110w ago - Dark Energy Digital Senior Creative Designer Rob Hewson has announced today alongside a video trailer that Hydrophobia Prophecy will be hitting PSN Tuesday with PlayStation Move support.
Below are the details, to quote: Launching a game is always a frantic, exciting time, especially when you are a small, close-knit team. The PlayStation Network launch of Hydrophobia Prophecy on November 1st is no exception; in fact we're even more excited than usual to have it launch as Game of the Month on PlayStation Plus, and we're really grateful to PlayStation for getting behind the game.
For those of you unfamiliar with the game, Hydrophobia Prophecy is third-person action adventure with a sci-fi twist and a unique dynamic feature; our custom HydroEngine fluid dynamics technology. It's a full physics simulation for flowing water - the only one of it's kind in games, which allows water to wash dynamically around the environments, carrying objects and characters along with it.
If you're a sucker for water or game physics, then it really is a sight to behold - we're very fortunate here at Dark Energy to have some incredibly talented tech-heads!
HydroEngine allows us to deliver dynamic and unique physics-based...

110w ago - Today Brian Fleming at Sucker Punch Productions has shared the launch trailer for InFamous: Festival of Blood which is now on PSN and includes PlayStation Move support!
To quote: It's been a long time since my last PlayStation.Blog post, and today's entry is a little....different. I'll start with the marketing facts (inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood available now!! $9.99!!
Only $7.99 if you are a PlayStation Plus member!!!) but really, I thought I'd give you a little insight into why and how we ended up making a vampire based spin-off of inFAMOUS.
For us, we'd been working for two projects and five-plus years on the main storyline of inFAMOUS. We wanted the DLC to be a chance to take all that art and technology and do something fun and different for players.
We knew we couldn't just release some more missions or a skin pack, so we took a bunch of pitches from all the departments here at the studio for what we might do. We wanted something that fit the world of inFAMOUS, would be fun to work on, and ideally would be unexpected, too.
One of the strong pitches we got was originally called "Vampire City" (a play on "Empire City" from inFAMOUS). The pitch was that Zeke was trying to impress a...

To quote: I am excited to announce that Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest has indeed "gone gold" and is ready to ship to stores on November 15th!
Soon after completing Sports Champions for the PS3, our team was hard at work on this exciting new project. Taking what we had learned from creating a "best in breed" motion control game, we further refined the controls for this fun action-adventure game specifically designed for the PlayStation Move.
Story Mode - The evil Sorcerer Morgrimm has invaded Prince Edmund's Castle and plots to take over the kingdom, raising an army of skeletons from beyond. Now, let the adventure begin as you battle Morgrimm, and his minions, to restore order to the kingdom!
Battle Mode - Play solo, split-screen, or online in three distinct game types. Survive for as long as you can in Invasion, defend the symbol of your kingdom against Morgrimm's army in Royal Guard, or conjure up minions to attack your opponent in Cauldron Chaos.
