Hey budding C.O.U.N.T.E.R agents! David Nottingham, (Dynamighty Creative Director) here with some exciting CounterSpy news!
Yesterday, the good folks at Sony, along with our co-conspirators at C.O.U.N.T.E.R declassified the Release Date information for CounterSpy. The day that you will be able to get your hands on CounterSpy (and hopefully prevent this crazed superpower plot to destroy our moon), is August 19th in North America.
For those who are not familiar, CounterSpy is an Action Stealth side-scroller from Dynamighty (that’s us) set during the Cold War. You play as an agent for C.O.U.N.T.E.R, whose singular goal is to prevent the superpowers from accomplishing their crazy race to destroy the moon with nuclear missiles.
As we count down to that date, we’ve also got some help from some talented folks at PlayStation, who helped us by putting together this launch trailer. Enjoy!
We are really excited to finally be close to getting the game into your hands. Starting a new studio has been a big journey for John and me, starting from when we left LucasArts back in 2010.
We’ve been joined along the way by some awesome talented folks. We have two Marks, a lot of Chrisses, only one Ryan though (you don’t want more than one Ryan at a small indie studio — trust us). Grace & Devin, Ed & Jamie all helped bring life into this game… plus many others! We may have to start assigning agent names to people in future.
Also a huge thanks to our friends at PlayStation. They’ve all been big believers in the world of C.O.U.N.T.E.R.
So purchase on August 19th, or if you can’t wait, you can also pre-order! Thanks to the wonders of PlayStation technology, the game will preload on your shiny new PS4 so its available right on launch day.
Stay tuned on Twitter for further announcements. Also, our tumblr continues to post bits and pieces about the development process, including groovy espionage artwork coolness.
So start the clock ticking for August 19th. Meanwhile, read up on your espionage techniques, eat your vegetables and take that yoga class. We need able-bodied C.O.U.N.T.E.R agents. Because if C.O.U.N.T.E.R won’t save us from reckless moon destroying superpowers then who will?
