2% OF IGN’S TOP 100 MODERN GAMES = CAPY!

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

top100_moderngames_cover copy

IGN just published the first portion of their TOP 100 MODERN GAMES LIST and we’re super jazzed to find out that exactly 2% of that list is made up of CAPY gaming goodness!

Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes came in at #81! The folks at IGN had some nice things to say about it:

Clash of Heroes doesn’t ape another game’s mechanics. This is a game all its own with a lot of depth and nuance to be discovered. Intricately detailed environments and smooth animation make Clash of Heroes a gorgeous endeavor. It’s a game to get lost in.

Meanwhile, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP snuck in at #98! From IGN:

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is art. This point-and-click adventure is a near-perfect polyamorous marriage of brilliant 8-bit visuals, clever puzzle-solving, and an unforgettable soundtrack. This unity of sight, sound, and touch is something special.

Thank You SO MUCH, IGN! It’s an huge huge huge honor to be part of a list like that. Here’s hoping Critter Crunch hasn’t been listed yet ’cause it’s #1:) WOOP WOOP!


CLASH = 2nd Best RPG on the DS? THANKS RPGamer!

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

necro battle 2

Nathan Vella, Dr. Capy President PhD and resident yoga master, posted a bit of info on the Official PlayStation Blog about Clash of Heroes HD, which is (GASP!) launching next week!

Check out the post HERE:

PlayStation Blog: Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes Has Puzzles, Battles, Critter Crunch Connections

PS: Just in case you’re wondering, that is NOT Nathan’s voice in the Battle Tactics video! (Though that guy sounds like he sure knows how to party;)

PSS: Stay tuned for the official, Capy-crafted Clash launch trailer… coming soon!


DESTRUCTOID HANDS-ON WITH CLASH OF HEROES HD!

CLASH HD - Inferno

Destructoid just posted an amazing Clash of Heroes HD Hands-On, featuring this quotable notable:

“Visually, Clash of Heroes HD is quite a treat. In terms of other RPG’s you might be able to relate it to, it certainly gives me that Odin Sphere vibe. Don’t take that the wrong way, though. The artists at Capybara definitely have their own unique style and have gone to great pains to create some of the most beautiful artwork and animation I have ever seen in a game, let alone a digital title.”

Check out the full article HERE.

Thanks, Destructoid! Now back to crunching….
