Let’s be honest here, after you get your testosterone pumping a bit with news about Halo, Far Cry, Metal Gear Solid and everything else that involves guns and explosions, you need a bit of a break from that. The world of indie games — or at least games with smaller budgets and smaller scale releases — is usually where you can find that break. Games from smaller studios have in the past few years really pushed the boundaries with creativity, fun gameplay and a departure from the big budget blockbusters. Developers Giant Sparrow, with some help from SCE Santa Monica, are looking to do just that, much in the vein of what thatgamecompany has done over the lifespan of the PS3 with their games like Flow, Flower and Journey.
Giant Sparrow is releasing — at some point this year — a game titled The Unfinished Swan, and it looks to be absolutely delightful on a number of levels. It started off as a tech demo that we saw in 2008 and has developed a lot since then. At PAX Prime 2012 Giant Sparrow showed off the latest trailer for the game, giving insight into the story and gameplay a bit, following an orphan and a painting of an unfinished swan which mysteriously disappears from the painting. This of course leads to adventure and the world, literally, looks like a canvas awaiting some color and adventure.
