Rain Games on The Art of Teslagrad for PS3 and PS Vita Platforms

3d ago - Rain Games Developer Eduardo Garabito shared details today on the art of Teslagrad for PS3 and PS Vita platforms below.

To quote: Hi there! It's Teslagrad Minister of Propaganda, reporting again. We're going all out here, working on both the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game, and making progress.

And although it's too soon to talk about a release date (Soon enough!), it's a perfect occasion to discuss Teslagrad's art and influences - questions we've been asked repeatedly both in interviews and on our social networks.

Of course, having three different artists on the team for a "small" game ensures that there are different influences along the way. And no less important, the game's art is a core element of Teslagrad, as we rely on visuals to build a silent story.

Character animation is one of the features that jumps out at you when playing Teslagrad. In that regard, and as our artist Ole notes, we shied away from a clean, modern look for the animations for several reasons.





We knew we wanted to do the game in HD, with hand-animated characters, which is a huge task for a tiny team such as ours. We opted to do most character animations in 12 FPS...

22w ago - Sony Santa Monica Senior Producer Zach Wood shared a video today detailing Sound Shapes on PlayStation 4, PS4 DLC and Art Packs below.

To quote: Okay, this is a big one. Are you ready? Here we go.

So you probably saw the PS4 launch last week - pretty exciting, right!? Did you get one? Lucky lucky if you did.

We've been playing with the PlayStation 4 for a while, because we've been preparing Sound Shapes for this screaming fast new machine. Sound Shapes doesn't exactly push the hardware, but it sure looks sweet!

We've also added new functionality with DualShock 4′s touchpad, light bar, and speakers. It also takes advantage of PS4′s social features, like the new Share button that allows you to easily livestream your game with friends and share vids of your levels.





With all these improvements, this is a great time to pick up Sound Shapes (we're impressed with your monk-like patience if you haven't). If you're already one of our thousands of supporters, we have great news... The PS4 version of Sound Shapes is free for you!

That's right, everyone who's already purchased the game from PSN for PS3 or PS Vita also gets it for PS4 (isn't Cross-Buy great?). The flip is...
