Dollar Dash: A Four-Player Free-for-All Coming to PS3 This Winter

50°
93w ago - Candygun Art Director Andreas Hackel has announced today that a four-player free-for-all is coming to PS3 this Winter.

Below is the scoop, to quote: Late last year, we were gathering ideas and prototypes in preparation of creating our next game. There was one idea we really liked: A fast-paced multiplayer sneaking game about a group of safe-breakers that sneak past cameras, laser barriers, and guards to pull off the ultimate heist.

In our earliest prototype, the goal of the four players was to pick locks and break walls in order to reach the vault and grab all the money inside before one of the other players could.

There was one element in this early prototype that was really fun: You could set up bear traps that would snare other players, slowing them down and causing the guards to catch them. Around the same time, we were also playing a lot of Bomberman in the office. And its brand of pick-up-and-play fun and multiplayer battles was something we wanted in our game, too.

So we decided to re-think the game from scratch, stripping out complicated concepts like guards and surveillance cameras and focusing on one basic idea: thieves stealing money and attacking other players. Enter Dollar Dash!

We knew we wanted an animated look for Dollar Dash, with inspirations...

Today, we are releasing four additional animal characters (Crocodile, Giraffe, Kangaroo, Panda) and giving away more costumes, so please be sure to check out PlayStation Store this afternoon.

In other news, we've received many questions about TOKYO JUNGLE's premise and gameplay, so we asked Game Director Yohei Kataoka from [Register or Login to view links] and Producer Masaaki Yamagiwa from Japan Studio to elaborate on the game's concept and inception.

Dais Kawaguchi, Assistant Producer: Can you please explain how you came up with the idea for TOKYO JUNGLE?

Yohei Kataoka, Game Director: The business philosophy for "Crispy's Corporation," the studio I established, is to "develop a new product that nobody has ever seen before."

However, just because it's new doesn't mean it will be well received. When I was struggling to figure out how to create something that's innovative and compelling, I came across an article of famous singer-songwriters...
