Ethan: Meteor Hunter Announced for PS Vita, PS3 Demo & Price Cut

50°
10w ago - Seaven Studio Co-founder Olivier Penot announced that Ethan: Meteor Hunter is headed for PS Vita, complete with a PS3 demo and price cut with details below.

To quote: Hey guys! You've asked for it, and it's happening! I'm happy to announce that Ethan: Meteor Hunter, often described as "when Super Meat Boy meets Braid" and released in October on PlayStation 3 and PC, will arrive on PlayStation Vita very soon!

We will announce a definitive release date soon, but expect it this spring!

Can't remember what Ethan: Meteor Hunter is about? Let me refresh your memory. You can freeze time and manipulate the world with dynamic use of physics allowing endless possibilities: overcome challenging platforms and tricky puzzles the way YOU want.

Nothing is scripted, levels can be solved in multiple ways. You'll die repeatedly but you'll enjoy it - master the one-hit kill gameplay and feel like a hero when you succeed!

The game features leaderboards (shared between PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita), 50 levels within three different worlds, secret bonuses and challenging trophies!

You will also be able to use the touch screen as it just made sense with the freeze-time feature to move objects around.

And you can use the Rear Touch Pad to rotate objects...
 

Red Barrels Announces Outlast is Out Today: Survival Horror on PS4

400°
10w ago - Red Barrels Co-Founder Philippe Morin announced that Outlast PS4 is officially out today bringing survival horror to PlayStation 4.

To quote: Hello gamers! I'm Philippe Morin, one of the co-founders of Red Barrels.

Our first game, Outlast, is coming to PS4 today, and I'm excited to share that those of you who are PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download it completely for free.

Outlast itself is a survival-horror game created by a team of 11 people with one common goal: to scare the *bleep* out of you.

Here's the story so far... In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, the facility was recently re-opened by the "research and charity" branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation.

Taking advantage of the Asylum's history and remote location, they've been operating in strict secrecy. That is, they were until the reporter arrived.

Acting on a tip from an anonymous source, independent journalist Miles Upshur has broken into the facility, and what he is about to discover inside will walk a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something entirely other. Trapped with nightmares old and new, his only...
 

Video: Thief on PS4 and PS3: New Trailer Emerges, Out This Month

100°
10w ago - Producer Stephane Roy of Eidos Montreal shared a new video trailer today announcing that Thief will be hitting both PS4 and PS3 platforms this month.

To quote: It's a wrap! After liters of coffee and buckets of sweat, I'm really thrilled to be able to scream it from the rooftops: THIEF IS DONE!

That's right - Thief has gone gold and will be available on February 25th. To find out everything you need to know about the game we've created a new 101 trailer that we're releasing today.

Thief really brings to life the fantasy of being the ultimate Master Thief: planning a heist and infiltrating your target, avoiding all the security measures in your way, grabbing the most precious loot and escaping without getting caught.

I'm particularly proud of all the efforts the team has made to honor the history of the franchise while remaining connected to the gamers of today. This is something that our studio Eidos-Montreal achieved first with our previous game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution.





Fans of the original Thief will be relieved to find the ingredients that made it one of the most respected franchises in the industry.

The game doesn't take gamers for idiots, it's far from easy, and...

Video: Introducing Kodoku, New Survival Horror for PS4 and PS Vita

50°
11w ago - Carnivore Studio Founder Romain Toutain introduced a new survival horror videogame for PS4 and PS Vita platforms today alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: Hello! I'm Romain, founder of Carnivore Studio, an independent studio based in London.

You may have seen screenshots of Kodoku, the horror game we are currently working on for PS4 and PS Vita. If not, take a look at the images in this post.

For the uninitiated, here is a quick recap. The game is a horror and exploration game, set on a Japanese island. Instead of shooting guns at zombies, you will have to use strategy and stealth to survive all the Lovecraftian creatures - inspired by Japanese folklore - that live on the island.

You will also be able to use magic talismans you will learn to craft on the island, in order to find your best way to face enemies.





This game means a lot to us. We wanted an original art direction, a very specific mood and general feeling - decisions which, we think, will lead to a unique horror experience.

We grew up with horror games (most of us are huge fans of Siren series) and were fascinated by what we could do with all those legends and stories, so started building the game we wanted...
