Voofoo Studios Announces Pure Chess is Out This April 15th on PS4

3d ago - Voofoo Studios Creative Producer Shaun Read officially announced today that Pure Chess is out this April 15th on PS4 with details below.

To quote: You can literally smell the excitement here at VooFoo towers, and it's not (only) due to the lack of personal hygiene time we've had as of late. We've teamed up with publisher Ripstone to bring you our latest, greatest version of Pure Chess, which hits PS4 tomorrow. And we're extremely proud of our baby.

If you don't know who we are, VooFoo Studios is a small team of passionate developers based in sunny Birmingham, right in the heart of England. We've always prided ourselves on making highly playable, photo-realistic games, and thanks to the power of the PS4 hardware we've been able to turn the dial up to eleven.

Displayed at 1080p and running at a silky-smooth 60 frames per second, Pure Chess on PS4 is a visual tour-de-force. We've doubled the texture sizes, added many extra layers of post-processing, added contact shadows, and applied ultra-realistic depth-of-field... which is a rather boring way of saying that this is a seriously good looking chess game! Couple this with a massively improved custom networking system to provide a much slicker online experience and we're confident you'll love Pure Chess just as much as we do.

Video: Pure Pool for PS4: Bring the Pool Hall Home on PlayStation 4

18w ago - Voofoo Studios Creative Producer Shaun Read shared a video announcing that Pure Pool for PS4 brings the pool hall home on PlayStation 4.

To quote: VooFoo has been building quite a reputation for bringing you gorgeous looking games, and today is no exception with the announcement of our latest labor of love: Pure Pool for PS4.

Over the years we've worked hard to create visually stunning games. From the the critically acclaimed Hustle Kings, winner of Kotaku's 'Best Downloadable Sports Game of the Year' award, to the visual tour-de-force that is Pure Chess, the most realistic looking chess videogame you'll ever play; we certainly like our games to make jaws drop here at VooFoo.

We like our pool games here at Voofoo, so when Ripstone approached us with the opportunity to develop one for Sony's new hardware, we jumped at the chance.





Forget everything you know about pool games, because we're taking Pure Pool to a whole other dimension! This game will bring a living, breathing, connected Pool Hall to your living room. By now, you know we enjoy pushing hardware to the limit to create photo-realistic games.

Well, using the immense power of PS4, we're...

98w ago - VooFoo Studios Game Designer Tam Finlay has announced today that Pure Chess will be out tomorrow for both PS3 and PS Vita platforms with details below.

To quote: Enough with shooting people in the face. Instead, how about a game that requires mental agility, smart reactions and tactical planning while also bringing you an air of sophistication?

That is exactly what we set out to achieve with Pure Chess, which brings the beauty and intellectual depth of one of the world's oldest, and greatest games to PS Vita and PS3 tomorrow.

If you've never played chess before, Pure Chess will teach you everything you need to know from basics to advanced techniques. If you think of yourself as a bit of a chess master, match your wits against our AI. There are 10 difficulty levels to choose from, and a chess Grandmaster verified the top levels.

It's great fun trying to improve your skills against the finely tuned AI, but winning against your friends and family is even sweeter!

So for those of you who feel like flexing your chess prowess against others, you can take on another player in a local two-player game or challenge your PSN friends to an asynchronous Play by Mail game.

This means you don't need to set aside a big...
