Playrise Digital: Table Top Racing Coming to PS Vita on August 5th

6d ago - Playrise Digital CEO Nick Burcombe announced today that Table Top Racing is coming to PS Vita on August 5th, 2014.

To quote: Hi, I'm Nick Burcombe, head of Liverpool-based indie development studio [Register or Login to view links]. We've joined forces with publisher [Register or Login to view links] to bring our award-winning game Table Top Racing to PS Vita on August 5th.

I was part of the original team that created WipeOut back in the mid '90s for PlayStation, and I have always loved combat racers and driving games above all other genres - games like Micro Machines and Mario Kart.

So when we were looking at building a new racer, it felt natural to reference those classics when crafting Table Top Racing. We set out to capture some of that essence of what made them so much fun, and I think we've done a pretty good job on that front!

Table Top Racing features a host of crazy tracks complete with shortcuts, over-sized obstacles, jumps, and all manner of other hazards. As the game picks up speed, you need to understand the best racing lines and drift momentum you can get with some of the later cars - it's pretty frantic.

We've included one shot weapon power-ups which give players a temporary advantage, be it a speed boost, missile...

2w ago - Digital Dreams Level Designer Roy van de Mortel confirmed today alongside a PlayStation Vita video trailer that Metrico on PS Vita arrives on August 5, 2014.

To quote: Hi fellow PlayStation enthusiasts! We're finally ramping up to the release of our first big title, the infographics action game [Register or Login to view links]. We got loads of questions during development, which we are really excited to finally answer in this blog post!

One of the most frequently asked question is; when is Metrico coming out? We're proud to announce that Metrico will be available on PlayStation Network August 5th in the US, exclusively on PS Vita!

Another frequent question was: "Who did the awesome music?" You're in the right place to find out as well! But the most frequent question was the request for Metrico gameplay footage. We want to start this post by giving you exactly that:

The main reason we took such a long time to show gameplay footage is because we always felt the main mechanics of Metrico are quite tricky to explain through video. We never got around to solving this, even though this is probably a recurring issue for novel game concepts.
 

Escape Hatch: Major Update Comes to Starlight Inception on PS Vita

2w ago - Escape Hatch Entertainment President Garry M Gaber announced today that a major update is coming to Starlight Inception on PS Vita.

To quote: In this blog, we wanted to focus on the major update (live now) that we completed for [Register or Login to view links], one of the only first-person / third-person space combat experiences on PS Vita.

This was our first title on Vita, and as a small indie developer with limited resources both for development and testing, a lot of folks thought we weren't in the game for the long haul.

Hopefully this update dispels those notions. We're committed to this product and have been working hard since its release in late April to address issues in the game, add more features, and generally polish the product. We also have plans for future updates, both to address any issues that arise from this update, as well as to expand the game and its feature set.

You can find the full release notes [Register or Login to view links]. As you can see, the list is rather extensive; we'll just focus on a select few of these in this blog entry. We'll also be posting more videos to our [Register or Login to view links]

Enough about me, though! We know you guys have been waiting for more pinball tables in Pinball Arcade on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.
