Frima Producer Details Young Thor for PS3 and PSP Minis on PSN

50°
215w ago - Today Frima Executive Producer Martin Brouard has shared details on Young Thor for PS3 and PSP Minis which is now available on PSN.

To quote: Last week's launch of Young Thor has been a tremendous occasion for our studio, and finally launching one of the biggest mini titles to date has brought up a lot of warm praise and even some questions from the fans.

In short, I'd love to take this opportunity to tell you how this project came about, and fill you in on our unique approach to minis.

Nearly three years ago, an idea came to us for a project surrounding a fresh take on Norse mythology. We wanted to make something that we'd enjoy as hardcore gamers, but also something for all ages that our families could dive into at the same time.

While we weren't exactly sure where we would decide to take the game, our imaginations ran wild before we got into the actual game design itself. We created our own [Register or Login to view links] for Young Thor that helped us wrap our heads around what we wanted to do. Once finished, we all knew that we still wanted to tell this story in game form, but we wanted to do so in the same vein as an animated short.

At the time,...
 

Guide: How to Create Your Own PS3 Themes for PlayStation 3

50°
215w ago - SCEE Online Designer Wael Naguib has shared a guide today on how to create your own PS3 Themes for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: I am one of the Online Designers here at PlayStation Europe and I am here to talk to you about how to create your very own PS3 custom themes. Here is the PS3 Custom Theme Tool download.

I have created several custom themes available on PlayStation Store - you may be familiar with themes such as Manga, Graffiti and Rag-doll Kung-fu. The Manga and Graffiti themes were created on a PC and are based on my creative interests in urban street art, Japanese anime and Manga comics.

Coming up with theme ideas is really fun and can be challenging; I've discovered it's always good to start your ideas by thinking of a good background image before you begin work on the icons. A character, scene or texture is a good starting point to begin with and that will help you ensure your icons will fit with the chosen background.

If you like to keep things simple you can use the icons provided with the theme kit and edit them however you like e.g. change the colour of the icons or maybe add some shadow behind.
 

Video: Young Thor Heads to PSP Minis, Official Trailer Arrives

50°
218w ago - Today Executive Producer Martin Brouard of Frima Studio has announced that Young Thor is heading to PSP Minis alongside a new official trailer video for the title.

To quote: Today we're showing off the final trailer for Young Thor, which will be launching next week for minis on PSP and PS3.

Our team has had a ton of fun creating titles for minis like Zombie Tycoon and the recent Widgets Odyssey, but Young Thor represents a completely new milestone in our efforts.

Built entirely for minis from the ground up to look great when played on either system, we wanted to deliver a truly epic action title that pushes the boundaries for what a minis title can become, and it's anything but tiny. Check out the official launch trailer below!





A fresh take on iconic Norse Mythology, the game has been inspired by some of the best action-platformers and beat-em up brawlers around.

You'll need to pummel your way through Midgard, the world of men, and Asgard, the world of the gods, with over a dozen different attacks and special powers if you should ever hope to save the world tree Yggdrasil.

While I don't want to spoil anything, we also have a mountain of 50 different in-game achievables to unlock throughout...

227w ago - Today Founder & CEO Efe Cakarel has unveiled MUBI for Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system, which allows users to essentially turn their PS3 console into an online cinema!

To quote: We are [Register or Login to view links]. Do you know who Kubrick is? What about Antonioni? David Lynch? Ring any bells?

Well, we are MUBI and we are basically transforming your PS3 console into your own online cinema. (You can still play games and all that, don't worry!)

We couldn't resist the idea of everyone having their own exquisite film library–And that's it in a nutshell.

But lets get this straight, we are not just an online cinema and we are not just some tech and film geeks in California–well, some of us are, yes–but we are 300,000 friends talking, discovering, and sharing films with one another every day.

In fact, every 2 minutes there's someone joining us. Yes. 2 minutes. Sorry to get a bit geeky (we warned you!), but that's 700 people joining each day. Not bad... but joining what?

The truth is, we can't even start explaining. But let's try this: At the moment, some of us are at the Cannes Film Festival announcing a major collaboration with SCEE for PS3. So, soon, you will find a new application on your console, which will let you...
