PlayStation Eye Chat: Shatter Multiplayer

Chris Morell's Avatar + Posted by Chris Morell on Mar 30, 2010 // Senior Social Media Specialist

Shatter is easily one of my favorite PSN games from last year. So when we heard rumblings of multiplayer and other modes/features coming to the game, we went to go straight to the source for all the details.

So I’d like to welcome back Mario Wynands, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Sidhe, whom you originally met here. If you still haven’t downloaded Shatter on PSN/PS3, you’ll get a nice intro to the game in this video. But beyond that, Mario talks about some in-the-works stuff including Home integration, the inclusion of multiplayer modes and even the release of the game’s soundtrack. And if you make it to the end of the video, you’ll get a close-up of the physical CD version of the soundtrack, which you can snag by paying close attention to our Twitter feed today.

As Chris said multiple times during the interview and can bear repeating again, Shatter is a great game. Any hint as to whether these new features will be part a free update or paid DLC?

    I just realized watching this back how many times I said Shatter is a great game. I swear I don’t work for them! It’s just a killer app.

Shatter is such a great game especially at that price point.

The trophies are seriously challenging. Beating all the bosses in under 10 minutes may give you a stroke but its still fun!

With objectives that hard this game should have had a platinum trophy attached to it!

Shatter is easily my favorite game on both PSN and XBLA. The graphics, gameplay, and the music is extremely good. I finished this hundred of times and I realy hope a sequel for this game, realy. I bought the game on the PC as well to encourage developpers of this game.

I paid for shatter, do I have to pay for it again to get multiplayer?

+ StargamerX on March 30th, 2010 at 2:17 pm said:

Yes! Shatter is an awesome game, I’ve been picking it up every now and then since I bought it at launch! Glad to see post-launch support for such a good game.

hmm, it does look like a fun game :]

+ Kirkpad on March 30th, 2010 at 2:25 pm said:

Shatter multiplayer… interesting. I’m guessing the Home integration means it will have game launching support?

+ bdavid81 on March 30th, 2010 at 2:27 pm said:

Shatter is fantastic! The music is incredible, I did a $5 donation and got the download of the OST when it was available. :) Glad to see continued support on the title!

Great interview Chris! Bought the game at launch and loving it.

Shatter is amazing! I highly recommend buying the AMAZING soundtrack also! :D

Do you think the Shatter CD will be released in the PSN?

Great stuff! Any chances an expansion will make it’s way out in the future?

I wonder what Mr Mario Wynands thinks about the upcoming firmware update removing functionality from the device he is developing for?

Buy It!! and the soundtrack easily one of the best games on PSN and absolutely the best soundtrack.

@22 Clearly, you didn’t watch the video above.

+ Jeigh on March 30th, 2010 at 3:15 pm said:

Well, allow me to pile on top of the many who have commented before me: this is a GREAT game. I just recently got the trophy for getting 10,000,000 points in the Bonus Modes, along with finishing the campaign. I have to say, whoever it is that is playing in the videos, they are seriously good- I seriously underestimated the importance of multiple balls and apparently I only got the half of the sucking/blowing mechanic. (You know, taken out of context, that sentence could be seriously bad… or good, depending on the situation, but the potential for double entendre is definitely there.)

@26 I’m on my phone… I couldn’t. A simple yes/no would suffice :)

+ bdavid81 on March 30th, 2010 at 3:18 pm said:

@28 Fair enough. :) Yes. It will on PSN just as the Heavy Rain OST is.

+ Jeigh on March 30th, 2010 at 3:21 pm said:

Oh, right, and this is great news about the multiplayer- this could enter it into the PS3 Multiplayer Hall of Fame (Single Console Bracket), right alongside PixelJunk Monsters, Burn Zombie Burn, Comet Crash and… well, I’m sure there are others, but I don’t have a great deal of money so I’m kind of out of the loop. TikGames has a few that are probably on the list- they’ve been turning out some good stuff.

Glad to see this game getting the love it deserves.

Any idea if the co-op will be local or online?

Thanks! I loved the soundtrack. That boss song would get stick in both my brother’s and my head lol

Just my opinion, but Shatter was the best game released on PSN last year.

I have to admit, the game is good, but can get VERY repetitive.. then again it’s just one man’s opinion

+ Elite_Pyro on March 30th, 2010 at 5:40 pm said:

I also have the same question that number 10 has…


45

+ plaztiksyke on March 30th, 2010 at 5:41 pm said:

Can we get trophies in the new co-op mode? Specifically, Master Batter and The Boss? Will there be any tuning that makes The Boss trophy easier to get?

Will there be any tweaks to the graphics or audio? Shatter is still one of the best examples of how good a 720p game can look with MSAA applied appropriately, but 1080p would be even better. It would be great if the awesome music was re-encoded at a higher bitrate, or even better, losslessly compressed (like Critter Crunch, Braid, etc).

Will the soundtrack download be lossless? If we download the soundtrack, and it is higher quality than in-game asets, will the game use the downloaded soundtrack instead? I don’t mind paying a premium for hearing HD music in-game! :)

Thanks for continuing to support this great game — this is the kind of stuff that keeps me loyal to indie game studios!

Will it be free DLC or will have to pay?


48

+ krae_man on March 30th, 2010 at 6:28 pm said:

Mario’s posts on the Official Shatter forums make it sound like Free patch vs Paid DLC hasn’t been decided yet.


49

+ acerazer1 on March 30th, 2010 at 6:39 pm said:

Shatter is really freakin awesome, it’s only $8, but easily better than most $10 games.

Still need to get the Boss trophy though…
