Sports Champions studio moves to mobile
Zindagi Games, the studio behind the Sports Champions series on the PlayStation 3, appears to have had its inaugural PlayStation 4 project canned. The company's website previously alluded to an ongoing relationship with SCEA – and, in particular, Sony San Diego – but all references to the platform holder...
Motion in the ocean
Despite the device being on the market for over two years now, few developers have managed to get the same precision out of the PlayStation Move as Zindagi Games. The second-party studio – which is based in the heart of sunny California – describes itself as a motion control specialist, having already shipped three top...
What took so long?
If there's one Move game everyone liked, it's Sports Champions, so it's excellent news that Zindagi Games and Sony San Diego Studios are working together on Sports Champions 2 for PlayStation Move. The line-up of sports mixes new with old, and includes bowling, tennis, golf, skiing, archery and boxing. It'll support two players...
Next move for motion studio
Zindagi Games – the developer behind the brilliant Sports Champions and the likable Medieval Moves – is readying itself for the next generation. In a job opening advertised on Gamasutra, the proficient PlayStation Move studio notes that it is "moving on and working on the next generation home console"...
Out next week
Sony America is hoping to entice the Christmas gifters with a new Move bundle that includes two games from motion control experts Zindagi Games. Available next week, the package contains a PlayStation Eye, Move motion controller and copies of Sports Champions and Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest, all for a very reasonable $99.99: not...
Are you dead enough?
Eagerly anticipated Move-exclusive adventure Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest is just a couple of weeks away, but you get your chance to play it this week as a free demo is due to land on the PlayStation Store. The North American shop should update tomorrow with a playable trial of Zindagi's undead action game. We're not sure...
Good job, Zindagi
It probably shouldn’t be funny to watch a guy try to use a digital bow and arrow unsuccessfully for a good five minutes. That’s exactly the scenario we were faced with when taking a peek at Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest, the latest PlayStation Move title from Sports Champions developer Zindagi Games. It would have been a...
Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest is Sports Champions
Make no mistake, this is a brand new PlayStation Move-exclusive title with its own characters and narrative, but at its core it's built upon the same fundamentals that developer Zindagi Games founded in last year's motion controlled sports compilation. Our demo opens in a vast training arena. It's...
Beep beep, ribby ribby
Zindagi Games' next title after the top notch Sports Champions isn't the expected sequel: instead it's the co-operative adventure Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest, and here's the first trailer. Expect to see Deadmund making his rib-tickling appearance on PlayStation 3 later in the year.
It's not the Sports Champions sequel we were expecting, but Zindagi's new game looks to be an entertaining outing in its own right. Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest has been dubbed an "action adventure shooter", covering most bases in one deft stroke, but from the press release it sounds like a cross between Medievil and the...
Zindagi Games is not developing the PlayStation Move enabled tennis game we dreamed of, it is instead working on what looks to be an updated iteration of Sorcery
Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest is an action game taking full advantage of Sony's motion controller in a whimsical world. Alas, it has nothing to with Sony Cambridge's Medieval franchise. The Move controls appeared to work well in the..
Regular readers will know we have a minor obsession with tennis games
We're probably one of the few video game blogs that actually discusses tennis games on a regular basis. For that, we apologise to our non-tennis fan readers — but just give us 1,000 more words to talk about one of our dream E3 announcements: a PlayStation Move tennis game developed by Zindagi Games. For those that aren't aware,..
Exclusive video and interview inside
When PlayStation Move launched there was one game that truly showed off its impressive 1:1 controls: Sports Champions. The game featured multiple sports, each using Move in its own unique way. One of the sports stood out from the rest, and that was Disc Golf: the precision and accuracy of Move was able to...
Sports Champions is one of the most heavily under-rated releases of 2010 in our opinion
It's not that the game scored unfavourably, it's just that it didn't manage to register on the radar of most players. Which is a deep shame, because as far as we're concerned, the sports compilation's interpretation of table-tennis is hands-down the most accurate demonstration of motion control available..
Cast your mind back to E3 2009 when Sony demoed the "PlayStation Motion Controller"
You may remember some tech demonstrations involving skeletons and specters. The PlayStation Motion Controller eventually became the PlayStation Move, and those tech demonstrations formed the basis of Sports Champions. But what of the skeletons and specters? Sony's confirmed that three new "Haunted"..
Our biggest complaint with the excellent Sports Champions is that on a presentation level it's pretty flat
Let's be honest here, who is going to remember what Kenji and Giselle look like? Zindagi might have done an excellent job programming personality into the AI opponents, but their art team weren't on form designing the characters. That's fine, because Sports Champions is an enjoyable game..
Today is the day of reckoning
Just a year after the PlayStation 3 Slim's launch here in Europe, Sony's got another big day ahead of them. The PlayStation Move is out in the wild, and Sony's let some of the big publications go knee-deep with impressions. On the whole, everything's looking pretty positive for Sony's motion controller. Joystiq describe the hardware as a "resounding success,"..
Sony's confirmed on the PlayStation Blog that "there are plans" to bring DLC to the excellent Sports Champions
According to one of the game's producers, Jeremy Ray, the team will be "announcing details soon". Whether or not the DLC will stretch to new sports, we're uncertain. We'd hazard the added content will focus on adding characters, but obviously entirely new activities would be..
Admittedly, Sports Champions has about as much charm as a limp sock
But having got hands-on time with the compilation's table tennis game, we're not sure it matters. That's because PlayStation Move works; this is not a device playing on empty promises and faked lifestyle commercials - it does what Sony have always said it will: track your movements...
