Spry Fox Announces Road Not Taken is Playable at PAX East 2014

13w ago - Spry Fox CEO David Edery announced today that Road Not Taken is playable at PAX East this year.

Below are the details, to quote: (This post is about Road Not Taken, Spry Fox's upcoming roguelike for the PS4 & PS Vita. If this is your first time hearing about RNT, check out our trailers [Register or Login to view links]!)

PAX East is nearly upon us! We will be there, and for the first time ever, be making a playable demo of Road Not Taken publicly available for all to enjoy!

This may have triggered a wee bit of panic in our studio.

Suddenly, all the little bugs we've been ignoring demand attention. That crash that occasionally happens during the first mission? Must-fix! Slow loading times? Speed those suckers up!

Aside from fixing a boatload of bugs, we've also been spending a lot of time tweaking the first mission of the game, since that's what most people will experience at PAX.

Initially, we didn't worry about it much. After all, we have a tutorial that we've revised at least a dozen times. The first mission just has to be "relatively easy" and all will be well, right? Nope.

While the core mechanic of Road Not Taken is relatively simple, there are dozens of unusual objects and creatures you encounter in...

Lately, we've been doing a ton of playtesting of Road Not Taken, particularly with fellow game developers. (If you're ever looking for brutally honest feedback, other game developers are a good place to start.)

In general, the feedback has been pretty positive: people love the game's basic mechanics, art and audio. But one big issue repeatedly crept up in many of our playtests: people weren't sensing the depth of the game and weren't feeling a strong sense of progression. This post is all about how we've been fixing that.

I like to think of Road Not Taken as an iceberg floating in the ocean: a tiny percentage of the total game is visible above the surface when you first start playing, while the vast majority of the game lies unseen, waiting to be discovered.

A large part of that depth comes from all the unusual creatures and objects you can encounter as you explore the enchanted forests of the game. Another large...
 

Road to The Show: The Evolution Continues in MLB 14 The Show

16w ago - MLB The Show Designer Kirby St John announced today that the evolution continues in MLB 14 The Show in his Road to The Show video below.

To quote: Hey everyone, I'm Kirby St. John, a designer with the [Register or Login to view links] development team. My main focus year-to-year is improving and evolving one of our most popular modes, Road to The Show.

The mode made some big strides last year, especially in terms of gameplay and presentation, but for MLB 14, we really wanted to focus on the logic and systems that govern the mode in an effort to allow for more variety and less restrictions.

We also wanted to provide some new experiences never seen before in RTTS. The video touched on a lot of topics, but in this blog I will expand on what was introduced there and discuss some of the exciting things that were only briefly mentioned.
