110w ago - Dyad Creator Shawn McGrath has shared a video and details below confirming that the demo is available on PSN starting today.

To quote: Hey everyone, Shawn here again. I'm dropping by to let you know the Dyad Demo launches today! Yay!

Mare Sheppard of [Register or Login to view links], David Kanaga (Dyad's composer) and I worked tirelessly through the night to create a new trailer announcing the launch of the demo.

It's a playful take on the [Register or Login to view links] and other game trailers. I got to star in my very own trailer; that's pretty neat! I hope everyone has a good laugh, and yes, that's my real hair!

If the (overwhelmingly positive) reviews are correct, then Dyad is a game you have to play to fully understand - now's your chance! Check out Dyad's first five levels, and see if you groove with it. If you do, the PlayStation Plus discount continues this week.

If you're curious about the game, check out this blog post, and maybe this one too.





If you're more of an "official site" kind of person, you're in luck! There just happens to be an official site for Dyad, and it's...

Today, Dyad was approved by the U.S. Fun and Diversion Administration to administer extreme doses of sensory stimulation.

It is absorbed directly into gamers' cerebral cortex via their optical, audial and touch receptors. The game was approved for use in all patients in North America who are in possession of a PS3 console and $14.99, and who are not adversely affected by excessive synaptic activity.

Research on Dyad began in 2008 in TRNT by [Register or Login to view links]. After TRNT officials observed test subjects wholly absorbed in euphoric trances and reviewed testimonies of transcendental interactive experiences, TRNT halted development of Dyad and expelled Shawn.

Determined to finish his research and enlighten gamers worldwide, Shawn partnered with enigmatic composer David Kanaga and continued...
 

Video: Sony Game Creator Reveals the Secrets of PSN's Dyad

124w ago - Today Sony game creator Shawn McGrath has revealed the secrets of PSN's Dyad to fans as part of a new video trailer below.

To quote: Last week in New York City I was fortunate enough to show off Dyad, the almost-ready-done-really-soon-I-promise game coming to PSN for PS3. During our NYC showcase, the crew was kind enough to stop by and conduct a quick Q&A and gameplay session, and you can watch the results in this new original video.

Each of the game's 27 different levels touch upon a variety of mechanics and goals: forming long combos, racing, surviving as long as possible, hitting certain top speeds and more.

And the game's 26 special Trophy levels have challenging alternate goals, whether it's playing just by using sound or collecting objects as quickly as possible.

Since each level has a corresponding leaderboard to track online rankings, Dyad boasts a huge number of leaderboards - 52 in all, each requiring a unique set of skills to master.





I also wanted to mention that David Kanaga did the game's interactive music. Here's his [Register or Login to view links], and you can hear more of his interactive music [Register or Login to view links].
 

Video: Dyad for PlayStation Network: Music and Gameplay Fusion

157w ago - Dyad Creator Shawn McGrath has shared some video footage spotlighting the music and gameplay fusion in Dyad for PlayStation Network today.

To quote: Shawn here again, and I brought along [Register or Login to view links]'s composer, David Kanaga.

We're going to talk a bit about Dyad's interactive music system, how it works and what makes it unique. We're also treating you to a free three-song EP consisting of linear mixes of Dyad's interactive music and some new screenshots!

Below is a new gameplay video showcasing one of the later levels in Dyad. Don't worry if it looks too complex! It'll make perfect sense once you've completed the earlier levels.

When you hear the term "interactive music" you might think of "rhythm games" such as Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Frequency, or others of that nature. Dyad's music system is very different from those games. There's no beat matching or imposed rhythm in the game.





The music doesn't dictate play, nor does it judge you. Dyad's music is reactive, meaning it's mixed dynamically on the fly, based on the current game state and how you're interacting with it. Each time you play a level, the music is different – playing Dyad can...
 

Video: RSBLSB Introduces Their First PS3 Game Dyad for PSN

50°
167w ago - Today RSBLSB (Right Square Bracket Left Square Bracket) Creator Shawn McGrath has introduced their first PS3 game called Dyad for PSN alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: I am very excited to be introducing [Register or Login to view links]'s first PlayStation Network game: [Register or Login to view links].

Dyad is an abstract racing game that has influences in many genres including racing games, fighting games, puzzle games and classic arcade shooters.

Dyad does away with the traditional racing game mechanics of break and accelerate and replaces them with puzzle-like mechanics. You must interact with your enemies in unique and varying ways in order to gain speed.

I've always loved the visceral feel racing games provided, especially the WipeOut series, and I wanted to translate that feeling into a puzzle game. In most racing games, each track has an ideal 'racing line' which players must memorize and translate into muscle memory in order to be successful - I remember months of repeating tracks in WipeOut XL for the PSX!





With Dyad I replaced the mental process of memorizing a racing line with various combo mechanics. Dyad begins with very basic comboing rules centred around...
