First episode coming later this year.

'Super Motherload,' one of the most promising indie games coming to consoles, will be released on the PS3 and well as the PS4. While the PS3 version has not yet been dated, XGen Studios has revealed that the $15 game is a Cross-Buy a title, so purchasing either the PS4 or PS3 version nets both.

While 'Super Motherload' fully supports the traditional DualShock 3 controller layout, XGen Studios has details on controls specific to the DualShock 4 touch pad.

From XGen Studios, "There are a few special features we’d like to detail about the PS4™ version of Super Motherload. The new touch pad on the DUALSHOCK®4 wireless controller gives the player the most efficient way of using bombs on obstacles and puzzles on Mars. Instead of selecting a bomb by cycling through your items with the L1 and R1 buttons, you can get direct access to a specific shaped bomb for the job by swiping: up, down, left or right for the most basic bomb types, or by clicking the touch pad button to use an Electron Bomb. This small addition to the game really streamlined gameplay. Once you’ve memorized the direction to swipe for the bomb types, it becomes second nature to use. When we were testing out the feature in the office, it was funny to watch coworkers who hadn’t yet broken their L1 and R1 button habits face off against those that had already mastered the use of the touch pad. While the button cyclers were doing their thing, the touch pad elite had already busted through the obstacle for the prize."
