XGen Studios Confirms Super Motherload is Out Today on PS4

50°
41w ago - XGen Studios CEO and Founder Skye Boyes confirmed that Super Motherload PS4 is officially out today on PlayStation 4.

To quote: With the launch of Super Motherload and PS4 today, we count ourselves lucky to be among the small number of indie games available at launch, helping to make good on Sony's promise to support innovation from small teams.

What we don't push in polygons, we hope to make up in truly social gameplay experiences that keep drawing you back. For the next puzzle, the next Special Upgrade, and of course your next grudge-match against pals.

One unique PS4 feature we didn't have space to mention in our last post is Super Motherload's use of the Activity Feed. As certain events unfold in Super Motherload, such as the untimely and permanent death of your hard-won upgraded character at the hands of fuel depletion in Hardcore mode, the activity feed will broadcast notification of your controller-hurtling rage to your friends on PSN. Other, more celebratory activity feed posts include the acquisition of Special Abilities and Character Unlocks.

There has also been quite a bit of interest in the soundtrack for Super Motherload since our last post. We're pleased to announce that we've decided to stream the entire soundtrack on YouTube for free (with digital download...
 

Video: Magrunner: Dark Pulse is Out Today on PlayStation 3

44w ago - Frogwares Olga Ryzhko shared a video today announcing that Magrunner: Dark Pulse is out today on PlayStation 3 with details below.

To quote: Magrunner: Dark Pulse is out today on PS3! At Frogwares, we consider ourselves to be quite experienced in puzzles and riddles; mainly due to 13 years of experience making Sherlock Holmes games. Some of you may have even played our latest one, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes on PS3.

However, we wanted to work on something that would expand on the games and puzzles we normally offer. We wanted to go further and explore some really dynamic puzzles, which is not really possible with the Sherlock Holmes games. Sherlock is quite the gentleman - he doesn't even run! And this is where Magrunner, a first-person puzzler, comes in.





Magrunner is based on reasoning, logic, and thinking. You'll be shooting things - you won't be gunning down nameless hordes of enemies, soldiers or zombies, but this is where the action part of the game pops in. This is our attempt to find the delicate balance between fun and challenge, between thinking and reacting.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse is an action-driven puzzle game that combines cosmic horror with a near-future cyberpunk world on the edge...
 

Magrunner: Dark Pulse on PS3 is a Lovecraftian Cyberpunk Puzzler

50°
45w ago - Frogwares' Olga Ryzhko shared new information today on Magrunner: Dark Pulse on PS3, which is a Lovecraftian Cyberpunk Puzzler he proclaims.

To quote: Magrunner: Dark Pulse is a first-person action puzzle game set in a cyberpunk reimagining of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.

The year is now 2048. A handful of young and brilliant citizens have been chosen by Gruckezber Corporation to join the Magtech training program for space exploration. Equipped with a special glove using Gruckezber's technology, the candidates must solve their way through a huge maze of challenge rooms by magnetically charging objects that attract or repel each other.

But when an earthquake disrupts the training program, what seemed to be the chance of a lifetime for the candidates becomes a descent into folly and cosmic horror.





Magrunner's game mechanics focus on magnetic polarity and manipulating it to solve environmental puzzles. There's immense potential for experimentation, especially given the world's variety of triggers, effects, machines, and objects.

You play as Dax Ward, who has been selected to participate in the Magtech training program. Using your Magtech glove, you can power other Magtech objects with...
 

Video: Transistor on PS4 and the Secrets of the DualShock 4

50°
47w ago - Supergiant Games Creative Director Greg Kasavin shared a video spotlighting Transistor on PS4 showcasing some secrets of the DualShock 4 controller on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: While being part of a small independent studio like Supergiant has its share of challenges, it's got a lot of advantages going for it, too.

For instance, one of the ironic differences I've experienced going from a very big game studio to a very small one is that things can often move a lot faster when there aren't too many people around to say "no."

This simple fact is core to our creative process at Supergiant. We like quickly coming up with, and trying, new ideas all through development. If you can loop through that kind of process quickly enough, it can start to produce great results, while the many inevitable failed experiments are easy to move on from, having taught you something.

Let me tell you about one unexpected example from recent months, involving a little trick we decided to try on a whim with the DualShock 4, when we first got our hands on it.

The story of our game, Transistor, revolves around this woman called Red, who winds up with an extraordinary weapon that, among its mysteries, is able to speak to her. When we tested early versions of the game on our...
 

Videos: New Driveclub PS4 1080p Footage on PlayStation 4 Arrives

400°
51w ago - Evolution Studios Community Development Manager Jamie Brayshaw is here with some fresh PS4 videos for the weekend showcasing Driveclub 1080p footage on PlayStation 4 below!

To quote: Thanks to everyone that played the DRIVECLUB demo at Gamescom! There were some blindingly quick racers, and even though my team weren't the fastest overall, we earned the most fame points to win the challenge.

So that means that the Gamescom trailer plays out with "Like A Boss" winning, which I'm obviously very happy about! Also, in case you were wondering, the music track is Be Here Now by Hybrid (The Qemists remix).

The reaction we got at the show was fantastic, with over a thousand people trying the demo each day. I spoke to a lot of people playing the game and the key thing that stood out and really connected with people was the concept of "always having something to play for" and "always contributing to the success of your club."





The fastest racers loved that they could aim for first place on the leaderboard and still play over and above that to beat every challenge in every event.





Everyone else enjoyed being able to focus...
