Evergreen Avenue

A unique blend of visual novel, schedule management, and puzzle, this game will have you competing with your rival for the coveted slot of emissary to the great spirits from beyond. Evergreen Avenue takes place in a world that was once governed by magic - where spirits and men once peacefully coexisted.

The spirits eventually lost their influence over the realm and left humanity to its own devices. The king of the spirits has recently decided to return to this plane and bond with the common folk once more.

Players will choose between a male or female protagonist, each with their own unique backstory and traits, as they set out to impress the seven spirits who have come to judge them. The unselected character will become your rival, and you will...
 

Sony Announces Divekick: A Tale of Two Buttons for PSN and PS Vita

50°
54w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill has announced today that Divekick: A Tale of Two Buttons is coming for both PS3 via PSN and PS Vita consoles.

To quote: If you follow the fighting game community, you probably already know all about Divekick. If not, take a moment to read this intro post from Iron Galaxy to get up to speed.

Talk of Divekick at GDC last week was impossible to ignore, but how does it actually play? The game's minimalist design invites skepticism, but rest assured: this is a deeper, more addictive experience that you might imagine.

Divekick shrugs off the fighting game genre's longstanding barriers, creating a sleek, streamlined competitive experience - it's the primordial essence of what makes fighting games fun.

This is a game about outsmarting and outmaneuvering your opponent. Gone are complex input commands, phalangeal acrobatics, and superhuman timing windows. There are only two buttons: Dive and Kick. You won't be using the D-pad or analog stick. You can't block.

You can't even move... at least, not traditionally. To advance towards your opponent you tap Dive (a vertical leap), then Kick to propel your fighter feet-first.

A tap of the Kick button while on the ground results an evasive hop backward. Connecting...
 

Sony Announces Table Mini Golf Putts to PS Vita on April 9, 2013

55w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino has announced that Table Mini Golf is putting to PS Vita on April 9, 2013.

Below are the details, to quote: It's my pleasure to introduce you to a brand new game in the AR Play family of PlayStation Vita titles - Table Mini Golf (no, not table putt-putt - sorry Mid-west)!

Like the previous games in the AR Play series, Table Mini Golf is a bite-sized game with monster-sized scope - you'll use the AR Play cards to construct dozens of mini-golf courses across most flat surfaces of your choosing, and then pick one of three stylish characters to show off your putting skills in style.

Courses are split into one of two lively themes - Horror and Pirate - and come in both Rookie and Pro difficulties to satisfy those looking for a lighthearted and/or challenging good time.

These courses can be mixed and matched across two distinct modes, Free Play and Elimination, in which up to four players (or AI partners) can compete to see whose putting skills are above and below par. (See what I did there?)

Fear not, Table Mini Golf is not your standard game of nine holes - the good folks at Four Door Lemon have wedged in plenty of challenges, Trophies and extra goodies to keep you playing. Winning matches and satisfying certain...

200°
55w ago - Sony Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman of Santa Monica Studio announced that the God of War: Ascension PS3 update 1.03 deploys today with details below.

To quote: Champions! With God of War: Ascension out in the wild for two weeks now, we're seeing our ever-growing community becoming a legion of champions in multiplayer and thousands conquering Kratos' latest single-player journey.

We've been listening to every bit of constructive feedback on our boards, Twitter, Facebook, here on PlayStation.Blog, and around the internet stratosphere. Rest assured that our development team at Sony Santa Monica is committed to supporting you.

FACTOID: Ares is the most popular God allegiance thus far, but also has players with the lowest overall skill rating. Hades is the second most popular, and the highest skill rated players, evil incarnate FTW!

We're pleased to announce the release of our latest 1.03 update, deploying today. Though this update may be small, it throws an added support line at the Trial of Archimedes, and enhances multiplayer customization with a new appearance feature for your Champion - we call them "Marks".

We received extensive feedback from the community that the "Trial of Archimedes" section (Chapter 28) near the end of the game was excessively challenging....
 

Video: Sony Announces Metrico, a New PS Vita Pub Fund Exclusive

55w ago - Sony Digital Dreams Level Designer Roy van de Mortel has announced Metrico today, a new PS Vita Pub Fund exclusive!

Below are the details, to quote: Dear readers, we are Roy, Geert and Thijmen, soon to be known as Digital Dreams.

As you've probably never heard of us, a short introduction might be in order. We're from the Netherlands and we share a building with other game developers like Ronimo (Awesomenauts) and Vlambeer (Super Crate Box). We have a short history in AAA development but quickly found out that we wanted to start our own company and work on our own projects.

As a small indie company we strive to create elegant and meaningful experiences in the form of downloadable console games. With that said, we are very proud and super excited to finally announce Metrico, a unique PS Vita exclusive!

Metrico centers around infographics, as you might have noticed from the teaser above. It's an atmospheric puzzle action game that strives to create a unique mindset of its own. The idea has been in our heads for a few years, and was born out of noticing how beautiful infographics can look as an art form.





It was reinforced by seeing that infographics...
