Girls Make Games 2018 Recap: Celebrating Girls in Gaming

Posted by on Aug 16, 2018

One moment from Demo Day stands out. A girl had just imitated a Blobfish swimming, to explain why her team, The Mystery Squirrels, had selected the unusual-looking creature as its protagonist for their game, Detective Blobfish.

The room, which included senior leaders from PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo and Caffeine, shared a laugh. This moment exemplifies to me not only the joy in games themselves, but the way the industry came together around Girls Make Games.

Breaking the Silence on The Quiet Man

Posted by on Aug 16, 2018

I’d like to share with you some of the latest updates on The Quiet Man, a title I’ve been working on with the talented Human Head Studios team for quite a while now. The Quiet Man is priced at $14.99 and can be completed in a short concise amount of time – approximately three hours.

We’ve shared very little about the game so far since our announcement at E3. In creating The Quiet Man, we wanted to take on an all-new challenge and opportunity in creating a game of high visual quality in a short compact gameplay experience that players could enjoy for a low price point. We wanted to create something unorthodox – a live action film, where you can take the role of the protagonist.

Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, Out October 2 on PS4

Posted by on Aug 15, 2018

You stand in the middle of the decrepit city of Eden, a lone source of civilization in a post-apocalyptic, dusty wasteland and nothing will come between you and the love of your life.

As you jog through the alleyways on your way to recover parts for a broken dune buggy, you’re approached by a wild group of mx1uscled men wearing mohawks straight out of the 80s, intent on starting a fight to the death. Punches, kicks, a scream of “ATATATATATATA” as you unload your charged fists into the torso of a single adversary, then the whisper, “Omae Wa Mou Shindeiru.” (“You are already dead.”)

Unearthing Mars 2 Launches September 18 for PS VR

Posted by on Aug 15, 2018

Hello everyone! I’m thrilled to announce that Unearthing Mars 2: The Ancient War will be launched on September 18!

Unearthing Mars 2 is a futuristic FPS VR shooter from beginning to end, featuring slow-motion superpowers, distinctive weapons and challenging boss battles. You will experience adrenaline-pumping FPS combat as you shoot down enemies and bend time to your advantage.

Our first PS VR title, Unearthing Mars, was released in 2017. It highlighted the potential of VR gaming by introducing a different gameplay mechanic in each chapter. This second installment continues the adventures; however, this time it will be a complete FPS title, featuring shooter gameplay from the last chapters of the first game that fans loved so much. You are equipped with a PS VR Aim Controller to take down enemy foes as you travel back in time to an ancient Mars civilization. The new gameplay enables you to shoot enemies as you comfortably maneuver in and out of action-packed combat.
