Steel Minions' first title 'BounceBack' walked away with three out of four awards at this year’s Game Republic student showcase. The soon to be released PSP Minis title won Best Technology, awarded by Four Door Lemon, Best Game Design, awarded by Sumo Digital, and finally Best Team, awarded by Rockstar Leeds. Huge congratulations to the development team!

The day has finally arrived for BounceBack to hit the PlayStation Network as the latest downlodable minis title for PSP, PS3 and PS Vita. At just £2.50 in the UK and 3 Euros in Ireland, we think you'd be crazy not to invest in a stake in all our hard work :-)
Go play it!

BounceBack arrives on PSN today!
Three more lovely new PlayStation Vita dev kits arrived in the post today courtesy of our friends at PlayStation First! We're really excited about working with the new kit and this year's MComp students are already planning to port the Steel Engine to the Vita.

More Vita Devkits
We can finally tell the world that we are the proud owners of a PS4 devkit! It is one of the first to be given to any academic institution in the UK as part of PlayStation First. It's all been top secret until now, but there's an article all about it in this month's EDGE magazine, so we're finally allowed to talk about it. There are some pictures of our students and their work in the article too, but no actual pictures of a PS4 devkit. So here's one of some of our students using the kit to resolve your curiosity.

Yesterday was the most exhausting day the team have had in a long while! We had to travel down to London carrying a mass of equipment, pitch a new game concept to SCEE at their London offices and then attend a BUGS launch event at BAFTA! We left at 8am and got back at 1am! Fortunately it was a very productive day and the pitch went extremely well so it looks like our next release will be a PSN title for the PlayStation 3!
