Video: ABZU, Giant Squid's First Project is Coming to PlayStation 4

11w ago - Giant Squid Creative Director Matt Nava announced today that ABZU, their first project, is coming to PlayStation 4.

To quote: We are very excited to give you an early glimpse of ABZU, [Register or Login to view links]'s first project, coming to PS4. ABZU will take players on an epic adventure into the depths of the ocean, where they will encounter majestic creatures and discover long lost secrets.

The game draws inspiration from a deep, innate story that we all carry in our collective subconscious, a universal origin myth that resonates across cultures. As such, the name ABZU references a concept from the oldest Mesopotamian mythology: it is the combination of two ancient words Ab, meaning ocean, and Zu, meaning to know. Essentially, ABZU is the ocean of wisdom.





ABZU is being made by Giant Squid, a newly formed game studio intent on making creative and artistic interactive experiences. I started Giant Squid after working as the art director at thatgamecompany on two very fun projects, Flower and Journey.

I learned a lot about the game development process as well as design ethics from the great people on that team. On Journey, I was honored with the responsibility of designing...

11w ago - Kingdom Under Fire II Director and Producer Sang Youn Lee posted up a video trailer below today announcing Kingdom Under Fire II is coming to PS4.

To quote: I'm Sang Youn Lee, Producer and Director of Kingdom Under Fire II. I've developed Kingdom Under Fire I, Kingdom Under Fire: Crusaders, and N3.

Kingdom Under Fire II is brand new, action RTS, in which players can control both troops and the hero at the same time. As a free-to-play MMO, players can evolve from a unknown mercenary up to the ultimate ruler of the world, and also players can explore massive scale battlefields together with friends.

We've developed Kingdom Under Fire II as a successor to previous games in both story and gameplay. Basic troop strategy and action strategy play like the two former games. Furthermore, we developed the gameplay elements so players can focus more on action strategy.





The story of Kingdom Under Fire: Crusaders and Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes are based on the vast story of the Bersia continent. Kingdom Under Fire II starts its story in Bersia where approximately 120 years has passed since Kingdom Under Fire: Crusaders.

Lots of things have changed for 120 years. Regnier, the powerful hero in Kingdom...

Sony Announces Surgeon Simulator PS4 is Coming to PlayStation 4

11w ago - Sony Community Manager Poppy Byron announced today that Surgeon Simulator Coming PS4 is coming to PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: When we first heard that the new generation consoles were arriving, we were super excited about the possibility that the game - OUR game - could be one of the titles available for PS4 owners to enjoy.

There was one problem, though: how on Earth were we going to get the infamous controls to work on DualShock4?

Would the game look good on a next-gen console in a living room?

Would it still be funny? Would Bob be as dashingly handsome on a big screen?

So many questions... we had to try. It turned out that creating a control scheme for Nigel's arm on PS4 was one of the most enjoyable parts of the process.

The first and most obvious step to take was to map hand movement and hand rotation to the left and right thumb sticks, as this is what players tend to expect on a console game. The finger controls were less obvious.

We had a lot of ideas which turned out to be a bit too clumsy even for Surgeon Simulator. In the end we decided to lose the one-button-per-finger design used on the PC and instead condense it down into just two of the shoulder buttons.

The most exciting part was when we started...
