Image & Form Games: SteamWorld Dig Coming to PS4, PS Vita in 2014

50°
33w ago - Image & Form Games CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson announced today that SteamWorld Dig is coming to PS4 and PS Vita in 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone, thrilled to be here - finally! I'm Brjann Sigurgeirsson, the worst-named CEO of the worst-named game development studio in the world, Image & Form Games.

I'm here to present perhaps the world's worst-named game: SteamWorld Dig. It launches on PS4 and PS Vita this year. Don't let the title fool you - the game is great!

Image & Form is a Swedish game developer based in rainy, windy Gothenburg. There's a dozen of us, and the rest of the lot is a bunch of brilliant, hard-working, and quite childish people.

I also work hard and am rather childish myself, but instead of being brilliant all the time I focus on hogging credit and interacting with you guys. You can read more about all of us right here.

Take the role of Rusty - a lone, mining steambot - as he arrives to an old mining town in great need. Dig your way through the old earth, gaining riches while uncovering the ancient threat that lurks below.

SteamWorld Dig is what we call "a mining platform adventure." The objective is mining, the controls are those of a platformer, and it's a story-driven game with a defined beginning and end....

I've been developing games since 2004, which have appeared on older mobile platforms like J2ME, as well as newer ones like Android and iOS. That said, it's likely you don't know Orangepixel... yet!

With the help of the guys at [Register or Login to view links], I hope to change that and make my games more known to new audiences, starting with PlayStation gamers. So, Gunslugs will be the first of the Orangepixel titles to hopefully land a spot on your PS Vita this month!

As I mentioned above, I've been creating games since 2004, and all the Orangepixel games have a few key elements in common:

First, they feel, look and sound "retro." This is a very commonly used term these days, but don't judge the games because they looks retro - I also try to imbue my games with newer tricks, gameplay concepts and even some triple-A ideas, bringing old-school style games to a more modern audience.

The final element that all Orangepixel games share, is that they are hard. Not brutal, and...

400°
36w ago - Following up on the previous PS Vita Dual Firmware Boot PoC demo, today Sony PlayStation Vita hacker [Register or Login to view links] has made available details on dumping games from PS Vita cartridges.

Below are the details, as follows: Dumping games from PS Vita Cartridges is now possible! - The beginning of piracy?

After Yifan Lu’s great hardware reports about the PS Vita, its motherboard and its nand, our user Katsu found a way for dual booting the PS Vita, which can kind of be seen as a downgrade solution.

But that is not everything that he was able to do. Katsu is on fire and also looked at the Vita cartridges... see below for some more electronics joy!

PS Vita Cartridge dumps now Possible - Does this enable piracy?

Katsu seems to be able to dump a PS Vita cartridge - you know, those tiny physical modules that contain PS Vita games, a cartridge, like we know them from the Nintendo DS and 3DS - and is therefore able to retrieve the games in the format how they...
