Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams Jumps Onto PSN Today

100°
84w ago - Black Forest Games Community Manager Dietrich Limper announced that Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams jumps onto PSN today with details below.

To quote: Good news! Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is available today, 19th June! Now that the wait is over, we'd like to share with you the history behind The Sisters.

Armin Gessert (code), Manfred Trenz (graphics) and Chris Hülsbeck (music) were the masterminds behind the original The Great Giana Sisters back in 1987. Their company back then was called Time Warp Productions and the final game was published for Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, MSX2, and Commodore 64 by Rainbow Arts.

The Great Giana Sisters is a 2D side-scrolling arcade game in which the player controled either Giana or her sister Maria. Each level contained a number of dream crystals which awarded points to the player. Enemies could be defeated either by jumping on them or shooting them after obtaining power-ups. The "Fire Wheel" transformed Giana into a punk with the ability to crush rocks by jumping beneath them.

As you can see, these old concepts of the game are still in place in 2013, especially the change to the punk version of Giana, but let's get back to the old days.

A certain other game publisher became aware of the game and the success and...
 

Ice-cool Skate Em Up OlliOlli Kickflips Onto PS Vita This Year

50°
88w ago - Roll7 Creative Director John Ribbins announced today that the ice-cool skate 'em up OlliOlli video game kickflips onto PS Vita later this year.

Below are the details, to quote: Hello. I'm John. I'm the game designer at Roll7! We started in 2008, when I teamed up with two entrepreneurs Simon and Tom. The company's initial mission was to try and combine Simon and Tom's passion for training disengaged youth in video game design, with my love of making games.

The dream from day one was to make our own games, but as a business it seemed impossible to make it work, so for the next four years we worked for various clients, making everything from websites, to apps, to games controlled by your brain.

In the meantime I spent countless hours in the evenings making the games we really wanted to make, while Simon and Tom looked for viable ways to transition from an agency to an actual game developer.

By early 2012 we'd scraped enough cash together to take some time off from client work and we set about making a game for iOS called Gets to the Exit.

We got some nice reviews (an 8/10 in Edge), but not everyone liked it ([Register or Login to view links]):

Cult Studio Llamasoft Blazes Onto PlayStation Vita With TxK

100°
92w ago - Llamasoft Founder Jeff Minter announced today that Cult Studio Llamasoft is blazing onto PlayStation Vita with TxK.

Below are the details, to quote: Nearly 20 years ago, in 1994, one of the best-known [Register or Login to view links] games ever was released on the Atari Jaguar - the seminal Tempest 2000. This title came to be recognized as one of the finest games on the system.

Based upon an early '80s arcade game, T2K aimed to be more than just a port of an older game. Instead, T2K took that old classic game as an inspiration, and offered up something entirely new and modern.

The original coin-op game was based around a color vector display - a look it was impossible to replicate on raster displays and with graphics hardware of the day, so T2K defined a style all of its own.

The floating platforms in space that defined the play areas were created using Gouraud-shaded polygons, as were the enemies that populated them - in that pre-PlayStation era such polygonal graphics were considered cutting-edge.

T2K also introduced design elements that were to become Llamasoft trademarks - flowing particle systems, full-screen video feedback effects, and objects that shattered into thousands of glowing particles.
