113w ago - Today HandCircus Founder Simon Oliver has revealed co-op adventure details alongside a video on Okabu for PlayStation Network.
To quote: With less than a week to go until OKABU launches, we're slightly over-excited about getting it into your hands!
There's still so much to talk about the game, so we wanted to delve a little deeper into the world of OKABU and the different lands that make up the adventure.
We got a slightly carried away during development, and the game ended up quite a bit bigger than we'd originally imagined. Personally I blame Shane (OKABU's level designer), who kept on suggesting awesome new ideas that we felt we really couldn't cut.
As a result the four worlds are pretty huge, so big that OKABU features a Platinum Trophy, earned through tracking down all the medals throughout the story campaign, finding the numerous secrets tucked away throughout the world, as well as besting the four minigames.
Following on from last week's post about the Heroes of OKABU, we really wanted to demonstrate how their different skills fit together, so we've got a fresh video below that shows longer sections of gameplay. It also shows how two players can work together when playing in Co-op mode.
119w ago - DeathSpank Designer Darren Evenson has announced that The Baconing officially hits PlayStation Network today alongside a video trailer.
To quote: I'm wicked excited to share some details about our new game, The Baconing, DeathSpank's greatest and most delicious adventure EVER! The game will be available to download today from PlayStation Network.
The Baconing is part of the PSN PLAY promotion so if you purchase the game before September 19th you will also receive co-op character DLC, Roesha - One Bad Mutha. Also, if you are PlayStation Plus subscriber, you can still get 20% off the full game price!
When we started developing The Baconing we didn't want gamers to feel like they HAD to play through the previous DeathSpank games before taking on The Baconing.
We decided to make this game accessible for anyone to jump straight into, ensuring that new players and returning fans alike can both equally enjoy this game. Those familiar with DeathSpank will certainly experience just as much familiar fun plus a bucket-load of improvements too.
This is, by far, the funniest DeathSpank to date. We had an absolute blast making it, and it was an unwritten rule that we needed to laugh...
120w ago - Fatshark Producer and Lead Designer Marten Stormdal has announced that today Hamilton's Great Adventure goes live on PlayStation Network and shared a video of the game's creation from idea to finished product below.
To quote: Hamilton's Great Adventure is out today on PSN and we at Fatshark have arrived to set the record straight and answer all your questions. Thank the Elder Gods!
Hamilton's Great Adventure is what we would like to call a puzzle adventure game; it features puzzle-based core mechanics in an adventurous context and setting. Hamilton has a story to tell, and the twists and turns of his story frame and permeate the gameplay, hopefully creating a complete experience for you all to partake in.
The player is tasked with guiding Ernest Hamilton and his bird companion Sasha through their tantalizing travels across the world. Locations include the jungles of South America, deserts of Egypt, mountaintops of Himalaya and a mysterious lost continent.
Hamilton's Great Adventure can be played either single player (switching between the characters) or co-op. The gameplay is based on square tiles, on which Hamilton runs around, chasing keys and treasures while avoiding traps and enemies. Sasha...
