The eShop's about to get Sticky...

24th April 2014

Stick It To The Man! will be making its eShop debut on 1st May in Europe and in the US!

The eccentric and totally hilarious psychic platform-adventure game will be arriving on Wii U next week! From the awesomely talanted devs at Zoink! Stick It To The Man! will be launching on both sides of the pond simultaneously on 1st May priced at £6.99 / €7.99 / $9.99.

The game centres around hardhat tester; Ray Doewood – who has a bizarre accident and wakes up with a giant pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his brain! Standard stuff really. This absurd fluorescent arm (which is invisible to others) gives Ray awesome powers, allowing him to hear people’s thoughts and change the crazy paper world around him with stickers! Digging in the brains of his fellow citizens – including the likes of Santa Claus, a Pregnant General and Elvis (to name but a few); it’s up to Ray to gather clues from countless insane characters and solve mind-boggling puzzles – all while trying to escape the evil clutches of The Man! Can you help to get Ray out of this sticky situation?

Those fun-loving Zoinkers have been beavering away to create a cool and completely new way to play the game just for Nintendo fans! The Wii U version features a totally unique way of using the GamePad to mindread characters – further separating the mind reading world from Ray’s world.

Can’t wait a whole week for the Wii U version? Well fear not! In the meantime you can check out the awesome Wii U Teaser Trailer (and our video of the week!) demonstrating this amazing new feature!

Pure Chess is coming to Nintendo 3DS & Wii U on 20th March!

Hurrah! We hear you cry...

Video Of The Week - Chess Dual: Bill Gates Vs Magnus Carlsen

24th January 2014

Ever seen a ninja brain in action? Someone who processes thoughts with the speed of a thousand gazelles, making decisions with such accuracy and enthusiasm - it actually gives you motion sickness? Well, here it is! Bill Gates; one of the worlds greatest modern thinkers, getting his ass handed to him in this lightening round of Chess. He only lasted seventy one seconds in his daring dual! But to be fair, he was up against Norwegian Grandmaster; Magnus Carlsen - whose name is almost as epic as his mind-boggling Chess skills.

One things for sure - Bill needs to up his game and get practicing his Chess moves! Pure Chess anyone? :-)

Video Of The Week - Some Awesome Stick It To The Man voices!

17th January 2014

What do we have for you this week? Well, the title should give you a bit of a clue... we've got a video of Jonathan Cooke, one of the voice actors featured in Stick It To The Man! He does the voices of Harry the Security Guard, and The Seagull: two completely different voices! It's crazy to see how easily he can change his voice without any effort at all - some of us at Ripstone struggle to put a sentence together & speak properly on a Monday morning; so we're always impressed by anyone who can do these amazing crazy things with their vocal chords!

Also, pretty impressive how he can keep a straight face when talking about pooping on people's head - a true professional!

Check Jonathan out in our featured video or head to our youtube channel to check it out.
