Video: Race the Sun Coming to PS3, PS4, PS Vita This Summer

50°
19w ago - Flippfly Co-founder Forest San Filippo announced that Race the Sun is coming to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita this Summer alongside a video of it in action below.

To quote: There's just something about going fast. The desire for speed seems to be ingrained in our very nature. Race the Sun is our attempt to distill that desire into its basic form - to strip away all pretense and let players experience pure, brutal speed. Building a game with this goal in mind took a lot of trial, error, and some new ideas.

The Goals

When we first played the prototype that would become Race the Sun, we felt like we had something special. Every time one of us would crash, we'd say "Just one more run. I know I can do better." It felt like we were playing a classic arcade game designed to suck you in.

After quite a bit of discussion and thought, we decided on some specific goals for Race the Sun. It had to be fast, fun, and challenging. We knew that some of the fastest games out there were encumbered by complex rules and controls - and we really wanted our game to be fun right from the start. The mantra "easy to learn, hard to master" was adopted in lieu of design documents, and we got to work.

Video: CounterSpy PS4 is Coming to PlayStation 4 This Summer

19w ago - Dynamighty Lead Designer David Nottingham posted up a video trailer today announcing that CounterSpy PS4 is coming to PlayStation 4 this Summer!

Below are the details, to quote: Hello friends. Things have been quiet on the home front here at Dynamighty in the last few months. The truth is we've been quietly working hard to make CounterSpy as awesome as it can be. In the world of espionage, this is known as being Deep Undercover.

Well, all our diabolical plans are finally falling into place, and we have some exciting news to share. When we partnered with PlayStation, PS4 was but a fantastical dream of uber console heaven somewhere off in the future. We originally announced that CounterSpy was coming to PS3 and PS Vita.

Since the PS4 launch, we've had a steady stream of requests from people as to when or if we would be releasing on PlayStation's new hardware. We're thrilled to declassify this information and officially confirm that, yes, CounterSpy WILL be launching on PS4 this Summer.

We've been eagerly working with PS4 now. I think the extra power of the system is going to open up some really nice possibilities for us. At the same time, we remain committed to PS3 and PS Vita (the game is looking great on both those platforms).



 

PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate Coming to PS4, PS Vita This Summer

20w ago - Double Eleven Production Team Richard Snowdon announced that PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is coming to PS4 and PS Vita this Summer with details below.

To quote: All of us here at Double Eleven are excited to announce that PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is coming to PS4 and PS Vita this Summer, and we can finally start to talk about it!

PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is a twin-stick shooter that's as much about blasting things as it is about exploration, puzzle solving, and collecting things. Within Shooter Ultimate, players interact with environments that run an advanced fluid dynamics simulation. These interactions are needed to solve puzzles, overcome enemies, and progress through levels.

For those who remember the original PixelJunk Shooter games, Ultimate combines the campaigns of Shooter 1 and 2 into a single experience. It certainly doesn't stop there, as we've done a ton of work on top of that to make this the third game in the series!

So here's our list of nine things that hopefully make our PixelJunk Shooter worthy of the title "ultimate."

1. Full Visual Upgrade on PS4

When we were trying to decide what a PS4 version of Shooter should look like, we knew that it needed to remain true to that classic, razorsharp, vector-based aesthetic - which...
