25w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared a Transistor interview today on why Indies Matter on PlayStation 4 / PS4 below.
To quote: One of the stand-out moment at this year's PlayStation press briefing at E3, for me at least, was when eight independent developers took to the stage to show off their PS4 titles.
As Adam Boyes explained following the show, indie games are a key part of what makes PS4 such a special platform, and it was a landmark moment seeing these fantastic teams sharing the limelight with AAA titles such as Assassin's Creed IV and Final Fantasy XV.
Leading them out were Greg Kasavin and Amir Rao of Supergiant Games, who announced that Transistor, their bewitchingly beautiful follow-up to smash hit action RPG Bastion, will be debuting on PS4 when development wraps up in 2014.
I caught up with Greg on the showfloor the following day to pick his brains about the role of indies on our new platform, and to find out a little more about Transistor.
PlayStation.Blog: Supergiant started out just a few years ago in 2009 as a humble developer with just two staff members (it's now up to 10). Fast forward to 2013 and you're presenting your new game onstage at the PlayStation E3 press conference. That must feel surreal...
26w ago - Zombie Studios Communications Manager Collin Moore shared a new video trailer today showcasing FPS and F2P on PS4 in their upcoming PlayStation 4 title Blacklight: Retribution below.
To quote: Summer is upon us and another E3 is here! Even with the unusually sunny skies here in Seattle the last couple months, we here at Zombie Studios have been hard at work on getting Blacklight: Retribution ready to be playable on the show floor at E3 2013.
When we announced Blacklight: Retribution on PS4 a couple months ago, we knew we had to be on the E3 show floor. We instantly set a goal to get the game running and be ready for E3.
After a number of long weeks, lots of dinners in the office, and a new coffee machine, we are thrilled to have Blacklight: Retribution playable for everyone in attendance.
For those unfamiliar with Blacklight: Retribution, it's an action-packed free-to-play first-person shooter that allows you to customize your character in millions of ways.
You can change every aspect of your weapon from the barrel, scope, muzzle, and receiver. Want to make your character feel like your character? Alter them anyway you want, swapping out everything from individual pieces of armor to their accessories to cosmetic items that show your elite status.
26w ago - HumaNature Studios Founder Greg Johnson shared a video today that offers a first look at Doki-Doki Universe in action on the PlayStation 4 / PS4 console below.
To quote: Hi. I'm Greg, the designer of Sony's new game Doki-Doki Universe and I run a small game studio called HumaNature Studios. In years past, I created a game you may be familiar with, called ToeJam and Earl.
Announced just last month, Doki-Doki Universe is a game about humanity and emotional expression. It's sweet and quirky and hopefully a little thought provoking.
If you're interested in a change of pace, you may find it interesting. We hope so, anyway. To give you a better idea for how the game plays, we've put together this fun trailer for you:
Doki-Doki Universe is more than a game. It's a cross-platform ecosystem built around a unique universe of personal discovery. And as you can see in the trailer, the universe you explore is vibrant, fun and playful.
There are tons of different places to explore, characters to meet, objects to collect and conjure up, and there are even fun reflective quizzes to take.
However, the most important thing you should take away is that Doki-Doki Universe is about creating an emotionally engaging experience that will help you learn about yourself.
