Video: RPG Platformer Chasm is Coming to PlayStation 4 This Year

12w ago - Discord Games Inc Founder James Petruzzi announced that RPG Platformer Chasm is coming to PlayStation 4 this year.

To quote: Hello, PlayStation fans! My name is James Petruzzi, and I'm the Producer of [Register or Login to view links], a procedurally-generated RPG Platformer coming to PS4 later this year.

In Chasm, players take up the role of Daltyn, a young soldier sent to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a mining crew in the remote mountain town of Karthas. Upon arrival you learn the town has been cut off from the outside world by supernatural forces.

Now trapped, you are left with no option but to explore the mines below the town and uncover the source of the disturbances. Only by gaining new special abilities, evading dangerous traps, and defeating hordes of deadly enemies can you hope to save Karthas - and possibly the world!

One of the hardest parts of game design is creating a unique and interesting world for players to explore. The Metroidvania genre has always been popular among exploration fans, and utilizes unlockable items or abilities that help the player reach previously inaccessible areas.

The goal of our latest game is to make an authentic Metroidvania-style experience that utilizes procedural generation to keep the experience...
 

Video: 17-BIT Announces Skulls of the Shogun is Rolling Onto PS4

50°
12w ago - Senior Producer Raj Joshi at 17-BIT shared a video today announcing that Skulls of the Shogun is rolling onto PS4.

To quote: It's been a long road for us at 17-BIT getting Skulls of the Shogun out the door - and we hope you're ready for what's set to be the ultimate version of the fast-paced, turn-based strategy game: The Bone-a-Fide Edition, finally coming to PlayStation 4!

Skulls of the Shogun is a mash-up of turn-based strategy and fighting-game flare, scientifically engineered for lightning-quick rounds, thoughtful strategic play, and a frequently inappropriate sense of humor with its tongue planted firmly in cheek.

And whether you're into single or multiplayer, Skulls has you covered.

You play General Akamoto, Japan's greatest shogun, who's been stabbed in the back on the eve of his greatest battle - and transported to the Samurai Afterlife. But an impostor has taken your place, and it's up to you to shatter his plans and regain your honor as Shogun - of the Dead!

As you play through a beefy 10-hour single-player campaign, you'll build up your undead army, assembling infantry, archers, and scouts, along with a magical menagerie of animal monks.

You'll haunt rice fields, build units, and power up your troops by feasting on the skulls of your...

12w ago - Celsius Game Studios Founder Colin Walsh announced today alongside a video that Drifter is coming to PS4 and PS Vita platforms with details below.

To quote: While growing up I was always fascinated by space exploration and I was especially fond of the many video games set in space such as Frontier, Starflight, and Privateer.

In fact, it's long been a dream of mine to take all of what I enjoyed about those sorts of games and try and create my own game in the genre. [Register or Login to view links] is that game, and now I'm happy to say that another dream of mine is being fulfilled now that Drifter is coming to PS4 and PS Vita.

A Massive Galaxy To Explore

Drifter is an open-world, sandbox, space trading game with a procedurally-generated galaxy 100,000 light years across, made up of tens of thousands of star systems to explore and features an original soundtrack by composer Danny Baranowsky.

In the game you take on the role of a spaceship captain attempting to eke out a living among the stars by trading goods between star systems, hunting pirates for bounties, mining asteroids for valuable ore, or even becoming a pirate yourself.

Video: Jamestown Plus is Coming to PlayStation 4 This Summer

50°
12w ago - Final Form Games Co-Founder Mike Primo confirmed that Jamestown Plus is coming to PlayStation 4 this Summer with a fresh video trailer below.

To quote: After playing a round of Jamestown, it's probably not surprising to hear that Final Form Games is run by two brothers who grew up playing video games in the early 90's.

We spent our Summers plugging quarters into Street Fighter II in the arcades, and our Saturday mornings sitting on the couch, playing games together.

But as fond as those memories may be, many of the games that featured the word "co-op" on the box (or arcade cabinet) during that era were a real let-down for us.

Simultaneous play is not necessarily cooperative, and co-op has come a long way since arcade ruled the Earth. We're living in a post-Left 4 Dead, post-Rock Band world, and sometime in 2009, we decided to stop waiting for someone else to apply a few of the many design innovations of the past twenty years to the humble shoot-em-up genre.





To wit:

• For us, co-op was about pulling each other's fat out of the fire when all seemed lost, and celebrating the heartbreaking almost-made-it defeats just as much as the skin-of-our-teeth victories. A great...
 

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

12w 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...
