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

1d 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 our artist Ole 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

3w 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°
5w 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...

21w ago - Spearhead Games Co-founder Simon Darveau shared a video today announcing that Tiny Brains is launching on December 3rd for PlayStation 4.

To quote: Hi! It's Simon from Spearhead Games, here again to talk about our upcoming PS4 co-op puzzler Tiny Brains. We finished our very last updates earlier this week, and we're finally done - it feels so weird to write that after Tiny Brains consumed my entire life for more than a year, but it's true.

The whole team is incredibly proud to be bringing Tiny Brains to PS4 on December 3rd. Thanks to PlayStation's support of indies, we were given the option to be featured on PlayStation Plus for the launch - it was an opportunity we couldn't pass up!

So look out for Tiny Brains soon, and in the meantime, I wanted to share our brand new launch trailer, and tell you a bit about how we're trying to get you back in the living room for some old school co-op with a next-gen twist.

When I was a kid, one of the best feelings in the world was getting a new game and rushing home to call my friends to come over and play. Crowded together in front of the screen, all excited to game late into the night; elbowing for room on the couch, gloating and swapping tips - these things are what gave me a lifelong love of video games.

The launch of...
