Stealth Bastard is Sneaking Onto PS3 and Vita, But First He Needs a Less Naughty Name


Curve Studios sure is busy with indie PlayStation Network development duties this year. The studio behind Fluidity and Explodemon! is already working on the PlayStation versions of Thomas Was Alone and Lone Survivor, and now you can add one more game to the list.

The illegitimate clone baby of stealth puzzle platformers, known on PC as Stealth Bastard, is making a sneaky dash for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, with cross-buy and cross-save. You can look forward to speed stealthing through 80 levels filled with booby traps and angry robots armed with one-hit-kill laser beams this summer, unlockable gadgets, leaderboards and a level editor available on the side for added replay incentive.

There’s just one problem here. Due to some absurd legalities, the title Stealth Bastard is too profane for the PlayStation Network. Therefore, Curve needs to re-brand the game minus the icky word bastard. If you have a suggestion for Stealth Bastard‘s new PlayStation name, submit it at for a chance to win a Vita system and a copy of the game along with having your name appear in the credits. Just remember to keep it clean, folks.
