Backgammon Blitz Comes to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita This Winter

50°
23w ago - Head of Mobile Robert Karp at The Fyzz Facility announced today that Backgammon Blitz is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita this Winter (Tuesday in the US).

To quote: Update: We are very pleased to share that Backgammon Blitz will be launching April 15th for PS3, PS Vita and PS4, priced at a bargain $7.99 Not only do you get the first ever recreation of this age-old board game for latest and greatest generation of consoles, but there is also the brand new and exclusive Blitz arcade mode, which takes the wonderful game of Backgammon and adds a whole new layer of depth and strategy.

I'm just the messenger, of course. The talented folks behind this lovely little title are known as VooFoo. Having made a name for themselves with Hustle Kings and Pure Chess, Backgammon feels like a step onwards and upwards for the studio, taking all of their strengths (gorgeous art design, a subtle but stylish approach to UI) and none of their weaknesses (cake night each Friday has always been their Achilles heel) into the next generation of platforms. VooFoo Studios yet again have done a fantastic job of making their visuals really stand out from the crowd - just check these screen shots below.

For me - and I hope you'll agree once you've gone hands-on with the final game - VooFoo aren't "just" developers...

23w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements made available a video today showcasing Rogue Legacy on PlayStation which focuses on building the Roguelike RPG below!

To quote: A dread memory hangs above your head. A haunted castle stands in your way. And your family has struggled for generations in the name of redemption and fortune.

In Rogue Legacy, players embark on a harrowing quest in a retro-style Roguelike, filled with brutal challenges and hundreds of upgrades. Rogue Legacy is coming to PS3, PS4, and PS Vita, with all the dark humor and alluring secrets that made it an indie hit on PC.

We spoke with Cellar Door Games Co-founder and Game Designer Teddy Lee about how the team built this addictive RPG, and why they approached the Roguelike in a new way. See below for the full interview, and Teddy's insight into the design process.





Kenny Lee, Teddy's brother and Cellar Door co-founder, also notes:

We hope you're as excited about the release of Rogue Legacy on PlayStation as we are. Releasing a game on consoles has always been a milestone and a bit of a dream for us, and we never would have taken that step forward without your support and enthusiasm.

It means a lot...
 

Seaven Studio: Ethan: Meteor Hunter Comes to PS Vita Next Week

100°
23w ago - Seaven Studio Co-founder Olivier Penot announced today that Ethan: Meteor Hunter comes to PS Vita next week.

To quote: The first day we showed you guys Ethan: Meteor Hunter, all you asked was to get a PS Vita version.

That was a shame for the PS3 version we released back in October, and yet, you had our attention. Today we're happy to announce Ethan: Meteor Hunter will launch next week on April 15th for $9.99.

If you're a player of great taste who already bought Ethan on PS3, then you have nothing to worry about - it's cross buy, so no extra dime to spend. To catch up, we have a wonderful opportunity for PS Plus members who can claim a 20% discount, only available for one week.

So, why would you buy Ethan: Meteor Hunter on PS Vita? I'm sure you're very skilled gamers who like tough challenges, the "just one more try" kind, so you'll be very pleased with Ethan.

He's a rat who has superpowers, just like the comic books we read. He can freeze time and move objects around to get through challenging platforms and mind-bending, physics-based puzzles.

Physics based also mean that in Ethan: Meteor Hunter you can get through obstacles the way you want. Nothing is scripted.

You might think "This seems to be a perfect match for the PS Vita"...
