Video: Frobisher Says - Mega Fun Pack Adds 15 New Mini-Games

200°
53w ago - Honeyslug Producer Mark Inman confirmed today that the Frobisher Says Mega Fun Pack adds 15 new mini-games and is out Tuesday with a video trailer below.

To quote: If you enjoy being ordered to open seafood, not smile at woodland creatures and punch a bear in the face, you'll be delighted to hear that Frobisher's Mega Fun Pack is coming to a PS Vita near you on Tuesday!

As if the previous requests Frobisher made weren't crazy enough, the Mega Fun Pack contains 15 new games involving such ludicrous demands as joining a gurning squad, milking a mammoth and driving to Stephen's house. Who is Stephen? We're still not quite sure.

Frobisher hasn't exhausted all the ways you can use your PS Vita to solve his conundrums, so expect to utilize the system's unique motion and touch capabilities in even more bizarre ways with the Mega Fun Pack.





In case you haven't played lately, Frobisher has added some new features for the main game - and our previous Super Fun Pack DLC - too! If you're used to doing his bidding, you'll be pleased to know that Frobisher has found some Trophies he no longer wants, and he's going to make you work for them.

For those...
 

Divekick: The Fighting Community Phenomenon Comes to PSN

50°
55w ago - Divekick Creator Adam "Keits" Heart has confirmed that the fighting community phenomenon Divekick is coming to PSN.

To quote: Divekick began as a late night joke. I asked aloud to my friend Stephen, "What if there was a game called Divekick, and the characters were Dive and Kick, and the buttons were Dive and Kick?"

He shot up and proudly announced to me that he could make such a game, and by morning we had a design document and we were ready to start. I didn't know it when I made the joke, but Stephen apparently knows enough to code a game!

As we developed the prototype, it became clear that this game was a great tool to clearly explain how deep a single move can really be, and that the high-stress, high-tension gameplay was keeping our test groups hooked. We couldn't get rid of them! We would invite a test group in for a four-hour session, and after fourteen hours they'd still be there laughing and raging at each other.

I'm so excited to finally show what we've been working on to the public. You just really have to try it for yourself to understand what it is all about! We've been playing it every day in serious competition in the Iron Galaxy office after lunch for six months now.

As our players' skill increases, and the number of mistakes they...
 

Mossmouth: Indie Hit Spelunky is Coming to PSN This Summer

200°
55w ago - Today Mossmouth's Derek Yu has confirmed that indie hit Spelunky is coming to PSN fans this Summer.

Below are the details, to quote: Oh man, this is exciting! It's with great pleasure that I can announce the upcoming arrival of Spelunky on PS3 and PS Vita. I know that we're not the first indie title to be announced this year for these platforms, but the Spelunky team is happy to be part of this wave of indie goodness.

If you've never heard of Spelunky, it's a platformer with randomly-generated levels, making each playthrough a unique experience. The game is hard, but it's rarely unfair, and when you die it's usually in a hilarious way that involves some kind of ridiculous chain reaction.

The difficulty and the randomization work together to give determined players a very rewarding experience - it's common for people to persevere through thousands of deaths to beat Spelunky and uncover its most notorious treasure and secrets.

I think this quote from one of the 2012 Independent Games Festival judges captures the spirit of the game well:

"Spelunky looks like a game of execution, but it's really a game about information and decision-making. How good are you at looking at a situation and understanding what it means?

You can't memorize, and you can't...
 

Dollar Dash: Pull Off the Ultimate Heist on PlayStation Network Today

50°
56w ago - Candygun Games Managing Director Roger Joswig invites fans to pull off the ultimate heist in Dollar Dash on PlayStation Network today!

To quote: Everyone here on the development team at Candygun Games is excited to see Dollar Dash release on the PlayStation Network.

Creating a game with local multiplayer mayhem was at the top of our priorities as we designed it to be entertaining to play with friends on the couch or online. We are quite happy with the depth of multiplayer options and configurations - there are so many ways to play.

In Dollar Dash, players control a cartoon thief and attempt to grab as much cash as they can carry in their bag. To secure victory, players must bring their bag of cash to a getaway car all while avoiding pratfalls from other thieves who are out to collect the cash for themselves.

Luckily, there are crazy amounts of weapons and power-ups to utilize in effort to gather the most amounts of cash and stand on top of the piles of cash to be called the number-one thief.

Speaking of weapons, Dollar Dash has 20 crazy ones: from hunting thieves by throwing a cactus pot at them or squashing them with a giant boulder, the game is truly mad. Players can throw down oil slicks or portable holes to shake off pursuers.

Perhaps they...
 

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World DLC: Online Multiplayer & Wallace Wells

50°
57w ago - Sony Producer Guillaume Gad shared a video today showcasing Scott Pilgrim vs. The World DLC including Online Multiplayer and Wallace Wells below.

To quote: When we created a game called Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, we meant it. "But," you might have asked, "what about playing against other Scott Pilgrim fans from around the world?"

Sure, our side-scrolling beat-em-up based on Bryan Lee O'Malley's award-winning graphic novels let's you play as everyone's favorite lovable loser: the titular Mr. Pilgrim.

And yes, you could team up with your pals for some couch co-op, playing as one of Scott's kooky cohorts in this charmingly 8-bit retro-gaming world (all while rocking to the chiptune sounds of ANAMANAGUCHI). But what about online multiplayer?

With the latest downloadable content, your question has been answered. Out now tomorrow on PlayStation Network for $4.99, this new DLC not only adds Wallace Wells to the roster, but also brings online multiplayer to the game. No more crowding on the couch (unless, of course, you want to... but that's your business).





Instead, you can summon your pals from around the world to take on Ramona Flowers' evil exes - and...
