118w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has posted up a video today confirming that the World's Most Challenging Game is coming to PlayStation Network.
To quote: I am here to tell you about The Impossible Game, a new minis title that we are bringing to PlayStation Store.
The Impossible Game is a pure indie game. Developed by a small team, it quickly found its audience and successfully moved from one platform to another. Destructoid called it "Insanely addictive".
We are now bringing The Impossible Game to the PlayStation Store as a minis, so the game can be enjoyed by PSP players, as well as the PS3 players.
So, what makes The Impossible Game so special? It is known for two things - its addictiveness and threatening the sanity of anyone who comes near it. The Impossible Game is a rhythm-based platformer.
You control an orange square and you have to jump your way through a level full of obstacles, like spikes and gaps. The game's soundtrack helps you keep the rhythm. No complicated controls, no graphical gimmicks - just one button, your skill and the music is all you need.
Why is it "impossible"? It is unforgiving. Make a single mistake and you are back to the beginning...

118w ago - This weekend Spanish PlayStation 3 developer blipi has shared some videos demonstrating a PS3 open on-screen keyboard based on Tiny3D and libfont from Hermes that other developers can incorporate into their homebrew releases.
To quote, roughly translated: Well, I thought that maybe someone of interest. It is designed for programmers and a framework in C++.
This is an OSK (On-Screen Keyboard) for the development of homebrews. Since I did not get to show the PS3 by psl1ght OSK decided to make one. Thinking about thinking I decided that maybe someone else saw this, so I decided to share my work: https://bitbucket.org/blipi/oosk-openosk
It is released under GNU GPL, under which you can freely use the code, but any modification is above code should be released or before uploading it to the repository or enviandomela to me for the climb.
Is still in development, so has a lot of functionality to be added yet.
119w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared some video footage today for fans of when Resistance 3 for PS3 met Sony spokesman Kevin Butler.
To quote: As we lead up to Resistance 3's launch this Tuesday, we wanted to start your holiday weekend right with the two television commercials you will be seeing for Resistance 3 over the next few weeks.
These commercials will be airing during NFL games and my personal favorite, college football, as well as series premieres of some of the biggest shows on TV.
Why two commercials, you ask? Well, we have two great approaches for Resistance 3. One involves the story of Joseph Capelli's journey. In some ways this ties us back to the very first live-action prologue trailer that showed us the first glimpse of Resistance 3's grim new world.
Here you get a glimpse of the emotions and story that make up our game. We really feel like this ad wonderfully captures and encapsulates Resistance 3. Take a look:
Hope you liked that commercial and it got you pumped for the game's launch. That said, what's a huge PS3 exclusive without a Kevin Butler commercial? Maybe it's best if you just watch.
