Happion Laboratories’ Spider-Man 2 and SSXinspired sci-fi swingin’ action game Energy Hook is coming to PS4 and Vita, creator Jamie Fristrom announced on Reddit.

“I just signed with Sony to bring it to the PlayStation Vita and PS4,” Fristrom posted on Reddit. “So stoked.”

According to Fristrom, his initial pitch to Sony was turned down, but by approaching a different contact at the company—Shahid Kamal, senior business development manager at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe—he was able to arrange a deal.

Fristrom worked for Treyarch as technical and creative directors on both Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2  for GameCube, PS2, and Xbox, where he designed the swing mechanic—something he loved so much he decided to build his own indie game around it: Energy Hook. Fristrom raised over $40,000 on Kickstarter to fund the project, asking for a pledge goal of only $1.

Energy Hook is set to launch on PC, Mac OS X, Linux, PS4, and Vita early 2014.
