33w ago - Designer Mike Bithell announced today that Thomas Was Alone is officially released today on PS3 and PS Vita complete with DLC.
To quote: It's done. A game which began as a Flash game made over a weekend because my girlfriend was away and I was a bit bored, is today coming out on PS3 and PS Vita via PSN and PS+.
That last sentence was a bit of a mouthful. I apologize.
Thomas Was Alone is a game about friendship and jumping. As you can see from the images and videos no doubt littered amongst this post, it is also very much about rectangles.
If you've got PlayStation Plus and you're in the US, you'll get 20% off the game for a limited time, because of the Spring Fever sale. Which is awesome. Daffodils rock.
This version will also give you first access to some new stuff. There's a new DLC episode which tells the story of Benjamin, a new square with a jetpack and big ideas, and a commentary mode in the main game where you can listen to me going on and on about how clever I was putting the game together.
It's spellbinding. I'm listening to it as I write this, because I'm on a train and it's either that or Bowie's new album, which I've listened to twice. You should really listen to Bowie's album too. I'm not here to plug that...
34w ago - Muteki Corporation Founder, President and CEO Bryan Sawler has announced today via Sony's Blog that Dragon Fantasy Book I will be hitting PS3 and PS Vita tomorrow.
To quote: In August, we announced on PlayStation Blog that we would be releasing Dragon Fantasy Book II for PS Vita and PS3 early next year.
With the awesome response and large demand for the first game on those systems, we knew we had to make it happen. We didn't want to just push a port of what we already had, though - this was our chance to really make this game shine.
Plus, we get to take part in Sony's awesome Spring Fever promotion! Not only are we releasing the game to JRPG-loving fans out there, Sony is helping to ensure people actually find out about it! What does that mean to you? If you're a PlayStation Plus member, it means you get 20% off the game during launch week!
Don't know much about Dragon Fantasy Book I? Start by watching our brief trailer.
So where to begin... Oh, I don't know, how about redrawing almost every single piece of art in the game! Crazy? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely!
We decided to approach this in the style of a SNES special edition of a previously released NES game. We wanted to take the art we had, and...

35w ago - DrinkBox Studios COO Graham Smith announced alongside a launch trailer video that Guacamelee rolls onto PS3 and PS Vita today.
To quote: I'm extra excited to announce that Guacamelee! comes out today on PS3 and PS Vita via PSN.
We're releasing the game as part of the Spring Fever promotion: $14.99 will get you both the PS3 and PS Vita versions, with a 20% discount for PlayStation Plus members.
Still there? Then allow me to add that Guacamelee! is a metroid-vania style brawler that supports Cross-Buy, Cross-Save, Cross-Control, has a precious Platinum trophy, and comes complete with rapid punching action.
Punch, punch, punch! Speaking of which, you may now be saying, "Hey guy, what's up with all of the punch talk?" Take a look...
Well, when we started making Guacamelee! we knew we wanted to include punching, but not just ordinary punching. We built a proof-of-concept demo, a video of which I have included below for your approval.
As you can see, we had blocking, we had holds, and we had charge-up moves. You'll be interested to know that we now have none of those things! Why, you ask?
