74w ago - Playerthree Creative Director David Streek has introduced Chronovolt: a Steampunk Platformer for PS Vita today with a video trailer below!

To quote: Hi everyone. David from Playerthree here, to tell you about Chronovolt - our new PS Vita game debuting on the PlayStation Plus service next week.

Our aim with Chronovolt was to bring a challenging platform adventure to PS Vita, whilst making use of its unique touch interfaces and gyroscopic controls.

From the start, we had a steampunk theme in our heads that could allow us to create worlds and characters with strange machines and futuristic sources of energy. HG Wells' classic sci-fi novel, The Time Machine, was a definite source of inspiration.

A time manipulation concept not only allowed us to jump between very different settings, but was also a perfect fit for the Vita's touch controls, allowing players to manipulate time with their fingers.





On a technical level, we'd also been developing a 'rolling ball' engine to exploit the gyroscopic controls. It seemed a lot more fun than driving Wells' 'time sled' around and, besides, the Daleks had the whole coaster-based-time-travel area...

Insomniac Games Lights the Fuse, Formerly Known as Overstrike

50°
83w ago - Insomniac Games Creative Director Brian Allgeier has announced today that they are lighting the Fuse, a title that was formerly known as Overstrike.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone! After a long journey navigating the sometimes-challenging waters of new IP development, we're proud to reveal Fuse.

Fuse, formerly known as Overstrike, is a third person, four-player cooperative game that centers around a volatile energy source that has fallen into the wrong hands.

The substance, called Fuse, has been acquired by a terrorist organization known as Raven and Overstrike 9 has been hired to track down and stop it from setting off a deadly arms race.

You can play with up to three of your friends, and each member of Overstrike 9 has its own signature Fuse-powered weapon. Play as Dalton Brooks, an ex-mercenary who has a Mag-shield that acts as portable cover and unleashes a devastating blast that liquefies opponents.

Take on the role of Naya Deveraux, who can cloak to flank enemies and fire out mini-black holes that implode its victims. As Jacob Kimble, you can keep enemies at a distance with the Arc Shot and shoot out charged bolts that chain react and fry enemies.

Then there's Izzy Sinclair, who can either launch out med beacons to heal teammates...

Video: Metroplex PS3 Trailer for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

93w ago - Today Senior Creative Director Dave Cravens at High Moon Studios has unveiled an exclusive new Metroplex PS3 trailer video for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron below.

To quote: Last time we were here, Tieg (a.k.a. Matt Tieger, Game Director) talked about the epic scale of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, embodied in our riveting story, variety of gameplay, monster bots, and the walking city known as Metroplex.

In this exclusive new trailer, you'll get to see Metroplex in action!

This is a treat for me personally, as I was a big Metroplex fan growing up. I recently visited my parents and even found my original Metroplex toy, which sadly looked like it had endured too many (mostly) imaginary battles, Minnesota winters and stress tests with fireworks.

Luckily, in Fall of Cybertron, the yellowing of aging plastic never comes into play. Instead, I get to control Metroplex through Optimus Prime, and make him do all the crazy stuff I used to imagine - like blowing away entire squadrons of Decepticons with an endless stream of rockets!





Toppling skyscrapers onto unsuspecting enemies (my sister's dolls)! Stomping on tanks and bad guys!

Let's...
