Posted: Monday - May 17, 2010

Hello everyone it's Enrique Galvez CEO of Rockin' Android and avid gamer. Have you heard the buzz? SOE teams up with Rockin' Android announcement has generated strong response both here and abroad. Just in case you didn't catch it the first time. The revered Gundemonoum Collection is coming to your PS3 via the PlayStation Network. Not only will the games be available as a bundle, but also individually on the PlayStation Store in the following languages UK English, French, Italian, German, Spanish. We are all very excited and amazed at SOE's strategy for our games and PlayStation Network games in general. SOE has plenty of exciting surprises in store for PS3 owners. The Gundemonium Collection is just the beginning of an exciting line up from SOE and Rockin' Android. So yeah, we've been going out of our minds with excitement, too bad we can't tell you about our future plans with SOE, yet. We've all grown up with Sony product, weather it was a walkman (my personal favorite minidisc), TV sets or the life changing PlayStation. It's truly an honor for us to work with the fine people at SOE. We are the first publisher to stand up and place a lot of faith in Japanese indie/doujin games, so kampaii everyone!

In liquid space, no one can hear you scream "Qlione"!

Posted: Saturday - September 26, 2009

Apologies to Director Ridley Scott for bastardizing the well-known "Alien" movie tagline. It's just my attempt at being topical by slightly altering the tagline by working in a mention of Rockin' Android's recent release of the downloadable shooter game "Qlione"(pronounced Q-lee-oan-nay). If you haven't already done so, please check out the "Qlione" trailer on the Rockin' Android home page. Then head on over to either Direct2Drive or GamersGate to download the game. In short, this game is one funkytastic 2-D shooter where all the action takes place in a liquid celestial alternative reality, accompanied by a very catchy bass-thumping technobeat soundtrack. The music goes quite well with the magnificent graphics, so try this shooter with the volume turned up. And up. And up. So go on and check out that Q trailer. What if I said please? Pretty please? You can't see this, but I'm begging on my knees here.

Enrique Galvez is The Most Interesting Man in the World... of Doujin Video Games

Posted: Saturday - August 29, 2009

He's championed Asian cinema long before it ever became the 'in' thing.

Hollywood directors and actors have deferred to his advice and knowledge on anime.

While driving down a Texas road, $1,000 in twenty dollar bills flew and scattered out of his van...he then recovered EVERY single bill.

Do Androids Blog & Dream of Comic-Con? Affirmative!

Welcome to the Rockin' Android blog!

Hey, we're very sorry everyone that it's taken so long to start up our blog section, but now we're finally here and we're glad you've stopped by. To tell you the truth, the Rockin' Android crew had been pretty much preoccupied with all the preplanning, logistics and follow-through work that comes from doing a company booth at the summer conventions, having just gone through two of the biggest ones around Anime Expo in Los Angeles and Comic-Con International in beautiful San Diego. And squeezed in between those two conventions, we threw a video game launch party at a local jazz bar for our flagship title, "SUGURI Perfect Edition."
