Sony Computer Entertainment Asia has extended its partnership with Nanyang Polytechnic in Singapore for five more years. The partnership gives final-year students of the school's game design courses access to Sony development kits to create projects. The extension of the deal allows students to also create code for the PlayStation Vita. The partnership began in 2009, and helped to create the NYP Games Resource Centre – the only PlayStation development and educational facility in South East Asia.
The resource centre is currently the only PlayStation development and educational facility in South East Asia, and serves as the birthplace of two games due for release on the PlayStation network: PhaseShift: Threat Beyond the Network and Spell Weaver. The two notable titles that benefit from this partnership are the Network and Spell Weaver (working title). The PhaseShift: Threat Beyond is a 2D shooter by Dark Potato Studios, while Spell Weaver (working title) is a 2D platformer that uses a seven-word spelling mechanics.
