Splice Coming to PS3!

That’s right! Later this year, we’re going to be self-publishing Splice on the PS3. This week we’re honored to be showing off Splice as part of the PlayStation booth at E3. Check out more on our featured PlayStation blog post.

We’re shooting for a late summer to early fall release. We’re also hoping to include optional PlayStation Move support. Be sure to keep an eye out for Splice on the PSN!

Create Your Own Levels in Auditorium: Duet

When we were making Splice, we created an in-game level editor for ourselves so we could jump into any level and modify it while playing. The editor was a simple drag-and-drop interface for creating and deleting nodes, and it was super streamlined and convenient. We were sad that our players never got to use it. We’re hoping Duet will be a different story.

We’ve created a similar level editing system for Duet, both to simplify our own level-making process, and to allow players to create their own levels. The in-game editor allows you to drag-and-drop streams, controls, and obstacles into the level, or modify and destroy any of these elements at will. Auditorium: Duet will be a creative exercise both for us as developers, and for players, too.

Here’s a sneak peak at the level editor:

Out-of-a-Hat Game Jam!

Hey Dev Nighters, ready for a challenge?

This Thursday’s game jam theme is “Out-of-a-Hat.” We’re going to have three hats, one containing genres, one containing styles, and one containing moods. Your assigned game will be based on whatever combination of words you pull from the hats. We believe in you.

When: Thursday, June 6th, 5:00 PM-5:00 AM

Where: Cipher Prime Studios (239 Chestnut Street, Old City)
