Video: MagicalTimeBean Announces Escape Goat 2 is Coming to PS4

50°
13w ago - MagicalTimeBean Developer Ian Stocker announced that Escape Goat 2 is coming to PS4 complete with a video trailer below!

To quote: I'm glad I didn't go with my original opening paragraph for this post. It just enumerated the reasons Escape Goat 2 sets itself apart from other puzzle platformers out there. I've shown the game to so many people that the shtick is burned in my mind. And ultimately, it's impossible to describe, because the fun of Escape Goat is intangible.

Danielle Riendeau from [Register or Login to view links] put it in the most flattering terms: "Escape Goat 2 made me feel brilliant."

Could an indie really ask for a better pull quote?

I will mention (with only the slightest bit of ego) that this is the first ever "Double Fine Presents" game. Though the myth of how "Tim Schafer's Escape Goat 2 came to be published by Double Fine on PC last March has reached the ends of the internet, I can take this opportunity to tell you the Real Story.

In early 2014, the goat's final development days were spent just down the hall from Double Fine Productions, who were thinking about getting into the publishing business (just don't call them a publisher).

13w ago - Thomas Happ Games LLC Programmer, Artist, Designer and Composer Tom Happ announced that Sci-fi sidescroller Axiom Verge is coming to PS4 and PS Vita today with a video trailer below!

To quote: I'm Tom Happ, the sole programmer-artist-designer-composer person behind [Register or Login to view links], a 2D side-scrolling action-adventure coming out on PS4 and PS Vita in early 2015.

If you've not heard of Axiom Verge (or even if you have), the best thing to do is to put on your best pair of headphones and watch the trailer below:

So, What's This About Glitches?

People usually try to describe games in terms of other games, established genres, numbers of items to find, numbers of modes to play, etc. And if it's an indie game, there is often a mind-bending new mechanic involved ("Can only be played during a tracheotomy!") as well. I'll give you these bullet points in just a bit.

But first: Think of your earliest encounters with video games - before you had any preconceptions of what to expect, how they were made, or why they were made that way. Didn't they just seem magically limitless? It might be that a game only had a set number of areas and tight constraints on what you could do, but for all you knew, the world continued past the edges of...
 

Videos: SHAREfactory: Sony Demos PlayStation 4's New Video Editor

50°
13w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill shared some PS4 video footage today demonstrating the PlayStation 4's new video editor below!

To quote: SHAREfactory is now available on PlayStation 4, alongside PS4 System Software Update v1.70.

A dead-simple rich video editor, SHAREfactory lets players capture gameplay clips (a process that's been streamlined as part of the v1.70 update) and add transitions, music, commentary, and more to turn their raw footage into full-fledged videos.

The PlayStation.Blog team - with painfully little knowledge of video editing - ventured blindly into this new app to see what we could come up with... and we think the results are pretty admirable given our lack of expertise! As it turns out, SHAREfactory is deceptively full featured, despite its instant accessibility.

Watch our videos below, then tell us whose is best. The editor who gets the most votes will forever bear the title of SCEA SHAREfactory Champion, and all privileges associated with it (I'm getting a belt made). Of course, we want to hear your arguments for each of our entries in the comments, as well.

First, I put together a tips guide for inFAMOUS...
 

Frima Studio Announces Chariot PS4 is Coming to PlayStation 4

13w ago - Frima Studio Executive Producer Martin Brouard announced today that Chariot PS4 is coming to the PlayStation 4 video gaming console!

To quote: I'm thrilled to have this opportunity to finally share some info about our new PS4 game with the PlayStation community. Our small team has been working on Chariot for a while now, and I can't wait to see what you guys think of it.

Chariot is a 2D, couch co-op adventure platformer in which two players must work together to guide a chariot through underground levels using physics-based mechanics such as pushing, pulling, riding, reeling, and so on. But don't worry; even though the game is designed for multiplayer shenanigans, it's also super fun to play solo.

Philippe Dion, Chariot's creative lead, came to me a while back with this very original idea for a physics-based couch-co-op platformer designed around exploring caves with a vehicle. Everyone here was instantly charmed by the initial prototype. Even though it was entirely done with stick figures, we knew we were on to something when we watched people playing together, arguing and teasing each other, and really having a great time goofing around.

Getting from that stickman prototype to the next-gen platformer that is now Chariot was quite a ride. Ride, get it?
