Set in a world straight out of a child’s storybook — described by the developers as a “fairytale landscape” designed to inspire a “sense of wonder” — The Unfinished Swan revolves around a young boy named Monroe who one day finds himself immersed in the art he and his mother admire in the real world. By using the analog sticks to move around in a first-person perspective (or the PlayStation Move, should you so desire), players will be able to launch paint balls at their surroundings with their controller’s triggers, turning the boring whitewash you first encounter into something alive and traversable. The paint will coat the walls and floors of labyrinthine corridors and rooms as you work your way further and further into the unknown.

Antti Stén and Tuomas Erikoinen have broken free of Angry Birds developer Rovio to start their own studio, Boomlagoon.
