56w ago - Playerthree Creative Director David Streek has introduced Chronovolt: a Steampunk Platformer for PS Vita today with a video trailer below!
To quote: Hi everyone. David from Playerthree here, to tell you about Chronovolt - our new PS Vita game debuting on the PlayStation Plus service next week.
Our aim with Chronovolt was to bring a challenging platform adventure to PS Vita, whilst making use of its unique touch interfaces and gyroscopic controls.
From the start, we had a steampunk theme in our heads that could allow us to create worlds and characters with strange machines and futuristic sources of energy. HG Wells' classic sci-fi novel, The Time Machine, was a definite source of inspiration.
A time manipulation concept not only allowed us to jump between very different settings, but was also a perfect fit for the Vita's touch controls, allowing players to manipulate time with their fingers.
On a technical level, we'd also been developing a 'rolling ball' engine to exploit the gyroscopic controls. It seemed a lot more fun than driving Wells' 'time sled' around and, besides, the Daleks had the whole coaster-based-time-travel area...
233w ago - Today Damnation shared a great looking Steampunk PS3 Mod for all to appreciate, envy and respect.
Created with the importance of the warranty in mind, all additions, changes and items were added to the outside of the PS3, as to keep the warranty intact and ready for use (just in case).
To quote: The PS3 began with a wood veneer and then grew with outside attachments including: an old radio valve, a pipe valve, a pressure gauge, assorted brass plumbing parts and some trim. The wood veneer was then aged with a few coats of varnish.
The final look of this PlayStation Mod is a Steampunk style that is not overly done.
It does grant the PS3 its own theme, uniqueness and amazing finish and is definitely something I would wish for as my Playstation gaming console.
