Curve Studios Announce Explodemon! Has Been Delayed, Now Coming To PSN In January 2011

Curve Studios have announced that Explodemon! has been delayed on the PS2 PSN. Explodemon! will now come out in January 2011. Curve Studios do apologise for the delay.

Press Release

LONDON, ENGLAND – Curve Studios today announced that Explodemon!, its self-published action platformer for PlayStation 3, will see the slightest of slight delays, and will now launch on the PlayStation Network in January 2011.

Approaching a senior member of the company for an explanation behind the delay, a slightly panicked man – who asked to not be named – spluttered “It was like that when I found it!” before running away, arms windmilling.

Attempts to retroactively correct this outburst to something more professional proved futile, but we understand it had something to do with ‘last-minute fixes’ and ‘remaining unflinchingly resolute in our desire to only release the most awesome game possible.’

In short: we’re sorry! But it’ll really be worth it. Promise.


Curve Studios is an independent game developer based in London’s super-swish Islington. The company has worked with partners as diverse as Sony, Nintendo, Codemasters and Sumo Digital on platforms including Wii, Xbox 360, PSP and PS3. Curve’s first self-published title, Explodemon!, will be released Autumn 2010. For more information, visit
