LET THERE BE MORE LIGHT: Llamasoft creates new reality with Minotaur Rescue VR

and Oculus too

Llamasoft's first Oculus Rift Demo

Llamasoft is proud to present its first virtual reality demo, a reimagination of our classic Minotaur Rescue game especially designed for VR.

Displayed for the first time at Replay 2014 in Blackpool. Feel free to download and try it (can be played even without Oculus Rift). If you do have a Rift, put on your headset and enter a world of tumbling asteroids, grunting minotaurs and a not entirely unexpected quantity of particles whizzing past your ears and up your very nose. Stay tuned for more to come.

TxK wins a postumous ZZAP Gold Medal !

It's true! Gary Penn, Julian Rignall and Gary Liddon decided to give TxK a ZZAP! Gold Medal from beyond the grave!


I must say how irrationally happy it made me when I saw that the lads from Zzap! had all played TxK and awarded us this posthumous Zzap! GM. Makes me feel like I'm 20 again. - Yak

Get the orignal soundtrack here!  
Yes ! Yes ! Yes !

The NEW release for PSVita is HERE !

The long awaited new Llamasoft game for PSVita is finally arrived, finally available for digital download on the PSN store.

Glowing vectors, explosive particle effects and a pulse-pounding soundtrack are core elements of many modern arcade shooters - a style that Llamasoft defined with its seminal 90s tube shooter.

TxK is the spiritual successor to that genre-defining work and brings you 100 levels of engrossing score-chasing gameplay married to an outstanding soundtrack that will have your head nodding as you blast your way onto the scoreboards.

Check out TxK details here.

First Playable at Sony

Friday 28th we have been at Sony headquarters in London where we presented the "First Playable" and we received very positive feedback and appreciation. According to Spencer Low "One of the best First Playable I have seen in the last 10 years."
So the second project milestone been passed with flying colours and everything is full steam ahead now looking forward to Alpha submission. We spent a really lovely afternoon at Sony and a wonderful evening with some of the guys at the best hamburger place in London.

The Road Ahead

"19 years ago saw the release of one of the best games Llamasoft ever made, a game which came to be recognised as one of the best games on an entire system - Tempest 2000 on the Atari Jaguar. I've often thought that one day I would like to revisit that game and do some kind of an updated version on modern hardware"

Our Latest game GOAT UP 2 *****
"GoatUp 2. For the caprine game designer within you. The one who likes eating flowers and farting on Manic Miner enemies. You know it makes sense." - Indie Statik
"This is a great evolution of the original Goatup jumper into a platformer game. As usual for Llamasoft, everything is amazing, from the retro sounds and visuals to the tight controls and gameplay."

Welcome to Llamasoft

30 years of making games we love to play and people like to play. Join us now and share the experience of what makes Llamasoft games a kind of its own and what we are.
Yak And Ginger " The first step is making a nice game is make a game you love to play ... "
Llamasoft games been around since 1984, they evolved and are always evolving around the new technologies and medias available always retaining the original vision of games that are fun to play.
Gameplay mechanics, humour, rewarding game experience, right feeling of the controls and a bit of a twisted vision is what you'll find into our games.

During all this years a lot of people have played Llamasoft games some of which been considered to be some classics, like Tempest 2000 or Attack of the Mutant Camels to quote some of the most well known. All those people that liked our work are still following us today.

These people are not just players, they are the people that followed Llamasoft during the development of the games, that seen the life of the games, that voiced their ideas and opinions on what we were doing, that lived together with us what been going on in all those years.

Some people say our games are not "mainstream" because they are different. Yes, they are different but not everyone is the same in this world, we are what we are.

So why don't you take a closer look at what this "different" is and make your own mind ? It won't hurt you ;) You may find out why some people are still with us since 30 years.

Thanks from Yak and Giles

We thank you again for looking around and supporting us.


Thank you from Yak
