Hi there PlayStation Community. This week, we’re launching Cardboard Castle on PlayStation Mobile. This is our first game on the platform, and we wanted to give the community something that was fun, entertaining and creative. The premise of the game is to use real-world items like scissors, water and fire to help the hero of the story on his adventure through a land of cardboard.
As we were designing the game and discussing the idea of having “real” elements in the game, someone on our team suggested cardboard with the idea that it could be cut, get wet or burned. So the idea of a puzzle/adventure fantasy world based on cardboard was born.
We wanted to create a story that was totally based on cardboard and paper only. In the beginning the design of the game was really bland, so we added a cartoony feel to it in order to get that balance of real world and cartoon that we were looking for. We also wanted people to feel like they were progressing in the game by using real world items such as scissors and a glass of water.
As you play through the game, you will see where we added fun and humor. The main hero sometimes sometimes chooses to take gold coins instead of getting something easier to save the princess. We were inspired by movies such as Shrek and The Princess Bride when it came to designing the characters in the game.
In this PlayStation Mobile version, you’ll get two exclusive stories, with a new main character and over 10 new levels. The two stories are based on the adventures of a peasant trying to become a knight, to gain the favor of the princess that he is in love with. There are many fun and exciting things that happen to the peasant on this journey.
We are really excited for you to play this game and to experience the passion, humor and creativity that we put into it. The extra levels that we have added into the PlayStation Mobile version, allowed us to continue the story and allow you to continue to have fun.
PS Vita owners can download Cardboard Castle from the PlayStation Mobile section of PlayStation Store for $1.99; Owners of PlayStation-certified devices such as the Sony Xperia Z smartphone or Wikipad can obtain it through the PlayStation Mobile Store for the same price.
