Nom Nom Galaxy Hitting PS4 Next Week; PS Vita Version in Limbo
Nom Nom Galaxy, the latest game from Q-Games, the makers of the Pixel Junk series, is officially releasing on PS4 next week on May 12th.
The game is one that’s a bit difficult to describe, part soup factory building game, part tower defense, part platforming, and part mining game, suffice to say it’s unique.
The main objective is to build a soup factory and sell your soup to make money, while defending it from rival soup conglomerates who would like nothing more than to see your soup factory destroyed.
The best way to get a feel for the title is in the launch trailer Q-Games released which you can check out below.
However while the PS4 and PC versions of the game are on track , the previously announced PS Vita version of the game is in a state of limbo, and potentially may not happen. Gareth Wright, Double Eleven’s Design Manager said this in regards to the Vita version in a comment on the PlayStation Blog:
Regards Vita the reason is quite simple – we had to stop work on it so that we could focus on providing the best possible console experience on PS4 without sacrificing the game’s ambition and content.
It came down to cost and scheduling both platforms, and without cutting a ton of core features (on both platforms) the Vita just wasn’t going to be possible at the same time.
We’ve been working with the Vita since 2010 and it’s how we made our real start as a developer, so this wasn’t an easy decision for us.
We love Vita as much as you all. Never say never.
Essentially then, the Vita version’s development was halted and as of now, is cancelled. Though there seems to be the possibility that it could happen one day from Wright’s “Never say never” comment.
