Daylight on PS4: Designing the Hero, Protagonist Sarah Gwynn

50°
33w ago - Daylight Writer Jessica Chobot shared details today on designing the hero, protagonist Sarah Gwynn, in Daylight on PS4.

To quote: With the Daylight launch just around the corner, I wanted to give PlayStation.Blog readers a bit of background on our protagonist, Sarah Gwynn.

The reasons we chose to go with a female main character were twofold. The first reason being that because I was writing the game, she became (in a roundabout way) an extension of myself. I came up with the outline for Daylight based on some urban exploration I did in my high school days.

Specifically, a blighted little spot within my small Michigan town by the name of The Sheldon Buildings (officially known as the [Register or Login to view links] for Feeble Minded Children).

The Sheldon Buildings were a dilapidated set of buildings from the early 1900s linked together by a set of underground tunnels running throughout the grounds (they've since been torn down). A town within a town, the outer perimeter of the Training School was bricked-in by a 7+ foot tall wall.

Within the gates, the school hosted a hospital center, a gigantic, old-fashioned theater, dorms, an indoor and outdoor pool, its own police and fire stations, as well...
 

No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either is Coming Soon to PS Vita

50°
33w ago - Sony International Software Development Manager Tomoyo Kimura announced today that No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either is coming soon to PS Vita.

To quote: Hi everyone! We are happy to announce that the No Heroes Allowed series is making its return in Spring 2014 as a free-to-play hunting puzzle game for PS Vita!

This is the fifth entry in the series, and we call it No Heroes Allowed: No Puzzles Either! Just as the name suggests, the humor (and 8 bit art) that the series is known for is back and better than ever.

Who said it was easy to be a bad guy?

As a "God of Destruction," you must use your evil power of destruction to defeat more than 200 quirky looking heroes in 64 levels of match-three puzzles. As you conquer levels and capture heroes, the heroes are banished to your dungeon, where they work for you to dig up valuable items in the mines that can be used as power ups during subsequent levels.

Also, don't forget to enter the "Badman's Lair" where you can use your evil genius to combine your choice of monsters, heroes and items already found through the game to create an even more powerful army.

Look out for more details soon, and stay evil!

500°
46w ago - Following up on the previous exploits for PS Vita Firmware 2.61, today PlayStation Vita developer Yosh (aka wth) released another PSP Usermode 2.61 exploit for Half Minute Hero with details below.

Download: Half-Minute_Hero.zip (Half Minute Hero VHBL <3.00)

To quote: PSVita Official Firmware 3.00 was a major update and it has been discovered that a LOT of game exploits were patched (around 20) so many developers whose private exploits got patched are releasing them for earlier firmwares. Frostegater has already released two: Pipe Madness and Fieldrunners. This time, it’s Yosh aka wth on the /talk forums with Half Minute Hero.

In his post on the /talk forums, Yosh says: “Hey guys, with PSVita 3.00 firmware update were apparently quite several exploits (include private ones too) patched, including the private exploit of mine I’ve been using since Everybody’s Tennis was published and fixed.

Indeed Zer01ne used his Uno exploit until it got...
 

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is Coming to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita in 2014

50°
52w ago - WayForward Creative Director Matt Bozon confirmed that Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is coming to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita platforms in 2014.

To quote: Next year, [Register or Login to view links] is bringing the highly animated action adventure series [Register or Login to view links] to PS3, PS4, and PS Vita in the form of a brand new game: [Register or Login to view links]!

Since there's a good chance you're hearing about Shantae for the first time, here's a bit of background. Shantae is the name of the half-genie main character who carves through enemies with her destructive ponytail, and belly dances to transform into mythological creatures, animals, swords... and well, pretty much anything. There aren't many games that include the art of sensual dance as a main game mechanic, but Shantae pulls it off nicely.

The gameplay is best compared to Super Metroid or Castlevania Symphony of the Night, but with the visual styling of WayForward's own Ducktales: Remastered. WayForward puts its traditional feature film style animation in the front row along side rock solid gameplay, which has its roots firmly planted in the 8 and 16 bit era of classic gaming. WayForward's engine moves the...
 

Cosmic Star Heroine Coming to PS4, VVVVVV is Hitting PS Vita

50°
56w ago - Today Zeboyd Games Lead Designer Robert Boyd announced that Retro Sci-fi RPG Cosmic Star Heroine is coming to PS4 and PS Vita alongside VVVVVV to PlayStation Vita as well.

To quote: We here at the two-man development studio known as Zeboyd Games are pleased to announce that our next RPG, Cosmic Star Heroine, will be coming out on PS4 and PS Vita next year! And to go along with that announcement, here's our Sega-CD inspired opening video for our game! Enjoy!

A very special thanks to Dean Dodrill (Dust: An Elysian Tail) who helped out with effects and animation, as well as Chris Geehan and Dan Byrne-McCullough over at Hyperduck (who did the music for our last RPG) for helping make that video go to 11! And of course, our own Bill Stiernberg, who handled the brunt of the work!

Cosmic Star Heroine is our latest attempt to recapture the feel of some of the classic RPGs of the 90s, while putting our own unique spin on the whole experience. Inspired by games like Chrono Trigger (visual style, on-map battles, combo techniques), the Phantasy Star series (overall feel of the worlds and characters), and the Suikoden series (political intrigue, expandable player headquarters), we can't wait to share Cosmic Star Heroine with you!
