Rain: The Story Behind 2013's Most Intriguing PSN Release

100°
80w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared details today on the Rain: the story behind 2013's most intriguing PSN release below.

To quote: Hopefully you found the time last week to take a look at the haunting new trailer for Rain - the new adventure game from Japan Studio heading to PlayStation 3 later this year.

It's shaping up to be one of the most intriguing PSN titles of the year, channeling the same sense of freewheeling creativity that made Journey, The Unfinished Swan and Tokyo Jungle such stand-out experiences.

The setup is simple - you play as a lone boy who finds himself alone in a mysterious rain-soaked city. The twist? He's completely invisible, except for the outline of the precipitation running off his body.

You'll guide him through this strange world as he goes in pursuit of a girl who's seemingly suffering the exact same predicament, while also trying to evade malevolent hostile forces.

I sat down with the game's producer Noriko Umemura when she was in London last week and dug a little deeper into this fascinating title.

PlayStation.Blog: Rain has one of the more unusual set-ups in recent memory. Where did the idea come from?

Noriko Umemura: When we gathered together, we had one thing in common - we wanted...

Video: Pool Nation Lines Up PlayStation Network Release Today

82w ago - Today Gemma Jessop of Cherry Pop Games shared some video footage announcing that Pool Nation lines up a PlayStation Network release today!

To quote: Doctor! Doctor!! I think I'm turning into a pool ball. Get to the back of the queue!

Dawn breaks over a wet and grey Manchester. It's raining. Again. Outside the office window, a shopping trolley is having a race down the Irwell with a slightly crazed duck. The big money is on the duck.

Inside, it's approaching fever pitch as the finishing touches are put to our first game, Pool Nation. A small band of just 10 occasionally-presentable gamers, we're giving our balls that one last polish. Ball obsession may sound like something a '70s DJ may be afflicted with, but here at [Register or Login to view links], in one way or another, we're all smitten.

We've even been known to dress up as giant pool balls and scare small children.





In Huw's corner, he's doing what astrophysicists do best - bouncing pool balls around and making sure they behave themselves. To Huw, a spot of ball-on-ball interaction is physics porn, pure and simple. Nobody describes the inner dynamics of what happens on the baize, second by second,...
