Sony Details PlayStation Mobile GDC 2013 Games Round Up

Sony Details PlayStation Mobile GDC 2013 Games Round Up 50°
101w ago - Sony Director of Emerging Platforms Chris Mahoney has detailed the PlayStation Mobile GDC 2013 games round up below today.

To quote: PlayStation Mobile had quite a presence at yesterday's Indie Arcade event at GDC. On top of all the awesome games out on the floor available to play, we announced the winner of our NYC GameJam, which took place last month at IndieCade East.

The four semi-finalist games-Crystallon, Hermit Crab in Space, Crumble, and Don't Wake the Bear-were all showcased at the event and Hermit Crab in Space, developed by Golden Ruby Games, was crowned as the first PSM GameJam winner.

Hermit Crab in Space will be featured in the PlayStation booth at E3 June 11th through 13th. Let's give a big shout out to all the semi-finalists and huge congratulations to Golden Ruby Games on their big win. These are incredible games developed by extraordinary talent and we look forward to seeing more at future GameJams.

We captured our very first GameJam on film and want to share that experience with you. Twelve amazing indie teams competed at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York working with the theme, "Evolution."

All teams who participated in the event produced remarkable games and it was tough to pick the...
 

Divekick: The Fighting Community Phenomenon Comes to PSN

Divekick: The Fighting Community Phenomenon Comes to PSN 50°
101w ago - Divekick Creator Adam "Keits" Heart has confirmed that the fighting community phenomenon Divekick is coming to PSN.

To quote: Divekick began as a late night joke. I asked aloud to my friend Stephen, "What if there was a game called Divekick, and the characters were Dive and Kick, and the buttons were Dive and Kick?"

He shot up and proudly announced to me that he could make such a game, and by morning we had a design document and we were ready to start. I didn't know it when I made the joke, but Stephen apparently knows enough to code a game!

As we developed the prototype, it became clear that this game was a great tool to clearly explain how deep a single move can really be, and that the high-stress, high-tension gameplay was keeping our test groups hooked. We couldn't get rid of them! We would invite a test group in for a four-hour session, and after fourteen hours they'd still be there laughing and raging at each other.

I'm so excited to finally show what we've been working on to the public. You just really have to try it for yourself to understand what it is all about! We've been playing it every day in serious competition in the Iron Galaxy office after lunch for six months now.

As our players' skill increases, and the number of mistakes they...
 

Video: Primal Carnage: Genesis is Bringing Dinosaurs to PS4

Video: Primal Carnage: Genesis is Bringing Dinosaurs to PS4 50°
101w ago - Lukewarm Media Founder / Game Director Ashton Andersen has announced today alongside a video that Primal Carnage: Genesis is bringing dinosaurs to PS4.

To quote: At some point, everyone has wondered about what it was like to walk among the dinosaurs. We were wondering that for ourselves, so we've set out to develop Primal Carnage: Genesis.

What better way is there to realize that dream than a new generation of PlayStation hardware to drive an incredible immersive experience?

From towering behemoths like the brachiosaurus and the tyrannosaurus rex to smaller creatures like the velociraptor and the dilophosaurus, there is no doubt that there is something magical about the creatures of the prehistoric world. In order to capture that magic in real time, we used Unreal Engine 4 as our software platform of choice.

As the gameplay itself will feature a mix of linear gameplay and open-world exploration from a first-person human perspective, next-generation rendering is key to selling the lush island environment and suspending the disbelief that these dinosaurs aren't actually, well, real.

In the early stages of development, it became clear that we wanted Primal Carnage: Genesis to champion an immersive story driven experience....
 

Mossmouth: Indie Hit Spelunky is Coming to PSN This Summer

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...
