The Vanishing of Ethan Carter Brings Occult Mystery to PS4

1w ago - The Astronauts founder Adrian Chmierlarz announced today at Gamescom 2014 that The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is bringing Occult Mystery to PS4!

To quote: Hi! We are [Register or Login to view links], an eight-person team founded by the guys who, years ago, also founded People Can Fly, creators of Painkiller and [Register or Login to view links].

However, the game we are making right now could not be more different from what we've made in the past.

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is a story-driven mystery game that focuses entirely on exploration and discovery, featuring no combat or explosions of any kind. If our game leaves any scars, you won't be able to see them.

You play the game as Paul Prospero, an occult-minded detective who receives a disturbing letter from Ethan Carter. Realizing the boy is in grave danger, Paul arrives at Ethan's home of Red Creek Valley, where things turn out to be even worse than he imagined. Ethan has vanished in the wake of a brutal murder, which Paul quickly discerns might not be the only murder to investigate.

As I hope you can see from this short description, we're trying to mix pulp and horror into one cohesive experience. And...
 

PlayStation Vita Memory Cards Dumped by Mr.gas and Tomtomdu80

3w ago - Today Wololo reports that PS Vita hackers mr.gas and tomtomdu80 have dumped Sony's PlayStation Vita Memory Cards with details below.

To quote: Progress on the native side of the Vita hacks is rare, so news like the one we are seeing today is always welcome:

Talk member mr.gas announced today that him and tomtomdu80 (whom you might remember for his VHBL port on Apache Overkill last year) were able to dump the contents of a PS Vita memory card. Although they are not sharing this content publicly for obvious reasons, they have given reasonable proof that their work is totally legit.

This is the first time we see such a dump being announced publicly, since developer katsu released technical documentation on how to copy Vita game cartridges' content more than 6 months ago. Keep in mind that his announce was for game cartridges, while we are talking of a memory card here.

Sony uses proprietary memory cards on the PS Vita, which makes them virtually impossible to read without any additional hardware.

Additionally, it is believed the content...
 

Bamtang Games: Kilka Card Gods on PS Vita: The Peruvian Influence

50°
8w ago - Bamtang Games Creative Director Adam Johnston detailed the Peruvian influence in Kilka Card Gods on PS Vita below today.

To quote: Have you had a chance to play Kilka Card Gods yet? The latest game from our studio, Bamtang Games, was released on June 10th for PS Vita - the first ever self-published launch by a Latin American game development studio on the PlayStation platform.

Needless to say, we're all excited here! Kilka Card Gods is the result of several years of development efforts, and we're extremely happy that one of our games is paving the way for more games developed in Peru and Latin America to be released for PlayStation.

We're especially proud about Kilka Card Gods because the game has been an opportunity for us to portray many elements from Peruvian culture. There are few games that have included Peru as part of their narrative, and in most cases, developers haven't paid much attention to the way Peru and its culture were presented in their games.

With Kilka, we set out to change that and show that things could be done differently - that the richness of Peruvian culture could be accurately and elegantly captured in a way that borrows from tradition while at the same time crafting new stories and characters that players could fall in love with.

Jet Car Stunts on PS4, PS3, PS Vita Release Details, Pricing Revealed

50°
13w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska confirmed today that Jet Car Stunts is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita alongside release details and pricing revealed below.

To quote: Hey! This is Jakub from Grip Games. Some time ago, I told you that we're bringing the popular racing franchise Jet Car Stunts to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita.

We can now share more information about the release dates, pricing, cross-buy and cross-play.





But first, have a look at the new trailer showing the game in all its insanity. You'll be flying in the air, racing on narrow tracks and using jets to reach supersonic speeds.

Jet Car Stunts is a hybrid between a racing game and a platformer. The tracks are devious, the pace is ruthless and your opponents are the best racers on PSN.

Jet Car Stunts will launch on PS3 and PS Vita in July, followed by the PS4 version in August. All three versions support cross-play, and the best players' ghosts and leaderboards transcend all three platforms.

The PS3 and Vita versions will offer cross-buy and will cost $7.99. The PS4 version will be significantly upgraded - offering better visuals and more track details, and running at 60fps and 1080p.

Anyone who purchased the...
 

Helldivers: Four-Player Carnage on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita

13w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here today spotlighting the four-player carnage in Helldivers on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms below.

To quote: To quote: With a game of [Register or Login to view links] going, shouts, curses, and laughter are never far behind. Arrowhead's top-down shooter is coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita this Summer, bolstered by brutally difficult missions and gratifying multiplayer design.

This is a game about outfitting an elite squad, dropping into procedurally-generated battlefields, and fighting to survive. The high level of challenge and the "always-on" friendly fire make victory all the sweeter.

But at a PlayStation event last week, I had more time to watch groups of four players (including Arrowhead's own Designer Patrik Lasota) tackle the alien menace together. The results showcase just how smartly Helldivers has been put together, and how players must, must, work as a team.

For those that missed our original hands-on of Helldivers, the basics are easy to grasp for any passing fan of twin-stick shooters. Move with one stick, aim with the other. Each soldier in the squad had a default...
