23w ago - Seaven Studio Co-founder Olivier Penot announced today that Ethan: Meteor Hunter is coming soon to PSN.
Below are the details, to quote: Hello! We are Seaven Studio, a brand new indie studio based in Lille, north of France. We are seven former employees of Hydravision (who developed Obscure 1&2 and Alone in the Dark), which closed down back in September last year.
We were part of a team working on a new project called Ethan: Meteor Hunter when Hydravision closed down, so we decided to start a new studio looking to self-fund and self-publish our own projects. We bought the Ethan IP and got to work!
About our first game, then. You are Ethan, a little rodent that was hit by meteor fragments. These fragments gave him the power to move objects around and freeze time.

There are multiple ways to solve the puzzles, which blend arcade action and reflection. Progression through levels isn't linear - there are multiple challenges in each stage - and Ethan...
24w ago - Today Sony Worldwide Studios Art Director Gavin Moore announced that a Puppeteer demo is coming soon to PlayStation 3 fans.
To quote: We're getting closer and closer to the release of Puppeteer! In preparation for release, I'm happy to announce that a playable demo demonstrating the essence of Puppeteer's gameplay will be made available in Europe prior to launch.
We plan on packing loads of content into the demo, and we hope it will give you a great idea of how the finished game will feel when it hits PlayStation 3 on 11th September.
While we're on the topic of demos, maybe some of you have heard of Puppeteer's 'Rehearsal Edition', which releases on Japan's PlayStation Store this week.
The Rehearsal Edition is not a traditional game demo but rather a uniquely regional way to introduce the world of Puppeteer.
The brief interactive stage specially designed for this concept gives Japanese gamers a peak behind the curtain at the cast of Puppeteer as they prepare for the 'big show'. The characters can be seen busily rehearsing while the crew put together the elaborate set pieces to be used in the bunraku - or 'puppet theatre' - that serves as the game's setting.
In order to let Japanese players fully soak in the atmosphere,...
