Ludometrics Announces Bodycheck is Coming to PlayStation Vita

50°
58w ago - Ludometrics Founder David Thomson announced today that Bodycheck is coming to PlayStation Vita!

To quote: Hiya. I'm David, the de-facto Chief Person at Ludometrics, based in Glasgow, Scotland. The team here has been around for a long time in various forms, prior to teaming up again at Ludometrics; we originally made games for mobile phones way back last century, if you can imagine that.

Today, though, I'm here to tell you about Bodycheck, a game I've been waiting to make for quite a long time. Sometimes, as it's said, all you need is a little patience.

Bodycheck is a sports game for people who don't necessarily like sports. Personally, I'm a fan of sports. I can sports with the best of them. But I find most sports games of recent years lack a certain something-something. Perhaps they're not physical enough, or they manage not to capture the chaos of play, or sometimes they're just a bit ponderous.

Bodycheck will (hopefully) contain that certain something-something. I love reading about the origins of football in the Middle Ages, with 500 players per team and matches lasting days - and the ball was actually a pig's head.

We won't have that many players per team in the game, and matches will be a tad shorter, but punching, scratching, and general unnecessary roughness...
 

Energy Hook is Coming to PS4 and PlayStation Vita in 2014

50°
59w ago - To quote: Chief Scientist Jamie Fristrom at Happion Laboratories announced today that Energy Hook is coming to both PS4 and PlayStation Vita platforms in 2014.

To quote: Being an independent game developer sure has been a bumpy ride. After making Spider-Man 2, I quit my sweet gig at Activision to see if I could make games my own way, on my own terms.

I've been through a lot since then! I founded a company with a friend. We built it up, had several employees, health insurance, and everything only to see it come crashing down.

So now I'm on my own again, starting over from scratch. But maybe things are turning around? By revisiting the coolest thing I've ever done - swinging game mechanics - and launching an unorthodox Kickstarter for the game, called Energy Hook, my new company Happion Labs seems to be on an upward trajectory.

And the latest piece of good news: I'm going to be able to bring Energy Hook to PS4 and PS Vita!

So, what's Energy Hook? Well, imagine a 3D swinging game like Spider-Man 2 had a love child with "points-for-style" game SSX. You swing from rooftop to rooftop, pull off mid-air tricks, run along walls, and rack up points and energy for doing it. Because: it's the future.

And that's what the extreme sports of the future look like....
