16w ago - Digital Dreams Level Designer Roy van de Mortel shared some concept art and details today on both infographics and input morphing in Metrico on PS Vita below.
To quote: It has been a while since we announced Metrico, so we are very excited to finally be able to share some more insights into the development and current state of Metrico.
We have been working very hard the last couple of months to make sure we now have a playable version, so people can experience what Metrico is about for the first time.
We announced Metrico at GDC San Francisco back in March with an announcement teaser, which was well received. But we knew that the next time we showed something to the press and you guys, we obviously would have to show more than the abstract video, aimed at introducing the game.
Metrico is a mysterious world, so we decided to keep it a bit vague with the teaser. We have a lot more to show since last March, so we'd like to take a moment and explain what type of a game Metrico is.
In Metrico the player needs to traverse the game world, which is built from all sorts of infographics, like bar diagrams, pie charts, line graphs, etc. These infographics constantly change based on your actions,...
34w ago - Following up on Sony's recent PS Vita Firmware 2.10 release, PlayStation Vita hacker The Z has shared some videos of a Hello World and VHBL running on it alongside news of TN-V v3 incoming.
Below are the details via Wololo, to quote: It is no secret that PS Vita scene member The Z has a PSP hack available and running on the Vita. He actually mentioned that a while ago back when 2.06 was the latest and greatest.
Today, as firmware 2.10 was announced then quickly made available, we got the usual flow of questions: Have exploits been patched? Does VHBL still work? Will TN save the world from the Giant Crab?
Well at least now we can at least answer one of those, as The Z was quick to confirm that his current exploit is still alive on PS Vita 2.10, as shown in the video below.
Don’t get too excited though. This is, as is now the tradition, “only” a usermode exploit inside of the PSP emulator, running through an undisclosed PSP game, and The Z has not announced anything about a release.
To some of you, this might sound like a broken record now, but new people...
39w ago - Following up on his initial announcement, today PlayStation Vita developer Total_Noob has shared a demo video of his upcoming 6.60 TN-V CEF (Custom Emulator Firmware) for Sony's PS Vita handheld gaming console.
Below are the details, to quote: "Total_Noob has released a more in-depth trailer video of his upcoming CEF (Custom Emulator Firmware) for the PS Vita.
The brand new video that you can watch below showcases TN-V better than the last one, showing off more features such as changing themes and playing music with the full XMB experience running smoothly on the PS Vita.
As we previously announced, TN-V will be compatible with all of the 2.02 and below exploit releases thus far for the Vita; TN-V is not a new exploit itself.
TN-V is still set to release this month, but nothing specific just yet so check back!"
62w ago - Director of Production Frank "Bo" DeWindt at Aksys Games has announced that Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward is hitting PS Vita alongside a PSN demo arriving today.
To quote: This is Frank "Bo" deWindt II of Aksys Games, but you can all call me Bo. We have a demo coming today for our upcoming PS Vita title, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward!
For those who aren't already familiar with the Zero Escape series, Virtue's Last Reward is a sequel to the critically acclaimed Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, which came out in November 2010 and received glowing accolades from IGN, as well as amazing reviews from Destructoid and Nintendo Power, among others.
Virtue's Last Reward is a visual novel-style game with puzzle elements that traps college student Sigma, a mysterious young woman named Phi, and seven other strangers in a game of life and death.
They are forced to take part in a game known as the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition, which will place their lives on the line as they try to escape and discover the truth about why they're there in the first place.
As a visual novel, Virtue's Last Reward delves heavily into story, characterization, and reading in general. However, this is balanced by the...
69w ago - Madden NFL Arcade Designer Danny Doeberling has confirmed today that Madden NFL 13 hits PS Vita on August 28th, and that fans can snap up the demo tomorrow!
To quote: My name is Danny Doeberling, and I'm a Designer on Madden NFL 13 for PS Vita. The game is launching on August 28th, but I wanted to let you know how you can get your hands on the action early with the demo, starting August 14th.
When designing Madden for PS Vita, the Dev Team set the goal of making the most complete Madden handheld experience to date, and without a doubt I feel we delivered it.
Madden NFL 13 is visually stunning on PS Vita - seeing all the superstars decked out in their brand new NFL uniforms in HD on that gorgeous OLED screen really gets you excited for football season to start.
The game is built from the Gen 3 engine, so if you are familiar with PlayStation 3, you will feel right at home here.
Our favorite part of development on this title was incorporating PS Vita's unique features. I'll just say this: you don't know how much you need the touch screen until you get it in your hands - you can use your finger to freely draw receivers' routes!
We titled this feature Call Your Shots. It's quick, it's fun, and it will make you forget about the old way of individually...
