Video: Pickles in Your Pocket: Bringing Runner2 to PlayStation Vita

50°
63w ago - Gaijin Games Associate Producer Dant Rambo posted up a video today announcing Runner2 for the PlayStation Vita handheld console.

To quote: Adapting a console game for a mobile platform is no walk in the Welcome Park. The reasons for this are numerous, but it ultimately boils down to an issue of faithfulness.

We can't speak for other developers - though we imagine they would agree - but we wanted our game, BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, to feel the same on the Vita as it does on the rest of its platforms.

Furthermore, we wanted to provide players everywhere with the chance to carry [Register or Login to view links] around wherever they go. Though we've not yet finished our development of the Vita version, we're confident we've succeeded on both fronts.

For those unaware, Runner2 is a 2D platformer featuring vibrant worlds, unique characters, challenging (and rewarding!) gameplay, and the vocal stylings of Charles Martinet.

From the early planning stages to the finished product, our goal was to create a game that made people happy. If it just so happens that you're someone who likes to be happy, chances are good you'll enjoy it immensely.

Now, with the elevator pitch out of the way,...
 

Red Barrels: Outlast Will Scare the Heck Out of You on PS4

50°
63w ago - Red Barrels Co-Founder Philippe Morin promises PS4 fans today that Outlast will scare the heck out of you on the PlayStation 4 console.

To quote: Hi, I'm Philippe Morin from Red Barrels! Together with co-founders David Chateauneuf and Hugo Dallaire, we started an indie studio for one reason: to use our experience working on games like Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Assassin's Creed to make the horror game we've been talking about with each other for years.

We're all big horror fans, especially David, and the game we wanted to make, a realistic survival horror game, wasn't the type of thing any big companies were willing to take a risk on. So we're taking the risk ourselves with Outlast, a survival horror, stealth-based game set in an abandoned asylum, coming to PS4 next year!

The best games make you feel something, some type of emotion that sticks with you after you're done playing. And fear is one of the most powerful emotions we can have as human beings. So for us, to make the best game possible, we know that we have to scare the heck out of you. We're trying to do that in a number of different ways, but where we start is with the design.

In Outlast you play as a journalist with no weapons or fighting ability. You're powerless and...
 

Grapefrukt Games: Rymdkapsel - Minimalist Space Strategy and You

50°
68w ago - Frapefrukt Games' Martin Jonasson showcased Rymdkapsel today, covering the minimalist space strategy and you with details below.

To quote: A year ago, I started making a game about a space station. I wanted to make a game that had all the fun parts of an RTS but none of the fiddly, stressful bits. The more I removed, the better the game became and that's how Rymdkapsel came into being.

Rymdkapsel is a game about building your station; imagine a real time strategy game where you don't have to worry about ever leaving the cozy comforts of your home base.

It's not all smooth sailing though, when your base grows bigger as does your need for space and resources. All this expansion will surely attract the attention of the dreaded enemy. This leaves you with the task of balancing your quest for expansion with the safety of a small, tight, structure.

The philosophy of less is more goes on right through the entire game. This idea of removing-to-make-better isn't a new one for sure, it's something I've been exploring in many prototypes for years.

I've made a one button dungeon crawler (glorg), an implementation of Tetris that only requires one dimensional touch input and a crazy tower defense that lets you skip around in time to get to the fun bits faster.
