Theatre Brawler, Foul Play Coming Soon to PS4 and Vita (Video)


More indie games heading our way on PS4 and PS Vita and this one is coming from indie publisher Mastertronics and developers Four Door Lemon and Mediatonic. It’s called Foul Play and has a rather interesting premise. You basically play as the lead actor, Baron Dashforth and must put on the performance of a lifetime. You’ll be reenacting many of your daemon hunting adventures live on stage to a packed crowd and must make sure they are thoroughly entertained.

It’s a rather interesting concept and one that really caught my attention due to the uniqueness of it. Foul Play is set to be released sometime this Spring on both PS4 and PS Vita so keep you eyes peeled.

Press Release

London, 6th March – Indie publishers Mastertronic, developers Four Door Lemon and game creators Mediatonic are thrilled to announce that Foul Play, the daemon-hunting brawler with a twist, will be launching on PS4 and PS Vita.

The beasty brawler is back in full polished glory and making its way to Sony platforms so they can participate in the perilous adventures of Baron Dashforth! Originally developed by Mediatonic for Xbox LIVE Arcade and PC, Foul Play is a side-scrolling brawler that rewards performance over pummelling, and as the lead actor in the greatest show on earth it’s your job to keep the audience on the edge of their seats!

Playing as the Victorian daemon-hunter Baron Dashforth, you must smash, strike, banish and beat your way through hordes of wildly costumed extras as you recount your incredible life story live on stage. Watch awe-inspiring scene changes play out before your eyes, as fires rage, pyramids rise, castles crumble and deadly monstrosities burst forth… NO expense has been spared in bringing this scarcely believable, but ENTIRELY ACCURATE story to the stage!

Thrill the baying audience with your presence! Perform shattering takedowns, throws and reversals so perfect you’d swear they were choreographed backstage! String together awesome attacks as the Baron, or have a friend join as your loyal companion Scampwick. Prepare for drama as the Baron’s tale unfolds, from the harsh deserts of Cairo, to the shady streets of Victorian London… and beyond. The finest actors and actresses of the day have been employed to ensure the ABSOLUTE authenticity of the story. Prepare to play out the most spectacular and explosive moments of the Baron’s life; improbable beasts, astonishing villainy, and at the heart of it all – the mysterious Foul Play.

Now stand by for the crowning glory! Take the show on the road as you share progress between PS4 and Vita! Explore stunningly customised 1080p sets and experience new difficulty levels and optimisations for each platform! Play in Understudy mode, Lead mode, or if you’re feeling daring, opt for Veteran mode to really liven up the performance!

“We’re really excited to be working with Mastertronic and our friends at Four Door Lemon to bring Foul Play to a new community of gamers. We had a lot of fun working on our minis titles for PSP and it’s great to be working on PS4 and Vita for the first time!” said Paul Croft, Director of Games.

Andy Payne, CEO of Mastertronic said, “We love working with Mediatonic. When they gave us the chance to publish the PS4 and Vita version of their quintessentially English game, Foul Play it was the easiest decision of the year. We can’t wait to unleash this brilliance on the Playstation community quick sharp!”

Simon Barratt, Founder of Four Door Lemon adds, “We’re really excited to be working with our friends at Mediatonic, we’re big fans of their games and having the chance to work with them to bring Foul Play to Vita was one we jumped at!”

With beautifully animated scene changes to re-create the Baron’s adventures on-stage Foul Play is a game of drama, suspense and, above all, style, releasing on PS4 and Vita this Spring.
