24w ago - Dynamighty Lead Designer David Nottingham shared a video from E3 2013 today showcasing CounterSpy infiltrating PlayStation 3 and PS Vita consoles below.
To quote: So last week was a crazy E3 blur for us at Dynamighty.
Thanks to the good folks at Sony we were able to show CounterSpy to lots of people in their booth. While we were not showing on the main floor we still had a great presence with lots of buzz and even an award nomination! (Thanks Hardcore Gamer!) and we also released our first trailer for the game!
At the show, we were sandwiched between two absolutely beautiful games, Puppeteer, which looks gorgeous, and Beyond: Two Souls, which I swear, people were mistaking for a PS4 title, it looked that good. It was humbling but also inspiring to see the company we were in.
John and I were running between two locations, as the game was being shown in two areas, plus we did some interviews. This live interview with Gamespot was a particular highlight.
It was our first EVER live interview talking about our game and as John was demoing the controller stopped working! I can...

24w ago - Double Eleven Limited Chief Operating Officer Mark South announced today that PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD is coming to PS Vita.
Below are the details, to quote: Double Eleven, Ltd been entrusted with the keys to the kingdom for classic series such as LittleBigPlanet and Limbo.
For us, PixelJunk Monsters sits alongside those hallowed classics. In designing PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD for PS Vita, we wanted to take the fabulous PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe and make it an even better experience.
We worked closely with Q-Games to get it right, and then chose the name "Ultimate HD" at the end of development. We hope that's what we have created!
We've been big fans of Monsters and the other PixelJunk games for some time; the sharp, colorful graphics and addictive gameplay had us hooked. Monsters is one of those games that is super casual, but incredibly difficult at the same time: a quality which made us - and many others - keep coming back for more.
The tower defense premise is very familiar, but Monsters' effortless execution sets it apart from other games in the genre. We realized that if Monsters were remade today, it would still stand out amongst other games in the genre.
So we set out to make the definitive version of PixelJunk Monsters...
25w ago - Beatshapers Founder and CEO Alexey Menshikov unveiled ZRun on PS Vita today, inviting fans to run to survive this Summer!
To quote: Hey, it's Alexey from Beatshapers! I'm here to present our new game from E3 2013, ZRun. This is a third-person beat-'em-up game, coming this summer to PS Vita.
The player assumes the role of a young, vacationing college student, who finds himself in the middle of an outbreak. He's not a hero; he just wants to survive and escape this nightmare.
• Non-stop running action. Run and avoid obstacles - hitting obstacles hurts you and makes you an easy target for zombies.
• Evade or attack zombies - if they attack you, you'll get hurt and die.
• Watch your stamina - every action costs some. If a player fights too much, he may end up not having enough stamina to jump over an obstacle when needed.
• Use objects as weapons - bats, tubes, machetes, guitars, swords, axes, etc.
• Use firearms (guns, shotguns, automatic rifles) to get rid of zombies quickly and effectively – but watch your ammo.
• Multiple characters, each with their own distinct melee attack. • It's not shown in the trailer, but the current hero has a special side-kick which is handy for longer distances.
