Arcade Distillery has detailed the games their bringing to the PlayStation Experience next week, and how all of the developer’s games are connected in the same universe! The developer is bringing SkullPirates and War Theatre to the show as demos, but they also announced Manufactured Beauty, though this latest title is very early in development. War Theatre and SkullPirates will be releasing for PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR, and Vita.

First off, Arcade Distillery released a teaser for the two titles going to PSX:

War Theatre will be out first, releasing Q1 2018. Here’s more from the PlayStation.Blog:

War Theatre is a strategy RPG for PS Vita and PS4. I took the feedback from Plague Road and the progression system people wanted, so in War Theatre you can upgrade your party with gold you’ll collect after levels which will allow you to unlock new perks etc… and customize your army and playstyle.

This game is closer to my past turn-based strategies like Desert Ashes on PS Vita, but this time you will have hero units, as you can see in the screenshot above. Those who have played Plague Road might remember the look of this nurse — it’s set in the same world as Plague Road, but hundreds of years later.

SkullPirates is the other game coming to PSX:

On the oceans, sailors tell stories of a ship crewed by the dead and flying the black flag of piracy. They say a skeletal army lives within its hold, waiting to assault unwary vessels and steal their treasure. In hushed tones, their name is uttered: “SkullPirates.”

Their captain, the Skull Queen, has a fearsome reputation as a cutthroat hunter of the seas. She should; she spent a whole lot on marketing to cultivate that image. She also spent a lot on weapons, cannons, clothes, hats, boots, jewelry, couches, drapes. But most of all, she spent money on her prized ship, “The Coccyx Avenger”.

In order to support this extravagant lifestyle, the Skull Queen borrowed money from unsavory characters, and now they’ve come to collect. A group of loan sharks, led by the cunning Sharktavia, have The Coccyx Avenger surrounded and are demanding repayment.
