750°
2w ago - Today Sony is offering a free PS4 Dynamic Theme for those who preorder the PlayStation Heroes application, which allows users to play video games with celebrities.

To quote from DualShockers.com (linked at the top of this article): "If you want a new PS4 theme for free, all you have to do is to pre-order the PlayStation Heroes app, through which it will be possible to purchase other themes for charity.

The app itself is free, and will be available on February 24th. By pre-ordering it, the free PS4 theme will immediately added to your download list.

The theme has an animated background, but no music or custom sounds. Yet, it's quite elegant (and the animated system icons are definitely spiffy), it's promoting a good cause, and its free, so what's not to love?

You can check out two screenshots of the theme above and below."


 

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.

Download: PS4 Themes Preview Screens

To quote: "Today Sony Computer Entertainment released a whopping 31 new themes for the PS4 on the PlayStation Store.
