Video: Hohokum is Coming to PS4, PS3, PS Vita on August 12th

7w ago - Honeyslug Designer and Co-Founder Ricky Haggett made available a video today announcing that Hohokum is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms on August 12th, 2014.

To quote: Hey folks! We're back with another behind-the-scenes look at Hohokum, and to share that Hohokum will be available on August 12th, 2014 for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.

This one is focused on the roots of the game's design. A question we've been asked a lot is "How did you come up with this game?" The answer isn't straightforward, but hopefully this video will help to illustrate something of the process, as well as reveal some of our inspirations and design goals.





Dick and I started designing Hohokum back in 2008, and since that time it's gone through a lot of changes. For the first few years it was a side-project - something we worked on between other things, or when inspiration struck.

We didn't have a clear mechanic "hook" when starting out - more an overall sense of wanting to make a game that was relaxing and evoked a particular sense of free-form play. Over time this approach allowed the game we have today to emerge organically. I'm not sure we could have done it any other way.

Much of what the game is today...
 

Video: Bridging Generations in Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark

7w ago - Activision Lead Producer Andy Owen is bridging generations in Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark on both PS4 and PS3 consoles with a fresh video trailer below!

To quote: 2014 marks thirty years since giant, sentient robots from outer space brought their ancient war to our world and changed the way we look at the common, everyday tractor trailer.

When Hasbro asked us to play a role in ushering in the Transformers franchise's fourth decade with a new video game, we knew paying respect to that tradition - that shared history - had to be central to the experience we delivered.

That mission statement became Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, a third-person action adventure game that crosses the cosmos, intersecting with Generation One, Paramount Pictures' live-action films, and Activision's Cybertron titles to bridge these storied worlds for the very first time.

The hunt for the illusive and catastrophic Dark Spark - the calamitous counterpart to the Matrix of Leadership, capable of bending the universe to the user's will - is one which will launch players through the fabric of time and space.

The vulnerable human communities of Earth in the present and the war-torn, industrial labyrinths of Cybertron's shattered past will each play prominently throughout the...

Video: Aaru's Awakening is Coming to PS4 and PS3 This Summer

8w ago - Lumenox ehf Marketing Director Johann Ingi Gudjonsson announced that Aaru's Awakening is coming to PS4 and PS3 this Summer with a video trailer below!

To quote: When Aaru's Awakening started out as a school project at the University of Reykjavík, we wanted to create an original platformer. The genre is congested, so new ideas are essential. Inspired by the teleportation gun in Unreal Tournament, we came up with the idea of a teleportation themed platformer.

When the project moved from being a mere school project to winning the Icelandic Gaming Industry Game Creator competition - and thus giving us the funding to start a company around the game - we realized that we'd have to do something more than just rely on the teleportation mechanic.

That's when we decided to add the charging mechanic that would serve as a double jump and make certain objects breakable, as it would add fluidity to the game and allow for some intense in-air moments. We also knew that to really grab the attention of gamers we'd have to create an original art style, so the art director proposed we'd do it completely hand drawn.





When implementing the teleportation mechanic we were focused on having it deeply intertwined with the...
