Concrete Genie launches 9th October 2019 on PS4

Photo mode confirmed, digital deluxe edition detailed

Hello! Dominic Robilliard, Creative Director of Pixelopus here with very exciting news. I’m happy to announce that Concrete Genie will be available on 9th October 2019 .

To celebrate this occasion, we have a new Concrete Genie trailer to share, which provides some new glimpses of our protagonist Ash on his personal journey to paint his hometown of Denska back to life, as well as the challenges he’ll face along the way.

Later on in the game there is an exciting gameplay twist, which we hinted at in our last trailer, and we show some more of that here. Ash’s magic brush has a few new surprises that are revealed through the course of the story, one of which is ‘Paint Skating’. We hope you like it!

As for our next bit of news – pre-orders begin today!

All of us at Pixelopus want as many people to experience Concrete Genie as possible. We’re thrilled to share our price point – €29.99 for the Standard Edition and €39.99 for the Digital Deluxe.

Concrete Genie on PS4

All editions of Concrete Genie include two beautiful and immersive PlayStation VR modes* that we unveiled back in April in addition to the core PS4 game.


Additionally, we’re thrilled to confirm that a Photo Mode will be available at launch. We have added a special feature to it – a timelapse style ‘Replay’ that allows you to show how you put your artistic compositions together. We can’t wait to see the images and clips of the artwork you’ll create once you get your hands on this feature.

As an incentive for people who pre-order, we’re offering an Avatar set as well as a special Dynamic Theme featuring a rooftop scene from Denska, with special music composed by Sam Marshall. We’re really happy with how the theme turned out and hope all those that pre-order enjoy having its atmospheric vibes on their PS4s.


As mentioned, we have a great Digital Deluxe Edition available for people who want to immerse themselves even further in the hand-crafted world we’ve made for Concrete Genie.

You get a Digital Artbook featuring a ton of stunning development images created by Art Director Jeff Sangalli and our amazing art team, a complete soundtrack from the game composed by Sam Marshall, a Pond Design Pack to expand your design toolset, and an additional Dynamic Theme featuring the Lighthouse location from the game.

We look forward to sharing more with you on the road to Concrete Genie’s launch on 9th October. In the meantime, please download and enjoy these beautiful wallpapers put together by our art team.

When will “photo modes” stop being “news”?

When will negative comments on the silliest things ever stop on this blog?


When the blog stops putting the silliest things into the limelight, that’s when

Damn, it’s not even WHENSDAYS!

So hyped for this game :)

About the wallpapers .. do u also have a widescreen (1080 or 4k) version of it? the ones u linked are hardly useable

They do. I think they just forgot to link to it here. Just search for “playstationblog” “flickr” and go to albums and there they have them in resolutions up to 4K. The US blog also linked to the wallpapers hosted on their own servers (though in lower quality with 1080 max). I’ll link both directly in the next comment because I don’t know if links will get a comment blocked or not.

Edit: Looks like comments with links do get auto-moderated and deleted. Makes sense but you should still be able to find them.

Wow, great price point. Even more interested in it now. October can’t come soon enough. :)

None of those preorder bonuses for physical buyers :’( I’m still looking forward to the game but that’s frustrating

I have feeling that this game is secret hit of 2019, brought PS4 mainly because of exclusives and i am having great time so far there still some i haven’t played but i will…
