7w ago - Strange Loop Games Studio Head John Krajewski posted up a video today announcing that Liquid Puzzle Game Vessel is coming to PS3 on March 11th, 2014.

To quote: Vessel will be coming to console exclusively for PS3 on March 11th!

To celebrate this launch, we've created a limited edition of Vessel Turbines, a desk toy that gives you your very own "Fluro" in a bottle. Each bottle contains a large blob of Ferrofluid, a magnetic liquid that comes to life when you apply a magnet - just like the creatures of Vessel.

You can buy it on our Web site and get a key for Vessel on PS3.

In the game Vessel, you take the role of inventor Arkwright who has created living machines made out of liquid (called "Fluros" that are wreaking havoc around the world. You set out to solve the Fluro problem and unravel the mystery of what they're becoming.

Vessel takes a unique approach in gaming by creating all the creatures out of liquid. Their bodies are composed of thousands of physically simulated fluid particles. This means that they're capable of things that few other creatures in a video game are, like melting, reforming into new shapes, flowing through barriers, regrowing lost limbs, chemically...

7w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke announced today that The Swapper is coming to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita in May 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: Our final PlayStation game announcement of the month is something I've wanted to talk about for a really long time. I'm now very happy to be able to tell you about our plans to bring the critically acclaimed puzzle-platformer, The Swapper, to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita this year.

The Swapper was released in 2013 on PC, and has had some amazing press coverage. It won numerous awards in the indie gaming scene for its story, graphics and puzzle design.

We're very lucky to be working with original developer Olli Harjola to bring the game to PlayStation formats, and the game is already looking beautiful on our PlayStation systems here at Curve towers, so we think you're in for a real treat.

The Swapper is set on Theseus, a damaged space station and research facility. It's a claustrophobic, dark, and atmospheric environment, but it's also very unique in style - there's no blocky pixel art and digital textures in this game, but instead handcrafted art and clay models designed by the original developers.

These real world props make up the many different environments in the game and provide The Swapper with an art...

Sony Announces Hohokum: Enter the Fun Fair Coming to PlayStation

8w ago - Sony Co-creator Richard Hogg announced today that Hohokum: Enter the Fun Fair is coming to PlayStation platforms with details below.

To quote: At last, we can reveal the Fun Fair to the world! It's the level we've worked on the longest, and its roots can be traced all the way back to the first prototype of the game we showed back in 2011.

Back then, it was a no-fun fair. It was a place of danger, a beautiful and colorful city, but one that was under attack from a mysterious enemy. Bombs rained down on the town and its peaceful citizens. Your job was to collect these hapless denizens and ferry them to an awaiting boat.

Three years have passed and the city is no longer under threat; it has been rebuilt and expanded. The original citizens are back and enjoying more peaceful times... but not quite, as the Fun Fair has come to town!

This is one of the most frantic and hectic places that you will visit. You will be FLUNG at high velocity into dizzying, concentric trajectories by the SPIROGRABBERS!

You will be SCARED BEYOND WITLESS by the terrifying and not at all cute GHOSTLY TRAIN! You will be THOROUGHLY FERRISED by the magnificent FERRIS WHEEL.

...and if you like sushi, prize vegetables, juvenile birds, mythical reptiles, headless horses, and multi-limbed...

50°
9w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements detailed the NISA 2014 lineup today confirming that Disgaea 4 is indeed coming to PS Vita.

To quote: Last night, the small but spunky team at NIS America reminded downtown San Francisco of its dedication to quirky JRPGs and unusual adventures.

Sporting matching white and blue "Dood" jerseys, the team presented its lineup for 2014 at a local venue, with a little help from a torrent of teaser trailers. Anime in-jokes, self-referential dialogue, and explosions of color dominated the multimedia showcase, staying true to NISA's tradition of catering to otaku culture.

The evening began with NIS President Souhei Niikawa - donning a regal Prinny hat - thanking members of the press for their continued support. Niikawa also revealed that NIS is working on a PS4 game that would enjoy a proper announcement at this year's Tokyo Game Show.

His brief but humble wishes were followed with a host of trailers, each representing one of NISA's projects for the year.
