Starhawk - In the far reaches of space, factions of humanity battle over a rare and dangerous resource known as Rift Energy. Colonies of humans called Rifters have been exploring the "Frontier" of planets, but find their way of life threatened by the Outcast, a ruthless species of humans who have mutated into psychotic monsters due to exposure to this very same Rift Energy.

Caught in the middle is Emmett Graves, a hired gunslinger ostracized from society because...
 

Video: Meet Derrick The Deathfin, Swimming to PSN This Summer

125w ago - Different Tuna's Head of Fresh Produce Gordon Midwood has shared a video today introducing Derrick The Deathfin, who will be swimming on PSN this Summer!

To quote: Derrick the Deathfin is the world's very first underwater papercraft game.

The action - of which there is plenty - takes place in an irreverent aquatic world full of paper, goofy fish, paper, arcade action, paper, wanton destruction, and paper.*

After Derrick's parents are brutally turned into soup he sets forth on a worldwide rampage of destruction in order to make himself feel a bit better.

On his travels he eats all manner of dopey delights for dinner, duels with paper enemies and decimates man-made cardboard monstrosities. Derrick also has a distinct fondness for picking up diamonds and jumping through burning tyres in the sky. Just like a real shark!

Derrick journeys through 32 beautiful, vibrant levels set across 11 environments and four continents. He is in a constant battle against his metabolism, needing to constantly eat to stay alive. He must move, groove, jump, race and puzzle his way through increasingly crazy challenges to attain paper-shark certified glory.

Video: Rainbow Moon for PSN: Watch the New PS3 Trailer Now

200°
126w ago - SideQuest Studios CEO Marcus Pukropski has posted up a new video trailer today of PlayStation Network title Rainbow Moon for PS3 fans below!

To quote: Last November, I had the opportunity to introduce you to Rainbow Moon, our upcoming strategy RPG for PS3.

Since then, we have received amazing feedback from all of you. In the lead up to the release, it gives me great pleasure to tell you more about the game's battle system.

You also have the chance to be one of the first to watch the Rainbow Moon trailer.

Although much of Rainbow Moon's appeal is in its exploration and character development, the battles are what matter most.

Akin to our Soldner-X game series, we have taken an innovative approach by combining classical elements with new ideas. An example is the triggering of battle encounters. Random encounters? Yes or no? Well, how about both?!





In Rainbow Moon you will find foes roaming the surface of the planet and have a chance to battle in additional random encounters. The latter, however, are 100% optional and can be disregarded if you so decide.

All battles take place on grid-sized maps and are completely turn based. That's right, just like the good...

Designing Charismatic Characters for Alien Spidy, Hits PSN In June

50°
126w ago - Today Product Manager Andrew McKerrow at Kalypso has outlined how charismatic characters in Alien Spidy were designed, along with confirming that the PS3 title will be coming to PSN in June.

To quote: One of the key factors for a game to be successful revolves around the charisma and empathy of the lead character, a task that seems simple, but can be an endeavour of epic proportions.

The first step in the concept process was to try and think of a main character who would be full of charisma and have natural abilities, enabling them to move around the world and adapt to the kind of mechanics we wanted to build into the game.

So, after a lot of brainstorming, coffee, comic reading, watching cartoons and lots of other inspirational tools, we thought that it would be interesting to play around with a small spider with big eyes that would be able to bring some "human" emotional connection to the game.

We also decided to stick six legs on instead of the standard eight legs to make the character a little more friendly looking and little less creepy, as there are a lot of people with arachnophobia! See, we do care!

Once we decided on a spider, all the mechanics would have to be created around web spinning abilities, which in turn adapted very well to the controls...
