Cel Damage HD coming to PlayStation platforms this SpringWritten by: / / 1 Comment
One of the first mainstream games to utilise the cel-shading rendering technique was the vehicular combat game Cel Damage released in 2002 for the Xbox, GameCube and PS2. Despite receiving average review scores at the time, Cel Damage was praised for its cartoony graphics and unique physics engine that attempted to recreate how objects behave in cartoons.
Fast forward to 2014 and the newly formed indie studio Finish Line Games recently announced that it will release a HD remake of Cel Damage for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita this Spring. The game will support Cross-Buy meaning that you only have to purchase it once to play it on any of these systems.
According to the developer, Cel Damage HD will be shown in private meetings at this year’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco next month.
Here’s the official description of the game along with some character artwork:
“A revitalization of the timeless classic Cel Damage, the “HD” version is a fast-paced vehicle combat game where the world’s toughest cartoon drivers get behind the wheel of outlandish cars and battle each other in order to gain fame on the most popular cartoon demolition derby show on TV. With six characters to choose from, combatants smash, shoot and slice enemies into oblivion using an array of destructive armaments for personal glory. With vibrant cel-shaded art, Cel Damage HD transports players into a real-life cartoon environment, and allows them to explore 13 arena-style levels with 10 playable cars and more than 30 weapon power-ups.”
