Video: Sony Game Creator Reveals the Secrets of PSN's Dyad

50°
104w ago - Today Sony game creator Shawn McGrath has revealed the secrets of PSN's Dyad to fans as part of a new video trailer below.

To quote: Last week in New York City I was fortunate enough to show off Dyad, the almost-ready-done-really-soon-I-promise game coming to PSN for PS3. During our NYC showcase, the crew was kind enough to stop by and conduct a quick Q&A and gameplay session, and you can watch the results in this new original video.

Each of the game's 27 different levels touch upon a variety of mechanics and goals: forming long combos, racing, surviving as long as possible, hitting certain top speeds and more.

And the game's 26 special Trophy levels have challenging alternate goals, whether it's playing just by using sound or collecting objects as quickly as possible.

Since each level has a corresponding leaderboard to track online rankings, Dyad boasts a huge number of leaderboards - 52 in all, each requiring a unique set of skills to master.





I also wanted to mention that David Kanaga did the game's interactive music. Here's his Dyad EP, and you can hear more of his interactive music here.

Out of the gates today we have The House of the Dead 4 (move compatible) with a Plus discount of 30%, Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time (mmm, sandwich) and NHL 12.

We've got a new app for the Vita today. A little art based app with the simple name of Paint Park. Using the touch screen controls, you're able to draw, doodle, sketch and scribble whatever you're able to think of.

Feel like getting creative with photos taken with your Vita? You can do that, too! I wonder what amazing drawings users will manage to produce with this. Oh, before I forget, the app is also free. Colour me excited!

On Thursday, April 19 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Content Collection #1 will release on PSN, the first of four Content Collections available for purchase to CoD players.
