19w ago - Q-Games Ltd President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert posted up a video today introducing 3 ways to create striking PS4 visuals in The Tomorrow Children on PlayStation 4.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone, before I dig into today's blog post, I wanted to invite you to tune in to tonight's Extra Life livestream at 5:00 pm PT, where I will personally guide fans through a live demo of our studio's upcoming open-world game - The Tomorrow Children.

We're really excited to participate in the Extra Life program and hope as many of you as possible can stop by to check out the first look at gameplay footage from The Tomorrow Children!

• Go here at 5:00 pm PT tonight to watch live.

But for right now, I'm going to talk a little about the tech behind The Tomorrow Children. Hopefully you've all seen the trailer and are wondering how the glory we managed to get that crazy surreal look we have.

When the project started we had a meeting with Mark Cerny and he said "I want Q-Games to do something that's a little... outside the box." So I took that to heart and decided to use the PS4's awesome compute power to drive three things: Cinematography, Lighting, and Geometry.

Cinematography

Download: PS3 Animated Theme Creator v1.01 / PS3 Animated Theme Creator v1.20

To quote, roughly translated: Hi, Today I spoke to one of your members winch03200 and he gave me an idea.

Seeing the difficulty of people to create animated themes so I decided to create a small program (which will get better) is to quickly create file "raf" to integrate with your theme.

You need 7 files you can find in the SDK 3.41 from Sony:

  • raf_geom.exe
  • raf_anim.exe
  • raf_script.exe
  • raf_pack.exe

You just select the images you want to use and choose how the theme:

  • Slide Show Displays images with a deteriorating

Video: Starhawk: How to Create an Epic Soundtrack for PS3

Video: Starhawk: How to Create an Epic Soundtrack for PS3 100°
149w ago - Starhawk Score Producer Matt Levine has posted up a video today spotlighting how to create an epic soundtrack for PS3 titles.

To quote: When Lightbox Interactive's President Dylan Jobe came to us to discuss the musical score for Starhawk, he had one of the best quotes I've ever heard from a game director:

"The music should not simulate combat; it should remind you what you're fighting for."

It is rare for so many things to come together on a project, but Starhawk has proven to be a perfect storm for creating a truly inspirational score. With a great story, a visionary developer, a brilliant composer, The Skywalker Symphony Orchestra, and a fantastic collection of soloists, we knew that this score would be something really special.

Chris Lennertz's score is bursting with character and memorable themes. Lyrical melodies soar through the orchestra, juxtaposed against feral percussion, gritty guitars, ethnic vocals and an eclectic mix of exotic wind instruments, each contributing to a score that is as memorable as it is unique.
