Video: The Crazy Story Behind Shiftlings PS4 on PlayStation 4

Video: The Crazy Story Behind Shiftlings PS4 on PlayStation 4 800°
4w ago - Rock Pocket Games PR and Assistant Producer Natascha Rooslio shared a PS4 video today spotlighting the crazy story behind Shiftlings on PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Hey everyone! It's so awesome to be able to share a bit of the background story behind Shiftlings with you, because, yeah, the game actually has one!

The prototype for Shiftlings was born during a Game Jam competition here in Norway. Due to holiday, vacation and family (ahem...) interference, we only had five days instead of ten to come up with an idea to fit the theme of "Size Matters." So our first task was obviously to get the game design and core mechanics in place.




However, we were always quite adamant that there should be a reason why you would want to go through any level, even if that specific reason (and its conclusion) would only be revealed at a later point in the game. After all, solving puzzles just for the heck of it is not really incredibly interesting.

Once we had the heart of the game in place, we wanted to make sure everything around that core made sense and gave the mechanics meaning.

We took some inspiration from our favorite game shows to create the framework for our game. Many shows have cheeky narrators...

12w ago - Video Game Designer / Director David Jaffe made available a PS4 video trailer video today announcing that Drawn to Death, a hand-drawn arena shooter, is coming to PlayStation 4.

To quote: Hey y'all! David Jaffe here, game director at The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency.

Today's a big, big day for all of us at our little game making and ghost hunting studio.

As for the ghost hunting team, Bartlet and crew have made some big discoveries in the whole Al Capone opera house haunting. Keep an eye out for an update that should be hitting your favorite ghost hunting site soon (and perhaps major news sites as well if what Bartlet thinks they've found ends up being authenticated!)

As for the game making part of the company, today is the day we're finally able to reveal DRAWN TO DEATH, the game we've been making with the fantastic crew at Sony San Diego!

And if I may, before I jump into details, I gotta say: MAN it feels great to be back with my Sony family!!!

I remember sitting in Scott Rhode's office 18 months ago, pitching him the game and trying to be cool and pro and not express my excitement when it started to become clear that Scott was going to give Drawn To Death the go ahead and that PlayStation 4 would be the home of the studio's first...

PS4 Hacking: The State of Things Part III: I/O Vulnerability Analysis by SKFU

PS4 Hacking: The State of Things Part III: I/O Vulnerability Analysis by SKFU 650°
23w ago - Following up on his previous update, today Sony PlayStation 4 hacker SKFU shared an update on PS4 hacking discussing the state of things Part III featuring I/O Vulnerability Analysis with details below.

To quote: PS4 - The State of Things Part III: I/O Vulnerability Analysis

After we checked the environment of the PS4, we should continue with more detailed analysis where, how and what we can im- & export from the system to actually affect it.

Let's see what our general I/O possibilities are first:

USB

Have you noticed the application "SHAREfactory" on your PS4? One of it's interesting features is to import music files via USB. Vulnerability? Maybe. At least FFmpeg has all actual patches applied.

SHAREfactory USB music import. Also useful as mediaplayer

Another USB feature is the import and export of screenshots, gameplay videos and savegames. Worth to check I'd say.

HDD

As expected the HDD is encrypted so you can't do much here, yet. But remember the PS3...
