To quote: During Tokyo Game Show last year, we (Henrik and Rickard), together with Sony Japan, announced that Pavilion would be coming to PS4 and PS Vita in 2014. Still, most people might not have heard that much about Pavilion, so we felt it was time to shed some light on the game.

"Pavilion, the fourth-person puzzling adventure from Visiontrick Media, throws you directly into its mysterious world without any text tutorials or beginning explanations. It is a puzzle game portrayed through exploration and audio-visual imagery. By interacting and observing you gradually, bit by bit, learn things about both the puzzling gameplay and the world itself."

Let's talk a little bit about the term "fourth-person," which is something we've used over the past year to describe the way you interact with the main character. Basically, the character is not your avatar and you are not in control of him.

To quote: My Name is Snake Plissken. I am Chief Commander of a group known as PMW NATION. I'm currently directing our groups development branch into bringing to the PS3 one great first person gaming experience by means of homebrew on PlayStation Custom Firmware.

We hope to release onto the world a whole new concept in homebrew development on the PS3 by developing an "homebrew engine" that future developers can use to make homebrew with to be used on the PS3.

With the engine one could make your own First person shooter homebrew. It has been proven that other forms of homebrew can be made for and used with the engine as well. Not only that but This would offer a interface for developing homebrew outside of PSL1GHT for all types of CFWs (as we will port the engine to work with multiple types of CFW's)

Developers would need a way to install a .pkg onto there PS3s. They would then make homebrew in form of "recourse data" with the Gaming engine’s tool chain. that is then coupled and distributed with the engine.

A user can download the engine.pkg and insert it on...
