Cohort Studios’ last title, Me Monstar: Hear Me Roar! is now available for the Sony PlayStation3 and PSP. We haven’t heard a great deal about this game till now, but some of the early artwork and subtle hints made us quite excited for an original new idea from the Cohort team. It looks like the early promise will be fulfilled. Despite the deplorable lack of direct links into the PlayStation store itself, Cohort has create a dedicated website, a Facebook page and a YouTube channel for the game, where you can find out more.
What is the game all about? The press release describes it like this:
Me Monstar: Hear Me Roar! is a single player arcade style action game where the player takes control of a Monster during their rites of passage to become a Monstar Guardian. The game takes place in a world formed from people’s dreams and imagination; where farts are deadly weapons and Fear is your enemy.
As a monster embarking upon their rites of passage to become a MONSTAR; feed on Dreams, beat the opposition and grow in power to do battle with the invading Fears and Nightmares!
Under the watchful eye of Master Shoo; punch, fart, head-butt and holler your way through 30 rip-roaring stages along the Roaring Road.
Commenting on their latest self-published title, Darran Thomas, Creative Director of Cohort, adds “Humorous arcade action is what Me Monstar: Hear Me Roar! is all about. When developing this game we really looked to push minis as a platform, both in terms of creating a fun and quality experience, but also making the experience as good on PS3™ as it is on PSP™. We’re really happy with the results, and it was great taking a concept we’ve been playing around with for a while, and putting it out there ourselves with a small team who have complete creative control. We hope people have as much fun playing it as we’ve had making it!”.
The game is out now for PlayStation Plus members, with a general release later in July.
