Punishing Platformer Fenix Rage is Coming to PS Vita and PS4

50°
7w ago - Green Lava Studios CEO Eduardo Ramirez announced today that punishing platformer Fenix Rage is coming to PS Vita and PS4 platforms.

Below are the details, to quote: Hello PlayStation fans! My name is Eduardo Ramirez, founder and lead developer at Green Lava Studios, a Costa Rican based indie game studio.

As big PlayStation fans, we were very excited to make the announcement that Fenix Rage, our hardcore 2D action-platformer, would be coming to PS4 in early 2015.

It's been amazing to read all the comments from people looking forward to playing our game on PS4, and we're getting great feedback from current players of the PC version on how to make improvements for the PS4 version.

After reading several PlayStation blogs and forums asking us to make this game for PS Vita, I'm also very excited to announce today that we will also be bringing Fenix Rage to PS Vita - yay! Our plan is to have it available at the same time as the PS4 version early next year.

We're very early in the process of planning out what gameplay changes we want to make for both the PS4 and PS Vita version, as well as what types of new features we like to add.

We definitely want PlayStation fans to enjoy the addicting fast-paced action of our game and perhaps even add new challenges...

Murdered: Soul Suspect PS4 and PS3 Concept Art Explored

50°
25w ago - Square-Enix Community Manager Lee Williams explored some of the concept art today from Murdered: Soul Suspect for PS4 and PS3 platforms.

To quote: We had the pleasure of sitting down with the young and incredibly gifted Concept Artist, Yuki Matsuzawa, who was responsible for visual development on Murdered: Soul Suspect on PS4 and PS3.

Yuki already had a rich history in Concept Art even before joining the Murdered: Soul Suspect team, having joined Square Enix in 2004 to work with Isamu Kamikokuryo on Final Fantasy XIII for several years. Isamu joined us today as well to see how his protégé had applied his experience with Final Fantasy to a more western game.

In order to show you just how successful this collaboration turned out to be, we were fortunate enough to not only talk about the origins of the game, but Yuki even shared some of his original work for you to feast your eyes on.

First up is a sketch of our protagonist, Ronan O'Connor, which was drawn soon after Matsuzawa joined the Murdered team. As there were no reference materials depicting the reality of a ghost-on-ghost fight (whether they had guns or hit each other with their fists), Matsuzawa came up with several ideas about how best to show such a ghostly battle.

The image is "a proposal for having...
 

Video: Green Lava Studios: Fenix Rage is Coming to PS4 This Year

26w ago - Green Lava Studios CEO Eduardo Ramirez announced today that Fenix Rage is coming to PS4 this year with details and a PlayStation 4 video trailer below.

To quote: It's hard for me to start this blog without saying how incredibly lucky I feel, and I speak for the rest of the Green Lava Studios team of Diego Vasquez and Jose Mora when I say this.

It was only a couple years ago that we debuted our first game prototype on Google Play - it was really simple with hardly any cool visuals, but it served as the backbone of what would become our current game, Fenix Rage.

To read about the official announcement that our hardcore platformer will be launching this Fall on PS4... well, for three guys who grew up in Costa Rica daydreaming about video games, it's just incredible.





As gamers our entire lives, we had a lot of inspirations when creating Fenix Rage. We were - and still are - big fans of Sonic The Hedgehog, and that influence is seen with Fenix's dashing attack as well as some of his animations when near an edge of a platform.

The bright colors and sharp art design is something heavily influenced by Mike Mignolia's Hellboy as well as a cartoon I personally loved from my childhood, SWAT Kats.
