Below are the details, to quote: Since Lone Survivor game developer Japser Byrne announced the Playstation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of the game in March, both he and the team here at Curve have been working flat out to deliver one of the most unique horror games you're ever likely to play.
Jasper will be joining Curve developers Sam and Hamish at the Sony area at E3, where he'll be showing off the very latest developments on the PlayStation version of the game, answering questions and revealing more information about the game, which is due to be released this summer. We are very excited to be demonstrating the very first playable build of the game at E3.
The original Lone Survivor was released last year on the PC and was well received by critics, scoring 81% on Metacritic, nominated for a Golden Joystick as well as other awards and official selections, and picked up by many sites as Horror Game of the Year. The soundtrack was also consistently praised.
For us at Curve, one of the best things about working on a game like Lone Survivor is that we get to take a game that people really enjoyed and use it as an opportunity for the creator to add even...
1w ago - Mando Productions Marketing Director Michel Bams announced today that Cardboard Castle is making the cut on PlayStation Mobile.
To quote: Hi there PlayStation Community. This week, we're launching Cardboard Castle on PlayStation Mobile. This is our first game on the platform, and we wanted to give the community something that was fun, entertaining and creative.
The premise of the game is to use real-world items like scissors, water and fire to help the hero of the story on his adventure through a land of cardboard.
As we were designing the game and discussing the idea of having "real" elements in the game, someone on our team suggested cardboard with the idea that it could be cut, get wet or burned. So the idea of a puzzle/adventure fantasy world based on cardboard was born.
We wanted to create a story that was totally based on cardboard and paper only. In the beginning the design of the game was really bland, so we added a cartoony feel to it in order to get that balance of real world and cartoon that we were looking for. We also wanted people to feel like they were progressing in the game by using real world items such as scissors and a glass of water.
As you play through the game, you will see where we added fun and humor. The main hero sometimes...
8w ago - Writer and Director Swery made available a video today announcing that Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut hits PS3 on April 30th, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: The development of Deadly Premonition is sort of like finishing a full-length marathon...several times over. In other words, Deadly Premonition is my hobby, my business, my study, and my motivation in life - it's an all-encompassing journey and adventure.
Especially to me, it has been a very vital tool to connect with people around the world. It is a feeling that I equate with romance or marriage; like somebody I love dearly, or like a kid who will never listen to his parents.
But I don't have any kids though. Haha! It has been a wonderful journey, and one that I hope will continue to always live on.
I have always been surprised and humbled by the feedback that fans and press have given Deadly Premonition, and by the adornment and cult following that it has garnered. Personally, I would like to think that Deadly Premonition has received the status that it has because there weren't really any games out at the time that were quite like it.
Fans who enjoyed the original will look to seek out another game that will provide them with a similar level of interest and excitement, but perhaps...
