As a huge fan of classic arcade gameplay, it's great to see the studio back on the scene so quickly after the phenomenal [Register or Login to view links].

The launch trailer was predictably splendid, but it also raised plenty of questions. Questions that I wanted answered! So I tracked down Housemarque's Mikael Haveri after the show in search of a few answers. Read on to find out a little more about what the brilliant Finnish team has in store.





PlayStation.Blog: How far back does the idea for Alienation go? Is it something you've wanted to make for some time?

Mikael Haveri: We've always been a tech-centric company. We start projects by just playing around with tech. We have our own engine...
 

Sony on Facing the Challenge in Lords of the Fallen on PlayStation 4

4w ago - Sony Online Content Producer Rhys Sutheran outlined some of the challenges PS4 fans will face in Lords of the Fallen on PlayStation 4 today.

To quote: "Do you like challenging games?"

So begins my first step into the demonic realm of the Fallen God - chief antagonist in Thomasz Gop and CI Games' forthcoming fantasy RPG, Lords of the Fallen on PS4.

In answer to that - still bearing the scars of endless Dark Souls re-starts - yes, I do like a challenge. Thomasz's jovial reply isn't exactly encouraging. "That's good! But you're still gonna die... a lot."

He's certainly not wrong. As executive producer in the small creative team at Poland's CI Games, Thomasz's friendly demeanor hides the dark heart of the man responsible for the most brutal, punishing, yet immensely satisfying fantasy RPG to make its way to PlayStation 4 so far.

I sat down with Thomasz at Gamescom 2014 to get hands-on with Lords of the Fallen's "second dimension," an alternate realm that the game's protagonist - and prolific sinner - Harkin will journey back and forth from throughout his blood-soaked quest.

"It's an important point in the game," Thomasz says as I face the first of the sword-wielding brutes blocking my path. "Learning more about both realms guides the player towards...

4w ago - Red Thread Games Creative Director Ragnar Tornquist announced today that Dreamfall Chapters is coming soon to PS4!

To quote: Hi everyone. My name is Ragnar Tornquist and I'm creative director at [Register or Login to view links] - the Norwegian indie studio working on Dreamfall Chapters; a Kickstarter-funded, story-driven episodic adventure coming soon to PS4.

We founded Red Thread in October 2012 in order to make what we call "games with soul" - mature, story-driven games with emotional and thematic depth, with heart... and soul.

In February 2013, we turned to Kickstarter with an initial goal of $850,000. One month later, we exceeded our wildest dreams by receiving almost twice that: an incredible $1.5 million! Through the amazing generosity and support of our fans, and with additional funding by the Norwegian Film Institute, we were finally able to begin work on our first game.

Dreamfall Chapters is a game about choice and consequence, about how the actions you take and the decisions you make - no matter how small or seemingly insignificant - touch the people around us, and how our lives in turn are shaped by the choices made by others.

It's also the continuation of a saga that began 15 years ago with The Longest Journey, a point-and-click...
