To quote: Here is an updated build of The Unmapped Forest. At the moment it is still using placeholder graphics.

What has changed:

  • I've fixed the problem that caused it to freeze at a black screen when running at certain resolutions.
  • You have health and can be hurt.
  • You can now kill monsters.
  • You gain experience for killing monsters and you can level up infinitely (there is no level cap).
  • When you level up your maximum health is increased and you are fully healed.
  • When a monster (or its corpse) and its spawn point are both out of view then the monster is given full health and returned to its spawn point to wait for you to approach.
  • There are now five types of monsters.
  • The world has been expanded upon....

 

Video: Remastering God of War: Origins Collection for PS3

200°
152w ago - Ready At Dawn Studios Art Director Nathan Phail-Liff has shared some video footage today on the remastering God of War: Origins Collection for the PS3 entertainment system.

Re-mastering both of the God of War PSP games in full HD for the PS3 God of War: Origins Collection definitely had its share of challenges for us.

The first goal we had was simply the daunting task of up-rezing the engine and content authored on a PSP running at 480 x 272 resolution and 30 frames per second to 1920 x 1080p at a steady 60 fps on the PS3.

This required a custom PS3 version of our engine, coded in-house exclusively for the Origins Collection, as well as a painstaking process by art team. We ended up going through every single character in the game and doubling or tripling polygon count by hand, as well as up-rezing and re-painting every texture across both games at 4x resolution on both characters and environments.





Being gluttons for punishment, we also decided from the beginning of the project that just re-mastering content from PSP resolution to 1080p wasn't necessarily challenging enough (as a quick aside...we were wrong), so we also wanted to take advantage of our custom PS3 engine and try to implement full stereoscopic 3D support.

152w ago - Quite some time ago we reported that Korean company LG wanted Sony's PlayStation 3 and Bravia televisions banned in the US for patent infringements relating to Blu-ray playback.

Today Reuters (linked above) reports that both Sony and LG have finally settled their bitter Blu-ray patent dispute through a cross-licensing deal.

To quote: "LG Electronics and Sony said on Thursday that they have resolved patent disputes between the two firms spanning smartphones, TVs and Blu-ray technology, with LG adding that they have signed a cross-licensing deal.

LG and Sony recently agreed to drop patent infringement lawsuits against each other," a spokeswoman at South Korea's LG Electronics said. Sony confirmed this, but declined to comment further.

Sony had filed a complaint against LG with the U.S. International Trade Commission, seeking to block LG from shipping its Rumor Touch and several other smartphones to the United States.

LG also told the...

Video: Retro / Grade at PAX 2011 and PSN Gameplay Trailer

100°
152w ago - 24 Caret Games Co-founder Matt Gilgenbach has shared some Retro / Grade PAX 2011 details alongside a PSN gameplay trailer today.

To quote: We've been hard at work making a must-have PS3 downloadable game for PSN.

If you're like me and you can barely remember your own name, let me refresh your memory about [Register or Login to view links].

Retro/Grade is an innovative fusion between a rhythm game and a sidescrolling shooter that has received the IndieCade audience award as well as two Independent Game Festival nominations.

The game begins when you have just singlehandedly fended off an alien invasion, but all the destruction damaged the space/time continuum, which caused the flow of time itself to reverse. What would have been the final boss is actually the beginning of your backwards journey.





Since time is going in reverse, you must undo your actions in the space skirmish to protect the health of the space time continuum. This means you have to dodge enemy projectiles returning to the enemies that fired them while un-firing your projectiles as they return to your ship. It is easier than it sounds since everything is timed to the beat of the original retro game inspired soundtrack.
