about X hours ago from

Giant Sparrow has been doling out little seeds of info regarding its upcoming game What Remains of Edith Finch for more than two years now. The studio, which also developed The Unfinished Swan, released a trailer for the new project at last year's PlayStation Experience, which only helped to add to the sense of mystery. Now, they've unveiled a new look at the game and some additional details on what players can expect from the PlayStation 4 exclusive.

As Giant Sparrow explains on a post on the PlayStation Blog, What Remains of Edith Finch tells the story – or stories – of the Finch family. Players will explore the family home, including bedrooms that contain scraps of information about its previous occupants. The game is divided into stories based on family members, with a focus on their deaths.

Yoshi's Woolly World Gets Adorable Cosmetic Amiibo Support

It looks like your Amiibo collection is going to have an adorable (but purely cosmetic) purpose when Yoshi's Woolly World arrives later this year. A new, brief trailer shows off the concept.

While Yoshi doesn't speak English, we are interpretting his gestures to mean that when you tap an Amiibo during Yoshi's Woolly World, you'll see the results on-screen. Yoshi will take on the appearance of the character whose Amiibo you used.

Building Up Mad Max's Magnum Opus, The Four-Wheeled Heart Of His Wasteland

Building Up Mad Max's Magnum Opus, The Four-Wheeled Heart Of His Wasteland

I ventured into the heart of wasteland with the upcoming Mad Max game at a recent press event in Santa Monica. To stand a chance in this harsh atmosphere, you need to build up Max's Magnum Opus, his main source of transportation. Here's what I did to survive with my time in the crazy world, which was full of close calls and satisfying victories.

Collecting Scrap For Car UpgradesScrap is the wasteland's treasure. It can used for upgrades to Max's Magnum Opus, making it the top priority. I went to a scrap-collecting mission, where I was instructed to find three pieces. While the first two were easy enough to find, the third one poses a bigger challenge, as it's locked in a container. Luckily, I have a harpoon on my car. I aim and release it at the container to pull off the front portion. I now have what I need to obtain a new car body. Going into the upgrade screen, I can select the new body, but I also have even more options for customization with color and design. Using additional scrap, I upgrade the car's armor to give it some extra protection. Who knows what the open road will bring?

An Indie Puzzler That Will Help You Understand The Forth Dimension

An Indie Puzzler That Will Help You Understand The Forth Dimension

After reading Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions, indie game designer Marc Ten Bosch was inspired to create a game that would help people better understand how the fourth dimension works. Miegakure has been in development for a long time, but it may be nearing completion, so we talked with Bosch about the challenges of creating a game set in a dimension outside our own and what he's doing to ensure that players don't get completely lost while exploring the multiverse.

What's the most challenging aspect of programming a game like this?In general we have to generalize to 4D every concept we take for granted in other games. Almost no one has done this before, so we had to invent of lot of new tech for this game. For example, in a 3D game objects are represented by a bunch of triangles that create the surface of the object. In a 4D game the surface is represented using a bunch of tetrahedra! Similarly to represent the texture of an object, in a 3D game we use images, which are essentially 2D squares of pixels. In a 4D game we have to use images which are 3D cubes of pixels!

Hands-On Impressions With Nintendo's New Multiplayer Shooter

Hands-On Impressions With Nintendo's New Multiplayer Shooter

It's rare for Nintendo to reveal a new IP, but when the house of Mario first revealed Splatoon at last year's E3 it was surprising not just because it was a fresh face, but because Nintendo was diving into waters it hasn't previously charted: online multiplayer shooters. With Splatoon's release just around the corner, we jumped online and threw some paint around to see if this new property lives up to Nintendo's standards.

Unlike most shooters where players single-mindedly train their weapons on the opposing team, Splatton's primary multiplayer mode, called Turf War, tasks two teams of four with spreading paint across the floor. Players can still shoot paint at their opponents, causing them to respawn at their home base, but kill counts aren't important; the only number that matters at the end of each round is the percentage of your team's paint covering the floor.
