190w ago - SCEE Manager James Gallagher has posted up a video trailer today for Rochard - the gravity bending platform puzzler heading exclusively to PSN.

To quote: Just next door to the gargantuan PlayStation booth here at [Register or Login to view links] is the SOE stand and, during a break from filming our live interviews, I popped over to take a look at an interesting little platformer called [Register or Login to view links], coming exclusively to PlayStation Store this summer.

I sat down with the game's producer for a guided playthrough and, while I figured out the buttons and got my brain around the gravity manipulation gameplay, he explained the general premise.

"You play John Rochard an astro-miner at a company called Sky Rig - we're calling him an everyday hero," he explained.

"The entire company has been down on its luck in terms of finding anything but they stumble upon an alien artefact and, after reporting it to HQ, they find themselves surrounded by space pirates trying to get their hands on it. John is trying to protect his friends and find out what this artefact is in the process."





Rochard is a 2D platformer with 3D graphics, kind of like [Register or Login to view links]'s...

The Polarity of Outland is Hitting PSN on June 14, 2011

191w ago - Outland Lead Designer Aki Raula has announced this weekend that The Polarity of Outland is hitting PSN on June 14, 2011.

To quote: As we are now about to release Outland, I thought it would be nice to share some thoughts on developing the game, especially on its main feature, the "[Register or Login to view links]" polarity mechanic. Thinking about it almost two years later, it feels like we came about the concept easily and naturally.

At the very beginning I had an idea on creating an action adventure platforming game that would give the player similar emotions and encounters I experienced when playing some of my favorite platforming games in the 80's (Pitfall II, Jumpman Jr., Rick Dangerous etc. - see, I never had a NES).

Early versions of Outland had a guy jumping, shooting and sliding around in a jungle environment. We expanded that basic gameplay by adding a special spirit mode that made the character move faster and cause more damage.

Our spirit mode, which we called the "Flow" mode, was one where you turned from a normal guy into a superhero; blue energy surrounded you and you were nearly invincible. We toyed around different variations of the concept, from having an additional boost mode, to having Flow sources/springs in the levels...
 

Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls is Now Live on PSN

50°
191w ago - XSEED Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has announced today that Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls is now live on PSN.

To quote: Few game series have as long and storied a history as Wizardry, which is the same age as Mario and helped inspire entire gaming genres.

Much has changed in this series over the years, but the base formula has remained the same: create your avatar, hire some help at the local guild, accept a quest or two, then crawl through a seemingly endless maze of corridors, traps, treasure chests and secret passageways... all in glorious first-person 3D!

But do mind the monsters. Everything from adorable Vorpal Bunnies to giant dragons, to a demonic face made out of corpses is traipsing through these same cavernous depths, always just around the next corner. Once you're spotted, it's time to fight - and if you're not strong, clever or fast enough to take them down, you're going to wind up as a spot on the wall - like all the others.

In the end, it comes down to tweaking your stats, finding or buying new equipment, keeping track of your whereabouts, exploring thoroughly and strategizing like there's no tomorrow. Think Etrian Odyssey, or Dark Spire, or... well... Wizardry!

There are 10 main characters to choose from, consisting...
