Video: How Multiplayer Works in Frozen Synapse Prime on PS Vita

50°
2w ago - Double 11 Design Manager Gareth Wright shared a video today detailing how multiplayer works in Frozen Synapse Prime on PS Vita below.

To quote: Hey Folks, We're getting very close to the release of [Register or Login to view links], and I wanted to go over what is really the biggest aspect of the game - the online multiplayer.

Online multiplayer in Prime is both synchronous and asynchronous, as the game is hosted off Double Eleven's set of dedicated Amazon cloud servers.

In other words, two players can either play against each other at the same time when they both have a PS Vita in hand, or they can play it like chess by post, where turns can be taken minutes to days at a time. So you could quick-match against an online opponent now, or take a weekly turn against your friend if you're not able to meet at the same time to play.





The asynchronous multiplayer aspect allows you to have several games on the go at once, against friends and opponents around the world. The game alerts you when a turn has been made in one of your matches, and players can track and manage their matches via their...

2w ago - Ovosonico Studios Founder Massimo Guarini shared a PS Vita launch video announcing that Murasaki Baby is out today exclusively on PlayStation Vita.

Below are the details, to quote: Hey everybody, it's Massimo Guarini here from Ovosonico! To celebrate the launch of [Register or Login to view links] today, I'm bringing you another developer diary.

It's a behind-the-scenes look at the development of Murasaki Baby, which is out now exclusively for PS Vita for $14.99. PS Plus members can pick it up for 20% off / $11.99 during the first week only!





During development, our main focus has been on the interaction with Baby, wanted to make her feel alive to the player so that they could form an emotional bond with her and want to protect her from harm. The simple act of leading her by the hand is one of the areas we spent most development time on, with our focus on making it as believable and lifelike as possible.

We all are passionate about bringing craftsmanship to making games and not just relying on technology. The game has a strong hand drawn style, but this isn't just an effect, almost everything...

Feel the Beat in Jungle Rumble, Swinging Soon to PlayStation Vita

50°
3w ago - Disco Pixel's Trevor Stricker invites PS Vita fans to feel the beat today in Jungle Rumble, which will be swinging soon to PlayStation Vita.

To quote: We are stoked to announce that our rhythm game sensation, Jungle Rumble: Freedom, Happiness, and Bananas is coming to PS Vita very soon! We are adding more monkeys, more beats, and more bedlam. This is bananas!

What's Jungle Rumble? The player drums to control a tribe of monkeys. A rival tribe invades to steal bananas. The player sends monkey minions into the fray by drumming on the screen. It's the world's craziest rhythm game.

Using the PS Vita's touch screen to tap along to the beat of the jungle, players drum on monkeys and then drum on trees to have their simian soldiers swing through the trees. Drum on coconuts and then drum on enemies to throw those coconuts with rhythmic flair.

The player jaunts through the jungle with a rhythmic grammar. Unlike a traditional rhythm game there is no script to follow-in Jungle Rumble drumming controls the game.

As the game evolves, the questions pile up. Why would that tribe invade and shatter the peace in the jungle? What would cause them to risk war?

Jungle Rumble features a dynamic soundtrack - as more and more monkeys team up, the music swells with intensity....
 

Video: Frozen Synapse Prime: Combat Basics on PlayStation Vita

50°
3w ago - Double Eleven's Mark South shared a video today detailing the combat basics in Frozen Synapse Prime on PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: Hey folks. To better help you understand what Frozen Synapse Prime is all about, we've created a video that runs through the basics of combat.

Here's a quick look at how the simultaneous-turn-based combat system works in Prime:

1.) Players on two separate teams plot paths and issue orders to their squad members, creating a plan on a turn-by-turn basis. You have the option of simulating the plan before you commit to it.

2.) Both teams then commit their plans for each turn; we call this "Priming" a turn.

3.) Once both players have primed their turns the outcome of both teams' plans is played out and the resulting combat ensues.





Once you wrap your head around that, you'll need to try and predict your opponent's strategies, wipe them out, or complete a set of match objectives – depending on the match type. Reading the environment and working with the strengths and positioning of your squad is key to victory.

You will learn and develop your own strategies. The mind games between players, and inspiring players to anticipate and deceive...
