Freedom Wars: The World of Panopticon on PS Vita Detailed

50°
15w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi shared details today on Freedom Wars: The World of Panopticon coming to PS Vita below.

To quote: It's been a few weeks since we made the announcement for the North American release of Freedom Wars, and we're overwhelmed with all the positive comments we've been seeing! Today, we'd like to dive deeper into the world of Freedom Wars on PS Vita.

In PT Era 102014, the earth has been devastated by atmospheric pollution and the world is running out of resources. Human beings can only survive inside purpose-built facilities known as Panopticons.

City-states across the world fight each other to take control of what is left, using these Panopticons to take over other competing regions. You take on the role of prisoner in this Panopticon facility, subject to a million-year sentence.

When the story begins, the main character finds himself in a cell with no recollection of where - or who - he is. An Android, also referred to as an "Accessory" throughout the game, is sent to brief him on his fate. The Accessory tells the protagonist that he must fight massive Abductors to reduce his million-year sentence.

Charlie's Games Announces Son of Scoregasm is Coming to PS Vita

50°
15w ago - Charlie's Games developer Charlie Knight announced today that Son of Scoregasm is coming to PlayStation Vita.

Below are the details, as follows: Hi, I'm Charlie of Charlie's Games.

I've been writing and releasing shooty games since 2005, including Irukandji, Bullet Candy,and - most recently - Scoregasm. I'm here to talk about my latest super amazing game Son of Scoregasm, which is coming to PS Vita very soon.

In Son of Scoregasm I've tried to create something slick, varied, challenging, and fun that plays really well on Vita. The game is a sequel to Scoregasm, which was released in 2011, and in essence is a refinement of that game, taking the best bits and improving the rest.

Son of Scoregasm is a twin stick shooter, though not in the typical survival style. Instead, the game is comprised of a series of interlinked levels that you progress through in a non-linear style. What this means is that there are multiple paths through the game, ranging from fairly easy routes to some that are pretty hardcore.

The levels themselves are designed to be different, and there's a real variety of enemies, traps, and bosses for you overcome as you explore the game and find all the exits.

In Son of Scoregasm, the pulse attack is a really helpful, close-range pulse...
 

Video: Sparkle 2 is Coming to PS4 and PS Vita on May 20th, 2014

15w ago - 10tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi announced today alongside a video trailer that Sparkle 2 is coming to PS4 and PS Vita on May 20th, 2014.

To quote: Hello again! I'm back today to announce 10tons is about to bring another action puzzle game, Sparkle 2, to PS4 and PS Vita. Sparkle 2 will launch on both platforms on May 20th, with cross buy support and a free trial. It's priced at $7.99.

Sparkle 2 is a superbly polished match-three puzzle game set in a mysterious world of magic and wonder. The game features smooth gameplay, plenty of power-ups with big special effects, beautiful graphics, and a cinematic soundtrack.

We're particularly proud of how well the basic gameplay translated to gamepad controls. Marble shooters play great with mouse controls or a touch screen, and we had an idea it'd work with an analog stick, too. We just didn't expect it to be quite as good as Sparkle 2 turned out.

An even bigger unknown, and an even more pleasant surprise, was how fun the game is to play with the DualShock 4 touch pad. We're using it basically like a mouse, with an on-screen pointer and all, and it works really nicely. On PS Vita we of course use the touch screen, and it's just awesome.

50°
16w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke shared a video today introducing Schrodinger in MouseCraft on PlayStation Vita.

To quote: We always planned MouseCraft on PS Vita to be an accessible, well designed, gameplay-driven game, but the most eye-catching aspect is definitely our main character - he is the star of our newly released trailer and he is visible in the background of every level available in the game.

Meet Schrodinger, our crazy cat scientist.

In queso you missed it...

MouseCraft is our upcoming A to B puzzle game where players help a group of mice in their relentless quest for cheese, guiding them to their goal by stacking Tetrominoes along their path.

The game is meant to be a family-friendly puzzle experience, but we also have not forgotten about the completionists and hardcore players - the game offers 80 levels full of collectibles, trophies, enemies, hazards and seven different types of Tetromino bricks.

One thing that does not change throughout the whole game is your main goal: helping a cat by leading the group of mice to the cheese.





Brie-lliant mind?

Ok, but who is this cat?

His name is Schrodinger,...
 

Video: Hohokum: The Right Kind of Wonky on PS4, PS3, PS Vita

16w ago - Hohokum Co-creator Richard Hogg posted up a video today dubbed The Right Kind of Wonky spotlighting Hohokum for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: Hello there! We're nearly finished making Hohokum for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, and we're excited for its launch this Summer!

For me, this past month has mostly been about all those final tweaks to the art. Making sure I'm happy with absolutely everything in the game.

Some might call this "polish," but polish implies a smoothness and shyness that somehow doesn't seem right for my work on Hohokum. Today I was re-drawing some wonky hotdog-trees. They're still pretty wonky but now it's the right kind of wonky.

So, yeah. We're nearly done with the biggest and most ambitious endeavor of my life. It's an exciting time and also a time for reflection...





Recently we were filmed for the first of a series of developer diaries that touch on key components that make up the world of Hohokum. Our first video is about the Art of Hohokum, featuring myself and Ricky Haggett.

We get a lot of questions about how the art style came about, what our process is like, and how our collaboration works. There is some sketchbook stuff that you might...
