Introducing Pillar: A PS4 Psychological Minigame Collection

3w ago - Pillar Designer / Programmer / Musician Michael Hicks officially introduced Pillar, a PS4 psychological minigame collection to PlayStation 4 fans today!

To quote: Hey everyone! My name is [Register or Login to view links], and I'm the designer/programmer/musician for a game I'm announcing today called [Register or Login to view links].

Pillar is a collection of minigames, where each game represents a different type of personality that we find in people. For example, there are introverts who lose energy from being around people, extroverts who expand energy from interacting with others, characters who make decisions with logic, characters who make decisions with feeling and so on. My goal is to express these traits entirely through gameplay mechanics.

Pillar was born out of a confluence of ideas: the first influence I had was from [Register or Login to view links], a movie that examines multiple characters with different storylines but seamlessly weaves them all together.

I realized this is something video games can do too but I've never seen it utilized in a way that's as powerful as this film. For instance, in some games there are characters that have unique abilities, like swimming underwater or...

Sony Announces God of War Collection is Out Today on PS Vita

50°
19w ago - Santa Monica Studio Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman announced that God of War Collection is out today on PS Vita!

To quote: God of War defined the word "epic" like no other when it debuted on PS2 in 2005, introducing an iconic character to PlayStation fans worldwide - Kratos.

Once the servant of Ares (who saved the Spartan General and his army from annihilation in battle), Kratos was tricked into murdering his family, forcing his metamorphosis into the "Ghost of Sparta." Now, chained by the Blades of Chaos, Kratos unlocks the memories of his past, seeking redemption for his sins and vengeance against Ares, the God of War.

This is where the story of Kratos begins, a saga in which players will encounter a skyscraper-sized Leviathan, explore a twisted temple on the back of a massive Titan, decimate enemies with 100 hit combos with the mighty Blades of Chaos, and discover gaming moments that will stay with them forever.





I'll personally never forget "I am what the Gods have made me!" I'd like to think that line alone inspired a generation of gamers.

Now, it's time to bring the legacy of God of War and God of War II to PS Vita, so that no matter where you are, you all can experience the...
 

Sony Offers a Preview of May 2014's Instant Game Collection

100°
21w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer offered a preview today of May 2014's Instant Game Collection with details below.

To quote: Next month PlayStation Plus members will receive several games as part of their membership including Stick it to the Man! on PS4, Puppeteer, PES 2014 and Skullgirls Encore on PlayStation 3, and Limbo and Surge Deluxe on PS Vita. Several of these titles are a visual treat, boasting distinct, vibrant art styles.

Stick it to the Man! is a mix of point and click adventure puzzles plus a bit of platforming, and the animation-inspired art style is really slick. You'll solve problems as Ray, a regular guy who wakes up one day with a giant pink hand floating out of his head. This pink hand gives him the ability to read people's minds and grab stickers from their thoughts to use in the world.

On PS3 members will receive three very different titles: the award-winning, uber-charming platformer Puppeteer, the popular soccer simulator Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 and the indie-darling fighter with a crazy roster, Skullgirls Encore. Puppeteer is a visual treat that follows the story of a boy named Kutaro who gets turned into a puppet by the evil Moon Bear King (great name) and loses his head.

After the transformation Kutaro must borrow other heads...
