1w ago - Grimm Bros Co-founder Ash Monif detailed the first missions today in Dragon Fin Soup on PS3, PS4 and PS Vita platforms for fans alongside a video below.

To quote: Hello everyone! First of all, we want to thank you all for the warm welcome we received last time when we announced our game for PlayStation! You're a great community and we're happy to join it.

For those who have missed our last announcement, we are Grimm Bros, a small indie team of five developers working on Dragon Fin Soup, a classic RPG with Roguelike elements.

We're back, all amped up, motivated, and eager to share our latest news with you. Right now we're crazy busy getting ready for PAX East, where we'll have a booth, cosplayers, and a playable demo for people to try out.

Today we'd like to share with you a longer gameplay video with commentary by Randis to talk about more of the details and nuances of the gameplay and world of Dragon Fin Soup. As we point out in the video, the footage is from an Alpha build and some of the gameplay elements and UI may be subject to change.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is Coming to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita in 2014

28w ago - WayForward Creative Director Matt Bozon confirmed that Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is coming to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita platforms in 2014.

To quote: Next year, WayForward is bringing the highly animated action adventure series Shantae to PS3, PS4, and PS Vita in the form of a brand new game: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero!

Since there's a good chance you're hearing about Shantae for the first time, here's a bit of background. Shantae is the name of the half-genie main character who carves through enemies with her destructive ponytail, and belly dances to transform into mythological creatures, animals, swords... and well, pretty much anything. There aren't many games that include the art of sensual dance as a main game mechanic, but Shantae pulls it off nicely.

The gameplay is best compared to Super Metroid or Castlevania Symphony of the Night, but with the visual styling of WayForward's own Ducktales: Remastered. WayForward puts its traditional feature film style animation in the front row along side rock solid gameplay, which has its roots firmly planted in the 8 and 16 bit era of classic gaming. WayForward's engine moves the...
 

Cosmic Star Heroine Coming to PS4, VVVVVV is Hitting PS Vita

50°
32w ago - Today Zeboyd Games Lead Designer Robert Boyd announced that Retro Sci-fi RPG Cosmic Star Heroine is coming to PS4 and PS Vita alongside VVVVVV to PlayStation Vita as well.

To quote: We here at the two-man development studio known as Zeboyd Games are pleased to announce that our next RPG, Cosmic Star Heroine, will be coming out on PS4 and PS Vita next year! And to go along with that announcement, here's our Sega-CD inspired opening video for our game! Enjoy!

A very special thanks to Dean Dodrill (Dust: An Elysian Tail) who helped out with effects and animation, as well as Chris Geehan and Dan Byrne-McCullough over at Hyperduck (who did the music for our last RPG) for helping make that video go to 11! And of course, our own Bill Stiernberg, who handled the brunt of the work!

Cosmic Star Heroine is our latest attempt to recapture the feel of some of the classic RPGs of the 90s, while putting our own unique spin on the whole experience. Inspired by games like Chrono Trigger (visual style, on-map battles, combo techniques), the Phantasy Star series (overall feel of the worlds and characters), and the Suikoden series (political intrigue, expandable player headquarters), we can't wait to share Cosmic Star Heroine with you!



 

Spry Fox: Road Not Taken is Coming to PS4 and PS Vita in 2014

32w ago - Spry Fox CEO David Edery announced today that roguelike puzzle game Road Not Taken is coming to PS4 and PS Vita in 2014 alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: Hi folks! It's an honor to be posting here for the first time. I'm the co-founder of a studio called Spry Fox.

We've made some well-known mobile and PC games such as Steambirds, Triple Town, and Realm of the Mad God. I'm super excited to announce that our next title - an original puzzle game called Road Not Taken - will be launching on PS4 and PS Vita in early 2014!

Road Not Taken is a game about life's surprises, both positive and negative. In our take on Robert Frost's poem of the same name, you wander through a mysterious forest in the aftermath of a large snowstorm.

As you explore, you'll come across wild animals, impassable barriers, and lost children. Road Not Taken explores the question: "What happens when life's events throw you off the path you expected to take?" It's been a lot of fun for us to try and stretch the ideas that games can tackle!

In terms of gameplay, you can think of Road Not Taken as a puzzle roguelike.

You can play for dozens of hours, and no two sessions will ever be quite alike.
Each game is full of unexpected surprises and dangers,...
