Developer Pixelopus reveal new IP: Concrete Genie at Paris Games Week 2017

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

If you know PlayStation then 1 thing is for certain is that we can always expect obscure and new titles are at the forefront of presentation for PlayStation games. Today at the PlayStation Paris Games Week media event PlayStation continues true to the description of such as they’ve taken such liberties to reveal and show off and reveal gameplay for this title as initially it came off as a beautifully designed title in a lush and colorful environment.

A rep from Pixelopus has stated that a lot of the gameplay in Concrete Genie is about having fun with paint. Using DualShock 4’s motion sensor, you can effortlessly create stunning landscapes that come to life and even make your own cast of unique creatures to hang out and play with.

 

Unfortunately, Ash has to contend with some bullies in the neighborhood, so the creatures in particular become really important to him: they’re the friends he wished he had in real life.

Concrete Genie is set in a small fishing town called Denska, which sadly at this point is practically abandoned. It has been heavily affected by pollution, but Ash discovers that his magic paint can cleanse the pollution from its streets and alleyways. Using the power of your brush to clean the walls is incredibly satisfying!

The team has been on quite the journey since we made Entwined. We’re really happy with the response we got to that game (It’s been downloaded over 1 million times!) but at the beginning of this project we decided as a team that we wanted to make something more accessible. Combining that with a desire to be more ambitious we decided to switch to Unreal 4 as our engine, and we invested in developing a 3rd person action adventure – a genre that we all have a lot of passion and love for. We wanted to make sure that if we were going to put our hearts and souls into making a game designed to create an emotional connection with players that it can reach as many people as possible.
