73w ago - Neko Entertainment QA Manager Sebastian Chipot has announced today that Puddle will be splashing on to PlayStation Vita next week with details below.
To quote: Hello, I'm Sebastien from Neko Entertainment. We came out with a game earlier this year called Puddle, and we're bringing it to PS Vita next week!
Puddle began as a project by six students of the video game school ENJMIN. It won a Student Showcase prize at the Independent Gaming Festival at GDC 2010, and was later picked up by Neko Entertainment. There, those same six students were able to turn it into a full-fledged game.
After we released the game on PS3, we worked hard to get a better handle on the game's mechanics, so we'd be able to deliver a new version of Puddle on PS Vita. We paid particular attention to feedback from PS3 players when working on the PS Vita version – which will have many exclusive features!
We made the game a bit easier (there's an option to "whine and skip" a level if it's proving too difficult), there are now tips on every loading screen, and menus have been changed to take advantage of the touch screen.
You can change the control setup (tilt the console, use the left stick, use L and R buttons, or even use the rear touch pad). We wanted to make sure you have...

73w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with details on the new PS3 and PSN releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:
On PSN this week, experience a transcendental sensory overload in Dyad. Race through a reactive audio-visual tube creating a harmonious synthesis of colour and sound as you hook, graze, and lance enemies to master Dyad's 27 unique levels.
Embark on a mind-altering interactive journey through Dyad's Game Mode in order to prepare yourself for Trophy Mode's tactical freakout variations wherein a Platinum Trophy awaits only the most skillful.
Or choose to sit back and chill with Dyad's hallucinogenic Remix Mode on this week's The Drop.
DYAD - Dyad is an abstract racing/shooter/puzzle hybrid where players move forward by manipulating other vessels on the track. Dyad also explores the mind state of the player – the game is designed to create a strong sense of flow, upon which it offers different contemplative approaches.
The topics of contemplation, called Mantras, create a thought-based metagame on top of the audio-visual gameplay. An independently-developed project created by Shawn McGrath, Dyad is made for play on PlayStation 3 consoles.
