OPEN EMOTION STUDIOS UNVEILS CHARACTERS AND THEIR UNIQUE ABILITIES FOR THE UPCOMING PSP TITLE, REVOLTIN' YOUTH

Upcoming Puzzle Platformer Provides Lots of Depth for Players As They Take On The Precocious Personalities Of Cole, Badger And Kamiko

Limerick, Ireland - (June 28, 2011) - Video Game Developer?Open Emotion Studios ( http://www.openemotionstudios.com), today?released additional information behind the three main characters that?gamers will be introduced to?in its upcoming puzzle platformer for

the PSP Mini, Revolutin' Youth.?Players will meet Cole, Badger, and?Kamiko, three unruly personalities who will battle it out with the

Evil 'Big Wig,' an evil BADvertiser who has covered the youths' town?in brainwashing advertising. Each character possesses unique abilities?enabling them to solve 50 levels of puzzles in order to progress?through the game.

Cole has unique abilities such as the ability to walk toward large fans?which blow other characters back, and he can also use this to help?push his way through wind. Cole is the only character in the game who?can attack enemies directly. Cole also has the ability to punch?enemies and push large objects and can use keycards. Cole possesses?the largest amount of health of the three main characters but he is?unable to jump.

Kamiko can also use keycards like Cole, but unlike Cole, she can jump?and run faster than the other characters. This is a helpful ability to?help her jump over laser beams. She can also climb which is activated?by her moving onto green mesh surfaces. She has the lowest health of?all characters and she is also unable to attack.

Badger uses context sensitive actions which involve special graffiti,?creating a hang-glider which help him get across large areas.

Sometimes, he will have to use graffiti in order to access another?area where these items are needed. Badger can also use his spray can?on Eye CU units to open doors and to stun/damage some enemy types, and?he is the only character who is able to use cans and the EYE CU?Station. Badger can use keycards and can also jump.?He possesses more?health than Kamiko but less than Cole. He can stun enemies with his?spray cans.

Revoltin' Youth is a new puzzle/platformer from Open Emotion Studios?due for release in the summer of 2011. The evil Big-Wig has covered?the characters town in crummy marketing gibberish. It's up to the?player to control the three characters through 50+ levels of headache?inducing puzzles. The game will feature a unique pixel-art style and a?robust chiptune soundtrack (more exciting details to be revealed?soon!).?Stay tuned for more information on the game as the launch?gets closer and visit the official Website at? http://www.openemotionstudios.com
