Tiny Brains on PS4 11/26: A Look at DualShock 4 on PlayStation 4

50°
37w ago - Co-founder of Spearhead Games Malik Boukhira announced today that Tiny Brains hits PS4 on 11/26 alongside a look at the DualShock 4 controller on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: My friend Simon Darveau and I quit our jobs at AAA gaming studios in favor of a smaller, more experimental and creative independent game development. We wanted to create a new kind of game experience, and what better way to do so than to ride the wave of the new generation of consoles?

So with the help of PlayStation's push for indies, we found our experiment in cooperation, Tiny Brains, coming to life on the shockingly high-res screens of the brand-new PS4 on November 26th!

For some background, Tiny Brains is an upcoming action puzzle game that follows the adventures of four tiny (but super-powered!) lab animals that have been experimented on by a mad scientist. Each "tiny brain" has a unique physics-based ability and players must work together to combine their powers and escape the trick-ridden science experiment.

We made this game to truly be about co-op - unlike some co-op games where the stronger players can complete the objectives while their less-experienced friends hang back and bumble about, in Tiny Brains, all the animals' powers must work in tandem in order to progress. You and your fellow...
 

Video: Rainbow Moon is Coming to PlayStation Vita December 3rd

38w ago - SideQuest Studios CEO Marcus Pukropski announced today alongside a video that Rainbow Moon is coming to PlayStation Vita on December 3rd.

Below are the details, to quote: After we released Rainbow Moon on PS3 last year, one of the most common questions we received was "Are you going to make a Vita version?"

Obviously we weren't the only ones that believed Rainbow Moon would make a great experience for handheld platforms, and with demand being so high, we set about working on a Vita port almost immediately.

For those of you not already familiar with Rainbow Moon, we've put together a new trailer. You can also find a few of our older blog posts explaining the game in more detail [Register or Login to view links].

Something that was really important to us from the beginning was using our own engine to ensure a solid 60 FPS, and a robust game with little to no loading times. After months of hard work, we're happy to announce that Rainbow Moon Vita is coming to PlayStation Store on December 3rd!





As a result of all the amazing feedback from Rainbow Moon fans around the world, more than 30 new features, improvements, and bug fixes found their way into Rainbow...
 

Video: Strider Hands-on: Remember Your Ninja Training on PS3 / PS4

50°
41w ago - Capcom Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared a fresh video today reminding fans to remember their ninja training for Strider coming to both PS3 and PS4 platforms.

To quote: Amidst a flurry of snow and the lazy trundle of passing airships, Strider Hiryu blazes across the screen, cutting down any and all that stand in his way. This classic ninja hero returns in Strider, a rebirth of the side-scrolling classic made famous in late '80s arcades.

The new Strider, which launches in early 2014 for PS3 and PS4, enhances the fast-paced spectacle of the original with HD visuals, while preserving the frantic combat and momentum that long-time fans will fondly remember.

Set in a dark and oppressed future, the world suffers under the tyranny of Grand Master Meio, the complete ruler of the planet. Players control Strider Hiryu, along with his indestructible Cypher weapon, in order to terminate Meio and restore balance to Earth's governments.

As the youngest Special-A Class recruit in the Strider program, Hiryu catapults into this mission, empowering players with a variety of eye-searing attacks.

Strider is a side-scrolling action platformer, set on one sprawling map. Similar to other RPG-influenced side scrollers, like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Hiryu...
 

Beyond: Two Souls on PlayStation 3: It's Not Another Heavy Rain

400°
42w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared a fresh video today announcing that Beyond: Two Souls on PlayStation 3 is not another Heavy Rain.

To quote: At first glance, Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain seem to have more in common than not. Both games focus on intricate narratives and deep character development, highlighted by cutting-edge performance capture and dazzling digital sets.

But on closer examination, Beyond: Two Souls, which launches exclusively for PS3 on October 8th, is a wholly unique creation with no obvious analogue.

For one, its sweeping story focuses on one character instead of four. Beyond: Two Souls spans an entire lifetime as it follows the trials of protagonist Jodie Holmes (Ellen Page) and her constant companion, Aiden - an invisible entity with incredible powers. For another, it features a radically different, more direct play style compared to Heavy Rain.

In our new interview, [Register or Login to view links] co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere discusses the differences between the team's two latest projects, and the daunting scope of the story. Listen in for his insight on the game design process, and how Quantic Dream infused player-driven choices into a story-driven experience.



 

Video: Rain Arrives on PS3 Today, PlayStation 3 Launch Trailer Out

50°
42w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi announced that Rain arrives on PS3 today alongside a PlayStation 3 launch trailer below.

To quote: Rain will be available for purchase today on PS3 for $14.99! Also, starting today, the full soundtrack for rain will also be available for $9.99, featuring the enchanting music created by composer Yugo Kanno and the gifted singer Connie Talbot.

To celebrate the launch of rain, we played through the game LIVE here on PlayStation.Blog and on [Register or Login to view links] earlier today. We hope you enjoyed the stream, and got a better feel for rain!

It's been an amazing journey to bring the story of rain to life. Director Yuuki Ikeda initially had the idea to write a story about a boy who was invisible and could only be seen in the rain.

Inspired by an experience he had as a child where he found himself lost, the story of rain has flourished into an emotionally dynamic adventure, brought to life by the talented team at PlayStation C.A.M.P.





Thank you for supporting rain, and we hope you enjoy playing!
