Video: Breakfall Unveils Starwhal: Just the Tip Flopping to PS4, PS3

50°
10w ago - Breakfall Developer and Lead Coffee Runner Jason Nuyens unveiled Starwhal: Just the Tip is flopping to PS4 and PS3 platforms today.

Below is a video of the PlayStation title in action, and to quote: It took well until adulthood to see the creation of the development superforce now known as Breakfall, but we build games on the basis of certain shared common experiences.

It was true for the whole team that games were a huge part of our everyday lives as we grew up. Games were a primary source of entertainment, but we also share the common experience of using games as a focal point for our young, proto-nerd social lives.

Whether it was as kids whispering the latest videogame tricks in the playground, or elbowing each other on a sofa during multiplayer mayhem after school, the core idea is that games have always been a great way to bring people together.





For Breakfall's latest game, [Register or Login to view links], we tapped into our love of a number of game design paradigms (because now that we're mostly grown up nerds, we like fancy words sometimes).

Ideas like elegance in mechanics, simplicity in design, hard-hitting, impactful feel, and - naturally - burrito-wrapped...
 

Video: Nidhogg on PS4: Sidescrolling Competitive Fencing Action

10w ago - Messhof LLC Co-founder Kristy Norindr posted up a video today announcing some sidescrolling competitive fencing action in Nidhogg on PS4 with details below.

To quote: Hello blogizens, we at [Register or Login to view links] are super excited to announce that [Register or Login to view links] is coming to PS4! The game has always been best played with gamepads, so we're pumped to be working with Sony on our newest release of Nidhogg.

We have the most fun playing Nidhogg in front of our TV with friends. Sharing a TV and controllers is way more comfortable than crowding around someone's desk and sharing a keyboard. Exclusive to the PS4 version, the built-in tournament mode now indicates your fencer's color on DualShock 4's light bar... how cool is that?!

When you're not hosting an awesome Nidhogg tournament at home, you can get some practice in by playing through the single-player training mode, which has a variety of AI personalities you can practice against. Of course, sometimes you want to play against a real human, so playing with your friends via PSN is going to be super sweet.





In the past few months we've been watching Twitch streamers play Nidhogg on...
 

Video: Alien Trap Games Announces Apotheon is Coming to PS4

50°
10w ago - Continuing with Sony's PS4 news flood, Alien Trap Games Designer Jesse McGibney announced today that Apotheon is coming to PlayStation 4 with a video of it in action below!

To quote: Looking back, making our upcoming action sidescroller Apotheon in the visage of ancient Greek pottery seemed like an obvious choice. Everything is already there.

The 2D perspective, the awesome narrative and setting possibilities, heroes fighting monsters and magical goat-men with no pants... All we really had to do was figure out how to make the art on those pots move around and make it into an interesting game.

That's taken the two of us almost three years now. But we're almost at the end of our long road, and we're super excited to announce our new partnership with PlayStation to help us out and bring our hard work to even more players, as Apotheon will be coming to PS4.

Here's a few things we think will make Apotheon a blast to play with DualShock 4 in hand.





The combat in Apotheon draws mainly from our collective background as multiplayer FPS gamers. We were never much for button-mashy or combo based fighters, which I think have a bit of a stranglehold on 2D action games (especially melee focused...
 

Video: Zachtronics Announces Ironclad Tactics is Coming to PS4

10w ago - Zachtronics Creative Director Zach Barth announced today that Ironclad Tactics is coming to PlayStation 4 with a PS4 video below.

To quote: One of the problems with making a game about the American Civil War is that it's fairly boring, at least compared to other video game themes. However, I believe that we have solved that problem, through the addition of massive, steam-powered automatons designed for a single purpose: WAR!

Ironclad Tactics is a fast-paced, card-based tactics game set in the American Civil War... with robots! Although it's reminiscent of the tactics games and collectible card games that we're all familiar with, we've done a few things that make the game stand out:

• When it comes to games, I am not a patient person. One of my biggest frustrations with card and tactics games is waiting for my opponent to take their turn, especially when they're an AI. In Ironclad Tactics, this is not a problem, as the entire game is streamlined for 10-second, fixed-length turns taken by all players simultaneously, blending the best of turn-based and real-time gameplay.

• You can call me old fashioned, but one thing I don't understand are digital card games that require you to purchase individual cards. They're just ones and zeroes! They don't exist! In Ironclad...
 

Video: MagicalTimeBean Announces Escape Goat 2 is Coming to PS4

10w ago - MagicalTimeBean Developer Ian Stocker announced that Escape Goat 2 is coming to PS4 complete with a video trailer below!

To quote: I'm glad I didn't go with my original opening paragraph for this post. It just enumerated the reasons Escape Goat 2 sets itself apart from other puzzle platformers out there. I've shown the game to so many people that the shtick is burned in my mind. And ultimately, it's impossible to describe, because the fun of Escape Goat is intangible.

Danielle Riendeau from [Register or Login to view links] put it in the most flattering terms: "Escape Goat 2 made me feel brilliant."

Could an indie really ask for a better pull quote?

I will mention (with only the slightest bit of ego) that this is the first ever "Double Fine Presents" game. Though the myth of how "Tim Schafer's Escape Goat 2 came to be published by Double Fine on PC last March has reached the ends of the internet, I can take this opportunity to tell you the Real Story.

In early 2014, the goat's final development days were spent just down the hall from Double Fine Productions, who were thinking about getting into the publishing business (just don't call them a publisher).
