We’ve been playing with the PlayStation 4 for a while, because we’ve been preparing Sound Shapes for this screaming fast new machine. Sound Shapes doesn’t exactly push the hardware, but it sure looks sweet! We’ve also added new functionality with DualShock 4’s touchpad, light bar, and speakers. It also takes advantage of PS4’s social features, like the new Share button that allows you to easily livestream your game with friends and share vids of your levels.
This week, Toronto-based developers (and good friends) Queasy Games & Capy are putting their classic PSN titles on sale. Everyday Shooter & Critter Crunch may be markedly different games that took alternate paths onto the PlayStation Store, but they share a lot in common. Here’s a little bit about why these games are important to their creators/teams.
Everyone has the friends who know all the new bands and all the cool music, who make the mixtapes and the killer roadtrip soundtracks, the friends who you always ask, “What are you listening to?”
We made some good friends creating Sound Shapes, the kind of friends that are deep into games and music. So with Sound Shapes being all about games and music too, we just had to ask them, “So what are you playing?”
The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and “wub” is in the air… and with the spring comes a new blast of Sound Shapes DLC. Two unique sound packs are available right now and in just a couple weeks we’re stuffing the Community Milkcrate with more albums from guest curators – more on that below after this brand new video showcasing our new 80’s and Dubstep Sound Packs.
The holidays are upon us and things are getting festive here at Queasy Games! Between launching Sound Shapes, reviews of the game, awards, and an awesome Community, we have a lot to be thankful for – it’s been a great year! And because you’re one of our good friends, we made you a gift. Oh, it’s okay you didn’t get us anything – playing our game, creating amazing levels, and just being you is more than enough.
Go ahead… open it.
Yup, a Holiday Sound Pack. Do you like it? Five new Christmas-themed instruments from classic carols to create your own holiday tunes – because there’s no such thing as too much Christmas music!
Hey Sound Shapers, we’re really excited to announce our first wave of DLC: four new packs are coming your way – three Sound Packs and a Curved Terrain Pack. The Sound Packs each include five new instruments, five brand new Beat School levels, and for you Trophy hunters, five new Trophies!
The Sound Packs are $0.99 each, and the Curved Terrain Pack is free. You’ll find everything in our new in-game Sound Shapes Music Shop today. (You can also grab them on PSN, as usual.)
Here’s a short trailer with a track we put together using some of the new sounds. And remember, if you create something you’re digging, tell us on Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr – we love playing your levels.
