Video: New Trailer and Details for Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

100°
6w ago - Composer and Co-Director Jessica Curry posted up a new PS4 trailer video and details for Everybody's Gone to the Rapture from E3 2014 today!

To quote: For the last twelve months, we've had our heads down working hard on Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and it's really exciting to be able to share some more information with you as well as a new trailer:





If you already know The Chinese Room, you'll know that we make story-driven games. Creating a rich, deep world with strong drama and exceptional production values is key to what we're all about.

Rapture is set in a remote valley in June 1984 and is a story about people and how they live with each other. But it's also about the end of the world.

Rapture is inspired by the fiction of John Wyndham, J. G. Ballard, John Christopher and other authors who deal with ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. There's a very particular English feel that we wanted to capture in the game, a combination of the epic and the intimate.

Rapture also came from our obsession with post-apocalyptic gaming, and the simple idea that whilst we normally play as the hero, in reality, most of us would be the piles of ash and bone littering the game world. That's...
 

Your First Look at PS4 Adventure Everybody's Gone to the Rapture

50°
48w ago - The Chinese Room Co-Directors Dan Pinchbeck and Jessica Curry gave fans their first look at the PS4 adventure Everybody's Gone to the Rapture during Sony's Gamescom event today.

To quote: Hi there, we're Dan and Jessica, Co-Directors of The Chinese Room. We're based in Brighton, on the south coast of the UK. We made a game called Dear Esther for PC last year that was a first-person story-driven exploration and mystery title.

It was all about immersion and emotion, rather than having lots of complex gameplay, and was slow and poetic, with a really strong emphasis on the quality of the production - music, art, writing, voice-over.

It was one of the breakout indie hits of 2012, gathering up a whole bag of international awards and shifting over three quarters of a million copies. We were left thinking "how do you follow that?"

Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, our new game, is our attempt to answer that question, and I want to tell you a little about it.

Like Dear Esther, the new game is all about the story. It uses simple gameplay - basic exploration of a first-person world - so it's very friendly to people without a lot of game experience. But it's not casual in the classic sense - this is a deep and immersive game.

It's...
 

Video: World Gone Sour on PSN Today, Stars The Sour Patch Kids

100°
119w ago - Beefy Media Executive Producer Adam Boyes has posted up a video announcing that World Gone Sour hits PSN today starring the Sour Patch Kids.

To quote: If you could ask the candy that you eat what its lifelong goals are, what would it say? Would it tell you that it wants to be an astronaut? Drive in the Indy 500? Run a marathon?

Probably not. If you asked a Sour Patch Kid that question, the answer would be this: To make it to the human belly, their sweet rapture.

And that, my friends, is the premise of our new video game World Gone Sour starring the sweet-then-sour candy, Sour Patch Kids.

We took that premise, added Creed Bratton from NBC's "The Office" as our "sometimes sweet and sometimes sour" narrator, got Wu-Tang's own Method Man to create a [Register or Login to view links] included in the game, and set out to make a ridiculously fun game for you to enjoy.

World Gone Sour is a puzzle platformer made by the incredibly talented team at Playbrains (makers of the PSN-exclusive game Sideway where you play as an inch-high candy in a twisted miniature world where you play through sticky movie theatre floors, across sizzling hamburger grills, through a psychotic doll house, and over razor sharp buzz saws.
