Smashing! Rock Of Ages Powerups Trailer

Beauty is in the eye of the boulder.

Now we’ve gotten to the bottom of why the boulder is smiling, we at RPS haven’t a single reservation about Rock of Ages. Just look at it! It is literally rock and roll. This is going to be an amazing game. And if you watch the following trailer, you’ll discover that even the powerups are going to be pretty good. We’ve got Iron Bands, Fireball, Wings and, uh, Petroleum.

Is this the first hint we’ve received that those peasants are going to be working the fields and employing some kind of resource management? Hmm. That sounds good too. HMM.

    Great balls of fire?

  2. Eagle0600 says:

    A smiling boulder WITH WINGS! This game is now officially awesome.

  3. Baboonanza says:

    I so want this game. I loved Zeno Clash (despite really not expecting too) more for the style than the gameplay but this one seems to have both style and substance.

    Looks a-stone-ishingly good.

  4. apricotsoup says:

    Double Jump!

  5. Memphis-Ahn says:

    Can’t wait to play Stone of Times!

  6. manveruppd says:

    God, I love the Monty Pythonesque animations explaining each powerup! :) This is going to be the most stylish game of 2011!

    • Alexander Norris says:

      I find it hard to believe they’re making Monty P minigames for Facebook but that Terry Gilliam wasn’t involved in this in any way.

      Also, Atlus are awesome.

  7. Burc says:

    I haven’t really grasped what the core gameplay of Boulder of Eras is, but it sure looks amazing!

  8. Ricc says:

    Those wings looks oddly cute for a boulder. I like it!

  9. McDan says:

    This game rocks.
    *hangs head in shame*

  10. Oak says:

    If this turns out to be as good as I imagine it, why, I’m just going to up and faint.

  11. Lars Westergren says:

    I used to think of this as “nice little indie title, I’ll buy it but I don’t know when (if ever) I’ll have time to play it”. It is starting to move up into the “one of my most anticipated games next year” category.

    Why is this rock so evil?

    • dr.online23 says:

      cause its a joint venture production of nestle and general motors

  13. Unknown says:

    Will this game be on PC?

    • Gabbo says:

      I would imagine, yes.
      One of the dev’s posted on their forum that they’re still looking at the different channels for PC distribution (ie more than Steam).

  14. Diamond Droog says:

    To be fair, it’s more like he’s smirking.

  15. The Innocent says:

    Stoked for this game. I really hope it turns out the way I’m imagining it in my head.

  16. The Dark One says:

    I think the most impressive thing in that whole video was how well the motion blur on the rock worked.

  17. Deccan says:

    Between this and Gnomebliteration, have there ever been better days for destroying our enemies with rolling spheres?

  18. Lambchops says:

    This game will certainly not be boulder-dash.

  19. Navagon says:


  20. Thants says:

    This looks like a better Monty Python game than the Monty Python game.

  21. Tetragrammaton says:

    These spam-bot are getting boulder by the day.

  22. MultiVaC says:

    I like the fact that when I first glanced at that screenshot on the header my mind immediately said “ACE Team” before I had read a single word or identified anything in the picture. Even though it’s a completely different setting and engine than Zeno Clash, their games seem to have an unmistakable visual identity that’s really unique.

  23. TomA says:

    Ugg boots, well these things are certainly finding their target market.
