5d ago - Spry Fox CEO David Edery announced today that Road Not Taken is playable at PAX East this year.

Below are the details, to quote: (This post is about Road Not Taken, Spry Fox's upcoming roguelike for the PS4 & PS Vita. If this is your first time hearing about RNT, check out our trailers here!)

PAX East is nearly upon us! We will be there, and for the first time ever, be making a playable demo of Road Not Taken publicly available for all to enjoy!

This may have triggered a wee bit of panic in our studio.

Suddenly, all the little bugs we've been ignoring demand attention. That crash that occasionally happens during the first mission? Must-fix! Slow loading times? Speed those suckers up!

Aside from fixing a boatload of bugs, we've also been spending a lot of time tweaking the first mission of the game, since that's what most people will experience at PAX.

Initially, we didn't worry about it much. After all, we have a tutorial that we've revised at least a dozen times. The first mission just has to be "relatively easy" and all will be well, right? Nope.

While the core mechanic of Road Not Taken is relatively simple, there are dozens of unusual objects and creatures you encounter in...

1w ago - Sony Associate Brand Manager JT Pierce posted up a video today detailing a stadium comparison in MLB 14 The Show on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Happy Monday! We're excited to share this first extended look at MLB 14 The Show on PS4.

In this dev diary, Ramone Russell, Community Manager and Game Designer, shows off some of the improvements and graphical upgrades the team at San Diego Studio has made to the environments of some of the most storied and iconic stadiums in all of baseball.

Each of the 30 Major League stadiums and ballparks have their own personality and vibe - no two are alike. With the power of the PS4, the team has been able to recreate these unique cathedrals like never before.

A new lighting engine, a nearly 10x increase in polygon count and over 1,000 unique character crowd models bring these stadiums to life.





Find out why Baseball is Better with MLB 14 The Show when it launches on the PS4 May 6th.

2w ago - Spry Fox CEO David Edery shared details today on Road Not Taken for PS4 / PS Vita dubbed Living a Full, 15-Year Life below.

Lately, we've been doing a ton of playtesting of Road Not Taken, particularly with fellow game developers. (If you're ever looking for brutally honest feedback, other game developers are a good place to start.)

In general, the feedback has been pretty positive: people love the game's basic mechanics, art and audio. But one big issue repeatedly crept up in many of our playtests: people weren't sensing the depth of the game and weren't feeling a strong sense of progression. This post is all about how we've been fixing that.

I like to think of Road Not Taken as an iceberg floating in the ocean: a tiny percentage of the total game is visible above the surface when you first start playing, while the vast majority of the game lies unseen, waiting to be discovered.

A large part of that depth comes from all the unusual creatures and objects you can encounter as you explore the enchanted forests of the game. Another large...
