Video: New Velocity 2X PS4 / PS Vita Trailer Update: So Far, So Good

10w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden is here with a new Velocity 2X PS4 / PS Vita trailer update which he states is coming along so far, so good!

To quote: Hi folks. Today I'm here to reveal a brand new video showing alpha footage of Velocity 2X; to talk through some of the things we've been working towards; and to outline what we're going to be adding next!

First, the video:





It's starting to look the part, but there's still a lot to do. The major thing left to do is improve the animation on the player character Lt. Kai Tana. We're working on that right now.

The art style

One of the major influences for Velocity 2X was the art style of Flashback on the Amiga. For those of you too young to have played Flashback (poor you, play the original!), it was a stunning visual achievement, using rotoscoped animation and a simple yet stylish art style to create a highly atmospheric experience. 12-year-old me fell in love with it.

Artistically speaking, we wanted Velocity 2X to be the spiritual successor to Flashback (and indeed Another World), and also to create a level of atmosphere and production value that is rarely seen in 2D games.

Video: Atomic Ninjas on PS3 and PS Vita: First Gameplay Trailer

200°
39w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska posted up the first gameplay trailer below today for Atomic Ninjas on both PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: This is Jakub from Grip Games. A few weeks ago, I introduced you to our newest creation - Atomic Ninjas, for PS3 and PS Vita. I€m back with the very first gameplay trailer, to show you exactly what Atomic Ninjas is all about!

This 2.5D competitive shooter/platformer is going to be one of the most insane experiences you'll ever have with your PS3 and PS Vita! You'll fight in arenas full of danger against crazed ninjas in intense and funny matches. In order to win, you'll have to outsmart and outflank your opponents.

As you can see in the trailer, you cannot directly kill other ninjas (thanks to massive amounts of radiation and their healthy lifestyle). But there are dozens of conveniently placed hazards, like lasers, lava pits and fire that will do the job! You just need to find a way to get your opponents there and not become a roasted turkey yourself!





To help you in this uneasy task, we have added lots of weapons and super abilities. You'll be able to become invisible, fly on a rocket, use telekinesis, become an unstoppable hulk for a few moments, and many...
 

Video: Hohokum Unveils E3 2013 Trailer for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita

45w ago - Co-creator Richard Hogg made available a video from E3 2013 today unveiling Hohokum for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms below.

To quote: Hello there! It has been about a month since we announced that Hohokum will be available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita next year.

At the time I mentioned that we would have some gameplay footage coming soon... and here it is! It features lots of new gameplay footage as well as a close look at some of the characters from the game.

These bits were fun to make as they bring together lots of characters who never actually meet in the game. They seem to be getting on ok though, particularly Brollygirl and the oil-can guy. Gonna have to watch those two.

If you missed our previous announcement, Hohokum is a colorful, charming and whimsical game made by myself, Richard Hogg (I am an artist and illustrator) and Honeyslug, a London based game studio. It was an IGF and IndieCade finalist in 2011.





Hohokum will be playable at E3 in a few different locations including the PlayStation booth and the marvelous IndieCade booth. Look forward to seeing a bit more about Hohokum coming...

To quote: It€s been a little while since we updated you on our progress making Tearaway, but that all changes today!

Just one of the stops you€ll make as you go on your delivery adventure in the world of Tearaway is Sogport, a mysterious island marooned in a deep sea of glue, and inhabited by some very fishy folk with a fearful obsession with the island's monstrous local wildlife. See for yourself...





Last August we introduced you to iota, and today we€re really excited to introduce atoi (pronounced like the French phrase a€toi €" €ah-twa€ )

When you start your adventure, you€ll be able to customize the game to your liking, choosing which messenger will accompany you on your journey, either iota or atoi, and also on the shape, size and color of your...
 

Video: Killzone: Mercenary Hits PS Vita September 17, New Trailer

200°
64w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Poria Torkan has confirmed today that Killzone: Mercenary hits PS Vita on September 17th alongside unveiling a new trailer and screenshots below!

To quote: Killzone: Mercenary is scheduled for a September 17, 2013 release in North America.

Killzone: Mercenary is a new first-person shooter in the Killzone series, developed specifically for the PlayStation Vita platform and powered by the stunning Killzone engine.

Starting just after the ending of the original Killzone, and revisiting many of the events from the Killzone trilogy, the game puts players in the rugged combat boots of a mercenary named Arran Danner. Danner is a former UCA-soldier who has no qualms about taking on paid contracts from the ISA as well as the Helghast.

When a seemingly routine mission to evacuate the Vektan Ambassador and his family in Pyrrhus goes awry, Danner discovers that the outcome of the war could very well depend on the fate of the Ambassador's young son.

With both sides going to increasingly desperate lengths to get hold of the boy, he begins to wonder whether the price of victory is really worth the paycheck.

We also have a brand-new trailer for you to enjoy:
