Obliteracers

 

The award-winning mayhem racer, Obliteracers, has landed on PS4 and is available via the PlayStation Store. Up to 16 players can duke it out on one screen, in a race based more on weapons and carnage than speed. Obliteracers also features dozens of various modifiers to keep things interesting. Play as any of a number of cute and wacky aliens as you take on your friends in local or online multiplayer. To destroy or to be destroyed? That is the question.

Obliteracers out now on PS4! It’s like Mario Kart had a baby with Smash Brothers!

 

Frankfurt, Germany, July 13, 2016  – PC Players worldwide already had their fun with Obliteracers – now the freaked out Racer has been unleashed to the PlayStation 4. Since today Obliteracers is available in the PlayStation Store. The Xbox One version will follow in August.

Obliteracers is an award-winning party racer in which up to 16 players have to prove their skills on one screen. The game is less about speed and more about keeping up with other players, using weapons to knock them out of the race. To destroy or to be destroyed – that’s what it’s about. Compete with friends locally or online against others, with dozens of game modifiers to keep things fresh. Gaming nights in your living room just got a bit cozier…and a whole lot louder.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
