13w ago - Muteki Corporation Founder, President and CEO Bryan Sawler announced that Dragon Fantasy Book II is out on both PS3 and PlayStation Vita platforms today.
To quote: After almost two years, four PAX showings (as well as GDC, E3, etc) it's almost bittersweet to be finally announcing this.
It was just over a year ago that we first announced this game was coming to PSN. But you can't understand why that is until you look at what really went into this game...
Dragon Fantasy Book II's origin is a long tale, going back almost 20 years to when myself and Adam Rippon, the game's writer and creative director were just teenagers. Knowing nothing about what it takes to make games, we looked at the JRPGs we loved at the time and wanted to make our own.
Over a dozen failures later we eventually gave up and went on with life, ending up in the game industry and working together at a number of companies. It wasn't until just a few years ago that the passing of Adam's father brought back the desire to make Dragon Fantasy (now titled Dragon Fantasy Book I).
As far as generic 8-bit style JRPGs go, we had a great response and added a ton of content until it became the game we eventually released on PSN earlier this year.

A twin-stick shooter on a HD screen in the palm of your hands, with substantial replayability built in and, if I do say so myself, an addictive multiplayer game integral to the whole experience.
The multiplayer game has been through a few stages of Betas over the last couple of months, and we are immensely grateful to all everyone who took part - especially those who took the time to provide...
13w ago - Vogster Entertainment LLC Project Lead Artem Kuryavchenko announced that Carnivores HD tears into PS3 today!
To quote: Carnivores HD is a realistic hunting simulator that brings you to an ancient environment and lets you hunt for the most dangerous creatures that have ever existed.
You'll be hunting Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Ceratosaurus, and finally a T-Rex! There are also flying Pteranodons, and small and peaceful Gallimimuses.
Each level is an island about two square miles in size, and features a unique environment. There are deserts and jungles, volcanic islands, and deep forests. Each level comes in three flavors: daytime, evening, and misty.
Being a hunting simulator, the game renders wildlife realistically. Animals make use of natural senses - sight, hearing smell - that are unique to each creature.
Dinosaur behavior depends on the environment, weather, and injury state, so a wounded dinosaur will respond fearfully to your presence. Animals also interact with each other: herbivores avoid carnivores, small species avoid big ones. Dinosaurs also forage for food, water, take rests, and wander around the world.
Your arsenal consists of a rifle, sniper rifle and crossbow. You don't have to kill an animal, either, and you can equip...
14w ago - Giants Software Art Director and Co-owner Thomas Frey announced that Farming Simulator ploughs into PlayStation 3 today alongside a PS3 video trailer below.
To quote: Back in 2007 when we started work on the first version of Farming Simulator nobody at GIANTS Software would have expected this huge success. This week the success story continues with the release of Farming Simulator on PlayStation 3.
We at GIANTS are very proud of the fact that Farming Simulator has finally arrived on consoles. As a developer it was always our dream to release our game on a platform beside high-profile games like the GTA series, Uncharted and Gran Turismo.
With the console version, we bring a whole new experience to Farming Simulator. Besides the European setting, we've created an entirely new American world.
Inspired by typical American farms, this new and monumental terrain represents a total change of scenery, with new locations, fresh development opportunities for your farm and even bigger fields suitable for the largest agricultural machinery available in the game.
The game also offers new vehicles, providing a huge selection of farming vehicles the player may use and drive to develop their farm!...
