Video: Meet Mark Cerny: PS4 System Architect and Knack Creator

50°
78w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton posted up a video today introducing PlayStation 4 fans to Mark Cerny, a PS4 System Architect, Knack creator and one of the busiest men in gaming!

He also discussed the "Road to the PS4" live at Gamelab 2013 with a video [Register or Login to view links] for those interested.

To quote: For most mortals, designing a brand new cutting edge gaming system from the ground up would be a full time job, and then some.

However, for none-more-diligent PS4 system architect Mark Cerny, that wasn't quite enough responsibility, so he set about crafting a launch title for the new platform at the same time.

Said title, Knack, is a lovely counterpoint to the bulging biceps of Killzone: Shadow Fall and the steely realism of #DRIVECLUB.

Harking back to classic action platformers of yore, such as Spyro the Dragon, Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter and so on, it's a bold, bright and hugely enjoyable romp that injects the PS4 launch line-up with a pleasing splash of color.

The day after the physical form of PS4 was finally unveiled at E3, I sat down with the hardest working man in the business to find out more about his twin endeavors.

Video: The Witness on PlayStation 4 / PS4: Creator Conversations

250°
83w ago - Thekla Incorporated President Jonathan Blow shared some video footage today which include conversations with the creators of upcoming title The Witness on the PlayStation 4 / PS4 video game console.

To quote: It's been a few months since our last post, so I think it's a nice time to let people know how the game is coming along.

If you haven't heard about The Witness, it is a game about exploration and puzzle-solving in an open world. Here's our trailer:





The open-world aspect of the design is important; it means you have freedom in terms of where you go and what puzzles you choose to approach right now. At any time you can just stop what you're doing, turn around and go somewhere else, and the game world has plenty of new things to show you.





It's interesting to try and design a puzzle game this way. Puzzle games are usually linear, because the designers want to make sure you have solved a puzzle before going on to a more difficult one.

But in The Witness we have a broader idea about what makes puzzles interesting, and this lets us be versatile in designing the flow of gameplay. We build systems of puzzles...

Karateka on PSN Today, From Prince of Persia Creator Jordan Mechner

50°
105w ago - Assistant Producer Heather D'Evelyn has announced that Karateka is pummeling onto PSN today, and is from Prince of Persia Creator Jordan Mechner.

Below are the details, to quote: I'm proud to announce the PlayStation Network release of Jordan Mechner's classic martial arts sidescroller, Karateka! Thirty years later, the 8-bit karate classic returns with all-new graphics and a unique rhythm-based gameplay.

As a college freshman in 1982, Jordan Mechner started work on the original Karateka with nothing more than an Apple II computer and a burning desire to become a published game author. Now, 30 years later, Mechner is back for more karate action, teaming up with Liquid Entertainment for a modern remake of Karateka with beautiful animation and innovative gameplay.

What's changed in the last 30 years of gaming? In the original game, you beat up a series of thugs to rescue the princess Mariko from the evil warlord Akuma. If you're defeated, that's it-game over. Alas, modern gamers aren't used to the cruel realism of the one-life scenario, so we introduce three different suitors, all attempting to rescue the princess.

If you die as the first one (the "True Love"), you continue as the second, then the third, allowing you to have more than one chance while maintaining...
