The Magic of Animation in Moss: How Polyarc Brought Quill to Life

Posted by on Apr 09, 2018

Hello PlayStation gamers! My name is Rick Lico, Animation Director for Polyarc. I’m here to talk with you all about Quill, the protagonist of Moss. Let me kick this off by asking you a question, dear reader. If you had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring your own character to life in your own game, who would that character be? Would your character be a bold hero? A physical representation of societal tropes? A disco assassin wearing fish tank platform shoes tearing up Studio 54?

Our answer to this question is Quill, a confident, secure, self-reliant, impetuous young mouse. We’re eternally grateful to our fans for their overwhelming support of her. In fact, I’ve never seen people have such a stark, emotional reaction to a character that I’ve worked on before. Numerous reviews for Moss often mention how real Quill feels. People are genuinely building an emotional bond with her. But what is it about Quill that inspires this reaction?

Killing Floor: Incursion Out May 1, Bonus PS VR Level Revealed

Posted by on Apr 06, 2018

Tripwire is excited to announce the release date for Killing Floor: Incursion for PlayStation VR: May 1, 2018! We’re also happy to announce that Killing Floor: Incursion will be playable by the public for the first time at PAX East in Boston this weekend at the Sony booth.

Previously at PS Blog, we shared the news that there was a special bonus level coming for PS VR players. We’re happy to say we can now share details about this level with you. It’s called “The Crucible” — and it’s a blast to play! The map contrasts sharply with the realistic style of the rest of the levels in the game with it’s Tron-style virtual sci-fi aesthetic. The Crucible started out as our development arena for trying out gameplay ideas in the Holdout game mode. When playing it though, we found the map was so fun that we made the decision to fully flesh it out and add it in for PS VR players to enjoy.

Take a 360° Tour of Torn, A Sci-Fi Mystery Coming to PS VR This Spring

Posted by on Apr 06, 2018

Hi there! My name is Neill Glancy, and I’m the Creative Director of New IP at Aspyr Media.

Last month at PS Blog, we introduced the world to Torn, a dark science-fiction mystery in the style of the Twilight Zone and Black Mirror. If you missed the announcement, you can check out the trailer here.

Today, we’d like to take you on a brief tour of just a few of the locations you’ll explore in the Mansion of Torn. From the beginning, it was a major design goal that the Mansion be a tourist destination for fans of classic science fiction. We want this mansion to feel alive, to grow and change as the story progresses, to slowly reveal its secrets, just as our characters will do through the narrative.

Island Time VR Out Today: Meet Carl the Crab

Posted by on Apr 03, 2018

Aloha, PlayStation VR Fans! Adam Volker here from Flight School Studio excited as heck to tell you that our next PSVR game, Island Time VR, is out today! This arcade-style survival game strikes a very different tone from our last PSVR release, Manifest 99, which was recently nominated for an Emmy Award. In Island Time VR, you are shipwrecked on a tiny virtual island. You’ll have to find a way to survive and not starve; so, you’ll catch fish, craft tools and fend off pesky creatures like seagulls who steal your stuff. Oh! And, you’ll have to start a fire to cook food. Good luck with that one.

And, today, I’m chatting with the amazing Ruby Wang, Art Director for Island Time VR and Greg Miller of Kinda Funny, the illustrious voice of Carl The Crab. As the island’s only resident, Carl is the friendliest crustacean you’ve ever met. He helps players out with (sorta) useful tips, tricks, and the occasional claw. He’s your new best friend. Kinda.
