The Unfinished Swan

Postby Who Really Cares? » Fri Nov 28, 2008 5:40 pm

Due march next year this could be the next Potal/Braid

The Unfinished Swan is a first-person painting game set in an entirely white world.
Players can splatter paint to help them find their way through an unusual garden.

Will be keeping a close look on this one.

Looks boring as hell.
Like PC flash game you mess with for about a minute then forget about it.

All i see is a load of black paint....

I could just throw cans of paint around my house for real, and that would probably be more fun

Maybe inspired by the Wii-game De Blob?

Yes, I've seen someone play that game and there was more to it than I first thought by just viewing some video's.

I think this game looks amazing tbh but I have more of a penchant for the obscure and avant garde games nowadays as I have grown older.

That sounds a bit like me. I still play "normal" games but also appreciate these more "odd" ones from time to time. I replayed Braid today and Journey was one of my better gaming experiences this year.

Yeah Journey was in my conciousness when I made that post. Such a beautiful game, an experience like no other. My first Journey was spent hanging around with random people but after the first I always stick with a fellow traveller all the way through, it's epic.
