Spelunky Update: New Features Now Live on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita

100°
2w ago - Sony Lead Account Manager Nick Suttner announced news of new features now live on their Spelunky update for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: With Spelunky finally making its glorious PS4 debut last month - hopefully you were able to grab it free in PlayStation Plus while it lasted! - there are more explorers than ever plumbing the depths of the jungle, battling incensed shopkeepers, and dying in an endless cavalcade of unexpected and hilarious ways.

For those new players still feeling overwhelmed, be sure to check out my Survival Guide from last year; a few basic tips go a long way, and the experience is even more fun when you're sharing tactics and stories of your travels with friends.

Speaking of sharing, you may have noticed that the PS4 has a few killer new features, including the ability to watch full replays of anyone's Daily Challenge run straight from the leaderboards, as well as seeing where your friends died (and what killed them) in the Daily Challenge, represented by their ghost. I'm thrilled to be able to announce that those features have been added to the PS3 and PS Vita versions, available now via a free update!

Not only that, but...
 

Ackk Studios: Indie RPG Y2K is Coming to PS4 and PS Vita

50°
2w ago - ACKK STUDIOS LLC Co-director Andrew Allanson announced today that Indie RPG Y2K is coming to PS4 and PS Vita platforms.

Below are the details, to quote: Hey, readers! I'm Andrew Allanson, from AckkStudios. I'm here to tell you about a 3D, turn-based, Japanese-style RPG that we are developing for PS4 and PS Vita. The game is called Y2K.

Y2K is being developed by Brian & Andrew Allanson with Jose Alfaro, Ian Bailey, and Brigid Allanson. We unite under the name of AckkStudios LLC! Ackk is partnering with Ysbryd Games to ensure polish and funding for the game.

So, what's all this Y2K stuff about?

For those of you too young to remember, Y2K refers to the year 2000 problem. Basically, it was a coding bug that was projected to create havoc in computers and computer networks around the world at the beginning of the year 2000... a lot of people thought the world was going to end because of this. It was pretty crazy.

With that in mind, here are more specifics about the premise: When an erratically-behaving elevator claims the life of a young woman, unemployed recent college graduate Alex Eggleston takes to a primitive 1990s message-board to find answers about the death of this stranger. His quest for answers leads to more questions as his research points him to...
 

Spiky Fish Games Unveils Sketchcross, A Puzzle Game for PS Vita

3w ago - Spiky Fish Games CEO Kendal Cormany unveiled Sketchcross, a puzzle game for PS Vita today with details below.

To quote: Hi everyone, my name is Kendal and I'm the CEO and lead programmer at Spiky Fish Games. We're excited to announce that our debut game, Sketchcross, is launching exclusively for PS Vita in early 2015.

Sketchcross is a logic puzzler based on the nonogram ruleset. If you're not familiar, think of a mix between crosswords and sudoku. You're given number clues on the rows and columns to help sketch in the corresponding squares on the grid.

Doing so starts to reveal the picture you're creating. A full-fledged nonogram-based game has not yet been fully realized for Playstation here in North America, and we were determined to change that.

Sketchcross will launch with 50 puzzles ranging from simple 5X5 shapes to complex 30X30 animals. The game has been designed to be easily expandable and our plan is to offer additional puzzles after launch.

Solving puzzles reveals the completed shape in block form, solving all the puzzles in a book awards the player that book's unique trophy. Trophy's are stored in your trophy room and are accessible at any time. Additionally, each puzzle has a time leaderboard where you can compare your completed times with the...
 

Kalio Announces Ring Run Circus Hits PS Vita on November 11th

3w ago - Kalio's Ciro Mondueri announced today that Ring Run Circus hits PS Vita on November 11th, 2014 with details below.

To quote: Hello, readers! My name is Ciro and I'm part of Kalio, a small independent studio in Uruguay.

We are thrilled to announce that our latest game Ring Run Circus will be launching on PS Vita and Playstation TV on November 11th, 2014. The launch price will be $9.99, with PS Plus members receiving a 20% off discount for a limited time.

Ring Run Circus is a unique sort of game which we like to call a "ring-former": an action-puzzle game set in a dream world of connected rings. Players take the role of three uniquely talented acrobats - Nina, Ned, and Nelson - and help them navigate this strange world full of hazards, circus animals, and tricky puzzles.

The goal of each level is to grab the colorful key and get to the exit door as quickly as possible leaving no stars behind. The controls are quite simple; one button to ride on the outside or inside of the rings, and another one to activate each acrobat's special ability: Nina jumps, Ned punches, and Nelson triggers mechanisms to move rings around.

Don't let the seemingly simple controls deceive you, though. There is enough challenge waiting, not only for your skill - proper timing to change...

3w ago - Telltale Games Community Lead Laura Perusco shared a video announcing The Wolf Among Us is out today on PS4 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: For fans who've been waiting to play [Register or Login to view links] on PS4 or PS Vita, the wait is over!

All 5 episodes in the season are now available in stores and via download, and the whole season is also available on PS3 at retail for the first time today.





And in case you missed it earlier, The Walking Dead: Season Two is now available on PS4 and Vita as well!

The Wolf Among Us looks just as gorgeous on Vita as it does on a bigger screen with the PS4. When we first started working on the series, we implemented some new stuff in our engine to make the visuals look as much as possible like a moving comic book, and both the Vita and PS4 do a fantastic job of showing that off.

Not sure what The Wolf Among Us is all about? It's a Telltale episodic series based on the award-winning Fables comics by Bill Willingham, where fairytale characters are real and live in exile in New York City.

Don't be fooled by its...
