For those of you who like your top-down dungeoneering, Sony’s San Diego Studios have got something you might like. They have just shown a game, with a working title of Ruin, that looks very much like a lightweight Diablo-style game, though with only melee combat, not ranged or magical as far as we could see.
Initially shown being played on the PS Vita, the game has your character running around hacking and slashing his way through the, presumably, evil hordes. Also explained was a competitive social aspect where through the playing of the game, you indirectly build your lair.
Other players can then raid your lair and if you have your PS Vita handy you will be notified and can then ‘leap’ to its defence. Next up, we were shown how the game’s cloud-saving feature allows you to save your game on the PS Vita and then load it up on the PS3 version of the game to continue where you left off. There was no word on a release date.
