  1. Nice. Can’t wait to see what they do

  2. Great news,

    Velocity proved this is a studio that’s going places.

    I hope this is actually a Vita game rather than a Playstation Mobile title though- PS Mobile isn’t available in many countries, including my own Ireland so I’ve missed out on the last few. :(

    I want to buy them!

  3. Congrats Futurlab. This guys are awesome, they follow me on twitter. Also I’m sure their new game is out this week too.

  4. A new game? Notice when you put all the bold letters in the press release together you’ll get the following website: http://www.fanpowerdflight.net

  5. Superb, those guys convey their enthusiasm and passion so well, they deserve their success!

    • Agreed completely. Best of luck to the guys. What a lovely deal to sign before Christmas. Definitely something to celebrate.

  6. Great stuff, Velocity is a cracking game, more longevity and better quality than a lot more of the expensive stuff available on the PSN

  7. I can’t wait to see what these guys come up with next.
