7w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke announced today that The Swapper is coming to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita in May 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: Our final PlayStation game announcement of the month is something I've wanted to talk about for a really long time. I'm now very happy to be able to tell you about our plans to bring the critically acclaimed puzzle-platformer, The Swapper, to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita this year.

The Swapper was released in 2013 on PC, and has had some amazing press coverage. It won numerous awards in the indie gaming scene for its story, graphics and puzzle design.

We're very lucky to be working with original developer Olli Harjola to bring the game to PlayStation formats, and the game is already looking beautiful on our PlayStation systems here at Curve towers, so we think you're in for a real treat.

The Swapper is set on Theseus, a damaged space station and research facility. It's a claustrophobic, dark, and atmospheric environment, but it's also very unique in style - there's no blocky pixel art and digital textures in this game, but instead handcrafted art and clay models designed by the original developers.

These real world props make up the many different environments in the game and provide The Swapper with an art...

11w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke announced today that their Mega Bundle is now available with details below.

To quote: Hey everyone! Rob here from Curve Studios. We're probably one of the most active indie studios on PlayStation right now - we released five indie titles for PS3 and four titles for Vita in 2013, and we've got at least four more coming this year that we'll be announcing very soon.

We've been thinking about making a bundle of our games for a while, and we're happy to announce that you'll be able to pick up four of our best titles from 2013 in a single, happy package right now.

These games would cost over $45 if you purchased them individually, but we're launching the bundle for the first two weeks at only $14.99, with a further discount for PlayStation Plus members, which means Plus subscribers only pay $13.49 for the following games:

• Lone Survivor (Survival Horror)
• Thomas Was Alone (Puzzle Platformer)
• Proteus (Exploration)
• Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark (Action Platformer)

That's four titles for the regular price of one - way better than buy one, get one free - and did we mention all of these games are cross buy enabled? No, we did not! But they are, so you can swap between the PS3 and PS Vita versions...

PlayStation Plus: BioShock Infinite Joins Instant Game Collection

50°
13w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced today that PlayStation Plus: BioShock Infinite joins the Instant Game Collection.

To quote: It's almost time for BioShock Infinite to join the Instant Game Collection! The first BioShock allowed you to explore the downfall of the underwater society Rapture, but BioShock Infinite takes you to the skies - specificially the utopia of Colombia.

As Booker DeWitt, a hired gun, you've been contracted to find Elizabeth, a mysterious girl locked up in a massive tower with a giant mechanical bird as a bodyguard. Just like BioShock had plasmids to amp up its first-person shooter combat, BioShock Infinite has vigors.

Ranging from defensive with Return to Sender, which absorbs all damage and sends it hurling back at your enemy to the offensive with Charge, where Booker will slam into a specified opponent, you can mix up your play style throughout the game's campaign.

There's also a ton of titles on sale for both PS3 and PS Vita as part of our 14 for '14 promotion including Crysis 3, Far Cry: Blood Dragon and The Wolf Among Us Season Pass, so check out all the deals below.

You can download BioShock Infinite after PlayStation Store updates tomorrow.

BioShock Infinite (PS3)
Free for PS Plus members
