With Tharsis coming out so soon (January 12!), we thought it would be fun to surprise the team with the patches worn by the ship's crew in the game. They were excited for the gift, albeit a little frightened by the implications. Fortunately, no one has felt compelled to cannibalize their coworkers. Not yet, anyhow.
For those who don't know the story behind Tharsis and the ill-fated mission of the Iktomi crew, I suggest checking out our "Origins of Tharsis" video we recently released. Here's a link!
And if you're interested in possibly purchasing an Iktomi patch of your own, please let us know! We only made enough for our team, but we'd love to print more if there's enough demand for them.

Hey everyone! We feel like we’ve done a pretty good job of getting the word out about all six of the original BIT.TRIP games being out now on PS4 and Vita (having it announced during the PlayStation Experience keynote certainly helped!), but if you didn’t get the memo, this blog post is for you!
If you fire up your PS4 or Vita right now, you’ll find something called “The BIT.TRIP” in the PlayStation Store. Don’t be scared - it’s just a compilation featuring BIT.TRIP BEAT, BIT.TRIP CORE, BIT.TRIP VOID, BIT.TRIP RUNNER, BIT.TRIP FATE, and BIT.TRIP FLUX, at the extremely affordable price of $9.99. There’s also cross-buy, cross-save, cross-platform trophies, and cross-platform leaderboards!
The BIT.TRIP will be making its way to PS3 in the near future, and will be free to those who already purchased the PS4 or Vita versions!
Enjoy! And stay tuned for more awesome announcements!
P.S. - Tharsis is coming to PS4 and Steam on January 12! That’s less than a month away!

We've released two games under the Choice Publishing banner since we began the initiative in February: Shutshimi for PS4, Vita and Steam (and soon Wii U), and Dragon Fantasy: The Volumes of Westeria for Steam, Wii U and 3DS. If you haven't played them yet, shame on you. We forgive you, but shame on you all the same.
Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice (Developer: Muteki)
Join Ogden and the heroes of Westeria in this classic JRPG epic, Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice. Travel through the frozen wastelands of Tundaria, experiencing action-packed battles without random encounters, using spatially aware Area-of-Effect attacks and power moves. Travel by pirate ship, defending against enemies in thrilling ship-to-ship rock monster combat! Defeat oncoming hordes of demons and huge bosses that threaten the entire world of Dragon Fantasy.
Originally released on Vita and PS3 as Dragon Fantasy Book II, the game is finally making its way to 3DS, Wii U, and Steam! This release will feature a new boss, a new bestiary, and new additions to the story!

Shift DX marks the return of the classic Shift series. The game will feature all of the levels contained in Shift 1 and 2, along with 100 all-new levels designed specially for this release. It will also allow players to create their own levels and share them online!
Shift DX is coming soon to Nintendo 3DS!

Drive!Drive!Drive! (Developer: different cloth)
Let us try to explain how this brain-melting idea works: you must race & manage multiple tracks at the same time. You are able to switch between the different tracks of a race any time you like. When you switch away from a track, a computer racer takes over driving on that track for you.
Drive!Drive!Drive! is a game about strategy. And dumb computer drivers. And track management. It’s a game about strategy and dumb computer drivers and track management.
The game will feature an amazing soundtrack by the world's state-of-the art synth/prog/post-rock band ZOMBI, not to mention those trippy retro/future visuals all the kids are hallucinating over.
Oh, and did we mention it's set across different galaxies and multiple gravities?
Drive!Drive!Drive! is coming soon to PS4, Vita, Steam and possibly elsewhere!
If you made it to the end of this blog post, congratulations! Your attention span is commendable and you have excellent taste in games. Now mosey on over to the Choice Publishing site and read more, you amazing person, you.
