Cucumber Country Kitchen

30th July 2012


Mmmmm, the lovely warm smell of freshly baked bread, a pot of coffee keeping warm on the hot plate, the scent of foxgloves and honeysuckle drifting through the open window from the garden. All that’s missing is the quaint little oven and English country cottage furniture. Cucumber comes through once again with the Country Kitchen Set! Head to the Lockwood store to find everything you need to create your idyllic kitchen scene.

Versatile corner and cupboard units allow for a kitchen as snug or as grand as you please and kitsch knick-knacks like the kettle and the breadbin will make the perfect finishing touches. All items are created in Cucumber’s signature classic-meets-modern style. Continue reading

ROOOOOOOOAAAAAARRRRR!!!

What was that? It sounded kinda like a dinosaur, but they’re extinct aren’t they? And… even if they weren’t extinct — you’ve seen them in movies — if there was one around, the ground would be shaking. You’d be able to hear it stomping along even if it was still streets away.

Something just brushed past at ankle height! This is getting freaky… oh, wait! It’s only Lockwood’s new mini dinosaurs. Trey the Triceratops, Arnie the Brachiosaur and Rufus the Stegosaurus – available in PlayStation®Home! Continue reading

Day 1:
Wow… I just had a call from a young couple, Jacob and Isabel – they’re getting married in a little over three weeks and haven’t organised anything yet. They’re FREAKING OUT! I told them to start by taking a breath and leave everything to me.

Mercian Diaries – Environments

4th July 2012


The Mercian world is currently a collection of over forty areas, all linked together to create a large game environment that gives you a truly unique experience on the Home platform.

This game space environment is split into a series of rooms, which when combined, make up a Dungeon. Each room is like a small Home ‘space’, and we use pretty much the same workflow that you would expect for a space. First we create a block out and associated documents to describe how it would look, then design the space specifically so that it can be threaded together with additional Mercian spaces.
