Mossmouth: Indie Hit Spelunky is Coming to PSN This Summer

200°
101w ago - Today Mossmouth's Derek Yu has confirmed that indie hit Spelunky is coming to PSN fans this Summer.

Below are the details, to quote: Oh man, this is exciting! It's with great pleasure that I can announce the upcoming arrival of Spelunky on PS3 and PS Vita. I know that we're not the first indie title to be announced this year for these platforms, but the Spelunky team is happy to be part of this wave of indie goodness.

If you've never heard of Spelunky, it's a platformer with randomly-generated levels, making each playthrough a unique experience. The game is hard, but it's rarely unfair, and when you die it's usually in a hilarious way that involves some kind of ridiculous chain reaction.

The difficulty and the randomization work together to give determined players a very rewarding experience - it's common for people to persevere through thousands of deaths to beat Spelunky and uncover its most notorious treasure and secrets.

I think this quote from one of the 2012 Independent Games Festival judges captures the spirit of the game well:

"Spelunky looks like a game of execution, but it's really a game about information and decision-making. How good are you at looking at a situation and understanding what it means?

You can't memorize, and you can't...

Video: The Invisible World of Rain - New PlayStation 3 Gameplay

200°
101w ago - Sony Associate Producer Dais Kawaguchi is here with some fresh video footage on the invisible world of Rain featuring new PlayStation 3 gameplay.

To quote: Hi everyone! It's been a while since we made the announcement of rain at Gamescom, but ever since then, we have been working hard to ensure the wait for more information was worthwhile.

rain was developed by the creative minds from PlayStation C.A.M.P!, the team behind unique titles like TOKYO JUNGLE and echochrome. Rain evolved from a truly unique concept where an imaginative world comes to life once is starts raining.

The story of rain is the enchanting tale about a boy who chases after a girl with an invisible silhouette. After discovering that the girl is being hunted by ghostly creatures, he embarks on his own journey into the mysterious world of rain to save her and discovers he has also become invisible.

Players will play as the boy, whose silhouette can only be seen in the rain. Using the unique ability to appear and disappear under cover players must learn to navigate through the unknown to advance. Just like in the real world, what can be seen isn't everything and using imagination is the only way to reveal the truth.

Insomniac Games on Fuse: Your PlayStation 3 Questions Answered

50°
101w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is here with some answers to Fuse PlayStation 3 questions courtesy of Insomniac Games.

To quote: During a PAX East panel over the weekend, Insomniac Games announced a May 28th North American release date for its upcoming PS3 co-op shooter Fuse.

The game blends some familiar elements of Resistance 2's large-scale co-op mode with exotic weapons powered by an all-powerful alien substance dubbed, you guessed it, "Fuse."

Given the news, we reached out to Insomniac Games President Ted Price with a list of topics we plucked from a recent Twitter call for questions. Enjoy, and be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments.

PSB: Games this generation have take a longer time to develop, how long have you guys been working on the Fuse concept (via jaydawg6958)?

Ted Price, President, Insomniac Games: We started working on Fuse a few years ago. It's evolved significantly since then, as all of our games have. Thematically the best way to describe Fuse is to take the dry humor and teamwork of Mission: Impossible (the new films, not the old TV show) and combine it with the crazy weapons of District 9.

That's the kind of alien...
