Roll7: OlliOlli is Out Today on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3

50°
6d ago - General Dogsbody Simon Bennett at Roll7 announced that OlliOlli is officially out today on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 platforms.

Below are the details, to quote: OlliOlli almost never happened. It was only a kick under the table from Studio Director Tom Hegarty that pushed Creative Director John Ribbins into taking the prototype out of his pocket in our first meeting with PlayStation. Shahid Ahmad at Strategic Content signed the game there and then and the rest, as they say, is history.

The game has since been a runaway hit on PS Vita, topping the charts, getting a GOTM, and sitting alongside AAA monsters in top game lists for 2014.

However, in hindsight celebrations on January 21st were a little more mixed at Roll7 HQ in Deptford, London. As the team sat together on launch of the game, news of a bug was already circulating with a handful of journalists - there was a genuine worry that the bug might affect a significant user base. We kept an eye online from the moment that the game hit and thankfully it appeared that only a few small number of users were affected.

The team was due to start work on an as-of-yet unannounced project, however we never questioned getting the bug fixed at all costs. Possibly it was naivety on our part, possibly it was stupidity - but we put...

Video: Toy Soldiers: War Chest on PS4 - PlayStation 4 Hands-on

50°
6d ago - Sony Social Media Senior Manager Sid Shuman shared a PS4 video today showcasing Toy Soldiers: War Chest going hands-on with PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: If I'm frank, I wasn't really sure I was the right fit for this game. Mostly because I'd never played the earlier entries in the (well-respected) Toy Soldiers series, but also because toy collector culture doesn't much tickle my fancy.

So imagine my surprise when I went hands-on with Toy Soldiers: War Chest on PS4 and discovered not just a clever fusion of tower defense and third-person action, but a fiendishly addictive vortex that quickly reduced me to shrieking "kablammo! kablammo! boooosh!" while I bombarded hordes of rainbow ponies with mortars. Watch our new video above for the full story.

At its core, Toy Soldiers: War Chest is a classic tower defense game set in three-dimensional environments, a nice upgrade from the static 2D backdrops of most TD titles. You'll set up turrets in between waves of approaching enemies, feverishly upgrading and repairing them to prevent being overrun.

You earn gold by slaying incoming enemy hordes, then spend the proceeds on new specialized turrets (anti-armor, anti-infantry, anti-air) and fancy upgrades that increase your attack range, damage and so forth. So far, so good - it's...

Introducing Pillar: A PS4 Psychological Minigame Collection

50°
6d ago - Pillar Designer / Programmer / Musician Michael Hicks officially introduced Pillar, a PS4 psychological minigame collection to PlayStation 4 fans today!

To quote: Hey everyone! My name is [Register or Login to view links], and I'm the designer/programmer/musician for a game I'm announcing today called [Register or Login to view links].

Pillar is a collection of minigames, where each game represents a different type of personality that we find in people. For example, there are introverts who lose energy from being around people, extroverts who expand energy from interacting with others, characters who make decisions with logic, characters who make decisions with feeling and so on. My goal is to express these traits entirely through gameplay mechanics.

Pillar was born out of a confluence of ideas: the first influence I had was from [Register or Login to view links], a movie that examines multiple characters with different storylines but seamlessly weaves them all together.

I realized this is something video games can do too but I've never seen it utilized in a way that's as powerful as this film. For instance, in some games there are characters that have unique abilities, like swimming underwater or...
