Frobisher Says and t@g the first of Vita’s Discovery Apps

Monday, 13th February 2012 00:13 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Two neat little apps will be free to European Vita owners thanks to Sony’s Discovery Apps scheme.

According to the EU PS Blog, Frobisher Says and t@g are just two of a whole range of free apps coming to the Arab Emirates, Australian, New Zealand and UK PlayStation Stores, designed to showcase some of the Vita’s more unique features.

Bolser’s t@g uses is a GPS-based AR tagging system, whereby players design and place street art on real world structures using the Vita’s cameras. It only works with the 3G model, and is due in May.

Players compete to virtually tag the most interesting locations, avoiding the legal ramifications and physical danger of graffiti, and earn respect and t@ggits to progress through the ranks. Leaderboards and comments provide a social aspect. Check out a trailer below.

Frobisher Says is a silly party game you can keep in your pocket, in which a man with a silly man makes all kinds of demands on players. There are 50 games in total, using all of the Vita’s control schemes including both touch panels, gyroscope and camera, and the title supports up to eight players.

Those who pre-order a Vita will score the game for free at launch, while everyone else has to wait until May. Trailer below.

Thanks, IndieGames.

    Some good friends and old work colleagues put Frobisher together so please support it/big it up as much as possible.

    In fact how about doing an article on Honeyslug vg247?

    Tag looks cool as well.

    Frobisher is absolute rubbish. Horrible piece of gaming.

    @2 Thanks for your great contribution. No leaven and never come back.

    Back on topic, I believe this is a good idea but not enough. They should do this with bigger games and bundle them with consoles, like Wii Sports on Wii.

    3#. You are talking about Sony. It´s a miracle that they actually have put a free game app on Vita.

    2# You haven´t even seen it. Why trolling, why?

    Everything I’ve read seems to indicate it’s a good, fun WarioWare clone. What’s not to like?
