119w ago - Dyad Creator Shawn McGrath has shared some video footage spotlighting the music and gameplay fusion in Dyad for PlayStation Network today.
To quote: Shawn here again, and I brought along Dyad's composer, David Kanaga.
We're going to talk a bit about Dyad's interactive music system, how it works and what makes it unique. We're also treating you to a free three-song EP consisting of linear mixes of Dyad's interactive music and some new screenshots!
Below is a new gameplay video showcasing one of the later levels in Dyad. Don't worry if it looks too complex! It'll make perfect sense once you've completed the earlier levels.
When you hear the term "interactive music" you might think of "rhythm games" such as Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Frequency, or others of that nature. Dyad's music system is very different from those games. There's no beat matching or imposed rhythm in the game.
The music doesn't dictate play, nor does it judge you. Dyad's music is reactive, meaning it's mixed dynamically on the fly, based on the current game state and how you're interacting with it. Each time you play a level, the music is different – playing Dyad can...

To quote: Two years ago we introduced you to our resident Vice President of just about everything, Kevin Butler, in the inaugural "Dear PlayStation" ad which was timed with the introduction of our "It Only Does Everything" campaign.
Since then, the campaign has helped make the PS3 a household name in 50 million homes worldwide. Today, I'm excited to introduce you to a new brand campaign "Long Live Play" - designed to celebrate gamers from all walks of life and recognize you for making us who we are today.
PlayStation has always been about the gamer and the PS3 is the ultimate portal to a land of infinite experiences and accomplishments.

119w ago - DeathSpank Designer Darren Evenson has announced that The Baconing officially hits PlayStation Network today alongside a video trailer.
To quote: I'm wicked excited to share some details about our new game, The Baconing, DeathSpank's greatest and most delicious adventure EVER! The game will be available to download today from PlayStation Network.
The Baconing is part of the PSN PLAY promotion so if you purchase the game before September 19th you will also receive co-op character DLC, Roesha - One Bad Mutha. Also, if you are PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can still get 20% off the full game price!
When we started developing The Baconing we didn't want gamers to feel like they HAD to play through the previous DeathSpank games before taking on The Baconing.
We decided to make this game accessible for anyone to jump straight into, ensuring that new players and returning fans alike can both equally enjoy this game. Those familiar with DeathSpank will certainly experience just as much familiar fun plus a bucket-load of improvements too.
This is, by far, the funniest DeathSpank to date. We had an absolute blast making it, and it was an unwritten rule that we needed to laugh...
