Underwater donuts? Sure!

PSN’s first papercraft title Derrick the Deathfin is set to swim onto the PSN this summer. The underwater escapade tells the tail of the titular aquatic adventurer as he searches for revenge “in an irreverent aquatic world full of paper, goofy fish, paper, arcade action, paper, wanton destruction, and paper”. We think there’s something to do with paper, too.

We’ll let Gordon Midwood, head of fresh produce at developer Different Tuna, explain:

After Derrick’s parents are brutally turned into soup he sets forth on a worldwide rampage of destruction in order to make himself feel a bit better. On his travels he eats all manner of dopey delights for dinner, duels with paper enemies and decimates manmade cardboard monstrosities. Derrick also has a distinct fondness for picking up diamonds and jumping through burning tyres in the sky. Just like a real shark.

The title will feature over 32 levels set across 11 environments and four continents. The gameplay revolves around momentum, with Derrick requiring frequent morsels of tasty aquatic scran to stay alive. Midwood describes the game as the “illegitimate lovechild of Ecco the Dolphin and Sonic the Hedgehog, possibly with Joe Danger filming in the background during conception”. Sounds like quite the party – why weren’t we invited?

Street artist Ronzo has provided the title with its papercraft artstyle. Fascinatingly, all of the characters and environments are based upon real papercraft, many of which were photographed and imported into the game as 3D models.

Derrick the Deathfin is set to slosh onto the PSN this summer. We’ve included a trailer below to calm your overflowing anticipation.
