Upon a star
Brighton-based independent developer Wish Studios has announced that it’s working on a prototype for a brand new PlayStation IP. The outfit – which is led by former DC-UK and Mr. Dreamcast editor Caspar Field – is keeping the details of the project under wraps, but reckons it has “enormous potential”.
SCEE’s Mick Hocking said: “At SCEE we love working with creative start-ups like Wish that are passionate about games and hungry to innovate. The guys at Wish are very talented and we look forward to a fruitful relationship together.”
Field added: “We are incredibly excited to be working with SCEE on the development of this prototype. While we can’t give away any details about the project, we can say that it’s playing beautifully and has enormous potential. Sony continues to show vision and leadership in bringing original, innovative ideas to gamers, a commitment we share at Wish Studios.”
The developer lists motion controls and augmented reality as one of its specialist skills, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this ended up being a PlayStation Move or Vita title. We suppose there’s always the possibility of it being a next-generation project too. Feel free to speculate in the comments section below.
