Video: PlayStation Mobile Spotlight: Monster Hotel is Now Available

50°
48w ago - XMPT Games Developer Luke Staddon announced today alongside a video that Monster Hotel is now available as part of their PlayStation Mobile spotlight.

To quote: I'm Luke, from XMPT Games: a small, five-person indie development studio based in Southampton, England. We've been together as a company for less than a year, and are best known for our PS Mobile release, Penguin Party.

We started XMPT Games because we all love playing games and we wanted to start releasing our own. We had all dabbled in various aspects of game development, and decided that it would be fun to see what we could create by working together.

We love taking part in game jams - pitting our design, coding and graphics skills to the test against a time limit - so for our second PS Mobile title we decided to run our own internal game jam.

Picking the theme of the game ourselves just didn't seem in the spirit of game jamming, so we put out a request on our Facebook page for people to suggest topics around which we could base our game.

We ended up with about 50 different responses, and the next day we threw all of the suggestions into a hat and picked one out at random. The winner was "Harmony".

After discussing a whole bunch of ideas, we eventually settled on the concept for Monster...

Sony PlayStation Mobile Spotlight: Switch Galaxy is Showcased

100°
81w ago - Atomicom Managing Director Gary Nichols showcased Switch Galaxy today for PlayStation Mobile with details below.

To quote: As with many games industry developers of a certain age I grew up with the classics: Atari 2600, Commodore 64 etc. with my very first gaming experience being on a Binatone with Pong.

One game that was always a favourite of mine was Dodge-em from the Atari 2600 which I would play for hours and hours. It was so frustrating at times, especially when it got quick, but that made me really want to beat it even more.

Back in 2011 we'd just finished development of [Register or Login to view links] and while thinking what we should do next, I thought about creating a 3D title that paid homage to Dodge-em.

So we started work and soon came to the conclusion that it was going to take way too long and be too difficult to make it enjoyable in full 3D, so we simply just got rid of the turns and made it straight instead.

We ended up with Switch, a mobile game that has gone on to be downloaded 1.7m times so far, which was so awesome considering it was a very simple endless runner that took six weeks to make. Even though it was simple, people loved it...

Here Comes a New Challenger

PlayStation All-Stars' EVO showing included a chance to sample newly announced characters Heihachi and Toro.

But despite his adorable appearance and goofy combat style, Toro is no lightweight. He's...
