Pressure is back



Hello fellow Pressure players,

as some of you may have noticed, the game was unavailable on the Steam Store for some time.
Mainly this is due to the change of the publishing rights, which we got back over some court hearings and a final settlement with our previous publisher.

With the start of 2016 everything was moved over to our account and we had to make some changes to the game and the store page.

Now Pressure is back on the store with a new price point and we're able to communicate better with you.

So what about the future of Pressure?
Well, of course we gathered a lot of great feedback during the time this game was on the store and this feedback was so extensive that we decided to develop an overhauled and improved version: "Pressure Overdrive".

We're planning to make this version available for you later this year for PC, Mac, Linux and maybe even for the latest consoles! More details on that will follow in time.

All owners of the original game will get a huge discount on "Pressure Overdrive", because you are awesome!

I don't normally give negative reviews but am frustrated because I really wanted to like this game. The controls are frustrating. It isn't even a matter of skill level. They just aren't great. Good concept, poor execution. Don't waste your money. There are better games out there.

Edit: I tried the game with a different controller and it was a better experience. I used a true xbox controller as opposed to a logitech one. It's definately not my favorite game but it is worth playing now.

This is a fantastic couch co-op game - grab some controllers and enjoy some classic fun combining racing, shooting and yelling at the other person to hurry up.

Pros: Great gameplay, especially in couch co-op mode, fantastic atmosphere/ music and best of all, the premise of the game is original and hilarious.

Cons: Whole game is a bit short, and not a lot of replayability. Some glitches get you stuck (temporarily).

Overall, I'd highly recommend it for a few days of fun - I'd love to see a sequel or more games from this developer.

☺ Easy to play.
☺ Local co-op.
☺ Suitable for most ages.

☹ Short.
☹ Difficulty spikes.

Pressure can be summed up rather easily, short and sweet. The gameplay is a cross between a racer and shoot em up where you control a steam powered buggy and have to contend with a variety of enemies as you try to make it to the finish line without running out of steam...literally, if you dordle or allow one too many enemies to escape you'll not have enough pressure to keep your buggy going and grind to a halt.

After a race you have the option to spend any coins collected to upgrade your buggy with a variety of weapons, tools, rams and a beefier buggy and while it doesn't really change how the game plays, the upgrades are very much required to progress and even on Normal Difficulty, you may hit some challenging spikes in difficulty. This isn't helped by seemingly being unable to redo won races during the campaign to collect more coins for upgrades - at one stage, I had to sell all previous unlocks in order to buy the parts needed to give me a fighting chance.

Levels are largely similar, hold accelerate and fire and hurtle towards the finish line, boosting when available. Of special note are the few 'boss' levels which I found very enjoyable and changed up the pace of things enough to keep the game engaging.

The presentation is lovely and the couple of cutscenes are humorous. It controlled well with an XBox Controller and was certainly playable, though slightly clunky with keyboard controls and the entire game can be played in local co-op and although Online Multiplayer is an option, at the time of playing there were no servers available.

Pressure is rather enjoyable but very short, crossing the finish line at around three hours to clear the campaign races. It's certainly hard to recommend this game at full price as a result of this, but what's on offer is well polished and fun - if you want a game to play with your kids and you happen to see this game on offer, I'd say give it a go!

Pressure is a racing combat arcade game. You play as Morgan, a young man in his steam-powered attack vehicle, racing across the land battling evil minions to get the lake's water back from Count Soap II, who stole all of it to force the inhabitants to use his spa facilities.

Pros: Nice game for all ages with colorful graphics and humoristic characters. You don't race against time, but instead against the loss of pressure you vehicle has, which is replenished from fighting off other wacky vehicles and passing check points. You have a multitude of upgrades you can purchase between races, whether car chassis, bumper, main weapon and secondary weapon. There's a long list of varied levels with little repetition, and an increasing variety of baddies to shoot, some straightforward and some requiring specific tactics.

Cons: There is no story development to speak of (not that the game needs any). The game's focus isn't on the racing itself, but on completing the levels while killing all baddies and picking coins, so once completed there is little incentive to go back just to beat your time. The campaign mode doesn't allow to play back other levels, so you can't use your progression to do better in a past level.

Verdict: ★★★★☆ - Next on your list!

As far as arcade-style games go, this is a fun one to play. Levels are quick, so you can hop in for a few levels and leave, great for young gamers, casual gamers, or anyone looking for short play sessions. The game is exactly what it advertises to be, so if it looks interesting to you, knock yourself out!

It's fun for a little bit. It's also very hard. We got to the second map and had a hard time beating it, it was on normal, still didn't beat it. You constantly run out of pressure before you get to the 3rd check point, and since you don't have enough coins to upgrade your vehicle, you will be stuck repeating the same map over and over. There is also an issue with losing connection from the server. I recommend this for the 99 cents sale that's going on now, but not for full price.

"Pressure" is the abbreviation of ' "lego racers" meets "just keep clicking with the left mouse button" '. It's a game where you drive your car "from above" while trying to shoot whatever shoots you. It has really nice coins to pickup along the way (if you're from Mars and never played super mario, picking coins is good) and you can destroy stuff just because you missed your target and the bullets have to go somewhere.

Now, let's us be serious for a moment:
This game is funny and has a nice gameplay but it's ordinary and not original. I only recommend it because it's very well made and it's not really bad at all. I played for a bit and after a while i found it boring so i just waited for the trading cards to close it. I think that steam spoiled me and now my standards are too high.

The only bad thing about this game is the rise in difficulty.
I think it is pretty darn hard even on normal but when you get a friend over, set it to easy and grab some beer it is absolutly funny.

It has an good looking goofy artstyle and good graphic, the music and sound effects are good and rather funny and the humor is top notch.

Played with the wife, had lots of fun for a few weeks. That's it: a casual game for a couple or kids and parents. Definitely not a gamer's game, but I still had fun because of the situation. Upgrading your little kart and run with a relative! Do recommend.
