Pillar on PS4: New PlayStation 4 Trailer, Soundtrack Released

250°
2d ago - Idea Factory International's David Alonzo revealed a new PlayStation 4 trailer video and soundtrack for Pillar on PS4 today with details below.

To quote: Pillar is a collection of minigames, where each game represents a different type of personality that we find in people. You can read about some of the inspirations for the game on my first PS.Blog post, but today I have a couple of exciting new things to share with you!

First, we've released a trailer for the game you can view below. Hopefully this gives you a feel for how the game will play, and adds context to the "telling a 'story' through gameplay mechanics" idea I touched on in the last post.

Primarily you could say Pillar is a puzzle game, but there are elements of stealth, strategy and exploration sprinkled throughout the different games/characters.





The next bit of news I have is that we've released the soundtrack for Pillar! The music is a very important part of the game. Since I was in the rare position of being both the musician and designer, I took extra care to make sure the music and gameplay are cohesive.

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

50°
117w 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...

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.
