Sony Announces Hohokum: Enter the Fun Fair Coming to PlayStation

9w ago - Sony Co-creator Richard Hogg announced today that Hohokum: Enter the Fun Fair is coming to PlayStation platforms with details below.

To quote: At last, we can reveal the Fun Fair to the world! It's the level we've worked on the longest, and its roots can be traced all the way back to the first prototype of the game we showed back in 2011.

Back then, it was a no-fun fair. It was a place of danger, a beautiful and colorful city, but one that was under attack from a mysterious enemy. Bombs rained down on the town and its peaceful citizens. Your job was to collect these hapless denizens and ferry them to an awaiting boat.

Three years have passed and the city is no longer under threat; it has been rebuilt and expanded. The original citizens are back and enjoying more peaceful times... but not quite, as the Fun Fair has come to town!

This is one of the most frantic and hectic places that you will visit. You will be FLUNG at high velocity into dizzying, concentric trajectories by the SPIROGRABBERS!

You will be SCARED BEYOND WITLESS by the terrifying and not at all cute GHOSTLY TRAIN! You will be THOROUGHLY FERRISED by the magnificent FERRIS WHEEL.

...and if you like sushi, prize vegetables, juvenile birds, mythical reptiles, headless horses, and multi-limbed...
 

Disgaea 4 is Coming to PS Vita, NISA 2014 Lineup Detailed

50°
9w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements detailed the NISA 2014 lineup today confirming that Disgaea 4 is indeed coming to PS Vita.

To quote: Last night, the small but spunky team at NIS America reminded downtown San Francisco of its dedication to quirky JRPGs and unusual adventures.

Sporting matching white and blue "Dood" jerseys, the team presented its lineup for 2014 at a local venue, with a little help from a torrent of teaser trailers. Anime in-jokes, self-referential dialogue, and explosions of color dominated the multimedia showcase, staying true to NISA's tradition of catering to otaku culture.

The evening began with NIS President Souhei Niikawa - donning a regal Prinny hat - thanking members of the press for their continued support. Niikawa also revealed that NIS is working on a PS4 game that would enjoy a proper announcement at this year's Tokyo Game Show.

His brief but humble wishes were followed with a host of trailers, each representing one of NISA's projects for the year.

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

9w 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....
 

Video: Bound by Flame is Coming to PS3, PlayStation 4 in 2014

9w ago - Spiders Studio Project Manager Walid Miled announced today that Bound by Flame is coming to PS3 and PS4 in 2014 with details below.

To quote: Hello, readers! This is Walid, producer at Spiders Studio.

I'm very proud to tell you about Spiders' latest game, and our first RPG for PS4: Bound by Flame. We're planning to release our baby in Q2 2014 for PS3 and PS4. Today, we chose to unveil an overview trailer to show you some of the most important features of the game.

After watching this trailer, we can dig a little deeper into what this is all about!

Bound by Flame is an action-RPG set in a dark fantasy universe. In this world, evil wizards, the seven Icelords, have taken over, raising an army of undead and wiping out the living.

Your character, who can be male or female, is named Vulcan. Vulcan is a mercenary and explosives expert - a very unlucky one, might I add - that gets himself possessed by a powerful fire demon. I won't go into details on how that happens; you'll have to play to find out yourself.

Working on Bound by Flame has been a blast. I mean, this is dark fantasy, right? Truckloads of big and ugly monsters, all sorts of magic, and some of the meanest, badass bosses you've ever seen.

In Bound by Flame, you better be prepared...
 

Forest Legends: The Call of Love on PS3 Coming to PlayStation 3

50°
10w ago - Alawar Entertainment Product Manager Polina Belavskaya announced that Forest Legends: The Call of Love on PS3 is coming to the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: Forest Legends: The Call of Love is a game for people who believe in magic.

Once upon a time, the Earth was inhabited by not only people but also Felizes - creatures that could transform into cat-like beings. Without warning, dark times fell upon the world, and war engulfed both races.

The humans forced the Felizes to leave the land they had called home for thousands of years and hide in the forests. Humans then outlawed magic and spared no opportunity to attack the werecats.

War, however, means nothing to a pair of young lovebirds. Forest Legends: The Call of Love tells a magical story of a forbidden romantic love - and of a betrayal as corrupt as the love is pure.

The player takes the role of Eveline, the only child of the chief hunter of a human town. She loves Aurelio, a werecat. As the game begins, Eveline and Aurelio meet in a dark forest, where Aurelio is wounded and then kidnapped.

Eveline must follow the trail of the kidnappers, free her beloved, and restore peace between the races. Her companion is a charming baby dragon that helps her to solve puzzles and figure out...
