Rain Games on The Art of Teslagrad for PS3 and PS Vita Platforms

50°
35w ago - Rain Games Developer Eduardo Garabito shared details today on the art of Teslagrad for PS3 and PS Vita platforms below.

To quote: Hi there! It's Teslagrad Minister of Propaganda, reporting again. We're going all out here, working on both the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game, and making progress.

And although it's too soon to talk about a release date (Soon enough!), it's a perfect occasion to discuss Teslagrad's art and influences - questions we've been asked repeatedly both in interviews and on our social networks.

Of course, having three different artists on the team for a "small" game ensures that there are different influences along the way. And no less important, the game's art is a core element of Teslagrad, as we rely on visuals to build a silent story.

Character animation is one of the features that jumps out at you when playing Teslagrad. In that regard, and as [Register or Login to view links] notes, we shied away from a clean, modern look for the animations for several reasons.





We knew we wanted to do the game in HD, with hand-animated characters, which is a huge task for a tiny team such as ours. We opted to do most character animations in 12 FPS...
 

Latest Minecraft PS3 Update Adds Uncharted, Killzone, Heavy Rain Skins

50°
37w ago - Mojang's Owen Hill is here with details on the latest Minecraft PS3 update, which adds Uncharted, Killzone and Heavy Rain skins.

To quote: Hi everyone. The latest update to Minecraft PS3 brings Emeralds, Ender Chests, Zombie Villagers, and more. Cauldrons fill up in the rain! Wolf collars can be dyed! Pigs drop more porkchops! The list goes on.

Two skin packs are also available. Skin Pack 1 is perfect for hardcore PlayStation fans. It brings a bunch of Sony stalwarts including Nathan "Uncharted" Drake, folks from Heavy Rain, some Killzone dudes, and Sly Cooper.

The Battle and Beasts skin pack includes koalas, a Cleopatra look-a-like, various cavemen, and an octopus. It's the most eclectic pack currently available.

For those of you who aren't content with the classic Minecraft styling, two new texture packs are also launching. The City Texture pack is perfect for the modernist Minecrafter; it'll give your creations a more clean, clinical look. The Plastic Texture pack makes things look a lot more, erm, plasticy.

That's it for now. Have fun!
 

Rain Games: Teslagrad on PS3 & PS Vita: The Secrets of Magnetism

50°
40w ago - Today Eduardo Garabito of Rain Games announced that Teslagrad is hitting PS3 and PS Vita this year with some Secrets of Magnetism detailed below.

To quote: Hi! We've wanted to write this piece for a long time. It's been great to announce Teslagrad for PS3 and PS Vita coming this year, and it's also wonderful to have this opportunity to present our game in detail.

Let's suppose that the question here is simply "Hey, what's Teslagrad about?" We've had to answer that question many, many times, and we have our response down to a science:

Teslagrad is a puzzle platformer with action elements, where magnetism and other electromagnetic powers are the key to go throughout the game, and thereby discover the secrets kept in the long abandoned Tesla Tower.

That's quite the statement. How did you like it? It's like a mantra. We just can't recall how many times we've said and/or written that. And that's why we're looking forward to this post. Now we can go into more detail. So, Teslagrad is...

Magnetism: Magnets, we know how they work! Electromagnetic forces are the lifeblood of the game, either acting as a magnetic elevator or as part of teslamancer weaponry (just to pick a couple of the many examples). Magnetic interaction allows you to not only play around as much as you...
 

Beyond: Two Souls on PlayStation 3: It's Not Another Heavy Rain

400°
63w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements shared a fresh video today announcing that Beyond: Two Souls on PlayStation 3 is not another Heavy Rain.

To quote: At first glance, Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain seem to have more in common than not. Both games focus on intricate narratives and deep character development, highlighted by cutting-edge performance capture and dazzling digital sets.

But on closer examination, Beyond: Two Souls, which launches exclusively for PS3 on October 8th, is a wholly unique creation with no obvious analogue.

For one, its sweeping story focuses on one character instead of four. Beyond: Two Souls spans an entire lifetime as it follows the trials of protagonist Jodie Holmes (Ellen Page) and her constant companion, Aiden - an invisible entity with incredible powers. For another, it features a radically different, more direct play style compared to Heavy Rain.

In our new interview, [Register or Login to view links] co-CEO Guillaume de Fondaumiere discusses the differences between the team's two latest projects, and the daunting scope of the story. Listen in for his insight on the game design process, and how Quantic Dream infused player-driven choices into a story-driven experience.



 

Video: Rain Arrives on PS3 Today, PlayStation 3 Launch Trailer Out

50°
63w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi announced that Rain arrives on PS3 today alongside a PlayStation 3 launch trailer below.

To quote: Rain will be available for purchase today on PS3 for $14.99! Also, starting today, the full soundtrack for rain will also be available for $9.99, featuring the enchanting music created by composer Yugo Kanno and the gifted singer Connie Talbot.

To celebrate the launch of rain, we played through the game LIVE here on PlayStation.Blog and on [Register or Login to view links] earlier today. We hope you enjoyed the stream, and got a better feel for rain!

It's been an amazing journey to bring the story of rain to life. Director Yuuki Ikeda initially had the idea to write a story about a boy who was invisible and could only be seen in the rain.

Inspired by an experience he had as a child where he found himself lost, the story of rain has flourished into an emotionally dynamic adventure, brought to life by the talented team at PlayStation C.A.M.P.





Thank you for supporting rain, and we hope you enjoy playing!
