Pixelopus’ tale of bird-meets-fish love Entwined is coming to Sony’s other PlayStation platforms “in the very near future,” creative director Dominic Robilliard announced on the PlayStation Blog.
According to Robilliard, one of Entwined’s two early prototypes was conceived with the Vita in mind, imagining a local two-player game that divided control over the two characters to the handheld console’s two analog sticks. “We found out the idea itself was nice and fun, but a two-player game on Vita had a more limited audience.”
This eventually led Pixelopus down the path to the game’s final design, in which the bird and fish are separately controlled by each analog stick, but by one player. A considerable amount of behind-the-designs design introspective is contained in the PlayStation Blog post for those interested in the intricacies of its development.
As for the PS3 and Vita versions themselves, Robilliard says the team is “wrapping up” those versions this week.
“We can’t wait to get those to you in the very near future,” he wrote. “All that remains for me to say is thank you once again for all the amazing feedback and support for the game. It makes us so happy to hear about all the gamers who have made such a strong connection with Entwined. It’s why we do what we do.”
