Fluffy Logic Developer Diary Details Eat Them! Controls on PSN

50°
211w ago - Fluffy Logic Designer James Parker has detailed the controls for Eat Them! controls on PSN today.

To quote: I'm working on Eat Them!, which Ana has been telling you about recently, and I'm here to say a few more extra in-depthy words about how making a game like Eat Them! actually happens on a day to day basis. Today - CONTROLS!

A game can have the greatest technology in the world, the most incredible art assets, and USPs that would have marketing people salivating into their espressos, but if the controls feel wrong - if the player isn't properly connected with the game - then everything else will be wasted.

One of the first things you do when designing any game is download a picture of the DUALSHOCK 3, cribbed from Google images, fire up your favorite drawing package, and put little lines all over it connecting buttons to boxes that describe their functions.

At this stage, as an experienced designer, you make an educated guess at what's going to work for your game. The reality is, until you get the game on the Test Kit, the controller in your hands and you actually try the thing, you may as well have been drawing a moustache on the Mona Lisa.

Because customisation is a big factor in Eat Them!, each monster's capabilities are going to be slightly...
 

FluffyLogic's Eat Them! PlayStation 3 Developer Diary: Part Two

50°
213w ago - FluffyLogic Producer Ana Kronschnabl has shared part two today in their ongoing Eat Them! PlayStation 3 developer diary series.

To quote: So where are we? Well we have obviously done a fair amount of the game, since we demoed it at E3. Prior to this point we had spent a lot of time getting the basic structures of the game in place.

We use Sony's 3D engine [Register or Login to view links] as the basis - it's a great engine and it gives us the important nuts and bolts of a game system, which frees us up to focus on making special graphical effects and gameplay.

One of these is the cartoon -shader effect which we have spent a fair amount of time developing and refining. We are using it to create the game's distinctive visual style. This was a time consuming process that involved our main graphics programmer and a couple of artists working together, trying to get the art tools into the PlayStation 3 and looking good.

The basic system takes the 3D models of the landscape and the monsters and draws a black line around them, as if they are flat on the page like a comic drawing. What makes it a complex process is that it's not a flat drawing, it's a 3D world that moves constantly, so our graphics tools have to draw this look on the...

To quote: Following last week's post introducing the companions you'll be able to roam with in Fallout: New Vegas, [Register or Login to view links] sent me this video offering insight into the game's story.

I'm a total sucker for two video game distractions: looting and poker.

I don't know what this says about me, other than that I'm going to be a very sleepy young man for a few weeks after Fallout: New Vegas is released.

Video: PlayStation Move Developer Diary: The Shoot for PS3

100°
237w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Associate Producer Ray Khalastchi has shared a PlayStation Move Developer Diary video today highlighting upcoming title The Shoot for PS3.

To quote: The Shoot is a title exclusive to PlayStation Move, an arcade shooter where you are an action hero and the PlayStation Move motion controller is your gun.

Listen to the director and shoot your way through five different spoofs of classic B-Movie themes: the Wild West, undersea monsters, haunted house, mobsters and a robot invasion. Shoot through parts of the highly destructible set to see what they're really made of.

You can use the PlayStation Move to activate special powers. Shoot into the ground to generate a shockwave and destroy all your enemies in one blast, spin on the spot to slow time with Showtime, and fire in the air to activate your all-powerful rampage gun.

No more need for buttons or foot pedals – just duck behind cover and dodge projectiles, using the PlayStation Move. You can even co-star with a friend in your own action movies!





Oh, and don't forget about Challenges. We've taken our movie themes and applied them to motion games like underwater baseball and haunted house bowling, and a few more surprises...
