thank you to everyone who’s tweeted about, talked about, reviewed, streamed or just played Flame Over. As a small developer, we really do rely on your support, and we couldn’t make games like this without you all. So thanks everyone! :) <3
Before I go I’d just like to remind everyone going to Rezzed this week that we’ll be demoing the PS4 version of Flame Over both on our own stand and over on the Sony stand, where you can sample the delights of the Vita version of the game. So if you are there at all then do stop by and say hi. We don’t bite. Not anymore… ^^
And if you haven’t already picked Flame Over up yet then why not head over to the North American or European PSN Store to pick up Flame Over now?

We’re thrilled to be less than a week away from launching Flame Over, our viciously tough firefighting pyroguelike!
There’s not long to go; in fact Flame Over will launch on Tuesday 10th March for $9.99 in SCEA territories, and on Wednesday 11th March for €9.99 in SCEE territories.
We’ll be debuting the launch trailer for Flame Over next Monday 9th March exclusively on both the SCEA and SCEE PlayStation Blog sites, so please do check it out. There will be some other interesting news featuring so please do check it out! ^^
Anyone wishing to dive into Flame Over’s fiendishly difficult “squirt ‘em-up” action can now find a digital guide and some ‘pro tips’ for the game inside the downloadable press pack available on the official Flame Over website: flameovergame.com/press
The link to download the press pack is visible near the top of the page. Enjoy! :)
You can also view our very own ‘Let’s Play videos of Flame Over on the LaughingJackalGames YouTube channel, both of which give STACKS of useful tips on how to play, particularly the first video, which really is a must watch for learner firefighters!
Those of you attending EGX Rezzed next week (12th - 14th March) will be able to play a preview build of the amazing PlayStation®4 version of Flame Over a few months ahead of release as well as talk to the team and maybe try the Vita version too, which will then be on sale. We can’t wait to see you there!
Finally Laughing Jackal’s very own OMG Zombies is now available for a gore-splatteringly cheap £0.79 over on the Steam Store. You would be mad to miss it at that price, so please go check it out! ^^
That’s all until next week. I’ll see you guys on the PlayStation Blog on Monday. In the meantime, get ready to fry! Flame Over is coming!!

So this week’s blog is a little earlier than usual for a very special reason. We have a release date and price point for Flame Over on PS Vita!
Without dragging it out any longer, I am thrilled to announce that Flame Over will be released on Tuesday 10th March in SCEA territories, and on Wednesday 11th March in SCEE territories, for the bargain price of $9.99 in America and €9.99 in Europe, which should equate to £7.99 in the UK.
We’re sure you’ll agree that’s a great price for a game that’s been 2 years in the making and gives you the chance to be a true fire fighting hero in ever changing levels!
The official Flame Over website has also gone live today, so please visit: flameovergame.com
The official launch trailer will be going live a couple of days before launch, courtesy of the PlayStation Blog. Because that’s a long time to wait, I’ve also recorded a second Let’s Play video which you can view below or directly on our YouTube channel. Please share it everywhere you can!
So, that’s it – bombs dropped! We can’t wait for you guys to grab Flame Over for yourselves. On that note, a short plea for help:
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. xoxo
That’s more than enough news for one week I think! But just one last thing…
If you’re lucky enough to be attending EGX Rezzed at London’s Tobacco dock between 12-14 of March 2015 then you’ll be able to try Flame Over for yourselves either on the Sony stand or at our very own demo area, and just one day after the Vita release date! We’d love to see you there!
See you next time. :)
