Mythmas Time: Apotheon Trailer

By Craig Pearson on December 4th, 2013.


Apotheon is one of the more interesting games on the horizon. It’s a stunningly pretty action RPG set in ancient Greece, where you’ll wander an open-world Mount Olympus as you attempt to overthrow Hera. It’s from Alien Trap Games, who made the splendid Capsized, and they’ve just announced that if you pre-order Apotheon you’ll get Capsized for free.

Wot I Think – Capsized

By Quintin Smith on May 5th, 2011.

Look at that steely face under the helmet! Who's the real monster here?

Alien Trap are a Canadian indie dev from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I know! You like them already, right? Well, here’s an even better reason to like them- their debut commercial game, Capsized, is far too beautiful for the likes of you and me. Could any game live up to those visuals? Well, this one does. And how.

SMAAASH! Capsized Crash Lands Today

By Quintin Smith on April 29th, 2011.

Uh-oh. He's about to become an as-tro-NOT.

F***! Holy s***! P************! I’ve just spotted over at the industrious (and freshly resdesigned!) IndieGames blog that gorgeous looking indie platformer Capsized is getting released on Steam in just ten hours. I’m also seeing now that as well as the campaign, it’s shipping with a collection of arcade modes- Co-op, Deathmatch, Survival, Time Trials and “Armless Fighting”, whatever that is. Two players sat side by side, controlling the game by mashing the keyboard with their faces? We can only hope. The launch trailer follows. Take a look! Take a look, and then pre-order.

Get Capsized This Friday

By John Walker on April 26th, 2011.

I wish I could screenshot the music for you.

Oh thank goodness. I’ve just completed the completely excellent Shadow Complex on my 360, and am absolutely craving more 2D side-scrolling platforming fun. Just in time we receive information about Capsized, a new 2D side-scrolling platformer that’s reaching Steam this Friday. Along with a copy to play. And playing it I am. I’ll let you know what I think of it on Friday when it comes out, but in the meantime you can watch the trailer below. Oh, and fill the comments with suggestions of other games that might fill my Shadow Complex-shaped hole.

Capsized Looks Swell, Exciting, Difficult

By Quintin Smith on January 3rd, 2011.

Alternative post intro: Here's a 'tip-off' for you!

Capsized is yet another 2011 release that I am sure will entertain anybody who is over-bored (overboard) (DO YOU SEE). Developers Alientrap have released a brand new trailer for their indie platformer featuring platforming, puzzling, battling and death-defying leaps, often all at the same time. Most peculiar! You’ll see what I mean when you watch it below.

Last year when Kieron posted the first Capsized trailer he began hollering about how it was a spiritual successor to ancient BBC Micro game Exile. Both for completion’s sake and because it’s amusing to see the two games side by side, I’ve put a video of it beneath the jump, too.

Exile On Moon Street: Capsized

By Kieron Gillen on October 10th, 2009.


Sipping morning tea, I find myself looking at the newly announced game due in 2010 (via Steam) from Alientrap Software, who you may know as the developer of the free open-source shooter Nexuiz. In first few seconds I’m thinking “Metroid” or “Turrican”, and kinda shrugging. A few later, I think “Exile“. And then I notice its name. It’s totally someone trying to do a modern take on the ancient Physics-lead exploration game Exile. From ambition alone, I suspect this bears close watching. I suspect many of American readers won’t be aware of Exile. It’s… well, in Edge’s retro reviews, writing about old games as if Edge would have if they were around then (with the benefit of hindsight) they gave their precious ten to three only: Elite, Super Mario Bros and Exile. That’s the sort of company it keeps. Footage follows.
