PlayStation Mobile: EcoFish Makes a Splash Tomorrow

50°
94w ago - Eclipse Games Founder Eduardo Jimenez has announced today that EcoFish is making a PlayStation Mobile splash tomorrow.

Below are the details, to quote: EcoFish is a game I personally wanted to do for a long time. It's based on games from my childhood - games that I loved but for some reason haven't been re-done and re-invented a million times already.

If you liked old-school platformers you'll find lots of new games still being made in that genre, but if you look for games like QiX, Styx or Gal's Panic, you're not likely to find many.

It wasn't hard to convince the rest of the team since they played those classics too and loved the 'genre' as much as I did!

The core mechanic of the game consists of drawing lines starting from the borders of the playable area enclosing parts of it that are 'acquired'. If you enclose an enemy within the area you acquire, it is destroyed. We thought this kind of gameplay would fit particularly well on touchscreens and, of course, the PS Vita.

There are different objectives in every level, such as destroying a concrete enemy, eliminating all enemies, acquiring a certain percentage of the screen, and so on. We have deviated there from the original formula, as well as with the enemies.

We designed a...
 

Video: Dancing Dots: Take Rotastic for a Spin Tomorrow on PSN

50°
94w ago - Dancing Dots Managing Director Martial Hesse-Dreville has shared a new video trailer today inviting fans to take Rotastic for a spin tomorrow on PSN.

To quote: This is Martial Hesse-Dreville from Dancing Dots, here to tell you about our game - Rotastic - arriving on PSN tomorrow!

Now, how to best sum up what Rotastic is all about... well - imagine a knight. Got it? Good. Now give him a rope with a hook. Ok? Very well... now swing that knight around 80 levels filled with jewels and gems to collect.

Sounds simple? Well, maybe then I should tell you about the hundreds of deadly traps, cannons, razor-sharp blades, crazy chickens, black holes, flying dragons, and killer bats... it won't be easy!





The whole idea behind Rotastic is simple: we wanted to provide tons of fun while using a very simple game mechanic, and I think it worked. Using just one button, you latch your grappling hook onto the nearest anchor point, many of which are scattered around each level.

This swings you around to propel your knight through the stage, catching gems while avoiding traps and dodging enemies. With 80 levels (including 10 exclusive new levels for PlayStation 3!) of increasing difficulty, you can be sure...
 

Video: The Walking Dead - Episode 5: No Time Left Hits PSN Tomorrow

50°
96w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has announced that The Walking Dead Episode 5: No Time Left hits PSN tomorrow alongside a fresh video trailer below.

To quote: It's all been leading up to this! Tomorrow, [Register or Login to view links] releases what they've dubbed the "season finale" of The Walking Dead, which I suppose bodes well for the possibility of future installments.

For me, Telltale's series represents the best of the adventure genre, with likeable characters, grim scenarios, and a player-guided narrative.

I've made no secret that The Walking Dead has quickly become one of my favorite gaming experiences of the year, and I'm dying to see how Lee Everett's final chapter plays out in this companion piece to Robert Kirkman's much-loved graphic novel series.





(Spoiler) Sad to say that Kenny won't be joining me on the final journey, though. What about you? Who are you taking with you?
 

Tekken Tag Tournament 2: PSN Release, New Characters Tomorrow

100°
97w ago - Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui announced today that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be getting an official PSN release with some free new characters tomorrow!

Below are the details, to quote: I wanted to give the PlayStation Nation the inside scoop on some cool things we have coming up for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 this week. Starting on Tuesday, November 13th, we will be offering Tekken Tag Tournament 2 as a download on PlayStation Store for $49.99.

For those of you doing the math right now, that's $10 cheaper than a Blu-ray copy of the game. And for those of you who have not purchased the game yet and are looking for another excuse to download or grab a copy, we will be releasing the final timed character roster update this week as well! BOOM! HYPE! WISDOM!

Monday night we'll unleash the final Tekken fighters from their cages and let them loose on the internet for our dedicated fans. The new unlocked characters for feature three returning favorites: Dr. Boskonovitch, Unknown and Violet.

It's been a while since players have been able to get their hands on these characters and play as them themselves, with Dr. B last playable in Tekken 3, Unknown last playable in the original Tekken Tag Tournament and Violet in Tekken 4.

It's been a long time,...
 

Sony Announces PSN Puzzler Closure Discounted to $4.99 Tomorrow

50°
99w ago - Eyebrow Interactive Lead Designer & Programmer Tyler Glaiel has announced today that PSN puzzler Closure will be discounted to $4.99 beginning tomorrow.

Below are the details, to quote: You may remember me as the designer of Closure, a game I created with artist Jon Schubbe and musician Chris Rhyne that made its debut on PSN earlier this year.

Since release, our eerie puzzler has received quite a bit of praise from both fans and press. People love the game, and we want to make sure that everyone has a chance to play this game we spent so long working on.

So, as a thank you to all who have played it (and haven't!), and in the spirit of the season, we're launching a special Halloween sale this week! Halloween is a perfect holiday to spend checking out Closure, an eerie puzzle platformer that takes place mostly in darkness, where anything not illuminated simply ceases to exist.

The response to Closure has been nothing short of fantastic. Our Metacritic reviews have been universally positive, but as a game designer I'm even more proud to see the video reactions and "let's plays" of our game.

Whether it was Giant Bomb's quick look of the game, Total Biscuit's "WTF is?" [Register or Login to view links], or even...
