SAN DIEGO – Jan. 16, 2017 – Rank17, a VR-focused publisher with a development team in Southern California, is set to deliver a number of innovative VR titles in 2017. The year starts with the retro-themed Super Pixel Smash (due this month) — followed by the monster sim Monster Crush Online and “alien boxing” sports game Planetary Punchout. Finally, an all-new sniper-focused first-person shooter is currently in production and due later this year.

Super Pixel Smash

Wield pixelated paddles to smash powerful shots across colorful interactive walls. Target power-ups for increased scoring, leverage the ever tricky “multi-balls,” or even unlock charged shots to rake in the points. Above all, be sure to avoid the dreaded “death panels”… and race against the clock to secure an impressive high score!

Monster Crush Online (working title)

Play as a giant monster crushing everything in its path. Choose from four capable creatures — Carl Cthulhu, Demon Dave, Gorzilla Greg, and Randy Rockford — and lay waste to fully destructible cityscapes in this entertaining monster sim. In multiplayer mode, compete against friends or go co-op for some shared VR mayhem.

Planetary Punchout (working title)

As an unwilling competitor in the Intergalactic Boxing Federation (IBF), the only choice is to face antagonistic alien creatures in a series of out-of-this-world boxing matches. Winning is far from easy: Each alien race has developed unique fighting styles — and defeat is not an option. Win enough bouts … and live to fight another day!

“This is shaping up to be a standout year for Rank17. After building on the positive reception of our previous games — including the well-received BladeShield — we’re charging full speed ahead with a new generation of ‘pick up and play’ VR titles,” says Steve Iverson, Studio Head, Rank17. “Breakout fans will find much to love in the nostalgic Super Pixel Smash. I’m sure that even meekest among us would be up for some city stomping fun in Monster Crush Online. Boxing is already fun, but punching aliens in face in Planetary Punchout is even better. Finally, FPS fans will soon get the VR game they always wanted in our upcoming sniper game. There’s much more to come throughout 2017!”
