The PlayStation Network has been the venue for a number of unique exclusives over the past few years, including the likes of Linger in Shadows, Flower, Journey and the upcoming Datura. All of these games have been developed in collaboration with the studio behind God of War – Sony Santa Monica.
The Unfinished Swan is the latest ‘incubation’ project to arise from a partnership between an independent developer and Sony Santa Monica. The developer in question is Giant Sparrow and The Unfinished Swan is the studio’s first title.
Here’s a brief synopsis for the game:
“Enter the surreal world of The Unfinished Swan and explore a mysterious, hidden kingdom. Your journey will be led by a runaway swan who guides you through strange levels filled with bizarre creatures. Discover the land through innovative new game mechanics such as splatting paint on a white surface to uncover your surroundings. Each level will bring new twists, challenges, and puzzles until you eventually come face-to-face with the eccentric King that built this realm.”
Giant Sparrow has confirmed that The Unfinished Swan will support the pairing of PlayStation Move and the navigation controller, as well as a regular DualShock 3. Although no firm release date has been given, the developer says we can expect the game to hit PSN this year.
