Journey into Manifest 99’s Take on VR Travel Mechanics, Out Tomorrow

Posted by on Sep 11, 2017

Tomorrow, September 12, sees the launch of Manifest 99, a story-driven, interactive experience for PS VR. Set on a train ride through the afterlife, Manifest 99 explores a dark and beautiful world through a gaze-based gameplay mechanic. Our team at Flight School Studio is interested in how game mechanics can reinforce narrative themes, particularly when they create experiences that are only possible in VR.

As many VR enthusiasts have learned, locomotion mechanics (how the player moves within the virtual world) are difficult to implement in a way that is seamless to the experience, intuitive, and also doesn’t cause simulator sickness. In Manifest 99, there is a certain level of emotional unease we want players to experience; but, the last thing we want is someone to take their headset off because they’re not feeling well!

Posted by on Sep 08, 2017

Hey everybody!

We’re Tim and Jay from High Horse Entertainment and we’re excited to detail our latest patch and announce Disc Jam’s first new character: Kahuna!

Kahuna is the strongest character in the game, but unlike other power throwers, he can put a good amount of spin on the disc as well. Defending Kahuna can be a challenge, but he’s the slowest character in the game so be sure to move him around the court and keep him sliding when you face him!

Posted by on Sep 07, 2017

Have you ever wondered what you would get if you mashed up a twin stick shooter with a match-3 puzzle game? Well, I did (yeah, I’m a bit weird) and the answer is Transcripted, coming to PS4!

Transcripted is an arcade game where you must survive waves of enemies and at the same time think and plan your next move to create cascading combos in a match-3 challenge. This is an unusual mental task, but don’t be frightened by the number of enemies or bullets. You just have to use cleverly the invulnerability system and you’ll be able to survive seemingly impossible mayhem!
