This week we’re discussing The Unfinished Swan, an experimental first person exploration game on Sony platforms from Giant Sparrow. This is a really unique game with some incredible visuals and mechanics. Most famously, it begins in a completely white void where your only way to navigate is to paint the walls and surroundings with a black paint gun, creating/discovering striking 3D monochrome visuals. The game is full of stunningly original ideas; the first 15 minutes alone are worth the price of admission.
The Unfinished Swan is available on PS3, PS4 and PS Vita, typically at $14.99 though it is frequently part of bundles or sales. Expect it to take about 3-5 hours to complete.
UPDATE: The Unfinished Swan will be a part of the Playstation Plus free games for May 2015. If you’re a PS+ member, make sure to check out this great game!
