Super Soul Announces Speakeasy


Super Soul is proud to announce Speakeasy, a rapid-fire, party centric game set for release on the PS4 Fall 2014. The game combines the elements of rock-paper-scissors with all the best parts of a fighting game, all set in the Roaring 20’s.

In the standard Speakeasy mode, you use a simple three-button control scheme to attack, block or fake in one on one battles. These simply controls belay more complicated play, promoting a competitive play that will challenge amateurs and well versed players.


Speakeasy was originally created for Ludum Dare as the 70’s groove inspired “Smooth Operator.” In his Ludum Dare post-mortem, Richie said that he was happy with the game but that it needed depth, or it simply existed as a novelty. Through the partnership with Gun, Speakeasy has achieved the necessary polish to push the game past a novelty and into the kind of competitive game that you will need at your next party. Partially this is the through the addition of exciting historical characters and the thematic choices in the newest iteration, but it is also a product of the different modes that are present in the newest from King of the Hill, Tag Team and tournaments.

Speakeasy is bringing the verve of the 20’s to party games before the end of this year. Check out the gameplay preview on IGN, who say “all prohibition and no beer make historical figures go crazy.”

John, Tom and Tim Present: THE LEXITRON

At the Louisville Arcade Expo a few weeks back John joined fellow game enthusiasts and Lexitron designers Tom Birge and Tim Knowlton (designer Chase LaCas wasn’t able to attend) to discuss how and why RunJumpDev built the Lexitron–Lexington’s own custom-built arcade cabinet featuring games from local developers.  Here’s a sample of what they discussed, and thanks again to the Louisville Expo organizers for giving RJD the opportunity to show off its proudest creation!

New Video!

Supersoul and RunJumpDev rocked a booth at the Louisville Arcade Expo last weekend, and it was an important milestone for each of our newest projects:  RJD brought the Lexitron, Lexington’s first and only arcade machine featuring games from local game designers, and at SuperSoul we premiered a 4-player multiplayer demo of our latest game Astronaut Kitty Boom Boom.  Fun was had by all, we think, and here’s the video to prove it!
