Video: Sony Catches Up with the Indie 9 Developers from E3 2013

50°
7w ago - Sony Vice President, Developer and Publisher Relations guru Adam Boyes caught up with the Indie 9 developers from E3 2013 today to discuss this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo below.

To quote: With E3 2014 mere days away, I wanted to take a quick trip down memory lane to E3 2013. Back then, I had the incredible pleasure of introducing nine indie developers making PS4 games on-stage during our press conference - probably my proudest moment of the show.

We thought it would be fun to check-in with these nine developers one year later, seeing what it has been like for them to develop on PS4 and work with PlayStation in general.





Hopefully you've been following the development of these nine indie games, as well as the other great indie titles PS4 has to offer. Of the "indie nine," we've seen the launch of Don't Starve, Outlast (and its Whistleblower DLC), Mercenary Kings, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, and most recently Transistor.

Such different game experiences from each other, but each so entertaining in their own right - with Don't Starve I was thoroughly studying the migration and mating patterns of the Beefalo, and don't even get me started about Outlast... Even while playing in broad daylight with...

12w ago - Sony Vice President, Developer and Publisher Relations guru Adam Boyes shared a roundup summary today of 12 new Indies coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita complete with videos below!

To quote: Hello PlayStation fans! We held an awesome event at our offices yesterday, and in case you missed some of our new game announcements I wanted to round them up for you below. Also note that all of these titles will be making their console debut on PlayStation platforms.

Independent developers are continuing to create incredible games for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, and we can't wait to bring them to you throughout this year and beyond.

Apotheon (PS4)





"Looking back, making our upcoming action sidescroller Apotheon in the visage of ancient Greek pottery seemed like an obvious choice. Everything is already there.

The 2D perspective, the awesome narrative and setting possibilities, heroes fighting monsters and magical goat-men with no pants... All we really had to do was figure out how to make the art on those pots move around and make it into an interesting game."

Axiom Verge (PS4/PS Vita)

Sony Announces Indie Horror Game Home Coming to PS4, PS Vita

50°
18w ago - Benjamin Rivers Inc Director Benjamin Rivers announced via Sony's Blog today that Indie horror game Home is coming to PS4 and PS Vita.

Below are the details, to quote: Home was a welcome surprise to horror game lovers when it launched on PC in 2012, and it delighted a whole new audience on mobile in 2013.

Its simple controls and heavy reliance on rich sound and atmosphere, though, make it a great choice for a console system - so I'm happy to announce that Home is making the jump to PS4 and PS Vita this year!

Part of Home's charm is that it's entirely dependent on the player; it isn't a march toward Ending A or Ending B - it's the journey itself that is affected, as all your little choices subtly change how your character perceives the world around him. It's a game that people love playing and then discussing afterward to compare notes and theories.

More importantly, it's a game that's meant to be played alone, in the darkest room (or alley, or barn, or deep, dank forest) you can find. On PS4, this means you can turn off the lights, crank that sound system and let the dread wash over you.

If you're extra brave, you can play the game on your Vita - somewhere scary, where no one will find you, and with a fat pair of headphones, of course.

Dark Souls II for PlayStation 3: Hands-on: Die Harder on PS3

50°
25w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared a hands-on PS3 preview for Dark Souls II on PlayStation 3 dubbed Die Harder below.

To quote: Fear not! Based on my initial hands-on experiences, Dark Souls II is proving to be even more fiendishly challenging than its famously difficult predecessor.

I learned this when the very first enemy in the game, a monstrous ogre-like creature sporting a pendulous gut, lifted me into the air and gnawed on my head like a Tootsie pop. I died kicking and screaming.

After reviving, I opted to steer clear of the brute until I'd found a better weapon. But misfortune struck moments later when I was overwhelmed by a swarm of tiny, mewling dog creatures. Pushing on, I faced a gauntlet of towering undead knights, each powerful enough to cleave me in two with a swing of a massive sword.

After dying repeatedly, I finally zig-zagged past them and through a nearby door. Big mistake: here, perched precariously on a narrow platform, I faced off with an armored, giant boss who swung a halberd with lethal accuracy. Yep, you better believe I died.

Though Dark Souls II wastes no time in throwing the player into the deep end of the pool, its core gameplay has also undergone many subtle tweaks that further contribute to its bruising difficulty level....
