I've been writing a series of 'making of' articles about Velocity 2X [Register or Login to view links], and today PlayStation.Blog has kindly offered to host this particular post about the most awesome of visual effects: LENS FLARES!

Since the release of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek in 2009, people noticed just how much lens flares were synonymous with sci-fi. Carrying that baton forward, we decided to go full on J.J. Abrams crazy with on [Register or Login to view links].

Have a look at these beautiful things in our early concept art, seen just to the right of this paragraph.

Actually we were so inspired by J.J. Abrams' style of lens flares that we started talking about them all the time.

After many months of this, the inevitable abbreviations began, and what started as "J.J.Abrams style lens flares" soon became "J.J. Abrams flares" then "JAbramzFlares"...

"WUT?!" "This?...no way" "...looks indie man"... "NO WAY!"... Yes way. Now I'm gonna prove it. First up: wrap your face around our new trailer:





#LIKEABAUS - The first thing you'll want to pay attention to: AWESOME BOSS FIGHTS!

You can even fly your ship inside the bosses in order to destroy them from the inside out - on foot - brand new gameplay for the Velocity franchise. Also 360-degree shooting, tele-dashing through obstacles, throwing telepods and much more (we've hidden loads of never-before-seen footage in the trailer - go watch it again!)

Kickingass as Lt. Kai Tana looks and feels amazing - especially if you remember games like [Register or Login to view links] in terms of art style and 360-degree running and gunning.

The idea of shooting a boss in your ship,...

Video: New Velocity 2X PS4 / PS Vita Trailer Update: So Far, So Good

50°
29w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden is here with a new Velocity 2X PS4 / PS Vita trailer update which he states is coming along so far, so good!

To quote: Hi folks. Today I'm here to reveal a brand new video showing alpha footage of Velocity 2X; to talk through some of the things we've been working towards; and to outline what we're going to be adding next!

First, the video:





It's starting to look the part, but there's still a lot to do. The major thing left to do is improve the animation on the player character Lt. Kai Tana. We're working on that right now.

The art style

One of the major influences for Velocity 2X was the art style of Flashback on the Amiga. For those of you too young to have played Flashback (poor you, play the original!), it was a stunning visual achievement, using rotoscoped animation and a simple yet stylish art style to create a highly atmospheric experience. 12-year-old me fell in love with it.

Artistically speaking, we wanted Velocity 2X to be the spiritual successor to Flashback (and indeed Another World), and also to create a level of atmosphere and production value that is rarely seen in 2D games.

FuturLab Announces Velocity Ultra is Out Today on PlayStation 3

50°
41w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden announced today that Velocity Ultra is out today on PlayStation 3.

To quote: Hello folks! I'm excited to say that the multiple award-winning Velocity Ultra is available today on the mighty PlayStation 3 for just $7.49 $9.99!

At full 1080p 60fps, it's a hypnotic experience playing on a big TV, and gives the awesome soundtrack produced by [Register or Login to view links] of Killzone fame a chance to shine too!

Developed and published by the talented team at Curve Studios, Velocity Ultra on PS3 is a perfect conversion that feels great on DualShock 3.

Me confirming that the PS3 version is indeed awesome. What, you've never heard of it?

Those of you not familiar with Velocity Ultra should know that it combines shoot 'em-up action, speed runs and cunning spatial puzzles in a way never seen before, and this combination of clever mechanics and no nonsense fun delighted pretty much everyone that came into contact with it on PS Vita.

So we're incredibly excited that Velocity Ultra is now a full PS3 title which includes perhaps (actually, definitely) the best titled platinum trophy ever: 'Show Thumb Respect.'

Teleporting ahead... With a host of 9/10 review scores from the likes of Edge Magazine...
