3w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi is here with a new Rain video trailer today dubbed Two Silhouettes for PlayStation 3 below.
To quote: In our previous blog post, we introduced you to the very first chapter of rain where a young boy ran after a girl with an invisible silhouette brought to life only in the rain.
This imaginative story continues as you progress through the game and today we'd like to pull you deeper into this world with our new trailer, Two Silhouettes.
As the boy chases after the girl, he enters the mysterious world of rain and learns that he has also become invisible. In the pouring rain, he is lost and frightened as he is hunted by ghostly creatures. But, his determination to save the girl only grows stronger and he presses on.
In the new trailer above, you will discover that eventually the paths of the invisible boy and girl collide. Each of the locations they'll visit throughout the game varies dramatically from the next.
For instance, the church where the boy and girl nearly meet on their venture houses a number of rooms near the altar and scaffolding to hide from enemies while the abandoned factory presents a more...
3w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill has gone hands-on today with Media Molecule's new PS Vita adventure game entitled Tearaway below.
To quote: Media Molecule have proven themselves the masters of cuteness and community creativity, constructing a passionate fanbase worldwide through the madly successful LittleBigPlanet series. But what happens when the house that built a Planet sets out to create something completely new?
Maybe I should rephrase that. Their new project, Tearaway, isn't completely outside the studio's comfort zone. It's still adorable, inventive, and a true showcase of its platform's capabilities. Built with PS Vita in mind, Tearaway makes impressive (but not excessive!) use of the integrated camera and rear touchpad to craft a more tactile and immersive world.
Case in point: You'll occasionally come across transparent surfaces marked with PlayStation symbols, an indication that you can interact with that area via PS Vita's rear touchpad.
Sometimes this means tapping on the back of your Vita to beat a drum, which will launch iota or atoi (your fearless paper protagonists) far into the air above. Other times, it means poking your finger straight into the game to protect your companion from incoming enemies, or to move an object that's...
4w ago - Thekla Incorporated President Jonathan Blow shared some video footage today which include conversations with the creators of upcoming title The Witness on the PlayStation 4 / PS4 video game console.
To quote: It's been a few months since our last post, so I think it's a nice time to let people know how the game is coming along.
If you haven't heard about The Witness, it is a game about exploration and puzzle-solving in an open world. Here's our trailer:
The open-world aspect of the design is important; it means you have freedom in terms of where you go and what puzzles you choose to approach right now. At any time you can just stop what you're doing, turn around and go somewhere else, and the game world has plenty of new things to show you.
It's interesting to try and design a puzzle game this way. Puzzle games are usually linear, because the designers want to make sure you have solved a puzzle before going on to a more difficult one.
But in The Witness we have a broader idea about what makes puzzles interesting, and this lets us be versatile in designing the flow of gameplay. We build systems of puzzles...
XBox One will enhance Skype and TV features with a Skype component, but will also also include specialized TV functionality with the guide being dubbed “Intelligent TV” and allow users to switch between shows and channels using voice recognition alongside swapping from playing games to TV. The XBox One will also power on when users say “XBox On” revealing the contents of the dashboard as well.
