  5. This week we have been celebrating the incredible artwork of God of War. Making games is a creative journey, from writing to design… from production to QA, and we at Santa Monica Studio are excited to celebrate the art department and to share a glimpse of this process with all of you. Our artists have posted hundreds of images that showcase the immense talent and imagination put into the project, so we hope you enjoy! With all that said, be aware: spoilers ahead! Check out the team’s incredible artwork in the links below: Environment & Lighting Characters, Animation, VFX, Breakables and UI Concept Art – (Coming soon, check back later!) Photo Mode Contest As part of this celebration, we’re also kicking off our first official God of War Photo Mode contest starting today. Submit your most creative and original God of War Photo Mode pics to us to enter to win a museum quality Cook & Becker print of your winning submission, signed by our team. Plus you’ll also get a copy of Dark Horse’s in-depth and beautifully designed book, “The Art of God of War”. To enter, just tweet your submission to @SonySantaMonica with #GOWPhotoModeContestEntry + #PS4Share. Make sure to submit soon. You’ll have until July 6 to enter to win! Go here to learn more. Finally, below, we’d like to share with you three of our insightful behind-the-scenes story excerpts. They go in-depth into the art and animation of making this game from the light and foliage in Alfheim to the fearsome, yet awe-inspiring Valkyries. Interested in reading the full stories? We’d love for you to check them out here. Deconstructing Hræzlyr – From Jet Turbines to Komodo Dragons Our Concept Artist, Stephen Oakley, pointed out one particular inspiration that took place with aquatic animals while creating early designs of Hræzlyr. “I know that the earliest thoughts revolved around this mechanic of the dragon being like a jet turbine. Something that’s terrifying and that could be a fun gameplay mechanic (with the suction pulling enemies, and characters towards it).” This gameplay mechanic led to artists José Cabrera, Vance Kovacs and Justin Sweet using different aquatic creatures to create a design. “There was a piece that José had done early on that helped catapult the design forward. He had something that looked like a basking shark embedded into the belly of the dragon. I was looking at bass, which some fish had a surprising amount of suction for. This ended up inspiring a lot of features that are still inside of the Dragon today, like the gills, and it led to us trying to think of creative ways that were inspired from real life – to think about how they would be able to do the things that he does.” On the animation front, the inspirations were focused on various creatures that create loud and powerful footsteps. Our Animator, Sophie Evans, recollected, “A lot of reference came from lizards, komodo dragons and tigers. These animals tend to be really heavy.” The movements of the Mountain Dragon needed to be powerful and strong, she said. “A lot of muscular animals like bears and tigers – they feel heavy because they have a lot of secondary motion from their muscles. With film and TV, you can get a lot of this type of movement, but in games usually, you don’t have the tech or support to have simulations on the muscles. So, I tried to imitate that secondary motion feeling with just the torso, so it’s really exaggerated – the up/down movement on the torso and even the exaggerated lateral left and right. This gives the dragon serpentine movements. So, a mix of reptilian back and forth mixed with really heavy up and down bounce is how I tried to approach this.” Click here for the extended story behind Hræzlyr. Creating the Valkyries – Balancing Fear and Elegance One of the most striking elements on the Valkyries came in the design of their wings. This became a very important element because of how the wings would be used in gameplay and it was also the first striking element that you would encounter when seeing a Valkyrie. Even the core design of these wings was very different from much of what you may have been used to seeing up to that point in the game. Lead Character Concept Artist, Dela Longfish, remembered some of the challenges associated with this part of the design: “Cory and much of the team really liked that the wings weren’t natural – creating an iconic look to these characters. But the wings were the most difficult part – getting these mechanical parts and making sure it didn’t feel out of place with the technology of the time. The design prompt was that we wanted these wings that were mechanical harnesses, but to make sure it fit with Vance Kovacs’ designs.” Our art team would play around with how the Valkyries would use their hands to push and pull the wings, in order to attack and defend. At one point, there were even handles on the wings to really accentuate their mechanical nature.” Click here for the extended story behind the Valkyries. Constructing Alfheim – Designing the Realm’s Two Clashing Sides A fascinating artistic challenge that the Light of Alfheim affected was the foliage. All around Alfheim, as you venture through by both foot and boat, you experience varying tree shapes and otherworldly environment art. Much like everything in this area, even these trees are affected by the Light of Alfheim. Luke Berliner, Lead Environment Concept Artist explained, “Early on, the trees, the environment looked like as if it was growing towards a singular light source and that would look very different than Midgard or any other place. I really liked the singular idea of that light source and how an entire ecology has grown around that in a unique way combined with a more fantastical architecture.” This idea led to interesting concepts where the team played with the region’s fauna and how that would react to having a light source centralized as a beam. Our Sr. Environment Artist, Erik Jakobsen, then took those concepts and translated them into the 3D in-game environment, although the process wasn’t so simple due to the complex nature of trees chosen. “These amazing trees, stretching towards the light, were definitely one of the first things I remember from Luke. This being the first realm you travel to made it difficult to strike a balance between real and magical. What looks good in a single beautiful concept sometimes needs to be tested out in 3D to get the balance correct. Leaves that are too red or too white may throw off the other level elements.” Click here for the extended story behind Alfheim. Thank you again so much to all of our fans worldwide. We’re humbled and honored to share all of our artwork with you! View the full article

  9. Hello, PlayStation players! My name is Youngjin Ko, a game designer and programmer at Korean developer DeerFarm. I’m excited to say our bullet-hell shoot ’em up, Shikhondo – Soul Eater, is coming to PlayStation 4 this summer! For a long time, it has been a big wish to have my name featured in the credits of a console game. Now, with the release of Shikhondo on PS4, I am very happy that my dream has finally come true! I remember the first game I ever played. It was at an arcade and I was about five or six years old. The game was a side-scrolling shooter and it used Journey to the West (Hsi Yu Chi), a famous 16th-century Chinese novel, as a central motif. It was only recently that I learned that the name of the game was Chuka Taisen. Shikhondo and Chaku Taisen share a common theme – they are both shooting games based on Asian mythology. Because of this, I think Chuka Taisen inspired me to make a shooting game. Like many players of shooting games around the world, I’m a fan of Touhou Project – Japan’s famous bullet-hell shoot ’em up series, which has been running for over 20 years. The first project of our team at DeerFarm was creating a doujin (fan-made/self-published) game of the Touhou Project. Touhou’s creator, ZUN, gave fans permission to make these types of derivative titles, so there are many examples of them. In fact, many of these fan games have been released directly to PlayStation 4 thanks to a collaboration between ZUN and Sony Japan called Play, Doujin! Shikhondo is a reinterpretation of our very first project, a doujin game of Touhou Project called Tales of Other Eastern Yokai (東方外妖傳), but with the ‘colour’ of our team. Shikhondo is one of the many games influenced by the Touhou Project, it is our fifth game, but the first that really shows the team’s own creativity. The gameplay, the Asian background, the boss characters inspired by Korean myths – that is all our originality! Korean mythology is very interesting and provides a wealth of ideas to work with. For example, the stage 2 boss of Shikhondo is Chang-kwi (倀鬼), a yokai (demon) from Korean folklore with a very interesting story. According to legend, anyone who is killed by a tiger becomes attached to a tiger’s armpit, cheekbones and chin, and becomes a yokai. The yokai is only released if they can entice other unfortunate souls into the path of the tiger, so they too become its victims. In Shikhondo, Chang-kwi is designed as a woman who hangs upside down from the tiger’s jaw. Here you can see what Chang-kwi looks like in the game: There are six game modes in Shikhondo, including Arcade, Boss Rush, Hardcore, and a new 2-player local co-op mode added for the PS4 version. I think the most special mode, though, is Customisation, which lets you change various settings of the game. For example, you can choose how Soul Collect – the game’s attack/scoring system – is activated, either by grazing (flying close to) enemy bullets or by shooting enemies. I hope you enjoy all the various combinations on offer! Thank you for reading, I hope you have fun playing Shikhondo – Soul Eater, and I look forward to seeing your high scores posted on the leaderboards!

  14. As we get ready for summer, Oasis Games is preparing to bring you guys a fun new party game for PS VR. It has animals! It has aliens! It has fun local multiplayer! It’s… Animal Force! The game takes you to a cartoony alternate earth where humans are under attack by aliens. If only there were superpowered animals on a rocket that could fight back! Oh wait, there ARE superpowered animals that can save everyone—and you get to control them. Using the Move controller, you’ll control a rocket that can scoop up animals and move them around to fire at attacking aliens. You can guide them yourself, drop them in a good spot to defend or just make them wiggle and spin around if that makes you happy. There are 11 animal heroes in all, ranging from Panda to Cat to Eagle to Rhino, and each have cool abilities that you can upgrade. Your Mission Is to… Complete Missions The single player Story mode comprises seven distinct chapters with over 30 missions total. Starting in grasslands with simple enemies, you’ll move to desert, snow and city environments, a neat island, a dangerous volcano and finally, the alien lair itself—if you and your animals survive. (You probably will; you have a PS VR and that means you’re pretty awesome.) You can attach more than one animal hero to your rocket at one time; you can “snake” together (no pun intended) several of them at one time. Combining animals with different powers is a good idea. For instance, putting Panda with his fast DPS attack, Rhino that can freeze enemies and Pheasant’s protecting shield together can make a strong team! There are 20 enemy types and seven bosses in Story mode, one boss for each chapter. You’ll encounter simple Scout enemies first and then more difficult and varied baddies that can fire at your animals, summon other enemies and otherwise make life difficult for you. There’s also a tower defense mini-game to play just for kicks. But What About Your Friends? Sounds pretty fun to play with VR, but what about your cool friends waiting for their turn? Well, up to three friends can join in for three types of local multiplayer minigames using the TV and DualShock 4 controllers. In Steal the Statue, the DualShock players will be disguised as enemies trying to get past the VR player without getting shot. In Odd One Out, the VR player presses a button to make robots—and players trying to hide as robots—move while trying to detect the players before they escape. In Divide & Conga, the DualShock players try to collect 10 humans so they can escape on the rocket—their only problem is the VR player can zap them as in a match-3 game, making up to three humans disappear at once! Animal Force FTW Animal Force will arrive on PS VR this July, bringing its special brand of zany party good times to players. Until then, we’ll be working hard to put the finishing touches on the game—can’t wait to deliver it to you! View the full article
  15. Hi everyone, Stu Tilley here, the Game Director of The Persistence. We’re really excited to announce that The Persistence is going to be available as a physical release on Blu-ray as well as a digital download. It will be available in stores on 25th July. In case you haven’t heard of the game, The Persistence is a procedurally generated sci-fi horror game, exclusively coming to PlayStation VR. You play as a clone of Zimri Eder, the security officer, and every time you die, you print a new (and potentially improved) clone of yourself. There’s a slim chance you could still escape, and take back your life, if only you can survive the horrors onboard and repair the ship’s devastated systems. The blind but terrifying Listener The mutants are terrifying, and all create very unique gameplay. The Listener’s head is only partially formed, he’s completely blind but super sensitive to noise and movement, but with a fully loaded Sentinel pistol he’s as deadly as they come. Dare you stand still and wait for him to pass with the other horrors that lurk onboard? The horrifying inevitability of the Bloodhound Standing still is something you absolutely can’t do when there is a Bloodhound on your tail. He never stops following you. Even if you run to the other side of the deck and hide in a dark corner he will keep following and eventually find you. There is no escape. The only saving grace is that he ambles so slowly, but if he gets close, your only real option is to run. The explosive charge of a fireball The mysterious fireball will test your nerve and your skill. Shimmering stealthily in the darkness, he bursts in to flames and runs screaming right for you, exploding in a ball of napalm. Running isn’t an option, but a well-timed shield might just save you… Turn foe to friend with ivy serum But you’re not a sitting duck, and you can fight back with an arsenal of upgradable gear and weapons. My favourite is the ivy serum. Administered at close range, the Ivy Serum will convert even the most fearsome mutant in to your sworn guardian. With a goofy smile on their face, they will fight to the death to protect you! Pin attackers to walls with the harpoon-firing Valkyrie Another option is to visit a Firearms Fabricator and make a Valkyrie, the hyper-powered harpoon gun packs a massive punch. It might only have limited ammo but it has the power to lift mutants off their feet and pin them to walls. So satisfying!
