Video: The Unfinished Swan Dev Diary: Original Music & Sound

50°
99w ago - Composer Joel Corelitz has shared a Developer Diary video today spotlighting The Unfinished Swan original music and sound alongside a list below of ten things fans should know!

To quote: At its core, The Unfinished Swan is about the joy of creation and self-discovery. These themes revolve around two central characters: one young, who has dealt with great loss and loneliness, and one old, who must reconcile his current stage of life as well as his fate.

One of the initial conversations I had with Peter Scaturro, music supervisor at the Santa Monica Studio involved using the key components of the score to offset the melancholy of the story. I consciously steered away from anything that felt too sad, stark or desolate. Instead,

I focused on crafting a mood that was lush, curious, and warm. We wanted the music to serve as a companion for Monroe and the player as they explored the world of the game. To achieve this, I chose to highlight certain instruments and sounds that were inspired by the characters themselves.

Monroe's signature sound is played by plucked and mallet instruments like marimba and harp - youthful, resonant sounds that highlight his innocence as well as the storybook-quality of the game. The bizarre, pompous King is heralded by gritty, electronic harpsichord...

108w ago - Today Mathew Kumar of the Sound Shapes Team has announced that the title officially hits PSN today, and has made available a new Sound Shapes launch trailer below!

To quote: Sound Shapes is out on PSN today! It's the culmination of a long journey for our boss-men Jonathan Mak and Shaw-Han Liem, who worked on the concept for... more years than they probably want me to say before the reveal at E3 2011, and having worked on the game for a year myself now I think I can speak for the whole team when I say we just want you to play it.

Like... we don't want you to finish reading this blog post, or even probably watch the launch trailer we made. We made [Register or Login to view links] for you to play! So when today's update goes live, get yourself over to the PlayStation Store on your PS3 or PS Vita and pick it up!

The title is $14.99 ($11.99 for PlayStation Plus members this week only) and part of the PSN Play promotion, so if you buy one or more other of the games in the promotion you'll get an increasing amount of money back.

Most importantly, however - Sound Shapes is a cross-play title. Whether you buy it on PS3 or PS Vita, you receive both versions for one price. We cannot stress this enough.

We've definitely tried to...
 

Video: Sound Shapes Preorder, Level Editor & Trophy Mode Detailed

50°
109w ago - Today Mathew Kumar has shared a fresh video trailer alongside preorder details for Sound Shapes complete with a Level Editor and Trophy Mode below!

To quote: Fellows! We've are absolutely gagging here to get Sound Shapes into your hands. Gagging! We wish it could be in your hands right now!

But unfortunately that can't be, as this week saw the release of The Expendables 2 as part of the PSN Play promotion, not us. However! If you're popping into PlayStation Store to pick it up at any point this week you can also pre-order Sound Shapes and get an exclusive PS3 theme.

That's not to forget PSN Play's money-saving promotion: the more games you pick up, the more money you save. So if you've already picked up The Expendables 2, you'll get a cool three bucks back if you pick up Sound Shapes.

But enough of that waffle. Because we're excited to get Sound Shapes into your hands, we wanted to kick start your imaginations by having one of our founders, Jonathan Mak, walk you through level creation using our level tools. And if you're the kind of player who is more excited to *play* than create (and that's fine, too) we're revealing our Trophy mode. And yes, there is a Platinum.

So, until this point we've been showing you lots of different parts of our...

111w ago - Today Mathew Kumar of the Sound Shapes Team has announced that Sound Shapes is getting its Beck on with new tracks via PSN!

To quote: There's just under three weeks until the release of Sound Shapes on PS Vita and PS3 on August 7th, and it's time we sat down and had a serious chat with you.

You see, we've been keeping a secret from you. Yes, here in Queasy Towers, our glittering skyscraper in downtown Toronto, so beloved by the city that they're building us a moat (they claim they're upgrading streetcar lines, but we know what they're really doing), we have been hiding someone from you.

Although to this point we've revealed stars that shine as brightly as [Register or Login to view links], [Register or Login to view links], and [Register or Login to view links], it wasn't until Wednesday that we were able to sneak out the news that Grammy Award-winning musician [Register or Login to view links]- mastermind behind Mellow Gold, Odelay and most recently 2008′s Modern Guilt- has been working with us on three brand new tracks for the game.

Beck's more than just familiar with the world of video games. In fact, with his 2005 album Guero he actually snuck out a wee EP, Hell Yes, which remixed tracks from that album...

117w ago - With E3 2012 officially kicking off tomorrow, Mathew Kumar of the Sound Shapes Team has just confirmed that the video game will be heading to both PS3 and PS Vita alongside a video of Jim Guthrie's cat below!

To quote: Look, E3 is here, and we know there's all kinds of hot news coming at you from everywhere.

So over here at Queasy HQ, we've decided to kick things off a little early with pretty much the biggest announcement we're allowed to give you right now: Sound Shapes is coming to PSN on August 7th. That's... like... a few weeks away!

Are you breathing into a paper bag right now to avoid hyperventilating? We are, which is making it kind of hard to type. And if you're not, you should be, because we're also taking this opportunity to sneak out the fact that Sound Shapes is, day-and-date, also coming to PS3.

Yes. That thing you have under your TV, or maybe beside it (or possibly on top, but that sounds kind of dangerous, man!).

And no, we haven't been looking in your windows; we've been too busy making Sound Shapes and pricing it at $14.99 for BOTH VERSIONS. Buy it on PS Vita or PS3, and enjoy it on either system! We know. We're freaking out too!

Through the magic of crossplay, you'll be able to share content between the two systems without...
