Video: Hohokum: The Right Kind of Wonky on PS4, PS3, PS Vita

50°
11w ago - Hohokum Co-creator Richard Hogg posted up a video today dubbed The Right Kind of Wonky spotlighting Hohokum for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: Hello there! We're nearly finished making Hohokum for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, and we're excited for its launch this Summer!

For me, this past month has mostly been about all those final tweaks to the art. Making sure I'm happy with absolutely everything in the game.

Some might call this "polish," but polish implies a smoothness and shyness that somehow doesn't seem right for my work on Hohokum. Today I was re-drawing some wonky hotdog-trees. They're still pretty wonky but now it's the right kind of wonky.

So, yeah. We're nearly done with the biggest and most ambitious endeavor of my life. It's an exciting time and also a time for reflection...





Recently we were filmed for the first of a series of developer diaries that touch on key components that make up the world of Hohokum. Our first video is about the Art of Hohokum, featuring myself and Ricky Haggett.

We get a lot of questions about how the art style came about, what our process is like, and how our collaboration works. There is some sketchbook stuff that you might...

Hands-on the new with PS Vita

PS Vita's new design has tons of tweaks and adjustments, aside from the obvious thinner design and weight reduction. The Start, Select, Power, and PS buttons have been raised slightly, making them easier to press.

The grips on the back of the system have grown a bit, resulting in a more comfortable experience and less accidental taps on the rear touch pad. The edges of the system are more rounded, which just feels better. The display is now LCD based, but I didn't...
 

Sony Announces God of War Collection is Out Today on PS Vita

50°
11w ago - Santa Monica Studio Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman announced that God of War Collection is out today on PS Vita!

To quote: God of War defined the word "epic" like no other when it debuted on PS2 in 2005, introducing an iconic character to PlayStation fans worldwide - Kratos.

Once the servant of Ares (who saved the Spartan General and his army from annihilation in battle), Kratos was tricked into murdering his family, forcing his metamorphosis into the "Ghost of Sparta." Now, chained by the Blades of Chaos, Kratos unlocks the memories of his past, seeking redemption for his sins and vengeance against Ares, the God of War.

This is where the story of Kratos begins, a saga in which players will encounter a skyscraper-sized Leviathan, explore a twisted temple on the back of a massive Titan, decimate enemies with 100 hit combos with the mighty Blades of Chaos, and discover gaming moments that will stay with them forever.





I'll personally never forget "I am what the Gods have made me!" I'd like to think that line alone inspired a generation of gamers.

Now, it's time to bring the legacy of God of War and God of War II to PS Vita, so that no matter where you are, you all can experience the...
 

Video: Titan Attacks! Out Today on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita Platforms

50°
11w ago - Curve Studios Marketing Manager Rob Clarke announced that Titan Attacks is out today on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: It's been interesting working on a game that's very open about its debt to '80s arcade platformers, especially speaking as someone who got a space invader permanently tattooed on his wrist at the tender age of 23.

I guess we all show our love for classic gaming in different ways, and while mine was several hours of pain in a tattoo parlor in Camden, UK, indie developer Puppygames had the much smarter idea of creating Titan Attacks!, a love letter to pure arcade action that launches today for $11.99.

You can spell it with or without the exclamation mark, but we think it adds that extra level of excitement if you keep it in.





We've been working on Titan Attacks! here at Curve since the holiday, and it's our very first PS4, PS3, and PS Vita cross buy game. One of the cool things we've seen with Titan Attacks! during development has been just watching people play the game.

We've taken it to several different shows here in the UK and abroad, and every time someone sits down to play they are nearly instantly engrossed in the action and often reluctant to stop playing,...
