Alien Spidy on PSN: The Creation of a Character By Engima

50°
127w ago - Engima Software CEO Daniel Parente has detailed the creation of a character in Alien Spidy on PSN today.

Below are the details, to quote: One of the key factors for a game to be successful revolves around the charisma and empathy of the lead character, a task that seems easy in essence, but which can be an endeavour of epic proportions.

The first step in creating our main character was to try and think of a character who would be full of charisma, and who would have natural abilities that would empower them to move around the world and adapt to the kind of mechanics we wanted to build into the game.

After a lot of brainstorming, coffee, comic reading, watching cartoons and lots of other inspirational tools, we thought that it would be interesting to play around with a small spider with big eyes that would be able to bring some "human" emotional rapport to the game.

We also decided to stick six legs on him - instead of the standard eight - to make the character a little more friendly looking and little less creepy, as there are a lot of people with arachnophobia. See, we do care!

New Hack 'n Slasher Realms of Ancient War Hits PSN Tuesday

100°
127w ago - Project Manager Julien Millet at Wizarbox has confirmed today that the new hack 'n slasher Realms of Ancient War hits PSN this coming Tuesday.

Below are the details, to quote: Realms of Ancient War has been in development for over two years, inspired by our deep love of hack 'n slash games.

We've played practically every game in the genre (including some pretty obscure PS2 games) to seek out the best ideas from the past.

The rest of our inspiration comes from our designers, who came up with crazy ideas to give our title its own signature fast-and-furious style of action. Every decision was met with one simple question: "Is this a fun idea?"

Do you want to spawn dozens of huge swords from the ground? Yes! Should the screen be covered with hordes of enemies, all bent on killing you? Oh yes!

What about controlling the minds of gigantic enemies, making them pound the crap out of their minion buddies? Hell yes! Maybe you could ride a flashy pink pony and battle your enemies with a giant toilet brush? Uh... let's forget that idea...

We catered every aspect of RAW toward action lovers - you won't find a lot of dialogue boxes or tiresome sidequests. While the story will keep you intrigued, there are no drawn-out conversations to get in the way of the monster-slaying....
