Action Button: Ten by Eight Launches Today on PlayStation Mobile

50°
61w ago - Action Button Entertainment Founder and Director Tim Rogers announced that Ten by Eight launches today on PlayStation Mobile.

Below are the details, to quote: Over the last few months, we've been working on a couple of great games for PlayStation Mobile. We're launching one right the heck now, a puzzle game, called Ten By Eight.

"Puzzle game" might be putting it too generally. I like to think of it as an "abstract strategy game with really fun graphics and music". You can call it a puzzle game if you want though! I won't cry.

With Ten By Eight, we made a game that I wanted to play - and I sure have played it a lot, and I'm still not bored.

I swear I've played it over 200 hours myself - which is normal, given that I, uh, directed the darn thing, though I swear that at least 80 of those have been recreationally, on the final version of the game. So, there's, well... my stamp of approval, at least.

It's playable on all PlayStation Certified devices with simple touch controls and the PS Vita version supports buttons.

I spent a large percentage of my childhood with a Rubik's Cube in my hands - I even Rubik's Cubed while reading books - so when Tetris first came out, my brain exploded. I've played dozens of puzzle games since...
 

Video: First Look at Doki-Doki Universe in Action on PlayStation 4

68w ago - HumaNature Studios Founder Greg Johnson shared a video today that offers a first look at Doki-Doki Universe in action on the PlayStation 4 / PS4 console below.

To quote: Hi. I'm Greg, the designer of Sony's new game Doki-Doki Universe and I run a small game studio called HumaNature Studios. In years past, I created a game you may be familiar with, called ToeJam and Earl.

Announced just last month, Doki-Doki Universe is a game about humanity and emotional expression. It's sweet and quirky and hopefully a little thought provoking.

If you're interested in a change of pace, you may find it interesting. We hope so, anyway. To give you a better idea for how the game plays, we've put together this fun trailer for you:

Doki-Doki Universe is more than a game. It's a cross-platform ecosystem built around a unique universe of personal discovery. And as you can see in the trailer, the universe you explore is vibrant, fun and playful.

There are tons of different places to explore, characters to meet, objects to collect and conjure up, and there are even fun reflective quizzes to take.

However, the most important thing you should take away is that Doki-Doki Universe is about creating an emotionally engaging experience that will help you learn about yourself.
 

Video: Watch_Dogs: Behind the Scenes with 2013's PS4 Action Epic

72w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton is here with a video showcasing Watch_Dogs which goes behind the scenes with 2013's rule-breaking action epic below.

To quote: As with any jump from one console generation to the next, PlayStation 4 owners will expect to see hardware that sits at the very cutting edge of innovation, offering unparalleled processing power and an arsenal of exciting new features.

However, the onus on game developers to bring bold new gameplay innovation to the table is every bit as integral to that generational leap, and it's a responsibility that the whipsmart team behind Ubisoft's future-tech open world action title Watch_Dogs are really tearing into.

As detailed in our coverage last week, the game's core conceit - that its central hero, hacker Aiden Pearce's primary weapon is not a gun, but an entire city - is one of the boldest, most ambitious ideas to come along in some time. To find out more about the game's attempts to re-write the action rulebook, PlayStation Blog sat down with the game's creative director Jonathan Morin...

What was the first seed of the idea that later grew into Watch_Dogs?

Jonathan Morin: It started as a conversation. Four years ago we were talking about humans exchanging their lives and their...
 

Watch_Dogs for PS4 and PS3: Details on the Future-Tech Action Epic

200°
73w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared details today on Watch_Dogs for PS4 and PS3 detailing the the future-tech action epic below.

To quote: Watch_Dogs's dark vision of technological totalitarianism is heading to PS3 and PS4, and we were lucky enough to see the first live gameplay demo in San Francisco earlier this week (played on a DualShock 4, no less!). We've carefully studied the footage, asked pressing questions, and present you with this breakdown.

1. Aiden Pierce isn't your typical videogame protagonist

"Aiden is a man with a dark past who has made questionable choices," Lead Story Designer Kevin Shortt explained in our first live gameplay demo.Growing up in Chicago, Aiden used his technical prowess to infiltrate bank accounts and access surveillance systems, becoming something of a vigilante. Naturally, these pursuits earned him some powerful enemies on both sides of the law.

As you play Watch_Dogs, you won't be choosing between stark extremes on some binary morality scale, but defining where Aiden resides on much murkier spectrum of acceptability.

2. Chicago isn't your typical videogame city

We've all played open-world action games where cities feel more like a collection of giant painted boxes than a...
