The Ins and Outs (and Ups and Downs) of Designing N++ PS4 Levels

50°
2w ago - Metanet Co-Founder Mare Sheppard is here with details on the ins and outs (and ups and downs, and lefts and rights) of designing N++ levels for PS4 below.

To quote: We're back with more news about N++!

Before we get into that, we want to let you know that we (and N++!) will be at Playstation Experience (December 6-7, Booth # I31)! In addition to showing the game, we're also hosting a panel where we'll discuss the development of N++. See you there!

The question on everybody's mind is probably "when the heck is N++ going to come out?!", or possibly "what the heck is N++?" - for the answers to those questions and more, check out our devblog and tumblr.

For now, we'd like to announce that N++ will have a groundbreaking 1000 levels, and we'd like to tell you more about how they're made. Settle in, this is a detailed process.

N++ is a game that lives and dies by its levels, so making great levels is one of the main things we are making sure we nail. We at Metanet Software have been hand-crafting levels for the N series for ten years now (!), and have made somewhere upwards of 5000 in that time, which is equivalent to more than one level made every single day for ten years.

We started making levels for N++ in 2010, and have amassed about 2000 to refine...

10w ago - Young Horses President & Co-Founder Phil Tibitoski announced today that new Octodad levels hit PS4 on October 14th for free!

Below are the details, to quote: It's finally time... time for two brand spakin' new levels of Octodad: Dadliest Catch; the Shorts!

After the great response Octodad received from y'all, we wanted to give back a little in thanks for your support.

Everyone who currently owns Octodad: Dadliest Catch as well as anyone who grabs a copy in the future will get these levels FREE through the new v1.03 patch. The patch will download its way onto your PS4 on Octodad 14th.

After completing the story of Octodad: Dadliest Catch you might be hungry for more.

Maybe you're curious how Octodad and Scarlet got along after their fateful meeting aboard the sailing ship "Cod of War?" Perhaps you'd like to know what shenanigans Stacy and Tommy get up to with their lavish amounts of free time? You can explore both of these questions in the Octodad Shorts "Dad Romance" and "Medical Mess!"

Even if you don't own Octodad yet, you'll still get these levels for free when you purchase the game! We're also putting the game on sale for 1 week (October 14th to October 21st) at 50% off.

Be sure to pop back here once you've played the Shorts and...
 

Curve Digital: Stealth Inc Sneaking Into E3 With Even More Levels

50°
79w ago - Curve Digital CEO Jason Perkins announced today that Stealth Inc is sneaking into E3 with even more levels.

To quote: Good day, PlayStation fans! It's the Curve team here, bringing you news about Stealth Inc, the stealth-puzzle-platformer for PS3 and Vita that means to exterminate you at any cost.

Taking control of one of PTi Industries' many cloned test subjects, it's your job to hack, leap and lurk your way through an enormous test facility, with only an assortment of disgruntled, laser-wielding security drones for company.

With its focus on hiding in the shadows, Stealth Inc allows you to experience stealth in its purest form, away from pesky distractions like "weapons" and "armor". Now brought to you in crisp, shiny HD, an innocent, defenceless clone being bisected by a laser has never looked so good.

The Curve office is hard at work gearing up for Stealth Inc's release, but it seems that we're missing a couple of our game designers! Curve inmates Sam and Hamish have snuck away to E3, where they'll be showing off their handiwork to the gaming world from the PlayStation booth. Look out for Stealth Inc (and Sam and Hamish's gurning faces) in this year's E3 coverage!

Meanwhile, we'd like to hint at some new and exciting revelations. Firstly - this is less of...
