The Unfinished Swan headed to PSN

Wander into a surreal, unfinished world.

The Unfinished Swan is coming to PlayStation Network. Giant Sparrow announced on the PlayStation Blog tonight that following a long period of silence, it has signed a deal with Sony to bring the first-person painter to PlayStation 3.

“For those of you familiar with Sony’s relationship with thatgamecompany, it’s the same kind of thing. Sony calls it an ‘incubation deal,'” said Giant Sparrow creative director Ian Dallas. “In addition to giving us funding they also provide office space, equipment and advice (often in the form of this cheerful graphics programmer from the God of War team). The best part is that we get to focus all of our energies on just making a game.”

The indie title follows the story of a boy named Monroe chasing after a swan who stepped out of a painting and wandered into a surreal, unfinished, white space of a world. Paint will be your guide, revealing walls, corners, and other obstacles. But that’s not everything.

“The painting a white world stuff is actually just the first 15 minutes,” said Dallas. “After that, things get really weird.”
