Girls Make Games With Dreams on PS4

PlayStation supported this video of our visit to Media Molecule to film the Girls Make Games event. We spent the day with the group making a game with Dreams for the first time.

“They are making a game, inside a game at a game studio. It doesn’t get more perfect than this. What they were able to make in Dreams looks complex but the simple process really lowers the barrier to entry of making a polished game.” Laila Shabir – Girls Make Games

“That feeling of confidence they get of creating their own game is something you carry forward into life.” Laila Shabir – Girls Make Games

“I watch a lot of coding videos on YouTube and they are always men doing it. I never see any girls. So this has been great to see other girls who are interested in things like this.” Girls Make Games Participant.

“It’s easy to pick up once you’ve mastered the basic controls.” Girls Make Games Participant.

“You get to let your creativity burst and be yourself and create whatever you want.” Girls Make Games Participant.

“A lot of people think that making games is a boy thing. But it’s better for girls and boys to come together because it’s more creative.” Girls Make Games Participant.

“It was a little bit challenging, but when you got into it, it was easier. I might think about this as a job because it’s really been fun.” Girls Make Games Participant.

“It was tricky, but it was also easy. You could make it up on your own. I loved understanding how you make games. After playing Dreams I’d love to work in the industry.” Girls Make Games Participant.

“Video games are the medium of our time and it needs new voices. I’d love to see game making being something parents encourage as much as learning guitar or learning a language. We love the idea of families making stuff together. It is for the next generation of game designers, architects, fashion designers. But mostly, it’s for the next ‘question mark’. It’s these young people who are going to take us to the future and I don’t know what they are going to do but they are birthing it now.” Sibahn Reddy Media Molecule

Jolly Battle New iPhone iPad Family Show Down

We worked with Jolly Battle to test out their new game with one of our families. It’s on the app store: https://apple.co/2Fc2xlr

This is not a fight to the death, but a fight for the tastiest pie! It’s a challenge for those hardened in battles with lollipops and candies. Battleship, a favourite board game of many a parent, is now available in a completely new version for children. Don’t panic under fire, as many sweets and delicious cakes await instead of a navy fleet, caramel instead of cannonballs.

Develop your own strategy, and don’t give your opponents a shot at livin’ the dolce vita! Gather a team of friends, and get an unforgettable battle of cakes underway! For the very bravest player, battles against AI players are available, with different levels of difficulty (you can always call your mom or dad for help!).

GAME FEATURES

– Simple, classic rules

– Attractive graphics

– Entertaining soundtrack

GAME RULES

Jolly Battle is played using the rules of the classic game Battleship. The players do battle with a fleet of funny, animated cakes. Firepower is brought to bear through caramel bombs, which zero in on the cakes that the players take aim at. Players take turns to attack. So choose where to place your fighting cakes, and try to ‘chow down’ on the enemy fleet faster than the enemy can devour yours!
