The Three Teams and Extra Coffee Behind Unmechanical: Extended

50°
2w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska shared a video today showcasing the three teams and extra coffee behind Unmechanical: Extended for PS4 and PS3 platforms.

To quote: Hi, it's Jakub from Grip Games. This week, we launched Unmechanical: Extended for PS4 and PS3.

Just like the story of the game, even the development has been a difficult journey full of puzzles and problems. This post-mortem article maps what we think went right and wrong during the development, and what has shaped Unmechanical: Extended into what it is today.




Unmechanical started its life as a PC game, developed by Talawa Games and Teotl Studios. At Grip Games, we have a long history of working with other game developers and bringing their games to consoles - The Impossible Game being the best-known among them.

But Unmechanical was a completely different beast - created using an AAA engine, bigger than any other game we have made up until then and with a dedicated fan base that would eat us alive if we messed it up. Developing Unmechanical: Extended was really like getting sucked into a dangerous underground world looking for a way to see the daylight again.

What Went Right

Plex App is Now Available for PlayStation 3 and PS4 Platforms, Details

550°
10w ago - Today the Plex application is officially released for PlayStation 3 and PS4 console platforms, although it currently is only available through Sony's European and Asian PSN Stores with more details below.

To quote: Plex: Now on Sega Genesis! Just Kidding, PS3 and PS4

Just over two months ago, we launched Plex for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 with great fanfare and a bevy of Barkley photos. And much rejoicing.

The very next day, Mr. lm_92 (presumably his dad worked for Texas Instruments) created a feature request in the Plex Pass member forum asking for a Plex app for the PlayStation 4. Since then, his request has been voted on almost one thousand times, and rocketed to become the number one request. Ever.

We noticed this meteoric rise just a week ago, and - jolted out of our usual slack-jawed complacency - we set ourselves up with some intravenous caffeine drips and coded for three days straight. In less time than it took to create, well, the Universe, we had the app running on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, so we took the rest of the week off and played a bunch of hacky sack.

OK, in all honesty, it did take us a bit longer than that. Like, we actually...
