Citizens of Earth: Retro-Inspired RPG Out Today on PS4 and PS Vita

300°
5w ago - Atlus PR Manager John Hardin announced today that the retro-inspired Citizens of Earth is officially out today on PS4 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: Greetings, citizens of Earth - I'm here to talk about, uh... Citizens of Earth. Errr, right!

Today, ATLUS and indie developer Eden Industries will put you in the role of the second-highest bureaucrat on the planet, the Vice President of Earth. But don't let the politics fool you, because there aren't any in the game.

It's a retro-inspired RPG through and through, where as the VP you have to go around and figure out why the world has gone mad.

But here's the deal. When you're a career politician, you don't get your hands dirty, you make other people do it for you. As the VP, your job will be to recruit as many citizens as possible and use their special abilities to round out your party.

There are more than 40 citizens total, but you can only bring three of them with you at a time. And in addition to basic combat skills, the citizens also have special talents that can be utilized to help outside of combat. Deep in a dungeon and need some health items?

Have your Brother order...
 

Ackk Studios: Indie RPG Y2K is Coming to PS4 and PS Vita

16w ago - ACKK STUDIOS LLC Co-director Andrew Allanson announced today that Indie RPG Y2K is coming to PS4 and PS Vita platforms.

Below are the details, to quote: Hey, readers! I'm Andrew Allanson, from AckkStudios. I'm here to tell you about a 3D, turn-based, Japanese-style RPG that we are developing for PS4 and PS Vita. The game is called Y2K.

Y2K is being developed by Brian & Andrew Allanson with Jose Alfaro, Ian Bailey, and Brigid Allanson. We unite under the name of AckkStudios LLC! Ackk is partnering with Ysbryd Games to ensure polish and funding for the game.

So, what's all this Y2K stuff about?

For those of you too young to remember, Y2K refers to the year 2000 problem. Basically, it was a coding bug that was projected to create havoc in computers and computer networks around the world at the beginning of the year 2000... a lot of people thought the world was going to end because of this. It was pretty crazy.

With that in mind, here are more specifics about the premise: When an erratically-behaving elevator claims the life of a young woman, unemployed recent college graduate Alex Eggleston takes to a primitive 1990s message-board to find answers about the death of this stranger. His quest for answers leads to more questions as his research points him to...

35w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino shared new details today on PS Vita's upcoming action RPG dubbed Freedom Wars alognside a PlayStation Vita trailer video below.

To quote: It's my distinct honor to bring you more information regarding one of the biggest PS Vita titles you'll see this year - Freedom Wars!

The futuristic action game launched last week in Japan, so we wanted to bring a few more details to our North American "Prisoners."

Those who were able to visit the PlayStation booth at E3 might have had a chance to play our multiplayer co-operative demo - thanks to all who stopped by!

I saw a lot of expert thorn-wielders soaring across the skies of the Panopticon, sawing Abductors apart and saving civilians to decrease their 1 million year sentence of penal servitude, and I must say, I was very impressed. However, the one recurring question I continue to hear from the community is - "How's the story?" Well, let's take a peek:




Freedom Wars promises intense co-op action with a captivating storyline. I'd like to leave you today with a message from our Japan Studio Producer, Junichi Yoshizawa. Yoshizawa-san has been tirelessly promoting Freedom Wars throughout Japan across the...
 

Reaper is Coming to PlayStation Vita as Free-to-Play Action RPG

50°
38w ago - Creative Director Luc Bernard announced today alongside a PlayStation Vita video trailer that Reaper is coming to PS Vita as a free-to-play action RPG!

To quote: Hello, I'm Luc Bernard. I'm the creative director, and art director, and - well - I look after many other roles on Reaper for PS Vita. Now this is my first time doing a post on Playstation.Blog, so it may sound a bit all over the place!

I don't know if anyone remembers, but years ago Reaper was announced back in 2010 for Playstation Portable. The title had to be put on hold for a while sadly, but now it's back. I'd say it's a great thing that I waited this long to resume development and show it to the world.

Reaper is a free-to-play title exclusive to PlayStation Vita. Personally the Vita is my favorite portable system for many reasons, which I don't think I need to go into since you Vita owners already know them.




Now let's talk about the gameplay. Reaper is an action RPG platformer, so you'll be leveling up, pulling off combos, destroying enemies, and all those kind of things.

But what makes it unique is the card system. Now don't worry, it's not like those mobile games that have cards where you can't do anything with them -...

Kenny Lee, Teddy's brother and Cellar Door co-founder, also notes:

We hope you're as excited about the release of Rogue Legacy on PlayStation as we are. Releasing a game on consoles has always been a milestone and a bit of a dream for us, and we never would have taken that step forward without your support and enthusiasm.

It means a lot...
