The Audio of Road Not Taken for PS4 and PlayStation Vita Detailed

37w ago - Audio Producer Daniel Simmons shared details today on the audio of Road Not Taken for PS4 and PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: We recently added the first batch of sounds to Road Not Taken, and the team got really excited, like the game was finally coming together!

It's funny because it was such a small thing in relation to the huge amount of work that has already gone into the game, but it really highlights the difference sound can make in the way we experience things.

The world of Road Not Taken is made up of magical and natural surroundings. That makes me happy, because even though I love the bleeps and bloops you can get from synthesis, my favorite way to make sounds is from scratch like a [Register or Login to view links].

It just so happened that I started working on the RNT audio catalog in the fall, right when there were piles of dried leaves everywhere - perfect! I brought a bucket of them inside and rustled them, crunched and dropped them... my studio was a mess!

Also, if you listen closely to the [Register or Login to view links], you can hear some percussion that was made from dry sticks. At the time I was at a cottage on vacation with my family, so I used a...
 

Video: Jay Leno Takes Gran Turismo 6 on PS3 for a Test Drive

41w ago - Sony Product Manager Ken Chan shared video footage today of talk show host Jay Leno taking Gran Turismo 6 on PS3 for a test drive.

To quote: Collector and auto expert Jay Leno took two cars from Gran Turismo 6 for test drives in the latest film episode of [Register or Login to view links]: his own 1000 horsepower Oldsmobile Toronado, and also the Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo concept car designed especially for the game.

In addition to being one of the first to drive the Vision Gran Turismo in the game, Leno is the first person outside Mercedes-Benz to pilot the Vision GT concept car - which was revealed at the recent LA Auto Show - in real life, using a radio controller through his LA garage.

Mercedes-Benz brought the AMG Vision Gran Turismo to Jay's garage directly from the LA Show. The Vision is the first of a series of concept cars from various manufacturers made for Gran Turismo 6. But, so far, the only one to be turned into a real car. Leno said he thinks games are taking over in determining what cars achieve cult status.





"Video games are where cars will achieve cult status going forward and, like the Mercedes-Benz, where we will see cars make their debuts...
 

Video: The Unique Puzzles of Road Not Taken on PlayStation 4

41w 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...

How Unexpected Life Events Inspired Road Not Taken on PS Vita / PS4

50°
49w ago - Spry Fox Chief Creative Officer Daniel Cook shared details today on how unexpected life events inspired Road Not Taken on PS Vita and PS4.

To quote: There is a repeated theme in our upcoming game, Road Not Taken, which we announced here back in August. The characters in our little northern town have all lived their lives according to the same plan: first you go to school, then you get a job, then you fall in love and finally you start a family.

But life doesn't always work out that way.

I grew up expecting to live a very traditional Norman Rockwell-style life. We had a little house on a lovely winding road in rural Maine. I did well in school; checked all the official checkboxes. Then upon entering the real world, things fell apart.

On the job front, I've been through multiple careers. My "safe" job at a large stable employer - the sort of job many people dream about - well, that was an incredibly bad fit for me.

I've joined sketchy start-ups that failed. And some that succeeded. I've been fired for idly drawing pictures of planes inserted into bums. I've been hired at double the salary because (as I learned later) I wore the right type of hat to the interview.

I live in a tiny condo in a big city, not a house in the suburbs. There...
