It was at the end of last year that I posted this (blog.tabinda.net/misc/auto-save-hell-to-all-game-developers/). It really took me away from gaming on the ps3 for a while. Earlier this year, I searched for a ps3 app that would sync a user’s game-saves to the cloud. I didn’t care which service was it, as long as it was free and easy to use.
Unfortunately, apart from Sony’s PS Plus service, there was no application/home-brew that accomplished this task. But I did find this. A user named gingerbread on the ps3hax forums had this idea about a Dropbox app that could work like a game-save synchronization application for the PS3.
I decided to take a shot at it and although the development went slow for several reasons, I eventually finished the first set of features I planned for.

Duly, the debut trailer for The Order: 1886 ticked all the boxes - yes, even the last one, making 2013 something of a banner year!
But while the first showing of Ready At Dawn's new creation was undoubtedly one of the highlights of this year's show, it also raised a fair few questions. Sure enough, I tracked down studio co-founder Ru Weerasuriya backstage in search of answers.
We'll be talking more about the game in the not too distant future, but in the meantime hopefully the following exchange will keep your interest piqued.
PlayStation.Blog: So, exactly what kind of game is The Order: 1886?
Ru Weerasuriya: The Order is a third person action adventure with shooting mechanics. It's very much story-based - it's a linear story-based game. We're trying to tell a story. It's what we call a filmic experience.
