Some folks love finding enjoyable new smaller games to download and play from the Xbox Live Marketplace or PlayStation Network. Not being one of them personally, it’s only every once in a while that one really grabs my attention. The last big one to blow my mind was Limbo, the hauntingly beautiful tale of a boy making his way through a dark and deadly dream world.
But there’s a new game that fits this description that has me incredibly intrigued, and that game is called The Unfinished Swan. Basically, you the player start the game staring at a completely white screen (not for every level, as you’ll see, but some of them). Not a thing to see, nowhere to go. To find the path, you’ll throw little paint balls all around you, which will coat anything around you and reveal where you can walk. It’s a brilliant little concept and looks like it could be well worth our time.
Check out a story trailer and the lengthy gameplay demo for The Unfinished Swan below now!
No official release date has been announced yet, only that it will arrive sometime in 2012, and that it’s exclusive to the PlayStation Network.
