Video: Motorbike PSN Revs Up on PlayStation Network Today

100°
43w ago - Founder of baKno Games Andres Martinez announced alongside a video trailer that Motorbike PSN revs up on PlayStation Network today.

To quote: Greetings PlayStation community! baKno Games is a small game development studio based in Florida and Motorbike marks our first home console release.

We noticed that there wasn't a game quite like Motorbike currently available on the PlayStation Network, so we took our love of extreme sports and stunt bikes and used it to bridge this gap.

As you might have gathered from the images, Motorbike is a 2.5D stunt bike trials game in which you use the controller to accelerate and balance while traversing ramps, hazards, and other obstacles.

The game features 80 original tracks, thousands of online courses (yes, you read that right, thousands), and 40 exclusive tracks immediately available for download. Motorbike also includes an intuitive and easy-to-use Track Editor, which contains all the same tools we used to create the original levels.

We've done our best to step it up for the PlayStation 3 release of Motorbike. In addition to 40-PS3 exclusive tracks, we've included a toolbox full of PS3-exclusive accessories, objects, hazards and doodads in the game's Track Editor.

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams Jumps Onto PSN Today

100°
44w ago - Black Forest Games Community Manager Dietrich Limper announced that Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams jumps onto PSN today with details below.

To quote: Good news! Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is available today, 19th June! Now that the wait is over, we€d like to share with you the history behind The Sisters.

Armin Gessert (code), Manfred Trenz (graphics) and Chris Hülsbeck (music) were the masterminds behind the original The Great Giana Sisters back in 1987. Their company back then was called Time Warp Productions and the final game was published for Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, MSX2, and Commodore 64 by Rainbow Arts.

The Great Giana Sisters is a 2D side-scrolling arcade game in which the player controled either Giana or her sister Maria. Each level contained a number of dream crystals which awarded points to the player. Enemies could be defeated either by jumping on them or shooting them after obtaining power-ups. The €Fire Wheel€ transformed Giana into a punk with the ability to crush rocks by jumping beneath them.

As you can see, these old concepts of the game are still in place in 2013, especially the change to the punk version of Giana, but let€s get back to the old days.

A certain other game publisher became aware of the game and the success and...
