Hello time travelers! We’re super excited to announce that the award-winning and face-melting SUPER TIME FORCE ULTRA is headed to PlayStation 4 & PlayStation VITA in 2015!
We’re proud to be bringing our pixelated baby to Sony platforms. So proud, in fact, that we decided to add some new characters for PlayStation fans… including the best-tweeting, nicest, most-photoshoped-into-gifs executive in videogames, Mr. Shuhei Yoshida himself!
So please, check out the trailer, charge the batteries on your VITA, debate quantum mechanics and prepare to grab the steering wheel of time when SUPER TIME FORCE ULTRA launches. Kookabunga!
2013 was a super important year for CAPY. Though we didn’t release any video games (except for Critter Crunch on the Mac App Store), we spent the entire year building a foundation for 2014, and hopefully beyond! It was a crazy busy year spent working on Super Time Force and Below, but also a year filled with great memories, and *huge* milestones for our studio.
Our next target was E3, our biggest event of the year for obvious reasons: We announced Below in a super huge way; on stage at Xbox One’s mega conference. It was utterly surreal and huge, and also totally bonkers. Seeing our tiny little wanderer on the screen at E3, alongside giant super-video games like Halo was a moment to be proud of, and really big step for our studio.
Alongside E3, we had the pleasure and honour to be a part of Horizon, organized by our super bud Brandon Boyer and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art. It was the perfect counter-point to E3’s grandeur and madness, and it gave us a chance to discuss Below in a more direct and personal way. Horizon was definitely one of the highlights of the year, and we’re super glad that we were a part of it.
Is the year done yet, I’m already tired! Oh god, we’re only at July!
Well: July held another unexpected honour for CAPY: Apple was celebrating 5 Years of The App Store, and Sworcery was selected as one of the 5 games that defined the incredibly vast spectrum of amazing apps available on the App Store today. It was a tremendous honour, and a nice cherry on top of the amazing Sworcery journey that we have been on.
At this point in the year, we spent most of our time keeping our head down, iterating on STF and Below, working hard to build on the momentum from the first half of the year. With the madness of E3 well behind us, we though it would a good time to release a new Below trailer, one that would show off another side of the project. With that in mind, we put together PAUSE; a long quiet, beautiful moment that helped us take a deep breath in the middle of a busy and challenging year, and a chance to talk to our fans about our future plans regarding Below.
’Twas around this time that we found out that Super Time Force was nominated for an IndieCade Award, which was a tremendous honour for us. Around the same time, Below found its way to print for the first time, appearing in two beautiful articles: Game Informer and Gamercamp Magazine.
As the year started to wind down, we focused on creating a whole new Super Time Force trailer; one that was focused on explaining the gameplay and main ideas behind the game. Inspired by the brilliant Vi Hart, we created Super Time Force 101, and released it onto the internets. It was super fun to make and was received incredibly well.
And that was 2013 for CAPY! So what does 2014 have in store? Well, we’re getting closer and closer to releasing Super Time Force, which we’re incredibly excited about. We also have some big, exciting new about Below and some (perhaps unexpected) news about other things… 2014 will be the the first year conference goers will get to sit down and play Below, the year we release Super Time Force, and hopefully for us, and for you all, a year filled with good luck, prosperity and love.
All the best from everyone at CAPY! Happy New Year and KOOKABUNGA!

Minecraft is pretty darn cool. Super Time Force is also pretty darn cool. Super Time Force *in* Minecraft is quite possibly the coolest.
We’re very happy to have partnered with the rad folks at Microsoft Studios, 4J Studios and of course, Mojang to bring some of our crazy cast of characters from Super Time Force to the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft as part of the sixth skin pack. Dinosaur in Hawaiian shirt? Check. Two eye-patches? Check. Bare-chested dude named Jef Leppard? Also check. We hope all of you Minecraft players enjoy suiting up as Shieldy Blockerson, Jef Leppard, Jean Rambois, Aimy McKillin, Commander Repeatski or even Zackasaurus. Kookabunga!
