Video: The Forest: Open-World Survival Horror Hitting PlayStation 4

50°
2w ago - Endnight Games Co-Founder Anna Terekhova announced today that open-world survival horror game The Forest is hitting PlayStation 4 with a PS4 video trailer below!

To quote: Think back to your childhood days: playing outside, building a fort, skipping a stone on a lake... now add cannibals who want to tear you apart.

This is 'The Forest' and it's on its way to PS4.





There are no missions, no NPC's telling you what to do and no text in the middle of the screen telling you to 'Follow.' You know those parts in games where some character is yelling at you, telling you what to do and to do it faster? Those moments' drive us crazy.

When we're in a game world we want to choose what we do and how we do it. This has been the driving force behind all the decisions we make. What would give players the most freedom and options. We think the best stories in games are the ones that occur on their own, the ones you experience naturally in the world.

Something we've learned over the past 6 months is that people love to share their gameplay experiences, as well as watch other people's playthroughs. Using the PS4 Share feature makes this even easier for players.

People can show off the bases...
 

Techland on Building the Open World of Dying Light on PS4

50°
3w ago - Techland Game Producer Tymon Smektala shared details today on building the open world of Dying Light on PS4 below.

To quote: As we wrap up the production of Dying Light, I took some time recently to sit down and reflect on the incredible adventure the development of this game was.

The team members made me promise that at the release party for the game, I'll perform a rap song for them (Don't ask) and I wanted to write lyrics that would recount the time we spent on this project.

As I started digging deep in my memory I realized that I need to face one (perhaps the only one) personal regret that I have from that period. Early in the game's promotion, I said in one of the interviews that I'm not really fond of the "Mirror's Edge comparisons" journalists were making about our game.

Taken out of context it might have sounded to some ears that I didn't have respect for Mirror's Edge, and it was certainly spun that way by some online media and internet commenters. That's not what I meant!

What I meant was that Dying Light is a very complex game, and I simply wanted it to have a better, more accurate description. I sincerely felt that in our case the blurb "It's Mirror's Edge with zombies" didn't really do justice to what we aimed for with Dying Light.
 

Videos: Miegakure for PS4: Exploring a 4D World on PlayStation 4

50°
3w ago - President of MTB Design Works Inc Marc ten Bosch shared some new PS4 Miegakure videos today spotlighting the exploring of a 4D world on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Miegakure is a 4D game. It lets players explore a detailed 4D world and use their ability to move in 4D to perform miraculous feats. In this game, the fourth dimension is not time! It is an actual fourth dimension of space, that works just like the first three dimensions we are familiar with. If you count time, this game is 5D!

For a while games used to be 2D, taking place solely along two directions. For example, a game character could only move forwards and backwards, or jump up and down. Then came computers powerful enough to render 3D graphics, which allowed for full 3D movement: up / down, backwards / forwards and left / right.

(Of course, the graphics we see, while they are computed in 3D, are displayed on a 2D screen. They are projected down from 3D to 2D, in a way that mimics how our eyes perceive the third dimension.)





But it doesn't stop there. If in a 2D game every object's position is represented in the computer using two numbers, and if in a 3D game every object's position is represented using three numbers, what if each...
 

Sony Invites Fans to Enter the Impossible World of Relativity on PS4

6w ago - Developer and Designer Willy Chyr invites fans to enter the impossible world of Relativity on PS4 today with details below.

To quote: Hello! My name is Willy Chyr - I'm an artist and indie game developer based in Chicago. I'm happy to announce that my game Relativity will be coming to PS4 in 2015, and you will get to try it at PlayStation Experience next month in Las Vegas!

Relativity is a game that re-imagines the laws of the universe. What if the normal rules of gravity no longer applied? The basic mechanic of the game is the ability to change gravity, allowing you to re-orient yourself to walk on walls and ceilings. In this world, up is down and down is up. It's all relative.

Let's take a look at what an early puzzle in the game is like. In the gif below, we need to get the purple block to stay on the purple square in order to unlock a door, but the block keeps sliding down. The solution: we lock the blue block in place while in the blue gravity, and then use it as a shelf to hold up the purple block.

What you just saw is the basic gameplay mechanic. But Relativity is more than just about stacking cubes - there is an entire world full of wonder and impossible...
 

TowerFall Dark World Expansion Coming Early 2015 to PlayStation 4

50°
6w ago - Indie Game Developer Matt Makes Games Inc Matt Thorson confirmed today that their TowerFall Dark World Expansion is coming in early 2015 to PlayStation 4.

To quote: It's hard to believe that it's been 8 months since TowerFall Ascension launched on PS4. I have to thank all of our wonderful fans on PlayStation - the community response has been fantastic.

Since launching TowerFall, we've had countless requests for new levels, characters, power-ups, and modes. A lot of your suggestions have been really valuable, and after I recovered from the game's launch back in March, I began forming new ideas of my own. Slowly but surely, our plans for an expansion took shape. I'm excited to announce that the Dark World Expansion will hit PS4 in early 2015.

We want to call this an expansion rather than DLC, because it expands the game in every direction rather than providing small incremental additions. Approaching it this way allows us to tie all the new stuff together in a very cohesive manner. For you this means more playable archers, levels, modes, power-ups, variants, trials, and more.

Joining the roster we have the red archer, the Vainglorious Ghoul. As her appearance suggests, she captains an infamous ghost ship known as The Amaranth. The Amaranth, it turns out, is also one of four...
