Video: Zen Studios Unveil KickBeat, PS Vita Music Combat Game

99w ago - Zen Studios Creative Director Neil Sorens has officially introduced PS Vita music combat game KickBeat today alongside a debut video trailer below!

To quote: Hello, PlayStation fans! I'm very excited to tell you about our new game: KickBeat.

It's a music game; it just doesn't look like one. Check it out, and then after the jump I'll tell you about how it works and some of the development history.

Music games have a long tradition of innovation. From the peripheral-based games like Guitar Hero and Dance Dance Revolution to controller-based ones like Frequency and Patapon, these games allow us to experience music in new and often unexpected ways.

KickBeat follows in the tradition of this type of music game. Although its beat-matching mechanic is not complex and will be familiar to fans of the music game genre, KickBeat does a couple things that make it different from anything else you've played...





And with publishers afraid to do anything except sequels to dance games, what better time than now to give the genre a kick in the pants?

Video: The Making of Sorcery for PS3: The Music Behind the Myth

50°
101w ago - Sony's Sorcery Creative Director Brian Upton at Santa Monica Studio has shared some video footage today spotlighting the making of Sorcery for PS3: The Music Behind the Myth!

To quote: In this installment of our "Making of Sorcery" video series, we turn our attention to the music and sound design in this upcoming PlayStation Move title.

It was very important to have a Celtic inspired score for this game, but we wanted to do something a bit unusual with Celtic music, almost stretching the use of the instruments where possible in an effort to give the world of Sorcery its own unique sound.

As you'll notice, we have drums, flutes, and other instruments that give the music somewhat of a medieval feel, but at the same time we didn't want to be limited to that.

We wanted to bring in as many other sounds as possible to create a wider palette.





The result is a fusion of traditional Celtic music with more contemporary instrumentation and sound effects that boost the feeling of immersion you get by casting spells with the PS Move controller.

Here's a look, and don't forget Sorcery will hit stores in North America on Tuesday, May 22nd!
