Here at Curve Studios, we've been working with talented indie developers to bring their games to you guys via PS3 and Vita. For Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut, we've been working very closely with the creator and developer of the original Lone Survivor, Jasper Byrne.
What is Lone Survivor? As the game itself will remind you, this is one to play in the dark with headphones on.
Jasper describes Lone Survivor as a "psychological survival adventure game." It has taken elements from classic adventure games and the best bits of the survival horror genre to create something you haven't seen before.
You can expect scares, scarcity of ammo and exploration of surreal and atmospheric environments to be a big part of the game, but there's also an element of psychological horror...

11w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke has announced release date details for Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut on both PS3 and PS Vita below today.
To quote: Hey everyone, Rob here, representing the fine men and women of Curve studios in London. I'm very happy to announce that Lone Survivor will be out this coming Tuesday, the 24th of September.
Lone Survivor was originally released for the PC last year by indie developer Jasper Byrne. After eight months of work with Jasper on the PS3 and PS Vita versions, we're very happy to say that we've created the definitive version of this game.
Jasper describes the game as a "Psychological Survival Adventure." It has all the hallmarks of classic survival horror games - high on atmosphere and low on available sources of ammunition.
Players can choose to use stealth or firepower to deal with the monsters in Lone Survivor. Depending on player choices, the game can play out very differently, with many optional scenes and different endings.
For the PlayStation version, we started with simple upgrades, like adding touch support on Vita and improving the lighting system... and things spiralled from there!
We've added over twenty new items, new endings, and new game locations. All of them have been...

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...
26w 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...
