203w ago - Last week the London Pub was delayed due to a bug, but SCEE's Home Community Lead Alex Weekes has announced that it's back this week alongside some Savage Moon furniture in this week's PlayStation Home update.
To quote: Coming to PlayStation Home this week is a range of Savage Moon themed furniture for your personal space. Featuring in the range is a table formed from the legs of an Insectocyte, which will be perfectly matched by the rug stitched from Insectocyte sinew.
Light them both with the lamp, then sit back and relax in your choice of Bean Bag or Gun Turret Lazy Boy. Or maybe both! Each item is priced at €0.99.
The London Pub returns tomorrow. Visit Home Estates to get your own personal London Pub, and become a virtual pub landlord. Priced at €4.99, the London Pub offers a warm fire and comedy beer pumps - and more! - all in a setting on the Thames that overlooks the Houses of Parliament.
Gather your friends and challenge them to a few darts matches with the included multiplayer Darts game. You'll need the practice, as you could win one of 30 genuine Eclipse Pro Dartboards courtesy of VeeMee and Unicorn!...
207w ago - SCEA Producer Daimion Pinnock has revealed that Savage Moon: The Hera Campaign is hitting PSP this month, and shared a video as follows:
I'm pleased to say that Savage Moon: The Hera Campaign will be released via PSN on December 22nd. For more info, here's my colleagues at Fluffy Logic:
Hello - I'm Ana, the producer of Savage Moon here at Fluffy Logic in Bristol, UK.
We're really excited by the PSP version of the game and myself and the rest of the development team has spent the last few months pouring our energy into the game and we're very pleased with the result - and we hope you will be too!
If you haven't played Savage Moon before; it's a real-time, tower defense game pitting you (the humans) against hordes of chitinous, carnivorous, bug-like creatures called Insectocytes who are the immune system of living planets (called Imoons) the humans are trying to mine.
The Hera campaign is the third project we've done - following on from the PS3 release and the Waldgeist expansion pack...
217w ago - Today SCEA Producer Daimion Pinnock has announced that Savage Moon: The Hera Campaign is coming to Sony's PSP console, as follows:
I'm pleased to inform you that you will now have a chance to take Savage Moon on the go as it will now be available on the PSP! Savage Moon: The Hera Campaign will feature new gameplay and content galore.
For more details, here are my colleagues at FluffyLogic:
Hello - this is Ana (the producer) and Tom (the designer) from FluffyLogic again (you can read our last blog-post's for Sony here & here). We would like to tell you about the latest developments in the Savage Moon universe: the Insectocytes have invaded the PSP!
For the last few months FluffyLogic personnel have been toiling away in an underground bunker to produce the mobile incarnation of the game: Savage Moon: The Hera Campaign - featuring new weapons, new bugs, news maps and new gameplay.
For those new to the game, Savage Moon is a tower defense strategy game which launched on PS3 last winter. The game pits the player (humans), who is trying to mine valuable minerals from sentient asteroids or Imoons, against massive chitinous, armoured bugs called 'Insectocytes'.
As the humans burrow into the ground, the Imoon produces its own auto-immune response...
226w ago - Fluffy Logic's Producer Ana Kronschnabl has announced news that a Savage Moon PS3 update and expansion is now available on PSN.
To quote: We wanted to say a big thanks to those of you who have taken the trouble to email us with feedback, ideas and suggestions.
Where possible we have incorporated some of your ideas into the new update of the game, now available. Amongst other things, the update includes:
• Re-balancing of the stats, including an upgraded Amp Tower with stats more similar to the first release of the game. Other tweaks to the stats make level 4 a bit more forgiving.
• A new 'Training Mode' that allows all the levels to be played as before, but the overall gameplay is a bit easier (but you can't save these scores to the high-score table).
• We have added custom soundtrack support, so you can blast Insectocytes to the tunes of your choice.
We would also like to tell you a bit more about the new expansion for Savage Moon - Waldgeist. If you are wondering, the name is German and translates as 'woodland spirit' and in pagan times Waldgeists (is that the plural?) were believed to be the custodians of the forest. As the new levels in...
253w ago - Today Fluffy Logic Producer Ana Kronschnabl shared some background on Savage Moon, which is due for release on the PlayStation Network store tomorrow as follows:
For the last few months we've been hard at work on our take on the Tower Defense genre. Although here in the UK we spell it 'defence' ;-).
If you've not played any tower defence games, you're missing out. They are a great off-shoot of real-time strategy games where the player can only build static defences and the enemy is the one on the move. Our art director, Stuart, introduced us to a few of the games on the net and needless to say, work around the office dropped to zero as we got hooked.
At the time we had been given a couple of PS3 development kits by Sony to play around with and we thought, "Wow, we'd love to do our own take on this." We threw around a few ideas then went up to see Sony and surprisingly enough, it turned out that they had been thinking exactly the same thing.
Thus Savage Moon, our first game for the PS3, was born. It is due for release on the PlayStation Network store this week for $9.99...we're very excited.
First off we wanted to give the game a bit of a story. All the tower...
