“Cell: emergence” releasing this Thursday on PC and Xbox Indies

Direct from Press Release from New Life Interactive

The action surgery game “Cell: emergence” will be released Thursday, February 9th on Xbox LIVE Indie Games, GamersGate, GameStop PC Downloads (formerly Impulse), Green Man Gaming, Playism, and Desura. A free demo will be released on Tuesday, February 7th.

In the game players fight a nanoscale war against disease inside the body of a sick child. The fast, deep simulation of tissues, antibodies, germs, nanomachinery, and other elements is achieved with a “dynamic voxel” gameworld, within which every visual detail has meaning, reacts to the player, and interacts with its neighbors.

The Xbox version of the game, selling for 400 MS Points, offers a world of almost half a million cells, and the “Cell HD” version on PC, selling for $8.95 USD, offers a world of nearly a million. The HD version on the PC also provides higher fidelity sound and more frenetic gameplay tuned exclusively to the mouse/trackball/touchpad.

The Xbox version will be available in English and in English subtitled for Japanese, German, and Spanish. The PC version will be available in the preceding languages plus Italian, French, Russian, Simplified Chinese, and Korean.

Inspired by “hard” ’80s arcade games like Defender, Centipede, and Missile Command, Cell offers 17 punishing levels that require players to decipher a level’s “cellular automata” simulation and then battle living processes with speed and dexterity.

The game’s story, written by Deus Ex writer Sheldon Pacotti, is a first glimpse at a near-future fictional world where war is fought in code and chemistry and the inner workings of Nature.

The Dishwasher Returns with a SMILE!!!

Violent Vengeance Begins April 6th in “The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile”
Ska Studios’ “The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile” slashes its way onto Xbox LIVE® Arcade April 6th and will be fully playable March 11-13th during PAX East in Boston.

Today, indie developer Ska Studios announced that its highly anticipated sequel to “Dead Samurai”, “The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile” will be releasing April 6th exclusively on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for 800 Microsoft points. Fans of the series that can’t wait until April can play the completed version of “Vampire Smile” at Ska Studios’ PAX East booth later this week.

“The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile” is set to take the series’ stylistic action, deep game play and unique visual style and kicks it up a few blood soaked notches. Play as The Dishwasher or his sister Yuki, go solo or connect with a friend over Xbox LIVE® and slice your way through 13 campaign levels or climb the leaderboards in 50 arcade challenges. With nearly a dozen insane weapons including the giant Painkiller syringe, an all-new gruesome game engine and full stereoscopic 3D support, this is the Dishwasher sequel fans been yearning for.

For the first time ever, PAX East attendees will be able to play the completed version of “The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile”, including all campaign, arcade and co-op modes. In addition to “Vampire Smile” being fully playable, Ska Studios will be handing out free swag and holding an hourly raffle where attendees can win a pre-release code to download the game prior to its Xbox LIVE® Arcade debut.

About Ska Studios LLC
Based in Schenectady, NY, Ska Studios is an indie video game developer that was founded in 2007 by one unnaturally talented individual; Mr. James Silva. The studio got its start developing PC games, but quickly transitioned to developing for Xbox 360 after winning Microsoft’s Dream-Build-Play competition. Ska Studios continues to release games on Xbox LIVE® Arcade and Xbox LIVE® Indie Games, including “I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES 1NIT!!!1”, “ZP2KX” and “The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile”
MEDIA NOTE: Also Other Popular Games from Ska Studios are ZSX4Guitaropaclypse and ZP2K9

My Thoughts:

I have followed James Silva (Not Literally), for a very long time and have played the first Dishwasher on the XNA Program when it had first started and have grown attached to his work. I can say from experience, that this new installment of the Dishwasher will definitely be something to remember. The artwork, the time it takes, a one man band, with his trusty friend at his side SuperDunner, anything is possible. James Silva shows us some encouragement for Indie Developers alike, whether it be influenced, motivation, or just the inspiration, he shows us what one man can do when he puts his mind to it. James Silva I salute you not just as a media but as someone who will look back on these days like looking back on old Nintendo games and say “Hey Remember Dishwasher?”. That’s Right.
