Posted by on Mar 17, 2017

If you’re not aware of Korix yet (And let’s be honest, you’re probably not), let me start by asking you a few questions: do you like RTS games? What about tower defense? How about in VR and with multiplayer support? Hopefully I have your attention now!

Hello, my name’s Mark Taylor and I’m the developer of Korix. Korix has been a real labor of love over the past year with my sole goal being to release a game with old-school gameplay reminiscent of RTS’s from the late 90’s on PS VR. I’m so excited to see Korix released and more importantly, I finally get to play with you!

Headmaster Party Mode Update Adds 9 Multiplayer Levels Today

Posted by on Mar 17, 2017

PlayStation.Blog! It’s been almost 2 years since my last post announcing our improbable VR game Headmaster back at E3 2015.

Headmaster launched alongside the PS VR in October alongside several excellent reviews. We focused on a single-player campaign for players to get lost in, but also managed to sneak in a local multiplayer mode with one preview level. It lets two to six players take turns in VR trying to get high scores. For being an incomplete part of the game, the response to this mode has been incredible.

This got us motivated to over-deliver when filling it out, and today we’re pumped to launch the Party Mode Update!

Farpoint: Meeting Your Friend on an Alien World

Posted by on Mar 16, 2017

The craggy, barren chasms of Farpoint are already dangerous. Now add the hissing, scampering, spitting creatures that live on the planet and you’ll be more thankful for your rifle in this first-person shooter for PlayStation VR. But why brave such dangers alone? The team at Impulse Gear worked hard to build unique levels that you can enjoy with a friend online, and I gave them an honest (albeit doomed) attempt with Impulse Gear Co-founder Seth Luisi.

Farpoint Launches May 16 on PS VR, Features Online Co-op

Posted by on Mar 08, 2017

More shocking than an alien spider jumping at your face, I’m happy to reveal Farpoint co-op! The undiscovered planet in Farpoint is unpredictable and dangerous, but no longer does it have to be a solitary experience. You and a friend can explore the planet together in cooperative levels.

Farpoint places you on on a distant hostile world with your only chance of survival and escape being to uncover its secrets and reunite with your team. In addition to the full single-player campaign, sharing the virtual world of Farpoint in co-op has been a key objective of the project from the beginning.
