1w ago - Spry Fox Chief Creative Officer Daniel Cook made available some video footage today of the unique puzzles of Road Not Taken on PlayStation 4 below.
To quote: How might a roguelike look like if it featured a thinker and explorer, instead of a traditional warrior? If being clever was more important than being strong? That's a design challenge we've attempted to tackle with Road Not Taken.
You play a ranger in a frigid, enchanted forest, trying to save lost children. You start with a few easy-to-learn abilities. You can pick up any adjacent objects, you can carry them around, and you can throw them.
Trees, boulders, bears - they all float at your command. But you need to be careful; whenever you carry things, it costs you stamina. If you run out of stamina, you collapse face-first into the snow. No checkpoints, no reloads. It's over.
The Environment is the Threat
In Road Not Taken, both the challenge and the exciting moments come from the setting itself. You'll be intrigued by strange objects that you haven't encountered before, and whose characteristics are never fully explained. There are wild creatures running about, spiky plants that hurt you if you pick them up, and blizzards...
1w ago - IGN Senior Editor Colin Moriarty announced today that the IGN PlayStation application is out today on PS4.
Below are the details, to quote: Greetings once again, PlayStation.Blog! My name's Colin, IGN's Senior Editor.
You may have seen me skulking around IGN PlayStation and making terrible predictions on Podcast Beyond, but today, I'm not here to make any pizza bets with you. No, I'm here to tell you about something exciting we've cooked up for PS4 owners.
IGN for PlayStation, our new app for PS4, is available today, and I'm pleased to tell you that you can download it for yourself - free of charge - when PlayStation Store updates. The app is currently exclusive to PS4, and will come to PS3 and PS Vita next year.
How does this benefit you, exactly? IGN's PS4 app will make you more popular with your friends, give you more energy, and even make the food you eat taste better (that's not true). But more importantly, our PS4 app will give you direct access to all of IGN's video content, letting you create custom playlists, while finding and consuming the exact content you're seeking.
What's truly cool about the app, however, is how granular you can get with it. You can rapidly come in and out of full-screen view, minimize a video...

1w ago - Voofoo Studios Creative Producer Shaun Read shared a video announcing that Pure Pool for PS4 brings the pool hall home on PlayStation 4.
To quote: VooFoo has been building quite a reputation for bringing you gorgeous looking games, and today is no exception with the announcement of our latest labor of love: Pure Pool for PS4.
Over the years we've worked hard to create visually stunning games. From the the critically acclaimed Hustle Kings, winner of Kotaku's 'Best Downloadable Sports Game of the Year' award, to the visual tour-de-force that is Pure Chess, the most realistic looking chess videogame you'll ever play; we certainly like our games to make jaws drop here at VooFoo.
We like our pool games here at Voofoo, so when Ripstone approached us with the opportunity to develop one for Sony's new hardware, we jumped at the chance.
Forget everything you know about pool games, because we're taking Pure Pool to a whole other dimension! This game will bring a living, breathing, connected Pool Hall to your living room. By now, you know we enjoy pushing hardware to the limit to create photo-realistic games.
