It achieved an 80 on Metacritic, the first time one of our games received a Metascore, and ended up being the "#65 Best PS4 Game of 2016". The top game was Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. The top indie game was INSIDE, at #3, released on our birthday, August 23, 2016.

It won many other awards: Score Rush Extended, Awards, Honors, & Accomplishments.

I was allowed to author a blog post on the official PlayStation.Blog, for the release in North America. They cross posted it to Europe. Sadly, Score Rush Extended was never released in Japan.

No promises, but we would love to release to the following platforms:

And, here's my personal latest gameplay of Score Rush Extended, in both Dual Play -- controlling two ships at once -- and Godlike difficulty:

We hoped you enjoyed the game!


That is all.
