Cult Studio Llamasoft Blazes Onto PlayStation Vita With TxK

100°
96w ago - Llamasoft Founder Jeff Minter announced today that Cult Studio Llamasoft is blazing onto PlayStation Vita with TxK.

Below are the details, to quote: Nearly 20 years ago, in 1994, one of the best-known Llamasoft games ever was released on the Atari Jaguar - the seminal Tempest 2000. This title came to be recognized as one of the finest games on the system.

Based upon an early '80s arcade game, T2K aimed to be more than just a port of an older game. Instead, T2K took that old classic game as an inspiration, and offered up something entirely new and modern.

The original coin-op game was based around a color vector display - a look it was impossible to replicate on raster displays and with graphics hardware of the day, so T2K defined a style all of its own.

The floating platforms in space that defined the play areas were created using Gouraud-shaded polygons, as were the enemies that populated them - in that pre-PlayStation era such polygonal graphics were considered cutting-edge.

T2K also introduced design elements that were to become Llamasoft trademarks - flowing particle systems, full-screen video feedback effects, and objects that shattered into thousands of glowing particles.

Thomas Was Alone: Out Today on PS3 and PS Vita With DLC

50°
97w ago - Designer Mike Bithell announced today that Thomas Was Alone is officially released today on PS3 and PS Vita complete with DLC.

To quote: It's done. A game which began as a Flash game made over a weekend because my girlfriend was away and I was a bit bored, is today coming out on PS3 and PS Vita via PSN and PS+.

That last sentence was a bit of a mouthful. I apologize.

Thomas Was Alone is a game about friendship and jumping. As you can see from the images and videos no doubt littered amongst this post, it is also very much about rectangles.

If you've got PlayStation Plus and you're in the US, you'll get 20% off the game for a limited time, because of the Spring Fever sale. Which is awesome. Daffodils rock.

This version will also give you first access to some new stuff. There's a new DLC episode which tells the story of Benjamin, a new square with a jetpack and big ideas, and a commentary mode in the main game where you can listen to me going on and on about how clever I was putting the game together.

It's spellbinding. I'm listening to it as I write this, because I'm on a train and it's either that or Bowie's new album, which I've listened to twice. You should really listen to Bowie's album too. I'm not here to plug that...
