Video: Sony Announces Metrico, a New PS Vita Pub Fund Exclusive

100°
101w ago - Sony Digital Dreams Level Designer Roy van de Mortel has announced Metrico today, a new PS Vita Pub Fund exclusive!

Below are the details, to quote: Dear readers, we are Roy, Geert and Thijmen, soon to be known as Digital Dreams.

As you've probably never heard of us, a short introduction might be in order. We're from the Netherlands and we share a building with other game developers like Ronimo (Awesomenauts) and Vlambeer (Super Crate Box). We have a short history in AAA development but quickly found out that we wanted to start our own company and work on our own projects.

As a small indie company we strive to create elegant and meaningful experiences in the form of downloadable console games. With that said, we are very proud and super excited to finally announce Metrico, a unique PS Vita exclusive!

Metrico centers around infographics, as you might have noticed from the teaser above. It's an atmospheric puzzle action game that strives to create a unique mindset of its own. The idea has been in our heads for a few years, and was born out of noticing how beautiful infographics can look as an art form.




It was reinforced by seeing that infographics...

101w ago - DrinkBox Studios COO Graham Smith posted up some new videos today confirming that Guacamelee body slams PS3 and PS Vita on April 9, 2013.

To quote: We're excited to finally announce our launch date and pricing details for Guacamelee! The game will be released on April 9th in the Americas, and will support Cross-Buy for $14.99.

This means you buy the game once and get both the PS3 and PS Vita versions. And that's not all... there's also a Platinum Trophy!

With GDC being this week, and the IGF award nomination for "Excellence in Visual Art," we also thought it would be cool to share some early concept art and video footage of the game, so that you can see for yourself how much things have changed. As you can see, Guacamelee! has really come a long way visually since its inception.

We began working on Guacamelee! in February of 2011. For the first two months, the game existed solely as a PowerPoint presentation and some concept art. Here's the very first screenshot mock-up of the game from that presentation:




We brought these materials and another game idea with us to GDC to gauge publisher interest in the two titles. Guacamelee! was clearly the more popular of the two ideas, and after...
 

LittleBigPlanet PS Vita: Marvel Arcade Pack is Coming Next Week

101w ago - LittleBigPlanet Community Coordinator Steven Isbell has confirmed today that the LittleBigPlanet PS Vita Marvel Arcade Pack is coming next week.

Below are the details, as follows: For those of you eagerly salivating over new adventures for Sackboy on the PS Vita... well, you need drool no longer! We are delighted to announce a brand new game add-on for LittleBigPlanet PS Vita; the Marvel - Arcade Pack!

The Marvel - Arcade Pack contains three fantastic new games, each of which will challenge you in very different ways. In Hero Rush, you'll team up with three of your favourite Marvel heroes - such as Iron Man, Spider-Man, or Thor - and try to survive for as long as you can.

Shoot for high score heroics by avoiding plasma beams, rockets, and all sorts of obstacular trickery. Of course, obstacular isn't a real word, but you should never let a dictionary get in the way of your Marvel heroics!

In the mind-bending puzzler Avengers: Ultimate Escape guide several Marvel heroes, including Hulk, Captain America and many more, through a deadly maze. The cool thing about this game is that the challenges you face will be completely different depending on the hero you choose!

And last, but by no means least, we have S.H.I.E.L.D. - Interceptor! Take control of the Quinjet...
