Video: Sony Announces VizionEck PS4 is Coming to PlayStation 4

11w ago - VizionEck Founder and Lead Developer Michael Armbrust announced via Sony's blog today that VizionEck PS4 is coming to PlayStation 4 with details and a video trailer below.

To quote: Hello! Today's the day that VizionEck on PS4 gets announced to the world. I'm Michael Armbrust, the founder of VizionEck. I'm also the lead developer of VizionEck.

Did you catch that? Yes, our studio and our studio's first game have matching names. VizionEck is making VizionEck. So what is VizionEck (the game)?

The announcement trailer has a lot of secrets and game features hidden in it. If you didn't put the clues together, I'll help you out with some of the basics. VizionEck is technically an FPS. It has very little in common with the traditional FPS though. In the game you play as a Ranger - essentially just a cube.

He's pretty simplistic in design, isn't he? VizionEck's art-style is focused on being clean and elegant. We really love the prospect of making a game that's mathematically "exact." Almost everything follows a strict set of rules. The resulting world feels extremely harmonious 99% of the time.

It also creates a great environment for the gameplay. One example of this is how VizionEck's health system works. As a Ranger, your health is displayed as the brightness of your...

11w ago - Tozai Games Public Relations Representative David Bruno shared a new video trailer below today announcing that R-Type Dimensions is coming to PS3 on May 20th, 2014.

To quote: Hola, PlayStation.Blog readers. It's been a while, hasn't it? I hope everyone is having a splendid week thus far, and that you all had an awesome weekend.

May is one of my favorite months. It starts off early with Star Wars "May the 4th" festivities, and then jumps immediately into Cinco de Mayo, without a break in between the two days. It's like one big 48-hour celebration, and I love it!

But now that the party is over you may find yourselves asking "Well, what else do we have to look forward to this month?" Oh, I don't know... how about Tozai Games bringing R-Type Dimensions to PS3 on May 20th!

Yup, that's right, the PS3 shoot 'em up library is about to explode with not only one, but two fully-remastered R-Type games with new HD graphics, music, and features!

Tozai is going at this one with their lasers-a'-blazing, bringing both R-Type and R-Type II together as R-Type Dimensions. Players will be getting R-Type, featuring all 8 original R-Type levels, and R-Type II, featuring all 6 original levels. But wait, hold the phones, there's more!

Tozai isn't just releasing some...

12w ago - Sony Vice President, Developer and Publisher Relations guru Adam Boyes shared a roundup summary today of 12 new Indies coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita complete with videos below!

To quote: Hello PlayStation fans! We held an awesome event at our offices yesterday, and in case you missed some of our new game announcements I wanted to round them up for you below. Also note that all of these titles will be making their console debut on PlayStation platforms.

Independent developers are continuing to create incredible games for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, and we can't wait to bring them to you throughout this year and beyond.

Apotheon (PS4)





"Looking back, making our upcoming action sidescroller Apotheon in the visage of ancient Greek pottery seemed like an obvious choice. Everything is already there.

The 2D perspective, the awesome narrative and setting possibilities, heroes fighting monsters and magical goat-men with no pants... All we really had to do was figure out how to make the art on those pots move around and make it into an interesting game."

Axiom Verge (PS4/PS Vita)

Mossmouth Reveals Spelunky PS4 is Coming to PlayStation 4

12w ago - Mossmouth's Derek Yu revealed today that Spelunky is coming to PlayStation 4 with details and some PS4 screenshots below.

To quote: Hello, past, present, and future Spelunky fans! I'll keep it short and simple: Spelunky is coming to PS4!

We're once again teaming up with BlitWorks, who did a great job on bringing the game to PS3 and PS Vita. For PS4, we want to do even more - like bump up the graphics to 1080p, let players upload replays to the leaderboards, add more social features to the Daily Challenge, and otherwise take advantage of the PS4′s unique hardware.

I attribute a lot of Spelunky's success to sharing and streaming, and since the PS4 is built in great part around those ideas, we want to make sure that we do everything we can to support that culture! Let us know in the comments if there's anything else you'd like to see us add.

If you already bought Spelunky on PS3 and Vita, thank you so much! You'll also own the game on PS4 when it comes out, since we're including it as part of cross buy.

But if you don't have it on console yet, the PS4 version launch would be a great time to see what it's all about, since you'll also get the game on PS3 and PS Vita!
 

Video: RPG Platformer Chasm is Coming to PlayStation 4 This Year

12w ago - Discord Games Inc Founder James Petruzzi announced that RPG Platformer Chasm is coming to PlayStation 4 this year.

To quote: Hello, PlayStation fans! My name is James Petruzzi, and I'm the Producer of [Register or Login to view links], a procedurally-generated RPG Platformer coming to PS4 later this year.

In Chasm, players take up the role of Daltyn, a young soldier sent to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a mining crew in the remote mountain town of Karthas. Upon arrival you learn the town has been cut off from the outside world by supernatural forces.

Now trapped, you are left with no option but to explore the mines below the town and uncover the source of the disturbances. Only by gaining new special abilities, evading dangerous traps, and defeating hordes of deadly enemies can you hope to save Karthas - and possibly the world!

One of the hardest parts of game design is creating a unique and interesting world for players to explore. The Metroidvania genre has always been popular among exploration fans, and utilizes unlockable items or abilities that help the player reach previously inaccessible areas.

The goal of our latest game is to make an authentic Metroidvania-style experience that utilizes procedural generation to keep the experience...
