21w ago - Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Paul Sullivan announced today as part of their PlayStation Mobile update that Hermit Crab in Space has officially launched today.
To quote: Every Tuesday, there are new games, apps and updates added to PlayStation Mobile. Hermit Crab in Space, our 2013 Game Jam winner, released last night along with six other new games. There are also updates to four games and price changes to four games.
Hermit Crab in Space by Golden Ruby Games ($2.79)
Hermit Crab in Space is a modular space shooter with a crustacean flare for PlayStation Mobile. Players take control of a hermit crab who warped herself to the wrong sector.
To get her back home, the player will have to fight their way through a galaxy of hostile sectors in an improvised ship that is never more than a few hits away from falling apart. Hermit Crab in Space was the 2013 winner of the PlayStation Mobile Game Jam. Check out this video about the Game Jam:

31w ago - Frapefrukt Games' Martin Jonasson showcased Rymdkapsel today, covering the minimalist space strategy and you with details below.
To quote: A year ago, I started making a game about a space station. I wanted to make a game that had all the fun parts of an RTS but none of the fiddly, stressful bits. The more I removed, the better the game became and that's how Rymdkapsel came into being.
Rymdkapsel is a game about building your station; imagine a real time strategy game where you don't have to worry about ever leaving the cozy comforts of your home base.
It's not all smooth sailing though, when your base grows bigger as does your need for space and resources. All this expansion will surely attract the attention of the dreaded enemy. This leaves you with the task of balancing your quest for expansion with the safety of a small, tight, structure.
The philosophy of less is more goes on right through the entire game. This idea of removing-to-make-better isn't a new one for sure, it's something I've been exploring in many prototypes for years.
I've made a one button dungeon crawler (glorg), an implementation of Tetris that only requires one dimensional touch input and a crazy tower defense that lets you skip around in time to get to the fun bits faster.
44w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill has answered some popular fan questions on the upcoming Dead Space 3 video game for the PS3 console.
Below is the FAQ, as follows: A couple weeks ago, we asked you for Dead Space 3 questions, which we'd forward along to Visceral Games for a future Q&A.
Starting at 12:01AM Pacific time tonight, you'll be able to download the game on PSN in North America, and it will be available at retail tomorrow, so we think now's a good time to revisit that.
You mobilized and responded to our request in full force, so we had plenty to ask about when we tracked down John Calhoun, Associate Producer of Dead Space 3. When we finally caught up with him, we threatened dismemberment politely asked him a few of the questions you had, and he was happy to oblige.
Read on to find out how Visceral kept co-op scary, what Isaac's new locomotive abilities mean for the game, and what kinds of new horrors you'll face when Dead Space 3 launches tomorrow.
56w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared a Dead Space 3 interview with fans today announcing that the Sci-fi Survival Horror Multiplayer game is getting a make-over.
Below are the details, to quote: Next February sees the release of the third main entry in EA's critically lauded sci-fi survival horror series, Dead Space.
While the first two games followed very similar templates, the latest installment really mixes things up by introducing full co-op play to the main campaign.
The optional drop-in, drop-out multiplayer lets a second player join in the story as new character Sergeant John Carver. While the game is fully playable as a solo experience, if you play with friend you'll have an expanded story and get to experience a number of extra sequences and set-pieces.
We sat down with the game's producer Steve Papoutsis to find out how - and why - developer Visceral Games has implemented this new system and what fans of the series can expect from reluctant hero Isaac Clarke's latest adventure.
