Surgeon Simulator is Out Now on PlayStation 4, Gets Co-op Play

50°
2w ago - Sony Community Manager Poppy Byron announced today that Surgeon Simulator is out now on PlayStation 4 and includes co-op play!

To quote: January 28, 2013. That was the day we put the first build of a silly little game jam project onto the Internet for anyone to play.

It was a run of the mill game jam project for me, and my fellow teammates, James Broadley, Jack Good and Luke Williams. But the aftermath saw our little medical-themed toy turn into a real grown-up full game.

The development process of [Register or Login to view links] has been like a constant game jam. We would implement our ideas without a second thought to the game's overall design.

Leaving little details like balancing damage levels and timings until later, just concentrating on what we thought would be cool or fun for the majority of time. For example, once the game was in full production, one of the features I remember implementing first was the notepad in the reception that you can draw on, not exactly essential for the game but fun to make.

This kind of unplanned structureless attitude has continued throughout the entire project. It's an extremely fun way of developing. It has its caveats and wouldn't...

3w ago - Community Manager Poppy Byron confirmed today that the Surgeon Simulator Anniversary Edition hits PS4 on August 12th, 2014.

To quote: We are delighted, happy, excited - all of the good words - to announce that [Register or Login to view links] is almost here.

On August 12th, we're going to unleash it on the PS4 in North America and then stand back and marvel as the universe changes.





In all seriousness, we know that you're thinking. You've seen this game before, you've watched a million YouTube Let's Plays, and you've maybe even dressed as a surgeon or nurse in your free time to hone your surgical skills. Perhaps you even sent us photographs. So this A & E edition - what's different?

We had a lot of feedback from our fans about the operations we released exclusively on iPad. Many didn't have iPads, and wanted to be able to complete the new eye and teeth transplants. They were sad. This made us sad.

There was only one solution: the A & E edition. This version of the game contains all of the best parts from the Steam and iPad release all in one convenient...
 

Sony Announces Surgeon Simulator PS4 is Coming to PlayStation 4

11w ago - Sony Community Manager Poppy Byron announced today that Surgeon Simulator Coming PS4 is coming to PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: When we first heard that the new generation consoles were arriving, we were super excited about the possibility that the game - OUR game - could be one of the titles available for PS4 owners to enjoy.

There was one problem, though: how on Earth were we going to get the infamous controls to work on DualShock4?

Would the game look good on a next-gen console in a living room?

Would it still be funny? Would Bob be as dashingly handsome on a big screen?

So many questions... we had to try. It turned out that creating a control scheme for Nigel's arm on PS4 was one of the most enjoyable parts of the process.

The first and most obvious step to take was to map hand movement and hand rotation to the left and right thumb sticks, as this is what players tend to expect on a console game. The finger controls were less obvious.

We had a lot of ideas which turned out to be a bit too clumsy even for Surgeon Simulator. In the end we decided to lose the one-button-per-finger design used on the PC and instead condense it down into just two of the shoulder buttons.

The most exciting part was when we started...
 

PlayStation Plus: Puppeteer, Surge Deluxe Free for PS Plus Members

100°
14w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer is here with this weeks PlayStation Plus content updates, which include Puppeteer and Surge Deluxe free for PS Plus members!

To quote: Puppeteer is a stunning adventure starring a boy named Kutaro, who unfortunately gets turned into a puppet and then has his head removed. Tough break.

As you make your way home, you'll collect heads from other sources (not sure why there are a bunch of heads lying around, but y'know), which serve as collectibles and your health bar.

Color-match games can be quite addictive, and Surge Deluxe on PS Vita is no exception. As you clear out blocks of the same color by dragging your finger across Vita's touchscreen, you'll also be racing against the pressure building in the surrounding pipes. If you don't vent the pipes by clearing out blocks, it's game over. Don't worry though, you can always try again.

You can download Puppeteer and Surge Deluxe after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, May 20th.

Puppeteer (PS3)
Free for PS Plus members

One dark moonlit night, a young boy named Kutaro was carried away by the maleficent Moon Bear King to a black castle where the unlucky lad was transformed into a puppet. Kutaro displeased the terrible tyrant, who devoured...
