142w ago - Square Enix Associate Product Manager Charles McCarter has unveiled the official launch trailer for Moon Diver today, which hits PSN on March 29, 2011.
To quote: We showed the first video for Moon Diver at E3 last year. And, although all we had on the floor was a video, the response was overwhelming.
People wanted to know when they would be able to get their hands on "that game that looks like Strider." Well, that time is fast approaching, as Moon Diver is part of the PlayStation Network's Spring Fever promotion.
Moon Diver puts you in the role of one of five elite warriors who have been given orders to reclaim the Earth after a horrible catastrophe. It's a tough job, to be sure, which is why you don't have to go it alone. Up to three friends can join you in either local or on-line coop as you hack, slash, jump, and slice your way to saving humanity.
Working together, you're stronger, and nowhere is that more evident than in the powerful combos called Moonsault Combinations that you and your friends can execute together. Sure, the enemies are really bad. And some are really big. But with a little hard work,...
142w ago - Hothead Games Director of Game Technology Joel DeYoung has made available a PSN launch trailer video today on Swarm which is hitting PlayStation Network soon.
To quote: We're super excited that Swarm is finally about to be released on PlayStation Network. The genesis of the original idea for the game stretches all the way back to 2006, shortly after we started Hothead.
There was an indie video game developer contest we wanted to enter, so we brainstormed a ton of ideas on what to submit. Dr. Mike Hayward, Hothead's resident Ph.D., brought forward a concept based on his doctoral research in artificial life.
He called it Swarm and it had plenty of science cred. We thought this was our contest winner, so we came up with a cute adorable character to go with his tech, the swarmite, and got to work on a prototype.
In the end we did very well in that contest, placing in the final four, winning the people's choice vote, and garnering $300,000 in winnings. Every time we wore a Swarm t-shirt in public, invariably someone would ask us about the character. People really seemed to like it. So we knew we were onto something. We just had one problem: what we created wasn't really a game.
