FutureLab Announces Velocity

Posted by GG Goblin On February - 10 - 2012

FutureLab, the developers behind Coconut Dodge, have announced their next PlayStation Mini title. Apparently it was named by Spidermann and is the ideal game for attractive men…

 
‘Velocity’ is a scrolling shooter unlike any other which features an innovative teleport mechanic, allowing players to jump around the screen and return to previous areas of a level to solve time sensitive logic puzzles.

 
From James Marsden, FuturLab’s Managing Director:
“We’ve achieved some notable innovations within the shoot ‘em-up genre, to the point where Velocity not only lives up to fond memories of shoot ‘em-up classics, but goes several steps further by introducing something completely new and exciting – teleportation! It also features a phenomenal soundtrack from Joris de Man, winner of an Ivor Novello award for his work on the Killzone series for PS3.”

 
Robin Jubber, Supreme Technical Commander added:
“Speaking as a handsome man, I can confirm this is just the sort of astonishing programming masterpiece I like to play, when I’m winding down after a nine hour coital marathon. With its fluid 60fps gameplay and remarkable hidden features, it very much reminds me of me. As an extra bonus, space is black, so you can always see your face in the Vita’s shiny screen. Modest yet beautiful men like me will find this game as polished as my Superbike. I like to watch my name in the credits while marveling at the sharpness of the font. Buy Velocity now, and earn my manly respect!”

 
The naming of the game was offered up as a competition to fans, but the winning name, chosen by Spidermann,  revealed something very strange indeed…

 
From James Marsden, FuturLab’s Managing Director:
“When we selected the winning entry for the competition, we all thought the winner’s name was a joke, and wondered if the email address would turn out to be fake, so we were delighted to discover that Spidermann is definitely real, and that his alias is not Peter Parker.”

 
It turns out that Spider N. Mann suffered a severe case of identity theft back in 2004, and after a “lightning bolt carrying an atom of genius” hit him, he decided to quickly change his name:

 
“Having been a fan of the character for the majority of my life I decided upon taking the surname Mann, using my nickname ‘Spider’ as my first name, and added an “N” as a middle name so that when people asked what it meant I could say “The ‘N’ stands for ‘nothing.’” – Spider N. Mann

 
Spidermann, who FuturLab now refer to as ‘Spidey’, will get his hands on Velocity for free along with three other lucky PlayStation gamers when the game is released in March!
