Loot Entertainment, the Sony owned studio responsible for bringing virtual goods into PlayStation Home, has decided to move out. Re-branded as Loot Interactive, the studio plans to flex its muscles and prove its worth as a newly established publisher at this years E3.
Loot has stated their new mission is to publish games “with unique, challenging gameplay, and bring them to new audiences on broader platforms, such as PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.” At this years conference, Loot will be showcasing three new independent titles: Whispering Willows, Back to Bed, and Velocibox.
If you’ve not heard of any of these, here’s some information I was able to gather through in depth research and hard work. No, wait, these are from the Loot Interactive website…
Whispering Willows – Developed by NightLight Interactive, this beautiful 2D adventure game tells a horror-themed tale from the perspective of a female protagonist with hand-painted artwork and a haunting soundtrack;
Back to Bed – Developed by Bedtime Digital Games, this whimsical puzzle game tasks players with guiding a sleepwalker safely home through a surreal dream world inspired by the artwork of M.C. Escher, Salvador Dali and René Magritte;
Velocibox – Developed by Shawn Beck Games, this unforgivingly tough endless runner game challenges players to safely guide a speeding box through an increasingly diabolical obstacle course
Though Loot is declaring its independence from Sony, these games are slated for release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita this summer.
