53w ago - The Workshop President Peter Akemann has announced alongside the official PlayStation 3 launch trailer that Sorcery is casting a spell on PS3 gamers everywhere today!
To quote: Well, it's been a long time coming but today it's finally here - Sorcery! PlayStation Move is a magic wand at last!
Sorcery is the first of its kind - a full-fledged action adventure created natively for the PlayStation Move motion controller. All of us at The Workshop feel tremendously privileged that we could bring this game to life.
Many of you have been following us since our first announcement back at E3 2010 and we have worked tirelessly since then to meet the expectations that arose from our on-stage presentation.
It was a massive effort, and I cannot say enough about of the men and women who gave themselves so completely to the task. I also have to thank PlayStation for their profound commitment and willingness to believe in the vision, even when the road ahead was uncertain.
We all believe the result is truly something special - a timeless adventure and a genuinely new and immersive gaming experience.
A real game that serious gamers can sink their teeth into, yet one that casual players...
53w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has made available some video footage today of Foosball 2012 as part of their developer diary series which spotlights the PlayStation Move motion controls below.
To quote: In March, we announced our upcoming PS3 and PS Vita game Foosball 2012.
And now we've returned to showcase a series of short developer diaries where we introduce you to some of the game's coolest features, like PlayStation Move support, full cross-platform compatibility between PS3 and PS Vita and also the online multiplayer mode.
Our first video demonstrates Foosball 2012 and PlayStation Move motion controllers in action, showing that you can play this game exactly the way you are used from a real table football ("foosball") game.
Thanks to the precision and zero lag of PlayStation Move, even the slightest movements of your hands can be properly translated into the game, allowing you to precisely control the shot power, positions of your foosmen, and so on.
One or two PS Move controllers can be used by one player, or you can ignore motion controls and play with the time-tested DualShock 3 controller, where the left stick controls the poles and movements of the ball and the right stick is used to shoot, allowing you to accurately aim and control the shot power.

To quote: In this new behind-the-scenes video, our final installment of our four-part series detailing the making of Sorcery, we discuss what it took to create the game's vast, magical universe.
You'll gain insight into the numerous creative decisions that we had to make, such as crafting the look and feel of the different environments - from The Realm of the Dead to the Faerie Forest - and the strange and dangerous beasts that inhabit them.
You'll hear from the development team on how we went about making a fantasy world feel otherworldly, details on the backstory behind places like the Endless Stair and the Faerie Forest, and some anecdotes on why the prettiest character in Sorcery is also one of the most dangerous!
Sorcery hits store shelves next week, Tuesday, May 22nd. For more info on this eagerly anticipated PlayStation Move title, visit our official site.
55w ago - Sorcery Creative Director Brian Upton of Santa Monica Studios has shared a video today showcasing the making of Sorcery, which spotlights the magical technology of the PlayStation Move controller.
To quote: This is the first post in a four-part series from the development team about the making of Sorcery.
In this video we talk about how artists, engineers, and designers at The Workshop designed the game to take advantage of the unique capabilities of the Move controller in order to create a completely original spell-casting experience.
While some motion-controlled games feel like you're playing "Simon Says", the gestures in Sorcery are fluid and organic.
Aiming spells and chaining them together into powerful combos requires both creative thinking and quick reflexes. Here's a look...
Sorcery will be available in stores in North America on Tuesday, May 22nd.
56w ago - Plastic Studios Game Director Michal Staniszewski has made available a video today unveiling the PlayStation Move mystery game Datura, which hits PSN on May 8th 2012.
To quote: Hello, I'm Michal from Team Plastic and we are really happy to bring you Datura, which we can confirm today is coming to PSN on May 8th.
Datura is a spicy mixture between an old-school adventure and a modern interactive experience. The game has a couple of interpretation levels, so it's up to you to experience it on your own and share your thoughts afterward with others.
From a technical standpoint, Datura brings you a novel gaming mechanics based on the PlayStation Move motion controller. We created a virtual hand that you can operate and touch nearly everything in the game.
If you don't have a motion controller, you can still play with a DualShock 3 controller. For an even greater experience, Datura also fully supports stereoscopic 3D.
The game was designed to have a film like narrative and we encourage you to play through it in one session to really experience as one. We are excited about releasing it and will be happy to read your reactions afterwards.
