Video: How Multiplayer Works in Frozen Synapse Prime on PS Vita

2d ago - Double 11 Design Manager Gareth Wright shared a video today detailing how multiplayer works in Frozen Synapse Prime on PS Vita below.

To quote: Hey Folks, We're getting very close to the release of [Register or Login to view links], and I wanted to go over what is really the biggest aspect of the game - the online multiplayer.

Online multiplayer in Prime is both synchronous and asynchronous, as the game is hosted off Double Eleven's set of dedicated Amazon cloud servers.

In other words, two players can either play against each other at the same time when they both have a PS Vita in hand, or they can play it like chess by post, where turns can be taken minutes to days at a time. So you could quick-match against an online opponent now, or take a weekly turn against your friend if you're not able to meet at the same time to play.





The asynchronous multiplayer aspect allows you to have several games on the go at once, against friends and opponents around the world. The game alerts you when a turn has been made in one of your matches, and players can track and manage their matches via their...
 

Q-Games Shares New Gameplay Details on The Tomorrow Children

50°
2d ago - Q-Games Ltd President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert shared new PS4 gameplay details today on The Tomorrow Children for PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: I'm excited to be at TGS announcing more news about The Tomorrow Children. As we continue to build and perfect The Tomorrow Children's open world concept, we wanted to expand upon the details we revealed at Gamescom and share more about the game.

The Tomorrow Children is an online game, combining synchronous and asynchronous gameplay. This is to encourage a fresh style of play. If you just want to explore by yourself you can and other players can't see you.

But if you want to interact with other players, your actions in the world will begin to pop up in their worlds. The world itself is synchronized too, so your interactions appear in both your own world and theirs.

For example: if you dig a hole, that hole will be dug in the same place for other players in their world. It's pretty interesting to see people working together within this system, digging out to find resources and using them to build up their towns together.

People have asked what kind of roles players can assume in the game. The Tomorrow Children is a sandbox but there are some loosely defined roles you can take on such as Radio Officer which...

Curve Studios Announces Thomas Was Alone Coming Soon to PS4

100°
2d ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke announced today that Thomas Was Alone is coming soon to PS4 with details below.

To quote: Here at Curve we've had the pleasure of bringing a variety of games to PlayStation in the last two years, made by a great mix of different indie developers.

Thomas Was Alone was the very first of those games, and its ubiquitous creator Mike Bithell was the first indie developer who we got in touch with. A lifelong PlayStation fan, Mike was genuinely excited by the idea of having the game appear on PS3 and PS Vita, and we had a great time creating that version.

With that in mind, we're now happy to announce that we're bringing Thomas Was Alone to PS4, and it will be available to everyone as a cross buy title. That means if you picked up Thomas on PS3 or PS Vita at any point last year, you'll be able to grab the game completely free on PS4.

If you missed Thomas Was Alone the first time around, the PS4 version will give you a chance to play one of the most popular independent games ever made.

A game about rectangles and friendship, Thomas Was Alone's graphics may be minimalist, but its gameplay is engaging, and the story it tells is quite unlike anything else in gaming. It also has the added bonus of being narrated from start...
 

The Darker Side of London in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments

50°
2d ago - Frogwares developer Olga Ryzhko shared a fresh video today spotlighting the darker side of London in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments below.

To quote: Hi! I'm Olga from Frogwares. After having explored Holmes' new skills in previous trailers for Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments - coming from September 30th on PS4 and PS3.

I'm delighted to introduce today the complexity of not only the cases, but the people of Crimes & Punishments. It's a trailer about empathy, blame, and punishment - not of the suspect, but of Holmes himself, as he lives with the decisions made throughout the game.





Crimes & Punishments introduces moral changes to the Sherlock Holmes series. Not only are you charged with selecting the suspect who committed the crime, but also what to do with him, either handing him to the police or empathizing with his or her situation, setting them free after a dressing down in true Holmes style. Their fate will be left in your hands, with all the responsibility on Holmes' conscience.

Behind the guise of the prim and proper, Victorian England is a characteristically dark place, with its denizens as layered in extravagant clothing as they are in lies, deceit, and jealousy of their brethren....
