Greetings out there in PlayStation land! I’m Mark Tsai, president and co-founder at Magic Pixel Games in Los Angeles. Our name’s new, but the team’s not – we’re industry veterans who have worked on many well-loved franchises such as Stephen Spielberg’s Boom Blox and Guitar Hero, among many other titles in our combined resume.
But enough about us – I’m really excited to introduce you to our newest production: Carnival Island, which we produced in collaboration with SCEA Santa Monica Studio. We’ve taken the physical accuracy of the PlayStation Move motion controller, Magic Pixel’s expertise in motion-controlled gaming, and the fun of the carnival…and rolled them into a truly family-friendly, instantly-accessible experience. It’s all the fun of the fair without having to find parking! Check out our launch walkthrough video to learn why PS Move’s technology enables a precise, seamless experience.
Carnival Island features more than 35 games and attractions, so there’s surely something fun for gamers of all ages and skill-levels. Play solo in Story mode, or grab your friends and family and play together (side-by-side or one-at-a-time), since the game supports up to four players with up to two motion controllers. Frogbog, Ringtoss, Shooting Gallery and Hoops are just a few of the games you’ll play as you explore the island – and the games get more and more magical as you play. The sky’s the limit!
Carnival Island also includes tons of souvenirs and friends for you to meet. Pets and adorable creatures awaken and cheer you on as you play each attraction bringing life and color back to the island. And as you succeed, the island has many secrets for you to reveal.
We’re really excited for you to try the game and feel proud that we’ve made a game that’s really unlike any other motion-controlled experience, with wonder and magic around every corner.
Carnival Island will be available at your favorite retailer today, November 15th. The demo will also be available on PlayStation Network soon.
