17w ago - Today 505 Games Senior Brand Manager Richard Gittins announced Terraria officially arrives on PlayStation Vita.

To quote: We're delighted to be giving PS Vita players the chance to jump into the world of Terraria, and satisfy the requests of so many fans in the process.

The core game that so many Terrarians know and love remains the same, however the Vita has allowed us to introduce a bunch of new features and functionality, making the Vita version super-fun to play and great looking at the same time!

It's the revamped control system that's seen the most focus this time around, in terms of really delivering something new and unique; introducing touch support to make the gameplay experience more immediate, tactile, and absorbing.

You can use touch controls to combine and craft intuitively within the item interface, but also when digging, building, and creating your own environments - this time with added finesse.

You can also jump in and enjoy online multiplayer with up to eight players, whether that's battling each other in a fight for survival, or teaming up to take on bosses and build bigger and better worlds together.

Not only that, but you've got the added benefits of cross platform play and cross save with your PS3. Play Terraria against...

17w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani announced today that Assassin's Creed IV: Freedom Cry arrives tomorrow on PS3 / PS4 as DLC with a video trailer below.

To quote: Unleash the fury of Adewale's machete in Freedom Cry, a new single-player episode of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag coming to PlayStation Store tomorrow!

Fifteen years after the events of Assassin's Creed IV, the former first mate of the Jackdaw and trained Assassin Adewale finds himself embroiled in a battle to free slaves in Haiti.

Featuring a brand new environment in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Freedom Cry plunges you into a world dominated by the slave trade, and confronts Adewale with a past he'd hoped to have left far behind.





On Adewale's journey, you'll free slaves from plantations as well as huge slaver galleons while sailing aboard Adewale's ship, the Experto Crede. Some of those you liberate will choose to help you, whether it's fighting by your side or assisting by unlocking new upgrades to Adewale's trademark weapons: a wicked machete designed to use crushing momentum to hack through nearly anything and a wide-bore blunderbuss capable of dropping multiple foes in a single blast.
 

Video: Chromatic Aberration is Out Now on PlayStation Mobile

18w ago - Hiive LLC Designer Andrew Rollings announced that Chromatic Aberration is out now on PlayStation Mobile.

Below are the details and some fresh video footage, to quote: On Tuesday, we launched our second PS Mobile game, Chromatic Aberration.

This is an original idea that utilizes borrowed elements from different 80's games. Since we wanted the game to have a very unique feel, we had to get the right set of tools to give us the look and feel we wanted. After securing the use of SuperIcon's Pixel Engine, we set about designing 64 of the most fiendish, insane levels we could think of.

Chromatic Aberration works like this: when you pick up a tesseract (little color-coded cubes), your character's color changes to that of the tesseract, which in turn affects the platforms you can interact with. For example, collecting a red tesseract will turn you red.

This means you can stand on red platforms - but will be killed by green ones (as green is opposite red on the color wheel). Conversely, collecting a green tesseract will turn you green. This means you can stand on green platforms, but will be killed by red ones.





With the most recent update to the PlayStation Mobile SDK, we were able to add in...
 

Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God Out Today on PS Vita

50°
18w ago - Project Lead Sanabu Washizuka announced that Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God is out today on PS Vita.

To quote: What a delectably delicious day it is! The roguelike RPG Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God launches today. Sorcery Saga is exclusive to PS Vita and is available at both retail and on PlayStation Store.

Like the name suggests, it's wacky, fun, and a real challenge. Today, we wanted to give all you folks an overview of the game.

So what is Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God all about?

Sorcery Saga tells the story of Pupuru and her brave quest to save her favorite curry restaurant from the big, bad curry chain that's just moved into town. Harmless, right? Wrong! In order to do so, Pupuru and her grumpy (and always hungry) creature friend, Kuu, must travel to find ingredients to make the legendary curry.

Along the way, Pupuru meets many interesting and strange people, including the rather forward Gigadis and the mysterious, non-committal Puni.

How Does This Thing Play?

As Pupuru, you'll enter a dungeon and travel on a grid-like system. Attacks are turn-based, but what makes Sorcery Saga truly challenging is its roguelike quality. Meaning, if you fall in a dungeon, you lose all your items...

18w ago - Half of Ivent Games' Lyubomir Iliev announced that Strength of the Sword 3 is out today on PlayStation 3 with a fresh video trailer below.

To quote: Helloeveryone - Ivent Games here to announce that Strength of the Sword 3 is out today on PS3! I know you've never heard of us before, so I think an introduction is in order.

We're a tiny, indie team, comprised of just two people: me (Lyubomir Iliev) and my friend and colleague Georgi Rakidov.

For the past five years we've been hard at work on developing our first project: Strength of the Sword 3. It's a downloadable, challenge-driven sword fighting game exclusive to PS3. In it, you take control of a mechanical knight sent from the heavens to battle a rising evil that has swept the land... and that's pretty much all the story we're going to give you. Yeah.

But this isn't a game about story. This is a game about CHALLENGE! It's very old-school in that regard. It's the kind of game you "beat" instead of just "finish."





Strength of the Sword 3 has quite a different kind of combat system that combines action, strategy, and management challenges, centered on three types of resources and their offensive/defensive uses.
