20w ago - Lead Creative Farl Lee at XPEC Entertainment Inc made available a video today spotlighting Do Not Fall Out PSN, which arrives to fans on PlayStation Network tomorrow.
Below are the details, to quote: Have you ever thought: "What if the floor disappeared after you stepped on it?" Perhaps you have seen this idea in a game before. What if whole levels were built around that? That's the starting point for our new game, Do Not Fall.
Starting a title from scratch, creating a gameplay mechanic, story, art direction and a brand new IP was definitely not an easy task. Actually, it was challenging, but exciting at the same time.
Originally, we wanted to create a game that allows four players to play together. A disappearing floor is a common gameplay design in action platform games, but what would it be like with four people playing together at the same time?

21w ago - Sanuk Games Manager Yan Marchal announced today that Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign rises on PS3 tomorrow in 1080p.
To quote: I'm ecstatic to announce that Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign shall be brought to life in the US on PlayStation Store for PS3 on July 16th, pinned with a bargain price of only $5.99.
Originally developed by Space Monkeys International, a studio renowned for their top-end hidden object adventure games, Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign comes to PS3 in an all-new high-definition edition with native 1080p graphics.
When the game was first presented to me, I was impressed by its art quality, level of polish, and amount of content that were clearly above genre standards. Since then, most PC users have echoed my feelings with high ratings, while also praising the game's original soundtrack and spellbinding atmosphere. The availability of yet-to-be-used HD 1080p graphics for all scenes further convinced me that a PS3 edition was simply necessary.
The game has you play as James Voodoo as he investigates mysterious attacks through the forsaken hamlet of Ravenhill, the wealthy city of Richtown, and a variety of breathtaking sceneries inspired by major fiction genres: adventure, film noir, thriller, steampunk, and more!
