2w ago - Co-creator Richard Hogg announced today that Hohokum is coming to PlayStation 4 (PS4), PS3 and PS Vita in 2014 with details below.
To quote: It is with great pleasure that we are able to announce Hohokum as a Sony Santa Monica project, coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita in 2014!
Hohokum is a collaboration between artist Richard Hogg and Honeyslug, a London-based game studio. It is a whimsical colorful game with an emphasis on playful exploration and creativity. You take on the role of a curious flying snake-like character.
A technicolor, calligraphic, worm-like, kite-like being! The way you move around the world is very expressive and kinetic and kind of mesmerizing to play.
One of the main aims for Hohokum is to create something where the usual pressures of videogames - constantly being told to do things, fearing failure and being challenged to earn progress - were all absent.
This is quite a challenge, but we're really excited about how it's coming together. There are goals and secrets to discover. There are even Trophies. But at its heart Hohokum is a playground, a place to wander about, perhaps even lose yourself in.
It is kind of awesome to be able to finally say that. We have been working away on the game for the last year, maintaining...
2w ago - Dynamighty Lead Designer David Nottingham announced today that CounterSpy is sneaking to PS3 and PS Vita with details below.
To quote: Hello, compadres! I'm one of the co-founders of Dynamighty, a small independent studio situated in lovely San Francisco, CA.
We're a 10 person team of passionate game makers, founded by myself and my buddy John, who previously worked together at LucasArts, with the core team rounded out by the two Marks. 'Business' Mark and Mark Holmes, who before us was at Pixar for 16 years.
When Sony asked us to write a quick post to tell you a bit about our game, we met the request with a mix of excitement ("YES! We get to start talking about our game!") and terror ("Holy [REDACTED]! Now we've got to actually deliver...").
Truthfully, we are super excited to finally be able to start talking about our labor of love, our very first game: CounterSpy (working title), an action side-scrolling game being developed for PlayStation 3, PS Vita, and mobile platforms.
As an elite member of C.O.U.N.T.E.R., your goal is to infiltrate, sabotage, and strike at the heart of two opposing Super Powers embroiled in a frenetic Arms Race that threatens the existence of humanity.
2w ago - HumaNature Studios Founder Greg Johnson announced today that Doki-Doki Universe is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita!
Below are the details, to quote: My name is Greg Johnson, and I've been making games longer than I'd like to admit (ever heard of Toejam and Earl? If you've heard of my first game, Starflight, you're older than you probably want to admit).
We at HumaNature (that's Human Nature... not Huma Nature by the way) are a pretty small group, as far as game development groups go these days.
Our (admittedly lofty) goal is to create new and original game experiences that reach out to people looking for more humanity in games. We love interactive stories, emotional expression, and self-discovery - we're not so big on shooting things.
Here at HNS we are hard at work building a game for PlayStation, who, thankfully, seems to like a lot of the same lofty things we do. Our game is called Doki-Doki Universe. It's tough to describe Doki-Doki, because it's actually a set of related products that will be released at the same time.
Players' first exposure to Doki-Doki will be in the form of a free download for their PS Vita, PS3 or PS4. This is a light version of the game where players can fly around a Universe and take fun personality quizzes.
3w ago - Ripstone Creative Director Phil Gaskell announced today that Men's Room Mayhem is coming to PS Vita with details below.
To quote: My name is Phil Gaskell, I've worked on games such as Super Stardust HD, and Dead Nation. These days I run an indie publisher called Ripstone.
We helped teams like Voofoo Studios launch Pure Chess last year, and more recently Big Sky Infinity and Knytt Underground. We love indies and we love PS Vita, and I can't wait to share with you some of the awesome shizzle we're working on this year!
Today though I'm very proud to announce a game we made together with Sawfly Studios, a team of talented guys who are ex-Studio Liverpool.
The game is called Men's Room Mayhem, and as you can probably guess from the title it takes toilet gaming to a whole new level! If I had to sum it up in a single sentence I'd say it's like Flight Control meets Carry On At Your Convenience!
In Men's Room Mayhem you're hired as the janitor of your very own chaotic men's room. You're responsible for directing patrons, keeping everywhere sparkling clean and steering patrons away from trouble!
You need to get your customers safely to the urinals and cubicles in time - otherwise there'll be a few nasty accidents for you to clean up! Avoid...
