One of PlayStation VR's best kept secrets is The Persistence, a roguelike horror experience that we're big fans of here at Push Square. The developer, Firesprite, has been doing an admirable job of keeping it fresh too, dropping a big, free update a few months back that brought new modes and options to the title. It seems the...
New accessibility features added, too
There’s no better feeling than when a game you already enjoy gets a huge free update. Firesprite’s brilliant PlayStation VR roguelite horror The Persistence is set to receive an enormous patch next week, which bundles in a bunch of new modes and various other bits and pieces at no extra cost. You can’t say...
We fire up Firesprite's studio history
In our third article following Push Square’s visit to Firesprite, we sent one of our retro enthusiasts who was particularly eager to learn more about the links between its studio’s history with Psygnosis and Studio Liverpool. In time for the launch week of the sci-fi horror game The Persistence we also...
The Persistence is a perfect name. Yes, it relates to some sci-fi mumbo-jumbo buried at the very core of the game’s lore, but really it encapsulates what the game is about: persistence. You’re the one remaining survivor on a space station that’s inevitably transmuted into some kind of homicidal hellhole, but the good news is that...
Jamie and the magic torch
I felt well situated to visit Firesprite to play its PlayStation VR stealth horror game The Persistence for Push Square recently. I’m local to Merseyside, so travelling from my home to its Liverpool office took twenty minutes in total. I’m also a keen retro gamer, and once I had the fascinating opportunity to talk to...
In space, she wore the brown pants
Push Square recently visited the Liverpool city centre base of the independent studio Firesprite in the sunny North West of England to discuss The Persistence, which in the words of Game Director Stuart Tilley is a “brutal, sci-fi, stealth horror roguelike” game releasing on PlayStation VR next week. We sat...
Endure and survive
Firesprite’s long anticipated procedurally generated horror The Persistence will spook PlayStation VR headset wearers from 24th July. Available to pre-order from the PlayStation Store now – with a discount for PlayStation Plus members – the title fuses the popular rogue-lite genre with first-person Dead Space-esque...
Sci-fi horror hasn’t really had a champion on consoles since Dead Space, but The Persistence looks like a worthy addition to the genre. A procedurally generated title for PlayStation VR, the title sees you whisked away to a far-flung corner of the galaxy, where a black hole investigation has gone horribly awry. You’ll play as a...
Blimey, the original Dead Space was so good, wasn’t it? The sequel was decent, too, but that inaugural entry was a masterpiece. With the series all but dead, it’s nice to see its spirit alive and well with PlayStation VR exclusive The Persistence. Like, it’s not even trying to hide its influences is it: abandoned space station?...
The closure of Studio Liverpool, formerly Psygnosis, came as a nasty and sudden shock to the wider video game community. Spearheading the much loved WipEout and Colony Wars franchises, it was undoubtedly one of Sony's most beloved first-party developers. We've not heard a great deal from the defunct company's former staffers, and...
