Vessel on PlayStation 3

It’s official, we’re launching Vessel on PS3 as a console exclusive March 11th! We’ve spent the last several months optimizing it down to the hardware and it’s smooth as butter now, the game is perfect for console and we’re really excited to get it out there.

We’re also announcing the launch of our exclusive Vessel Ferrofluid Toys. These are desk toys containing Ferrofluid, which is as close as you can get to living liquid – it’s a magnetic fluid that spikes up and flows around magnetic field lines, and was the inspiration for the Fluros in Vessel. Really freakin cool to play with if I do say so myself. If you order soon-ish you’ll get a free PS3 and Steam code with it. This is a limited production so we’ll stop taking orders pretty quick, so get it fast if you want it. PS3 orders will get to play the game before the official launch too.

Two weeks to launch!

    Just like everyone else, I got Vessel from PS Plus. I love the game, but I cant seem to get the internal rejection trophy. I have tried a million times, and still no luck. Can you please patch it so it can be easier to obtain the trophy?

    Thank you, sincerely! Vessel is a great and clever game. I’m almost done and enjoying it fabulously.

    Three points / concerns for you and your team regarding the game:
    1.) It’s a bit awkward in the beginning of the game when one might experiment with using Protoplasm only to throw it away and realize that it’s irreplaceable experience points. A warning would be appreciated.
    2.) Please, please, please allow the use of the d-pad. All platformer devs should, especially when the PC version works with digital keyboard keys (great for precise jumps, scaling ladders, etc.)
    3.) The PS3 game, as it stands, contains an extremely nasty and game-breaking bug / gift. When any tank is depleted, switching to another tank to start squirting and then switching back to the empty tank with the squirt button still pressed causes the empty tank to go negative, allowing for an *infinite* supply from that vessel. This includes Protoplasm, and allows immediate unlocking of all upgrades and substantially easier puzzle solving in general, due to not having to backtrack to refill any liquid.

    Thanks again for the great game and for reading this!

    I just got this free off PS+ not too long ago, and I like the game so far! A few things are a little frustrating though (e.g., not easy enough to tell if you’ve cooled lava enough to stand on), but everything seems tight.

    I must point out though, the game’s not “smooth as butter” as you claim. Right off the bat, I noticed the game ran at 30fps, like most console games, disappointingly. And equally so, would dip under 30fps when a lot of physics objects where on screen. It appeared you guys had trouble with this, right? Did you feel it would’ve been impossible to reach 60fps on PS3?

    Hello,
    I got the game through the playstation plus instant game collection. I played it a couple of days ago and was enjoying it before encountering a freeze early in the factory. It happens near the start where you are jumping over pipes that are moving “fire liquid” about. At the last pipe before what i believe is a lift the game freezes. Thinking it might be just that save i tried a new game but the same issue arose. Can you assist at all as i would like to continue playing?
