Who’s That Flying?!

UK studio Mediatonic, also known as the first studio to produce a PlayStation Mini title I had any interest in (Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess!) have dispatched word about what might become the second PlayStation Mini title I care about, Who’s That Flying?! – or WTF?!, see what they did there?

I should be more interested in Mini releases given my deteriorating attention span for longer games. The subtle art of grabbing my attention in this case owes plenty to the pitch,

“It’s a side-scrolling shooter meets tower defense (with courtroom drama and intrigue!) doused in sheer awesomeness… AND THEN SET ON FIRE.”

Some of what that actually means remains a mystery, but the mix of side-scrolling and tower defense requires preventing a set amount of enemies from getting into the city, thus saving it from invasion.

Mediatonic says the game is finished and going through the age-rating process, with a release for early September on the radar.
