Video: ABZU, Giant Squid's First Project is Coming to PlayStation 4

50°
27w ago - Giant Squid Creative Director Matt Nava announced today that ABZU, their first project, is coming to PlayStation 4.

To quote: We are very excited to give you an early glimpse of ABZU, [Register or Login to view links]'s first project, coming to PS4. ABZU will take players on an epic adventure into the depths of the ocean, where they will encounter majestic creatures and discover long lost secrets.

The game draws inspiration from a deep, innate story that we all carry in our collective subconscious, a universal origin myth that resonates across cultures. As such, the name ABZU references a concept from the oldest Mesopotamian mythology: it is the combination of two ancient words Ab, meaning ocean, and Zu, meaning to know. Essentially, ABZU is the ocean of wisdom.





ABZU is being made by Giant Squid, a newly formed game studio intent on making creative and artistic interactive experiences. I started Giant Squid after working as the art director at thatgamecompany on two very fun projects, Flower and Journey.

I learned a lot about the game development process as well as design ethics from the great people on that team. On Journey, I was honored with the responsibility of designing...
 

Video: Announcing The Assembly for PS4 and Project Morpheus

27w ago - Today nDreams CEO Patrick O'Luanaigh announced that The Assembly for PS4 and Project Morpheus is coming to PlayStation 4 with a video trailer below.

To quote: Hi! We're announcing our first major VR game today for PS4 with full support for the fantastic Project Morpheus VR headset.

You probably haven't heard of our studio (nDreams) before unless you use PlayStation Home, but we're a fast-growing team of around 28 based in Farnborough in the UK, and we've been developing and publishing for around seven years. The Assembly is a mysterious VR adventure game that we have designed for VR from day one.

We were fortunate enough to start using VR headsets in the middle of 2013. Since then we've been experimenting, prototyping and trying all sorts of unusual ideas out. The Assembly includes lots of the gameplay mechanics that we found worked well in VR.





For example, you get to control two different characters at various points, and in VR, you really notice details like their different heights, sounds and voices. Rather than playing as a silent character, we found that playing the role of characters in the story works really well, and helps make The Assembly feel quite different to most other VR projects.

Slightly Mad Studios Offers a First Look at Project CARS on PS4

33w ago - Today Creative Director Andy Tudor at Slightly Mad Studios offers a first look at their project CARS on PS4 with details below.

To quote: If you haven't heard about it already, Project CARS is a bit different. Different in the philosophy of freedom that runs throughout the entire game, and different in how it's being created - by YOU, the gamers!

Project CARS was conceived back in October 2011 (Wow, time flies!) as a natural continuation of our work on two of racing's biggest franchises - Need For Speed and Test Drive - and as a return to our roots when we created GTR and GT Legends.

Back when we were conceiving the idea, we knew we wanted to create a racing game that covered a wide range of different car types and motorsports, and gave you the freedom to play and experiment with them however you wanted.

We wanted the core driving experience to be the most authentic on the planet, and we wanted to provide you with all the features you need to recreate a race weekend as it happens in real life - complete with a dynamic time of day and a weather system that not only looks beautiful but challenges your skills and provides strategic opportunities.

And we wanted to connect players together with a variety of online and community features - time trials, events,...

39w ago - Sega of America Associate Brand Manager Aaron Webber announced today that Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd is coming to PS3 and PS Vita in North America.

To quote: Following a fantastic reception to the PS3 and PS Vita release of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F in North America and Europe, SEGA is proud to announce that we will be bringing Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd to the West later this year!

That's right. You're not dreaming. We believed in all of you and we asked for your support - and you gave it to us without reservation. It was your supportive comments, your encouraging words at every place we showed the game, and your drive that made all the difference.





Some of you bought the game twice - others three or even four times. But whether you picked it up once or four times, all of you helped make Miku a success, and still do. Thank you so much for that.

Now, it's our turn to believe in you once more.

This fall, we will be releasing Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd for both PS3 and PS Vita. Project Diva F 2nd features similar but improved gameplay over the first game, with a whopping 40 songs - a collection of the best new songs, and some of the most loved classic songs, previously...
