79w ago - PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with this weeks US PSN updates today, as follows:
Coming to the PlayStation Store this week is a new category called PS3 Full Games for games that were previously disc only but are now available to download on PSN.
Not only will this make it easier for you to find those larger previously disc-only experiences, but you'll also find DLC, add-ons, demos, and any other content associated with games in this category all housed in the same area once you click on the respective game.
Games that are developed and exclusively available via download are now in the newly created PSN Games category.
Kicking off the new PS3 Full Game category is the release of Red Dead Redemption and the Undead Nightmare Collection. You can either download these 2 standalone titles separately, or save some money and pick up the bundle including both Red Dead Redemption (Full Game) and its zombified expansion Undead Nightmare Collection (Add-on). All Red Dead Redemption content is 30% off, or snag a 50% discount if you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber.

It's called "Where is my Heart?", and it's about a family of monsters lost in the woods. In the game you have help them find a way back to their home - a mysterious tree with a heart in its branches. The whole story is set in an 8-bit style environment made up of woods, mushroom caves, crystal rock pools, fern fringed creeks and waterfalls.
Nils, our artist, is going to talk more about the concept art and environment design of the game below. As for the game mechanics: the basics play just like a usual platform game, but the world is visually sliced into rectangular fragments (or panels) which are placed on the screen at unexpected locations.
With this game mechanic - the messed up way of representation - I attempted to evoke the sensation of being lost. On top of that, the visual slicing also allowed us to add further...
