16w ago - Designer Mike Bithell shared a video today announcing that Volume is slated to debut on both PS4 and PlayStation Vita platforms.
To quote: Hello, I'm Mike Bithell, and I am a man who makes video games. The last game I made was Thomas Was Alone, and the next is called Volume. It's a stealth game about being heard, and it's coming to PS4 and PS Vita first!
I want you to imagine a 15-year-old Mike. He's nerdy, he's chubby, and he's a bit bored of revising for his maths exams. He's the kind of pedantic person who would be irritated if a website corrected the last sentence to be 'math'.
But right now, he's not revising, and he's not correcting hypothetical American editors. He is, instead, cautiously placing the 'making of' DVD that came with his copy of Metal Gear Solid 2 into his dusty and somewhat dented PS2.
One special feature stands out, it shows Hideo Kojima talking about the process of making levels out of Lego. It kind of blows young Mike's mind: Games are accessible things. He has Lego. Kojima has Lego. In some weird way that Danish toy creates a link that means a lot to him. He decides making games might be for him.
Fast forward to today. I'm now 27. I'm still a massive nerd. I am not yet thin. Last week I announced my new game,...

41w ago - Gaijin Games Co-Founder Mike Roush has shared a video today showcasing the Bit Trip presentation of Runner2: CommanderVideo's PlayStation debut below!
To quote: Being a small developer like Gaijin Games can sometimes force us to take things a bit more slowly, and this is why we are both apologizing for taking so long to start making games for PlayStation 3, and why we're hoping you'll welcome us with big ol' greasy hugs when we get there. You see, we have something very special with Runner2, and we're incredibly excited to share it with you on PSN on March 5th.

The Magic of Runner2
While working on the original BIT.TRIP series, we knew we had something special, and we loved making those six games. But it wasn't until all was said and done and we had time to reflect on the mess we'd made when we realized that BIT.TRIP RUNNER was one of the funnest projects we'd ever worked on, and as we contemplated our next steps, we looked at each other and thought, "You know, I bet we could murder peoples' fun-glands with a sequel to this beaut."
