Hi everyone! We’re very happy to announce that from today until 6th May our BAFTA award-winning title, The Unfinished Swan, will be on sale at 50% off.
For the uninitiated, it’s a surreal adventure game in which you find yourself pursuing a swan through an ‘unfinished’ kingdom. The game starts in a completely white world where you must throw black paint around to reveal the world around you. Each level brings all new realms of twists and challenges until you eventually come face to face with the realm’s eccentric creator.
The stunning artistic vision and rich story make it an absolute joy to play – boot it up and you’ll soon see why it scooped both Game Innovation and Debut Game BAFTA awards.

A game which began as a Flash game made over a weekend because my girlfriend was away and I was a bit bored, is coming out tomorrow on PS3 and PS Vita via PSN and PS+.
That last sentence was a bit of a mouthful. I apologise.
Thomas Was Alone is a game about friendship and jumping. As you can see from the images and videos no doubt littered amongst this post, it is also very much about rectangles. If you’ve got PS Plus and you’re in the EU, you can download the game as part of the IGC at no additional cost. Which is awesome.
This version will also give you first access to some new stuff. There’s a new DLC episode which tells the story of Benjamin, a new square with a jetpack and big ideas, and a commentary mode in the main game where you can listen to me going on and on about how clever I was putting the game together.

Good morning PlayStation nation! I just wanted to stop by and pass on an exciting piece of news for those who’ve been following thatgamecompany‘s acclaimed adventure, Journey. After winning numerous awards worldwide we are bringing Journey Collector’s Edition to Europe due to popular demand.
Available from today on PlayStation Store, priced at €19.99/£15.99, Journey Collector’s Edition is a compilation showcasing the work of thatgamecompany. In addition to Journey, it also includes the studio’s other creations Flower and flOw. These are the titles that made the studio’s name and undoubtedly deserve a play. The simplicity of flOw and the beauty of Flower will capture gamers’ attention in just the same way that Journey did.
