Flame Over, the fast-paced, action-packed fire-fighting roguelike Vita title from Laughing Jackal, will be released in late Q3 or early Q4, according to the developer.


Originally slated for a Q1 release, today, more information on the procedurally-generated adventure title developed with Unity was announced over on the PS Blog.

“Your objective in Flame Over is simple. Just guide your heroic fire fighter, Blaze Carruthers, up through the floors of the Infernal Industries building in London, extinguishing all fires and rescuing all the stranded workers and – naturally – their pet cats, as you go,” according to senior producer Alasdair Evans.

As players strive to put out the inferno, they will go through four different zones, each with their own unique features and hazards. All levels feature items which allow the fire to spread and it can also create backdrafts as well as walls of flame.

A mini-map, thermometer and fire fighting gear will need to be used by the player as they race to complete each level before time runs out. Powerups will help matters, and the game will contain Leaderboards featuring a Time or Cash score.
