The Unfinished Swan – Playstation 4 Review

The Unfinished Swan

“The Unfinished Swan is a game about exploring the unknown.

The player is a young boy (Monroe) chasing after a swan who has wandered off into a surreal, unfinished kingdom. The game begins in a completely white space where players can throw paint to splatter their surroundings and reveal the world around them.”

The game was released on October 23, 2012, and is available exclusively for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and the PlayStation Vita. It's a downloadable game so to buy it you'll need to visit Sony's online store.” ---- http://www.giantsparrow.com/games/swan/
