They want to bring it to Vita, but they want someone else to port it for them. This is Borderlands all over again.

If they want someone to port it and maybe BL2, bluepoint games seems to be the best for that. I mean look at PSASBR and other PS3/PSV games, they've done well so far :)

There's just two people on the dev team. Jonatan (who does the coding) and Dennis who does the art work. They have zero experience with developing games for a console, and due to the engine that they used to make Hotline Miami, they couldn't really port it rather than having to make it from scratch again anyways.

I can fully sympathize with them wanting someone to port it for them, and there's plenty of reasons as to why that would make sense and also benefit customers.

Probably the most stupid comment I've read so far this week. Comparing a game made by a couple of people to a game made by a large development team with a large amount of cash behind them.

Unbelievable.

Yessssss ! Make it happen Sony.

I wonder how it would translate to handheld. The game itself is very fast paced and required VERY quick reactions and precision. IDK if handhelds or even consoles will have fun with it gameplay wise.
