Video: Chime Super Deluxe Hits PSN on March 29 with Multiplayer

50°
162w ago - Today Producer Brynley Gibson at Zoe Mode has shared a video announcing that Chime Super Deluxe hits PSN on March 29, 2011 and includes four-player multiplayer.

To quote: We're excited to announce that Chime Super Deluxe will be released and available to download from the PlayStation Store on 29th of March in the US. We can't wait!

In the meantime, I would like to tell you a little more about what Super Chime Deluxe has in store for you.

To play the game, you have to place down irregular-shaped blocks one at a time on the grid, fit them together 3 X 3 or more and you will build a quad. The quads score you points and this creates coverage, which fills the grid.

The challenge is to fill the grid before the time runs out. This core rule set alongside multipliers, time bonuses, block fragment crashes and more create an addictive and mesmerising strategic experience.





But where does the music come in? Each block you place plays a note, and a different note depending on where it is placed. Every quad you create plays a longer musical phrase depending on the size and shape of it. The backing track is driven forward depending on how much coverage you have. The composition of the music is therefore remixed by you as you play.
 

FluffyLogic Developer Diary Profiles Eat Them PSN - Week Four

50°
175w ago - FluffyLogic Designer James Parker has shared week four from their developer diary profiling Eat Them for PSN today.

To quote: I want to talk to you about Power Bars. I know, interesting stuff! It's all rock and roll here at top flight game developers FluffyLogic.

One of the aims of the game is to maintain the pace throughout. We want the game to be pick-up-and-play - so session times will be short but the nature of the game will encourage repeat play.

We are aiming for an old-school arcade feel and we want people to sneak in one more game before school, or when coming back from the pub, or between courses at a swanky dinner party!

A game that is played in five minute chunks needs to be pacey and efficient - there's no time for standing around when you should be beating the daylights out of a skyscraper or chomping through a bus load of tourists.

The other thing that's important is eating people; if monsters aren't eating, the game doesn't live up to its name and whoever came up with the title it is going to go away disappointed.

So this brings us to power bars. In the E3 version of the game there are separate...

192w ago - Big Sandwich Games Design Director Tyler Sigman has revealed today that Hoard is coming to PAX, and that four-player co-op is also confirmed for the PS3 and PSP title via PSN.

To quote: Dragons, gold, jewels, and princesses – they'll all be on display at PAX next month when Hoard makes its first appearance to the general public!

For those of you that don't know, Hoard is an arcade action title coming to PSN (both for PS3 and PSP). In this score-attack game, up to four players take the part of small dragons with very big ambitions, and try to amass a hoard of glittering treasure in over 30 different kingdoms.

How do you get treasure, you ask? By BURNING things, of course! And kidnapping princesses for ransom... At the Big Sandwich Games booth (#3012), we'll have two screens of non-stop dragon combat action, swag, and prizes for a daily high-score competition. Oh, and we'll also have a real, honest-to-goodness princess. So come get your firebreathing on!

Since our last post, we can confirm four-player co-op play has been added to the game – thanks for all the comments! That rounds our feature set out with Treasure, Princess Rush, Hoard (Survival), and Co-op modes. We support...

200w ago - SCEA Santa Monica Studio Managing Producer Deborah Mars has revealed today that Fat Princess is getting fatter, with both Fat Roles DLC and a Fourplay Party Feature included in PS3 Patch version 1.06.

To quote: On Tuesday June 29, our favorite heiress to the throne will get a little added bulk thanks to our good friends at Atomic Operations, and we can't wait for all you Fat Princess fans to check it out!

Fat Princess Fat Roles DLC (USD $4.99) unleashes Pirates, Ninjas and Giants (oh my!) into the world of Fat Princess. These three new character classes bring a whole new level of awesomeness to the frenzied 32-player battles alongside our beloved royal beauty.





After picking up the DLC, a new multi-class magic hat spawner will be activated in every level of Fat Princess. Pirates can call in cannon ball attacks, Ninjas can hide in the shadows to sneak through doors, and the all-mighty Giants can cause rumbling earthquakes and gain health by chomping on their enemies.

We're also very happy to announce that Patch 1.06 activates the new Fat Princess Party feature!

Due to the overwhelming fan response, Patch1.06 delivers four-player same-console co-op for FREE to everyone...
 

Previously on Four Days: The Heavy Rain PS3 Online Experience

219w ago - European Product Manager Alex Pavey has shared a recap today on Four Days: The Heavy Rain PS3 Online Experience, as follows:

Last week saw the second chapter of Four Days: The Heavy Rain Online Experience unfold.

The investigation took a dark turn, as participants took part in a criminal investigation - handling an emergency call, investigating crime scene evidence, questioning a well-meaning but unreliable witness, and ultimately submitting data to the Bureau for further analysis.

At the end of the week, all those who submitted the correct evidence pack from the crime scene were given an exclusive voucher code to download the Heavy Rain playable demo from the PlayStation Store. The demo will not be made generally available until this Thursday, 11th February - so there's still time for you to get involved and get hold of the demo early.

Head over to www.HeavyRain.com to register, and then take a look at the active community over on the Facebook Fanpage if you need any hints or help.

The final stage of the investigation will take place this week - you've been seconded to work with the Bureau, helping them assess...
