Creat Studios Announces Germinator Infects PS3 on March 5th, 2013

50°
61w ago - Creat Studios VP of Publishing Scott Hyman has annoucned today that Germinator infects PS3 on March, 2013.

Below are the details, to quote: Scott here again from Creat Studios, with an update on our newest release. Germinator will be available in North America on March 5th.

Our team loves to make casual and puzzle games for PlayStation Network. We're the folks that brought you Magic Orbz, Cuboid, Mahjong Tales and Ricochet HD. Our next game, Germinator, continues that tradition.

Now, Germinator is no ordinary bubble game. There's none of the match-three that's been done everywhere else. Instead, same-colored bubbles combine and grow, grow, grow until they pop into a gooey mess!

Germinator features 75 Story levels, 75 Puzzle levels, an unlimited Arcade level and a two-player local multiplayer Duel level. But after stuffing the game with as much content as we could fit, it still wasn't enough.

All this splotchy, splattering goop needed to expand... to PlayStation Vita! We're thrilled to let everyone know that we're putting the final touches on the Vita build now, and we'll bring it to you in the coming weeks.

FarSight Studios Confirm Pinball Arcade Twilight Zone Table Out Today

50°
62w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King has confirmed that the Pinball Arcade Twilight Zone Table is out today.

To quote: This is Bobby King from FarSight Studios, the makers of the Pinball Arcade for PS3 and PS Vita. We are super excited to announce that today, thanks to our fans, we'll be releasing our re-creation of one of the greatest pinball tables ever - Twilight Zone!

With the help of the pinball legend Roger Sharpe, who did the original table's licensing deal for Williams/Bally, we were able to get the CBS-owned rights to the TV show. This deal was too expensive for us to make the numbers work, though.

We would have lost money with the number of sales we were projecting. But thanks to our players and pinball fans all around the world who chipped in through Kickstarter.com - we got the extra money that we needed to make the deal for the Twilight Zone IP!

This is such a great table. Personally, it's my second favorite to play in our game right behind Star Trek: The Next Generation (which we'll be releasing before the end of next month, but I'm getting ahead of myself).

Twilight Zone is awesome! It's an unbelievably deep gameplay experience. One of the features...
 

Video: Head in the Clouds: Writing BioShock Infinite - Irrational Games

50°
64w ago - Irrational Games Writer Drew Holmes has shared a video today dubbed Head in the Clouds spotlighting the writing of BioShock Infinite below.

To quote: The toughest question to answer is "How do you write for a BioShock game?" Wait, let me back up.

I started at Irrational almost a year ago. At that point, there wasn't a "writing team", it was just Ken Levine. Luckily, Ken is a smart guy and knew that this upcoming game was going to be big. Bigger than any game he'd worked on before.

So I tricked him into hiring me, and a couple months later we realized it was still a really big game, so Joe Fielder tricked us into hiring him as well. And the three of us, along with Jordan Thomas, tried to wrangle the beast that is BioShock Infinite.

The writing team at Irrational is structured a lot like a television writing staff. (At least I assume. I've never worked in TV, so maybe they don't have a special room for footrubs and/or quiet sobbing.)





We'll sit down with a problem to solve ("How do we make Infinite make any sense?") and pitch various ideas ("Free drugs in every box?") until one of them sticks. (*INSERT ENDING OF BIOSHOCK INFINITE*) Then we'll grind...
