Developed by Giant Sparrow and published by Annapurna Interactive, “The Unfinished Swan” is out on the App Store (originally released on PlayStation). Explore a mysterious all-white landscape by splatting paint to reveal the world around you in The Unfinished Swan. As Monroe, a 10-year-old orphan, you’ll follow a swan that’s stepped out of an unfinished painting and wandered off into a surreal, storybook-inspired kingdom. Each chapter brings surprises, new ways to explore the world, a host of bizarre (and sometimes dangerous) creatures, and encounters with the eccentric king who built this empire.
The newest game from Annapurna Interactive is called If Found…, and the teaser trailer can be seen here. It tells the story of a trans woman’s exploration of family, friendship, isolation, and connection. “Players read through and erase the diary of Kasio, a young woman returning to her family home on Achill Island in the West of Ireland. Players will relive her experiences and see the moments both happy and painful that make up the month of December 1993. Everything leads to the night of December 31st when a black hole will destroy the entire world. Where did it come from? Is there any way to stop it? The answers are here, waiting to be discovered.”
