Image & Form Games: SteamWorld Dig Coming to PS4, PS Vita in 2014

50°
40w ago - Image & Form Games CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson announced today that SteamWorld Dig is coming to PS4 and PS Vita in 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone, thrilled to be here - finally! I'm Brjann Sigurgeirsson, the worst-named CEO of the worst-named game development studio in the world, Image & Form Games.

I'm here to present perhaps the world's worst-named game: SteamWorld Dig. It launches on PS4 and PS Vita this year. Don't let the title fool you - the game is great!

Image & Form is a Swedish game developer based in rainy, windy Gothenburg. There's a dozen of us, and the rest of the lot is a bunch of brilliant, hard-working, and quite childish people.

I also work hard and am rather childish myself, but instead of being brilliant all the time I focus on hogging credit and interacting with you guys. You can read more about all of us right here.

Take the role of Rusty - a lone, mining steambot - as he arrives to an old mining town in great need. Dig your way through the old earth, gaining riches while uncovering the ancient threat that lurks below.

SteamWorld Dig is what we call "a mining platform adventure." The objective is mining, the controls are those of a platformer, and it's a story-driven game with a defined beginning and end....
 

Red Barrels Announces Outlast is Out Today: Survival Horror on PS4

42w ago - Red Barrels Co-Founder Philippe Morin announced that Outlast PS4 is officially out today bringing survival horror to PlayStation 4.

To quote: Hello gamers! I'm Philippe Morin, one of the co-founders of [Register or Login to view links].

Our first game, Outlast, is coming to PS4 today, and I'm excited to share that those of you who are PlayStation Plus subscribers will be able to download it completely for free.

Outlast itself is a survival-horror game created by a team of 11 people with one common goal: to scare the *bleep* out of you.

Here's the story so far... In the remote mountains of Colorado, horrors wait inside Mount Massive Asylum. A long-abandoned home for the mentally ill, the facility was recently re-opened by the "research and charity" branch of the transnational Murkoff Corporation.

Taking advantage of the Asylum's history and remote location, they've been operating in strict secrecy. That is, they were until the reporter arrived.

Acting on a tip from an anonymous source, independent journalist Miles Upshur has broken into the facility, and what he is about to discover inside will walk a terrifying line between science and religion, nature and something entirely other. Trapped with nightmares old and new, his only...
 

Rumor: PS1 / PS2 Games Heading to PlayStation 4 / PS4 via Emulation

400°
43w ago - Today Eurogamer (linked above) reports on rumors of PS1 / PS2 games heading to PlayStation 4 / PS4 via emulation with details below.

To quote: Backwards compatibility is coming to PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Now is only part of the story. A well-placed source working with Sony's streaming service reveals that only PlayStation 3 titles are currently scheduled to use the "gameplay over IP" cloud service. PS1 and PS2 titles are set to follow the more conventional route of running locally under emulation on Sony's latest console - but with the possibility of HD visual enhancements.

While Sony effectively phased out hardware emulation of previous platforms during the early stages of the PS3 era, it has worked consistently on opening up the PlayStation back catalogue to publishers via software emulation and PSN downloads.

Internally, PlayStation 3's firmware contains emulators for PS1, PS2 and even the handheld PSP, while Vita is capable of running PS1 and Vita titles virtually flawlessly using the same technology. In short, there's a proven codebase that can only get better for the vastly more powerful PS4.

Our information suggests that the same internal emulator strategy is planned for PlayStation 4, and we understand that Sony is actively pursuing the ability for older titles to...

ThatGameCompany's Flow PS4 Game Comes to PlayStation 4 Tuesday

100°
49w ago - Associate Producer Eric Fong of Santa Monica Studio announced that ThatGameCompany's Flow PS4 game is coming to PlayStation 4 this Tuesday.

To quote: Hi all, season's greetings from everyone here at Sony Santa Monica!

For me, the holidays are a time for reverence, a time to give thanks to family/friends/co-workers, a time to look forward to the new possibilities the coming year has to offer and of course a time to enjoy some games.

This year, I had the good fortune to work on two ports of thatgamecompany's games with two amazing developers: Flower on PS4 and PS Vita with Bluepoint Games, and flOw on PS4 and PS Vita with SuperVillain Studios. I'd like to thank all of the fans out there who helped to make Flower the top-selling PS4 (Without Digital Upgrade) game on PlayStation Store.

If you are one of the many people who enjoyed Flower, be sure to check out flOw on PS4 and PS Vita when it comes out on December 17th (that's Tuesday!) - It's $5.99 for the base game and $1.99 for the DLC.

And if you're in the mood for something a little different, something a little dark but chock full of humor, check out Escape Plan - now available on PS4. Escape Plan is a cross-buy title for PS4 and PS Vita available for $14.99.

And just a reminder that these are Cross-Buy...
