Mando: Cardboard Castle Makes The Cut on PlayStation Mobile

45w ago - Mando Productions Marketing Director Michel Bams announced today that Cardboard Castle is making the cut on PlayStation Mobile.

To quote: Hi there PlayStation Community. This week, we€re launching Cardboard Castle on PlayStation Mobile. This is our first game on the platform, and we wanted to give the community something that was fun, entertaining and creative.

The premise of the game is to use real-world items like scissors, water and fire to help the hero of the story on his adventure through a land of cardboard.

As we were designing the game and discussing the idea of having €real€ elements in the game, someone on our team suggested cardboard with the idea that it could be cut, get wet or burned. So the idea of a puzzle/adventure fantasy world based on cardboard was born.

We wanted to create a story that was totally based on cardboard and paper only. In the beginning the design of the game was really bland, so we added a cartoony feel to it in order to get that balance of real world and cartoon that we were looking for. We also wanted people to feel like they were progressing in the game by using real world items such as scissors and a glass of water.

As you play through the game, you will see where we added fun and humor. The main hero sometimes...
 

Daylight: Procedurally Generated Psychological Horror on PS4

250°
45w ago - Zombie Studios Communications Manager Collin Moore is here with a peek at Daylight for PS4: procedurally generated psychological horror on PlayStation 4!

To quote: E3 is upon us, and Zombie Studios is ready to scare the PlayStation community when Daylight comes to PlayStation 4 early 2014.

A couple months ago, we flew out to PAX East with a pre-alpha build of our latest game Daylight. When you show your game off for the first time, you really aren't sure what people will think! The entire weekend we would watch curious gamers walk up to Daylight. After a brief tutorial we'd just sit back and watch €" anxiously waiting to see what would happen.

Over and over we saw people jump, scream, yell, and one person even ripped off their headphones, took a couple steps back, and looked right at us as if they saw a ghost. Right then and there we knew we had something special. Now we are excited to share that with our fans on PS4!

For those that might not have heard of Daylight, it's a procedurally generated psychological horror game. This means each time you start the game, the entire world will be different; from the layout of the level, the location of items you find, and, most importantly, the encounters you stumble into.

You...
