7w ago - MixedBag Cofounder Mauro Fanelli shared a video trailer today announcing that Sci-fi Adventure Forma 8 is coming to both PS4 and PS Vita platforms.

Below are the details, as follows: Hi! Italian indie studio MixedBag here again. Last Tuesday, we announced our crazy shoot 'em up Futuridium EP Deluxe, coming exclusively to PS Vita. Today, we're here to bring you more PlayStation love.

Our big project - the one we opened MixedBag for - is a game we always wanted to make. We're immensely proud (drumroll) to announce forma.8, coming to PS4 and PS Vita.

forma.8 is an action adventure game and our own personal take on the classic Metroidvania formula. We started working on forma.8 more than two years ago, beginning with a little gameplay concept centered on an experimental control system for touch devices. It evolved into an adventure of epic proportions.





In the distant future, a small exploration probe, forma.8, is stranded alone on the surface of an alien planet. It was parted from its companions by chance, and has a life or death mission to accomplish: it must find and recover a powerful energy source deep under the surface before it's too late. Ancient civilizations,...
 

Video: First Look at Stunning PS4 / PlayStation 4 Adventure Game Rime

33w ago - Tequila Works Creative Director Raul Rubio Munarriz shared a first look at the stunning PS4 / PlayStation 4 adventure game Rime below today.

To quote: Gamescom 2013. Where to begin? It was hugely emotional for us after being silent for so long. Not being able to talk about Rime publically or show what we'd been pouring our creativity into for so long was really difficult.

Finally our frustration was at an end. But ends also herald beginnings, and Rime being presented to the world amongst so many other unique and creative games was the best platform for an announcement we could have hoped for.

For us, it's not just about technology (although that's important too!), it's about how you create an experience - how you breathe life into your creation and set it free. Rime is a very personal project and, together with Sony, we have high hopes for our offspring!





We are happy. We create things with gusto.
 

Your First Look at PS4 Adventure Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

50°
35w ago - The Chinese Room Co-Directors Dan Pinchbeck and Jessica Curry gave fans their first look at the PS4 adventure Everybody's Gone to the Rapture during Sony's Gamescom event today.

To quote: Hi there, we're Dan and Jessica, Co-Directors of The Chinese Room. We're based in Brighton, on the south coast of the UK. We made a game called Dear Esther for PC last year that was a first-person story-driven exploration and mystery title.

It was all about immersion and emotion, rather than having lots of complex gameplay, and was slow and poetic, with a really strong emphasis on the quality of the production - music, art, writing, voice-over.

It was one of the breakout indie hits of 2012, gathering up a whole bag of international awards and shifting over three quarters of a million copies. We were left thinking "how do you follow that?"

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, our new game, is our attempt to answer that question, and I want to tell you a little about it.

Like Dear Esther, the new game is all about the story. It uses simple gameplay - basic exploration of a first-person world - so it's very friendly to people without a lot of game experience. But it's not casual in the classic sense - this is a deep and immersive game.

It's...

35w ago - Chucklefish Lead Writer Ashton Raze announced today that an extraterrestrial sandbox adventure called Starbound is coming to PS4.

To quote: Hey there! We're Chucklefish, a studio working on our first project - an extraterrestrial sandbox adventure game called Starbound.

In Starbound, you take on the role of a character who's just fled from their home planet, only to crash-land on another. From there you'll embark on a quest to survive, discover, explore and fight your way across an infinite universe.

You'll encounter procedurally generated creatures and weapons, discover populated villages and abandoned temples. Explore planets dotted with dungeons, eyeball trees and treasure. Build vast stone castles or lonely, secluded cabins, and do all of it alone or with friends!

Starbound lets you live out your own story of space exploration, discovery and adventure. Settle down and farm the land, hop from planet to planet claiming resources, or make regular visits to populated settlements, taking on jobs and earning a living. NPCs are scattered about the worlds, offering quests and challenges for those looking for a little extra excitement in their lives.

On top of that, a number of quest lines let you delve into the greater galactic mysteries. Who created the...
 

Award-Winning Adventure Proteus is Coming to PS3 and PS Vita

100°
42w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke revealed today that award-winning adventure Proteus is coming to both PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: The team here at Curve takes great pleasure in announcing that Ed Key and David Kanaga's award winning PC indie game, Proteus, will be arriving on both PlayStation 3 and PS Vita this autumn.

A lot of games get called 'unique', but we think there's honestly nothing quite like Proteus. It's a game all about exploration, mystery, color and sound. Played in first person and set on an uninhabited island, it's all about getting immersed in a dreamlike world.

Everything in Proteus is procedurally generated, which means the game is different each time you play. The game plays through all four seasons before the end, and it's nearly impossible to see everything in the game with one play through.

The music and sounds in the game are what really make it special though, and everything you encounter as you explore has its own musical signature, so just like the island, the music changes depending on where you choose to go.

Here at Curve we've been working with Ed to make the PS Vita and PS3 versions even better than the original, and over the next few months we're going to have more information on how we're using the...
