Sony Announces Spelunky Lands on PS3 and PS Vita via PSN Today

50°
47w ago - Today Derek Yu at Mossmouth announced on Sony's blog that Spelunky lands on both PS3 and PS Vita via PSN with details below.

To quote: Spelunky is arriving on PlayStation Store today for PS Vita and PS3. As part of PS Vita Summer Select, PS Plus members will receive 20% off through September 2nd! Yay!

This is Spelunky's PlayStation debut as well as its handheld debut. It also happens to be the first game I've ever released on a handheld, which is personally very exciting, as portable gaming has been such a big part of my life. And I can't think of a better game or system to do this with!

Spelunky has two qualities that make it a great portable experience, in my opinion. On the one hand, it's very much a classic arcade game - challenging, but short.

It may take you a thousand tries to finally beat it, but each run will last under an hour (some only a few seconds!). On the other hand, Spelunky also borrows a lot from roguelikes, like the randomization, freedom of choice, and numerous, surprising possibilities.

The result, I hope, is a game that you will play for years and years on your Vita: on your bed, on the train, and abroad (maybe even in a real cave somewhere?).

Ms Germinator Launches on PSN Today with 20% PS Plus Savings

50°
49w ago - Creat Studios Boston VP of Product Development Jason Benham announced that Ms Germinator launches on PSN today with 20% PS Plus savings.

To quote: A lot of classic games had an unintended 'game over' screen where a certain level didn't quite fit into the game logic or memory. These levels have a name: kill screen.

Well, with the release of our new action puzzler Ms. Germinator, we ran into the very same problem: our very first 'Challenge Level' is actually a kill-screen and half the layout is totally glitched. Can you solve the riddle of the kill-screen?

Eagle-eyed observers will already have noticed that the left side resembles a level from the game that heralded the arrival of a certain famous Italian plumber, while the right side is the garbled mess you may expect on the Ms. Pacman kill screen. But, all is not lost - using expert precision and tactics, you can still navigate and conquer this particular kill screen, and you won't even have to be called Billy Mitchell to do it!

Seriously though folks, this is pretty big - we're going to regularly release new Challenge levels and run competitions too! For this first one, the highest score on the ranking board for the Challenge level at end-of-day GMT on Tuesday 20th August will receive a prize of three Creat...

Video: DuckTales: Remastered PSN Hits PlayStation Network Today

49w ago - Capcom Producer Rey Jimenez confirmed that DuckTales: Remastered PSN hits PlayStation Network today with a trailer video below.

To quote: I've been working with the team at WayForward Technologies to bring you guys DuckTales: Remastered, launching today for PS3 as part of PlayStation Store PLAY.

At the start of development, the main goal of the project revolved around updating the game while keeping the gameplay true to the original NES game.

As the game progressed in development, we found that all of the new content really started to bring the original cartoon to life as well.

For those that may not know, the original DuckTales is firmly seated in the pantheon of the greatest NES games of all time. Widely praised for its tight controls, addicting platforming, and some of the best 8-bit music known to humanity, DuckTales stood apart as a fantastic licensed game.

When creating DuckTales: Remastered, the very first step was to make sure the game felt right, meaning it played just like the NES version. To do this, early versions were tuned so that you could play the original NES version of the game and our new version at the same time with one controller. So for your pure platform gamers, you're going to find that this game just feels right.
