PlayStation Mobile: Sixty Second Shooter Deluxe Lands on PSN Today

50°
98w ago - Happion Laboratories Chief Scientist Jamie Fristrom has announced that PlayStation Mobile title Sixty Second Shooter Deluxe lands on PSN today!

To quote: Many years ago I quit a pretty sweet job as creative director on Activision's Spider-Man series in the middle of development on Spider-Man 3.

Why did I do such a crazy thing? I'd love to say it was because of the screenplay, but no - a big part of the reason was that even though I had the highfalutin' title "creative director" I didn't feel like it was my game.

Somehow, not enough of my own creative input and ideas were making it into the thing, and I thought that at a small company I could start making games I could call my own again.

And I've been getting my butt kicked ever since! Every mistake you can make as an indie developer... I've probably made it twice. We did okay with Schizoid, which made it into the PAX 10, but didn't bring in enough money to make the next game, and although we managed to hold on for a while longer, doing some contract work here and there, we eventually had to call it quits.





My partner went and got a real job and I was about to as well, but then I heard that the Chrome web browser had...

50°
98w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King is here with a new video featuring Elvira in The Pinball Arcade which hits PSN tomorrow.

To quote: Happy Halloween week guys and gals - we've got a special treat for you all! In our on-going quest to re-create as many of the best pinball tables of all time, we were able to get the licenses needed from Bally and the Mistress of the Dark herself, [Register or Login to view links]!

This means Elvira and the Party Monsters will be released in Table Pack 6 tomorrow, and Scared Stiff will be released before too long in Table Pack 7.

Elvira has been super cool to work with. She invited us to part of her Macabre Museum at [Register or Login to view links] last month.

We got to show off the Party Monsters table right along with a real machine. Some of the guys here on the pinball team got to meet her, and she even came over and played our game for a while. She's actually pretty good at pinball!





This is also pretty cool - [Register or Login to view links] just gave us the nod for two of their [Register or Login to view links]

Creating Authentic Universes in Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse

250°
99w ago - Activision Lead Producer Andy Owen has outlined what it takes to create authentic universes in Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse today.

To quote: Making a licensed game is hard. Making a good licensed game is hard.

As huge [Register or Login to view links] fans, when the opportunity came to make a game based on the hilarious TV show, with [Register or Login to view links] at the helm, it was impossible to pass up.

But there was one giant hurdle we had to get over in order to make a good Family Guy game - we don't work at Fuzzy Door, Seth MacFarlane's production company, and we aren't involved in any way with the Family Guy TV show.

And it wouldn't matter how much effort we put into the graphics, or the level design, or the action. If it didn't feel like Family Guy - if it wasn't funny, or if Stewie shouted "Blast!" and it was clear we'd just hired some actor to do a mediocre Stewie impression - fans would hate it. WE would hate it.

We knew that if we were going to do this, we had to do it right. Everything from the script to the presentation to the way it will make you feel playing on your couch at home had to feel like Seth MacFarlane took a coding class and made it himself.

If we wanted to create a...
