4h ago - Project Lead Sanabu Washizuka announced that Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God is out today on PS Vita.
To quote: What a delectably delicious day it is! The roguelike RPG Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God launches today. Sorcery Saga is exclusive to PS Vita and is available at both retail and on PlayStation Store.
Like the name suggests, it's wacky, fun, and a real challenge. Today, we wanted to give all you folks an overview of the game.
So what is Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God all about?
Sorcery Saga tells the story of Pupuru and her brave quest to save her favorite curry restaurant from the big, bad curry chain that's just moved into town. Harmless, right? Wrong! In order to do so, Pupuru and her grumpy (and always hungry) creature friend, Kuu, must travel to find ingredients to make the legendary curry.
Along the way, Pupuru meets many interesting and strange people, including the rather forward Gigadis and the mysterious, non-committal Puni.
How Does This Thing Play?
As Pupuru, you'll enter a dungeon and travel on a grid-like system. Attacks are turn-based, but what makes Sorcery Saga truly challenging is its roguelike quality. Meaning, if you fall in a dungeon, you lose all your items...

2w ago - XSeed Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz announced today that Ys: Memories of Celceta is out today for PS Vita.
To quote: It's here! Ys: Memories of Celceta, the latest installment in Nihon Falcom's storied Ys series, is out today for PS Vita. It's $39.99 for the digital or physical standard edition, and $59.99 for the swanky Silver Anniversary Edition.
The Silver Edition comes with a 130-page "Travel Journal" full of art, maps, and strategies, a cloth map depicting the lands of Celceta, a three CD compilation of original and arranged music, and a logo-emblazoned compass.
Last time on the blog, I spoke of Celceta's myriad features, its basic premise, and the history of the many games called "Ys IV," but one question I kept hearing was, "Is this a good place to start if I've never played an Ys game before?"
And while I did my best to reassure you all that you'll be just fine starting your adventure here in Celceta, I thought it might be prudent to go into a little more detail on what the series is, how it's changed over the years, and just how accessible its games really are.
So... let's start at the beginning, shall we?
The Ys series debuted in 1987 on various Japanese computer systems, and was an instant hit due to its fast-paced action, its...
3w ago - Mossmouth's Derek Yu announced today that daily challenges are now available in Spelunky on PS3 and PS Vita platforms.
Below are the details, to quote: Hey, everyone! It's Derek once again. First off, thank you for your tremendous support of Spelunky on PS3 and PS Vita.
You've made it clear that it was the right choice bringing the game to PlayStation! We're really happy about how the game has been received (generally with much glee, followed by screams of anguish, followed by more glee).
But I'm really here to talk about our first update, which is out now. Of course, every game launches with some number of bugs, and Blitworks has been working hard to fix as many of those as possible. The slowdown in certain areas of the game was probably the biggest issue, and that's been addressed. They also fixed a bug that was preventing certain Trophies from being earned.
Also, if you've been watching streams of people playing Spelunky on PC, you may have noticed that that version of the game has a unique feature called the Daily Challenge, where each day a set of levels is generated that has the same seed for everyone playing it. If you get a high score on the Daily Challenge, you can really attribute it to your skill and knowledge of the game, rather than the luck of the draw (i.e....

Just in the nick of time, we've launched the Tearaway community site - Tearaway.me - which is where all your photos and papercraft models will be displayed.
