Evergreen Avenue

A unique blend of visual novel, schedule management, and puzzle, this game will have you competing with your rival for the coveted slot of emissary to the great spirits from beyond. Evergreen Avenue takes place in a world that was once governed by magic - where spirits and men once peacefully coexisted.

The spirits eventually lost their influence over the realm and left humanity to its own devices. The king of the spirits has recently decided to return to this plane and bond with the common folk once more.

Players will choose between a male or female protagonist, each with their own unique backstory and traits, as they set out to impress the seven spirits who have come to judge them. The unselected character will become your rival, and you will...

105w ago - Sony Director of Product Planning & Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa has confirmed some new PS Vita applications are incoming this Spring, including Friend Network and Imaginstruments.

To quote: We've had a slew of exceptional new applications hit PS Vita recently, like the otherworldly simulator Ecolibrium, Wake-up Club, and plenty of others. Today, we wanted to unveil two great new applications you'll soon be enjoying on PS Vita.

Friend Network, already a huge hit in Japan and other territories in Asia, is a unique social application for PS Vita that allows you to interact with friends and meet new people in a whole new way.

Guided by PlayStation mascot mainstay Toro, the app lets PS Vita owners visualize their network of friends and gaming buddies through the use of avatars in a colorful environment, and through growing their friends list, players can grow their own unique town space within Friend Network.

With the ultimate goal of reaching 100 friends within Friend Network, lobbies are available where players can meet new friends and exchange virtual "business cards." These cards contain information that players can use to get to know others within Friend Network.

Additionally, Friend Network comes fully integrated with your favorite social networks....

Video: Ibb and Obb: Turning PSN Upside Down Next Spring

50°
125w ago - Sparpweed Creative Director Richard Boeser has posted up a video trailer today introducing Ibb and Obb, which will be turning PSN upside down next Spring!

To quote: ibb and obb is a cooperative puzzle-platformer with a gravity twist that will launch on PSN next spring.

In the earliest stages of development, the game was called Brothers. Looking back at that now, it means a lot more than I thought it did.

My fondest memories of games are those that I played together with my brother or close friends. It has always surprised me how few games are really designed around two-player interaction.

With ibb and obb we've tried to do just that. The gameplay revolves around a world with two directions of gravity, but even more so it's about the interaction between the players.

All elements in the game are designed for two, ranging from the way you solve puzzles to handling enemies. For example, when one player takes out an enemy the other tries to be ready on the other side of the split to fetch the reward.




In the game you explore five worlds consisting of three levels each. Visually, the mood starts out very colorful and adventurous, slowly changing...
