Agent, you’ve been hard at work saving the world, and you really deserve a vacation. So we’re going to to give you one. On October 24, you will be able to download a new update to I Expect You To Die (IEYTD) entitled First Class. New and existing players will travel in a first class train cabin on an all-expenses-paid vacation across India. What do I mean by “all-expenses-paid?” The level is free, of course! Sit back, relax, and… well, try not to die.
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!
We have some exciting news for those of you that haven’t picked up PlayStation VR yet. Across the U.S. and Canada, we’re launching a new bundle that includes the PlayStation VR headset and PlayStation Camera for $399 USD (MSRP) / $499 CAD (MSRP). This essentially gives you the PlayStation Camera at no extra charge, and will be the core PS VR bundle moving forward.
What’s more, the existing PlayStation VR Worlds bundle (PS VR headset, PS Camera, two PlayStation Move motion controllers and PlayStation VR Worlds) will be available at a new lower price of $449 USD (MSRP) / $579 CAD (MSRP) – so you can get started with an all-in PS VR package at an even greater value. Both bundles will start arriving at retailers on September 1, so check with your local retailers for availability.

Our team has created a rich, immersive world with Manifest 99 and we are excited to have y’all play it on PS VR. It’s been a journey creating an experience that straddles the line between dream and nightmare. We hope you’ll join us on our winding train trek through the great beyond.

Hello PlayStation Friends! The team here at nDreams and co-developers Near Light are very excited to announce that our new over-the-top multitasking game Shooty Fruity will be launching later this year on PlayStation VR.
As the newest employee of Super Megamart, you begin your day only to be set upon by masses of ‘genetically mutated’ fruit. That’s mutated, not modified. Like human-sized melons, rabid oranges, and raspberries that fire artillery at you. It’s all completely under control though. Successfully ‘doing your job’ gives you access to an arsenal of high octane, military-grade weapons that you can use to pulp the ripe plump fruit into little pieces. Juicy… Scan a tin of beans, get a pistol. Scan more tins of beans and you get a high velocity submachine gun along with an exploding ammo power-up.
Do you like war games, but get confused by all that chaotic running around? Do you like
