2D Hack and Slash Indie title ICEY releases tomorrow

What’s up PlayStation Nation,

If you’re big on the trophy hunting scene this title known as _ICEY_ may more than likely be a familiar name you’ve heard in regards to being a quick and easy platinum trophy run. But to those who may not be as involved in such matters may not have ever heard of this game before at all. However that will hopefully change as of tomorrow. Chinese developer Mark Xiao took to the PS Blog, to reveal that his long awaited title _ICEY_ would be coming state side to North America and to the EU via the respective regions PS Stores. Here’s what he had to say below:

About Icey

It’s up to you, really. Do you prefer to see through Icey’s eyes and act as she would? Or do you prefer to remain “yourself” and see the world through your own eyes? Only you can decide what the real story is.

Hack and Slash

There are plenty of combo attacks to tie together during battle in Icey.

Once enemies are sufficiently weakened, you’ll be able to dispatch them quickly in a flurry of slashes.

Absorb energy released from kill shots to then release a massive attack which damages all enemies within view.

Combine all of these together to build up devastating combos.

Resist the Narrator and Find Your Own Path

It’s possible to play Icey as a simple action game, but if you want to discover the real story behind Icey you need to realize that the narrator can be directly disobeyed.

For example, the narrator will tell you to activate a bridge.

Of course, you don’t have to listen.

Resist these instructions enough times, and the narrator will prevent your progress and even teach you how to play the game.

Resist further, and the narrator will create a “temporary” zone for you.

And, of course, try to force you to finally follow the arrow.

Feel free to once again disobey these commands.

Only by annoying the narrator throughout Icey will players be able to uncover some semblance of the truth about the game world.

Also make sure to check out the trailer below:

Icey is definitely an experience worth a look and could prove to be a ton of fun for those who are into hack and slash titles. But don’t take our word for check it out for yourselves. With that being said let us know what do you think. Are you interested in the title? Have you heard of this game prior to today? Comment below let us know.
