5w ago - Matt Makes Games Inc Indie Game Developer Matt Thorson announced that TowerFall Ascension PS4 is out today on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Today's the day! TowerFall Ascension is finally launching on PS4. TowerFall is an archery platformer featuring intense local multiplayer battles and a dynamic solo - or co-op - Quest mode. Grab your friends and pack onto your couch for a night of close calls, surprise victories, and hilarious missteps.

The reviews began rolling in a few days ago, and I'm absolutely floored by the response. I'm not usually one to put a lot of stock in those dubious numbers emblazoned in bold at the bottom of articles, but I can't deny it feels good to see the 9.5′s.





Making TowerFall has been the most rewarding experience of my life. When I put love into the game, I see it returned to me tenfold by the TowerFall community, and it only appears to be growing.

I also had the privilege of working with some incredibly talented, capable, and pleasant people. I want to thank the entire team by name. Kevin Regamey and Jeff Tangsoc (sound design), Pedro Medeiros (pixel art), Amora Bettany (character design and concept art), Alec Holowka (music), and Kert Gartner (trailers).

6w ago - Square Enix Community Project Manager Hergen Thaens detailed the 19 classes of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for PS4 fans today.

To quote: Welcome to another update on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn - the biggest one so far. A lot of you have probably played the first beta phase from February 22nd to March 3rd - barely enough time to get your hands on one or two classes in a single city, right? Well then, let's introduce you to the others!

You're free to start in any of the three cities: Gridania, Ul'dah, or Limsa Lominsa. Most of you will want to get used to the game first, so you can play solo and get acquainted with everything.

Up until level 15, you've got tons of local quests and adventures that await you - and from level 15 onwards, the whole world opens up to you as you get access to the airship and the other cities.

If you want to play with your friends, you simply have to choose classes with the same starting cities, and you can group up right away.

Once you've acquired a class, you can change to it at any given time (outside of combat and dungeons) by simply equipping the weapon associated with it. It's that simple!

So, let's get started, shall we?

Gridania, One with the Forest

Gridania lies in the...

6w ago - Ronimo Games Producer Robin Meijer announced that Awesomenauts Assemble is out today on PlayStation 4 with a PS4 video trailer below.

To quote: Awesomenauts is making a major comeback today on PS4 in the form of Awesomenauts Assemble! If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you'll get the added bonus of a 20% discount during the first week.

Awesomenauts Assemble! combines modern, team-based multiplayer with classic, alien-blasting action. You'll play as one of 15 interstellar mercenaries, each with his or her own unique abilities and upgrades.

In battle, you'll team up with two other players. These can either be random players or friends, both online or offline through splitscreen.

Together, you'll be facing off against a team of enemy players, automated turrets, droids, and the local wildlife as you try to blast your way forward towards the goal of destroying the enemy base. And you'll do all this on lush, hand-drawn alien worlds.

If you last played Awesomenauts on PS3, you're definitely in for a treat. The game has seen an almost complete overhaul, from the menus and balance to the netcode, everything has been improved.

On top of that, a lot of content has been added compared to the original release. Awesomenauts Assemble! more than doubles...
 

Video: What is N++? An Intro to the PlayStation 4 Action-Platformer

7w ago - Metanet Co-Founder Mare Sheppard is here today with an introduction video to their PlayStation 4 action-platformer called N++ below.

To quote: Hi everyone! This is Metanet, back with another update. Since our last post, we've been focused on getting N++ into an alpha state, which has mostly involved adding all of the particle effects, sounds, and animation that help to really bring things to life.

While the main core of the game has been working for a while, it's nice to finally see things with more bells and whistles!

We've also been making and arranging levels - a continuous process that will go on right up until the game ships - as well as doing some playtesting. People are responding well to the new levels so far, although we may have made some of them a bit too hard.

The good news is: we now have a playable demo which we'll be showing soon at BitSummit and Game Developers Conference. If you'll be at either of those events, please stop by and check it out!

For those of you who don't really know what N++ is, today we're going to delve further into one simple question: "What is N++?"
