nDreams has been on quite the role over the past year. Since the developer launched The Assembly on PlayStation VR’s release day, it has gone on to publish the co-op brawler Bloody Zombies, as well as VR experience Perfect. To round out 2017, we have Shooty Fruity, a title that asks you to eliminate hordes of fruit while trying...
Clean up in aisle three
You can imagine the design discussions at nDreams. “I quite like Job Simulator,” posits one developer, “and static shooting galleries work well in virtual reality. Couldn’t we, like, combine the two?” Voila! Shooty Fruity falls from a tropical tree. Unsurprisingly, this is a fun but derivative PlayStation VR game...
Multitasking looks set to be taken to the next level in Shooty Fruity, a new PlayStation VR game in development at nDreams and Near Light. Launching later this year, the title sees you starting a job at Super Megamart, where you’ll be scanning everyday items as part of your mind-numbing new role. The twist? Giant fruit are on the...
Additional assembly required
We knew going in that the promise of Sony's cheaper PlayStation VR headset meant that the graphical output was going to be inferior to that of its competition. Even with this knowledge, some of the titles have been shockingly unimpressive. It's easier to work around the headset's lower specs when using abstract art...
nDreams' narrative-driven sci-fi story The Assembly will be wheeled on to the PlayStation Store in time for the launch of PlayStation VR next week. The game – which plots the tale of two scientists working in a seedy underground facility – hopes to test your morality, as questions are raised about the motives of the...
Intriguing interactive adventure The Assembly will go underground on PlayStation VR shortly after the device's launch in October, developer nDreams has announced. The game – which depicts the shady happenings at a mysterious organisation located beneath the Nevada desert – will find you assuming the role of two different...
Look around you
Despite being little more than a year away from release, we're yet to see anything meaty for Sony's forthcoming Project Morpheus headset. The tech demos have been intriguing, there's no doubt about that – but it's about time we saw some meatier experiences. The Assembly is one such title, a morally ambiguous adventure in which...
The truth will come out
This is exactly what Project Morpheus needs to succeed: original games built from the ground up for virtual reality. The Assembly, which was originally announced last year, has been re-engineered over the past 12 months – and is now aiming to release in 2016 alongside Sony's ambitious PlayStation 4 peripheral. It sounds...
We were expecting a greater emphasis on PlayStation 4’s virtual reality headset Project Morpheus during Sony’s E3 2014 press conference earlier this week, but the headset hasn’t been forgotten entirely. In addition to showing a couple of new demos at its booth, PlayStation Home developer nDreams has also announced a brand new...
Stand and stairs
nDreams, the awkwardly named developer behind popular PlayStation Home experience Aurora, is hard at work on a brand new PlayStation 4 title – and as part of a New Year newsletter, it has revealed the very first picture of the game. The shot shows a rickety old set of stairs, which appear to be located in a dimly lit underground...
While many gamers consider PlayStation Home to be a bit of a flop, the online plaza has enabled a number of companies to grow at a rapid rate over the past five or so years. One such outfit is nDreams, the British-based developer behind the virtual world’s free-to-play Aurora space. However, as the online service teeters towards...
PlayStation Home is on a bit of a winning streak at the moment. Within the span of just four weeks the virtual world has seen the arrival of management simulator Home Tycoon and third-person shooter Uproar. This week sees yet another full game added to the social platform, in the form of tower defence title Fight Until Blood and Ruin...
We'd just like to spend a few moments to thank James Gallagher of the PlayStation Blog
Sarcastically, of course. His latest PlayStation Home update, entitled "What Goes Bump In The Night", has totally got us listening to the AllStars on loop. So thanks for that. Thanks a lot. Anyway. Lots of bits-and-bobs in PlayStation Home this week. New...
nDreams is launching its official PlayStation Home headquarters in Sony's digital world this week, revealing the fantastical floating land of Aurora
The world is packed with mini-games and secret bonus rewards to unlock. It also looks stunning. In addition to the Aurora island, Sony's announced a bunch of other goodies that are launching in Home...
Remember Xi? The alternative reality game that made Playstation Home a real living place to be
Yeah, it was awesome wasn't it? People always think we're being sarcastic when we talk about Home being awesome, but we think the developers and its audience are really starting to find their niche. There are a surprising number of people who spend a lot...
