Video: Hohokum is Coming to PS4, PS3, PS Vita on August 12th

7w ago - Honeyslug Designer and Co-Founder Ricky Haggett made available a video today announcing that Hohokum is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms on August 12th, 2014.

To quote: Hey folks! We're back with another behind-the-scenes look at Hohokum, and to share that Hohokum will be available on August 12th, 2014 for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.

This one is focused on the roots of the game's design. A question we've been asked a lot is "How did you come up with this game?" The answer isn't straightforward, but hopefully this video will help to illustrate something of the process, as well as reveal some of our inspirations and design goals.





Dick and I started designing Hohokum back in 2008, and since that time it's gone through a lot of changes. For the first few years it was a side-project - something we worked on between other things, or when inspiration struck.

We didn't have a clear mechanic "hook" when starting out - more an overall sense of wanting to make a game that was relaxing and evoked a particular sense of free-form play. Over time this approach allowed the game we have today to emerge organically. I'm not sure we could have done it any other way.

Much of what the game is today...

7w ago - Animator Scott Benson announced today alongside a PS4 video trailer that Night in the Woods is coming to PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: We're super happy to announce that Night In The Woods is coming out on PS4! You'll be able to play our little game in the comfort of your living room, den, or Dedicated PlayStation Room.

Night In The Woods is an adventure/exploration game with a heavy focus on story, character, and place. You'll be doing some running and jumping around, a lot of extracurricular activities, some bass playing, some smashing of things, and a lot of hanging out with your townie friends.

Night In The Woods takes place in the crumbling town of Possum Springs, a dead-end backwater that is barely holding on after the mining jobs left. Mae the cat is a college dropout who has returned home to reclaim her teenage life with her friends who stayed in town.

Bea stayed home from college to take over the family business after a death sent her family into a tailspin. Gregg and Angus are highschool sweethearts, working hard to get out of Possum Springs. Germ is a weird kid that hangs around. No one knows what his deal is.





What Mae finds, however, is that life and her friends...
 

Video: Bridging Generations in Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark

7w ago - Activision Lead Producer Andy Owen is bridging generations in Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark on both PS4 and PS3 consoles with a fresh video trailer below!

To quote: 2014 marks thirty years since giant, sentient robots from outer space brought their ancient war to our world and changed the way we look at the common, everyday tractor trailer.

When Hasbro asked us to play a role in ushering in the Transformers franchise's fourth decade with a new video game, we knew paying respect to that tradition - that shared history - had to be central to the experience we delivered.

That mission statement became Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, a third-person action adventure game that crosses the cosmos, intersecting with Generation One, Paramount Pictures' live-action films, and Activision's Cybertron titles to bridge these storied worlds for the very first time.

The hunt for the illusive and catastrophic Dark Spark - the calamitous counterpart to the Matrix of Leadership, capable of bending the universe to the user's will - is one which will launch players through the fabric of time and space.

The vulnerable human communities of Earth in the present and the war-torn, industrial labyrinths of Cybertron's shattered past will each play prominently throughout the...
 

Video: Sony Catches Up with the Indie 9 Developers from E3 2013

7w ago - Sony Vice President, Developer and Publisher Relations guru Adam Boyes caught up with the Indie 9 developers from E3 2013 today to discuss this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo below.

To quote: With E3 2014 mere days away, I wanted to take a quick trip down memory lane to E3 2013. Back then, I had the incredible pleasure of introducing nine indie developers making PS4 games on-stage during our press conference - probably my proudest moment of the show.

We thought it would be fun to check-in with these nine developers one year later, seeing what it has been like for them to develop on PS4 and work with PlayStation in general.





Hopefully you've been following the development of these nine indie games, as well as the other great indie titles PS4 has to offer. Of the "indie nine," we've seen the launch of Don't Starve, Outlast (and its Whistleblower DLC), Mercenary Kings, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, and most recently Transistor.

Such different game experiences from each other, but each so entertaining in their own right - with Don't Starve I was thoroughly studying the migration and mating patterns of the Beefalo, and don't even get me started about Outlast... Even while playing in broad daylight with...
