Video: Datura's Hidden Meaning, Free Soundtrack Hits PSN Today

96w ago - Plastic Studios Game Director Michal Staniszewski has unveiled a video spotlighting Datura's Hidden Meaning, and has confirmed the free soundtrack hits PSN today.

To quote: It's been a while since we launched Datura exclusively on PSN, and lately I've been wondering if anyone had deciphered the true meaning of the game.

In many interviews with the press, I've said that Datura is open for interpretation and that it depicts visions of what happens after you die.

This was true, but I never spoke about the deeper layer of interpretation that connects the scenes. Every madness has its explanation, and Datura is no exception.

Reading through the reviews I found that many people got lost in the forest and the fog that surrounds it. Overwhelmed by the decisions and their consequences, it became difficult to recognize the small details that we scattered throughout the storyline. On the surface, Datura can seem random but there is a connection that ties it all together.

For every game there's always a small group of players that demands a challenge. Most often it's represented with an increased difficulty curve, thus it's attached directly to the gameplay.

But sometimes the challenge concerns the content, and that's why I decided to look at fan...
 

Video: FuturLab's Velocity for PSN - The Soundtrack Story Detailed

113w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden has shared some video footage today spotlighting the soundtrack story details of Velocity for PSN.

To quote: Our new game [Register or Login to view links] has been out for a couple of weeks now, and we're delighted with the reception.

We've had superb reviews, so today I'm going to reveal how Velocity's soundtrack came to be, and how it's absolutely essential that you don't give up on something you believe in, ever.

MUSIC

When I was little (7 or 8), I used to tinker on the piano. I couldn't read music, but I could work out how to play a tune after hearing it a couple of times. I used to practice and practice until I had it mastered. I spent a good deal of my younger years messing about with toy keyboards, writing little songs and playing them to people.

However, in secondary school, I infuriated my music teacher because she was trying to skim through many different practical exercises, and all I wanted to do was get the first exercise mastered.

When she mentioned that I was disrupting the class to my parents, I became very insecure about it, and ultimately stopped doing it, deciding that I was actually no good at music after all.



 

Video: Starhawk: How to Create an Epic Soundtrack for PS3

118w ago - Starhawk Score Producer Matt Levine has posted up a video today spotlighting how to create an epic soundtrack for PS3 titles.

To quote: When [Register or Login to view links]'s President Dylan Jobe came to us to discuss the musical score for Starhawk, he had one of the best quotes I've ever heard from a game director:

"The music should not simulate combat; it should remind you what you're fighting for."

It is rare for so many things to come together on a project, but Starhawk has proven to be a perfect storm for creating a truly inspirational score. With a great story, a visionary developer, a brilliant composer, The Skywalker Symphony Orchestra, and a fantastic collection of soloists, we knew that this score would be something really special.

Chris Lennertz's score is bursting with character and memorable themes. Lyrical melodies soar through the orchestra, juxtaposed against feral percussion, gritty guitars, ethnic vocals and an eclectic mix of exotic wind instruments, each contributing to a score that is as memorable as it is unique.





At its core, the story is a classic western tale of two brothers torn apart by a tragic event....
