My personal favorite new Raid is set in [Register or Login to view links], the ancestral home of Wonder Woman. Our team of talented artists did an amazing job crafting this beautiful new zone, and the design team went above and beyond in creating a cooperative combat experience that is fun, challenging and rewarding.

You and your friends will need to use all of your skill and a lot of strategy in order to conquer this Raid and take down Brainiac's Avatar of Magic. The Battle for Earth culminates with a major showdown against Braniac, and sets the stage for a new chapter in the game's ongoing narrative....

137w ago - Today Sony Assistant Producer Charles Hefele has announced that The Simpsons: Arcade Game will be hitting PSN tomorrow.

To quote: Speaking as a lifelong [Register or Login to view links] fan, I'm just as excited for this game to come out as everyone else – the wait to finally see this game make its way to home consoles seemed endless!

We worked closely with Gracie Films and Fox to time the release of the game with the 500th episode of The Simpsons so that fans of the show could experience the classic game during an important milestone for the series.

It's been a great collaborative effort with [Register or Login to view links] to find a balance between preserving the authenticity of the original arcade game and making just enough tweaks to adapt it for PS3.

The original game is already great, so we decided we would focus primarily on making it as faithful a port as possible while adding various gameplay modes and bonus content.

We also listened to fans' suggestions from our previous arcade conversions, particularly in respect including more challenging ways to play these classic arcade games when you remove the quarter-crunching element. To that end, we've included several different gameplay modes in The Simpsons Arcade, so...
 

Festival of Hearts Comes to Free Realms via PSN Tomorrow

137w ago - Today Producer Jose Araiza has announced that Festival of Hearts is coming to Free Realms via PSN tomorrow, with the details below as follows:

Nothing says love more than the Stone Abomination right? No?

Oh... well... that's probably because you have yet to hear the tale behind the Festival of Hearts in Free Realms. Sure, everyone knows that Festival of Hearts celebrates love, but not many know the tale of how the festival originated. This is a tale of love that transcends time, and has been retold from generation to generation all around the land.

Long ago, two young pixies - Rylan and Arianna - met while adventuring in the place we now call Merry Vale. Upon first glance, they were smitten with each other and planted a flower together at the spot where they first met.

The two young pixies vowed to see each other every day, meeting near their flower in Merry Vale. Every time they met, Rylan would bring a present to his sweetheart; sometimes flowers or chocolates, other times balloons or hand-printed poems. Their romance was the stuff of legend, until...

But I'd better not spoil the fun. I'll let you guys find out for yourselves starting February 7th! Log into [Register or Login to view links] and find out what happens to these two lovebirds....
 

TikGames: The Making of Stick Man Rescue, Hits PSN Tomorrow

100°
139w ago - Today Howard Lehr at TikGames has shared details on the making of Stick Man Rescue, which will be hitting fans on PSN tomorrow.

To quote: Stick Man Rescue was born of a conversation with my 12-year old son, Colin. He had just discovered the freeware Pivot Stick Figure Animator and, like any 12-year-old boy would, he was using it to make hilarious death animations.

Given that game designers are perpetual 12-year-olds at heart, I joined in. This prompted visits to various stick man death websites which provided a surprisingly long-lasting source of giggles that attracted my younger son. Soon the three of us were pondering how to make stick deaths into a video game.

Dusting off my rusty programming and non-existent art skills, I co-opted my kids to start making animated gifs of stick deaths and created a prototype game bent on seeing how many of our most ridiculous ideas could be worked into it.

So, I had a prototype as you can see, but had a long way to go to turn it into something that could be useful for a real game design.

Working at a publisher and developer like [Register or Login to view links] has its advantages. First, there are a bunch of talented people around to help hone ideas into something that works. I enlisted the help of Adrian Ludley,...
