Commenting on their latest self-published title, Darran Thomas, Creative Director of Cohort, adds “Humorous arcade action is what Me Monstar: Hear Me Roar! is all about.  When developing this game we really looked to push minis as a platform, both in terms of creating a fun and quality experience, but also making the experience as good on PS3™ as it is on PSP™.  We’re really happy with the results, and it was great taking a concept we’ve been playing around with for a while, and putting it out there ourselves with a small team who have complete creative control.  We hope people have as much fun playing it as we’ve had making it!”.

Me Monstar: Hear Me Roar! is currently available exclusively for PlayStation®Plus members only.  However, it will be available for general release later in July!
