Futurlab Show Off "Surge", Their New Vita Game

An "electrifying match 3" game from the Velocity devs, out in two weeks on PlayStation Mobile for Vita and Android.

Futurlab, the indie devs behind Velocity and two of PlayStation Mobile’s launch titles, have shown off their next game – Surge – for the first time.

It’s described as an “electrifying match 3″ game and a recent playtest – once we got the hang of it – pointed to it being their best game in the trio so far.

You have to drag lines between blocks of the same colour, opening the vents at either side of the screen to increase your score multipliers.

It’s out worldwide in two weeks.

    As simple as it appears it will no doubt be brilliantly addictive. I’m basing it totally on my experience of Velocity which although mechanically simple compared to modern games just had an addictiveness and fun that lots of games lack
    Look forward to playing Surge

      Me neither, but it does look addictive, simple to play but (probably) hard to master.

      We’ve not seen anything like it either, so we *think* it’s new, but who knows :)

    I want this a lot, but PS Mobile isn’t out in the third world country known as Ireland. :(

      Lol didn’t know the coverage was that bad, jeez Sony need to get off that fat asses and get something done. I’m still waiting for a litter of bugs to be removed from FW2.00.
