Entwined: Introspective Look Back at Pixelopus Emotional PS4 Debut

50°
10w ago - Pixelopus Creative Director Dominic Robilliard shared an introspective look back at the emotional debut of Entwined alongside a PS4 video trailer below today.

To quote: Hi there! Dom here again. It's been a whirlwind since Entwined was announced and released onstage during the PlayStation E3 2014 press conference and we've been overwhelmed with the amazing response to the game.

If you haven't seen Entwined yet, it's a vibrant, abstract action/arcade game about two souls who are in love but can't be together.

These souls are represented by a bird and a fish, which you must learn to control simultaneously. Our team is as unique as the premise, so Jeff and I thought it would be great to hear straight from the rest of Pixelopus about what was involved in making Entwined.





Prototype: Eric Zhang (Engineer)

At the very beginning when Pixelopus was formed, we had a period of time for full group brainstorm sessions, where we tried to find innovative fun game ideas that were relatively small in scale yet could fit our team's size. We took a lot of inspiration from our time in school, at Carnegie Mellon and San Jose State, where we would rapidly prototype as a part of our curriculum.

10w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared a first look today at Driveclub's dynamic weather in action on PlayStation 4 alongside an interview below.

To quote: Evolution Studios took the wraps off Driveclub's dynamic weather system at E3 in Los Angeles last month and we were there to see it demoed live.

Today we've got some new direct feed gameplay clips of the dynamic weather in action and an interview from the game's Art Director Alex Perkins. This is all from an early demo of the game's realistic - and fully customizable - weather system that will be included in Driveclub as a free update for all players just shortly after launch.

We're really excited to give you an early look at how wind, rain, snow and everything in between can affect your races and how you can customize it in your challenges. Take a look at the new videos, then keep reading to catch up with what we've learned from our interview with Alex.

How have you approached weather in Driveclub?

Alex Perkins: We've approached our weather system with the same guiding principles as we've done with everything in Driveclub: to make it as immersive and fun as possible. We've developed a powerful engine that has the capability to model the entire environment in stunning detail; from each cloud that...
 

First Look: Destiny Collectors' Editions for PS4 and PlayStation 3

10w ago - Following up on their previous announcement, Bungie Community Manager DeeJ is back with a first look at the Destiny Collectors' Editions below.

To quote: It's Bungie Day. You want information. You want answers! You want the truth. Here goes...

If all you need from Destiny is a grand adventure that sends you to the stars in search of your own personal legend, we've got you more than covered. If you've played Bungie games in the past, you're not prepared for the scope and the scale of this next-gen shooter.

However! If you crave more ways to express your inner Guardian, we've also got you covered. Destiny is all about collecting loot, after all. The treasures you claim on your missions will enhance your experience.

They'll make you a unique warrior in a brave new world worthy of heroes. They'll deepen your understanding of the journey. This is as true for the Guardian that kicks alien ass it is for the player that drives them forward.

Be you a Guardian or a collector, there is a version of Destiny for you. Check 'em out.

Humanity has been searching the ruins of our Golden Age for Guardians...
 

Sony Offers a Closer Look at LittleBigPlanet 3's New PS4 Characters

50°
13w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton offers a closer look today at LittleBigPlanet 3's new PS4 characters with details below, as follows:

One of the big surprises of E3 week was seeing LittleBigPlanet 3 unveiled live on stage during the PlayStation media briefing.

If you haven't got yourself up to speed already, Sackboy is all set to make his PS4 debut this November. Along with a raft of new features for Create mode, the major new additions to the series come in the form of three new playable characters: Swoop, Oddsock and Toggle.

"We've spent a long time working on the characters," explained XDev's Pete Smith backstage at LA. "Not just making sure that they look distinctive but also that they each offer unique gameplay. That, for me, is the big thing.

We want people to go 'Wow, they really change up the game, and I can create totally new experiences with them'.

"We were also keen to make sure that they were very iconic from a silhouette point of view, so that when you look at them together you can instantly tell them apart. Yet we still wanted them to feel like they were part of the Sackboy family, rather than just a watered down version of the same character."

Indeed, having played through hugely enjoyable E3 demo a few times over, I can confirm that...
 

Video: A Closer Look at Grim Fandango's Surprise Revival

14w ago - 2 Player Productions Director of Photography Asif Siddiky takes a closer look at Grim Fandango's surprise revival in a video below today.

To quote: Hi, we're 2 Player Productions, the documentary team that brought you Penny Arcade: The Series, Minecraft: The Story of Mojang, and the Kickstarter-funded Double Fine Adventure!

Two years ago, we teamed up with Double Fine Productions to prove that "[Register or Login to view links]!"

Well, they're dead now, but in the way you've always wanted them to be! Tim Schafer's beloved LucasArts classic Grim Fandango is back, and we've put together this short retrospective documentary to get you primed for its upcoming release.





Over the fifteen years since its debut, adventure game enthusiasts have longed for the opportunity to revisit Schafer's neo-noir take on Mexican folklore, but unless you still had the original (now out-of-print) discs, there was no official, LucasArts-sanctioned way to play it.

When Disney and LucasArts began licensing their properties to other developers last year, Double Fine reached out to arrange a deal that would allow them to resurrect Manny Calavera, travel agent...
