The quirky underwater puzzle/racer Derrick The Deathfin is currently 25% off, with an additional 30% off for PS Plus subscribers, this week. The deal’s a good one (the game is well worth a look) – it’s basically less than the price of a coffee for Plussers, and it probably tastes much better too.
However, it’s mention of a PlayStation Vita version of the game in the PlayStation Blog post that has got tongues wagging, and there’s even a teaser of a fully fledged sequel in there. We couldn’t let that slide without quickly following up with the developers.
“Derrick has been growing in popularity since his release last year, with sales now happily trending upwards,” said Gordon at developers Different Tuna. “We released at a crazy busy time & had a slow start – as is well documented – so that might account for it.” Initial figures for the game weren’t great, but it’s good to hear that’s changing for the better.
And that Vita version? “We definitely would love to bring something to Vita, whether that’s a full release or a PS Mobile title, part of the Derrick tale or something else entirely. Mysterious eh? We just haven’t decided yet,” teased Gordon.
And a proper sequel is still on the cards, apparently, although it looks like it depends on how many people pick up the first game. “A Derrick sequel would be amazing to do, we have so many ideas,” said Gordon to TheSixthAxis. “So if you want to see it happen pick up the game without delay!”
