[VP Rewind is a quick look back at the important events of the past week or two that should have been on Venus Patrol had it actually been alive.]
I’ve been semi-deliberately been keeping myself in the dark (no pun?) on developments with Giant Sparrow’s The Unfinished Swan, originally unveiled nearly four years back as an intriguing IGF Student Showcase proof-of-concept based around revealing world geometry by judiciously applying splatters of black paint to the world.
Now a full Sony Santa Monica production coming soon as a downloadable PlayStation Network game, this latest peek behind the curtain reveals a fantastically tender storybook backstory that gives the entire experience an unexpected emotional charge that I’m definitely not sorry I spoiled for myself.
