Check out the first trailer
Sony’s been very accommodating with PC releases of late, licensing out so-called “second party” titles like Heavy Rain and Flower to different publishers in order to get them on non-PlayStation storefronts. Journey is the latest legendary PlayStation exclusive to, well, effectively lose its exclusivity – with a 6th June...
This old house
Republished on Wednesday 1st May 2019: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of May's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows. It's been five long years since developer Giant Sparrow released its debut title The Unfinished Swan. We absolutely adored that game when it launched, giving...
Wattam matter with you?
In our Sayonara Wild Hearts PAX East hands on, we mentioned that another of the games Annapurna brought to show was Wattam. A curious title from Keita Takahashi, the creator of the Katamari games, Wattam is an utterly charming title that, to put it mildly, is incredibly bizarre. The gameplay demo starts with you taking...
Sayonara Bye Bye
One of our favourite booths to visit each PAX East is the Annapurna booth. With an ever-changing, always impressive lineup of interesting titles, it’s usually a highlight of the entire event. This excitement goes all the way back to their first PAX East in 2017, where they brought What Remains of Edith Finch and Gorogoa, and...
Check out the first trailer
Hyper Light Drifter is one of our favourite PS4 indie titles, so we're excited to see a first glimpse of developer Heart Machine's follow-up project. The studio has released a teaser trailer for its next game, called Solar Ash Kingdom, and you can see it above. Currently only confirmed for PC, it looks like it'll be...
It looks like Sony is allowing Annapurna Interactive to bring some of the PlayStation 3's more famous indie titles to the PC, with Journey already announced and flower available now. The legendary thatgamecompany exclusive -- which sees you control petals as you restore natural beauty to increasingly polluted scenes -- first launched...
A new Journey
Legendary adventure game Journey is coming to the PC via the newly launched Epic Games Store, per publisher Annapurna Interactive. The iconic thatgamecompany experience is owned by PlayStation, but it seems the platform holder has allowed it to be released elsewhere, which is great for people who haven’t played it yet.
The Pathless has just been announced at The Game Awards, and it looks like another mystical adventure from Giant Squid. As you can see from the above trailer, it looks a little more action packed than the studio's previous game, ABZU, with an eagle friend helping you fly and giant creatures to battle. Sadly we don't know a whole lot...
How many developers can say their game was inspired by a tweet from a parody Twitter account? Donut County's central premise of controlling a hole in the ground and swallowing up objects is wonderfully novel, and has resulted in a game that's more entertaining than you'd think. In the best possible way, it's one of the silliest...
Donut County, a game that's just about as mental as its name might suggest, will burrow its way onto PlayStation 4 later this month. In it, you play as a literal hole in the ground, and your job is to swallow up charming scenery all to the beat of a quirky sounding story. If you're still not sure quite what we're on about, give the...
Goro-go and buy this game
Have you ever played one of those games where it became immediately apparent that you had something special on your hands? Something so good that it may well fundamentally change the manner in which you play and think about games? Well this is Gorogoa. And it just so happens to be one of those games. Publisher Annapurna...
About a year ago, we went hands on with the intriguing puzzle game Gorogoa, and came away very impressed. At the time, platforms for release were uncertain, but the game recently launched on Switch, PC, and iOS to universal critical praise. The good news, then, is that the curious puzzler is coming to PlayStation 4. Exactly when is...
Donut County, the latest indie title from Annapurna Interactive, is heading to PlayStation 4 next year. Announced during Sony's PlayStation Presents show at PSX 2017, this unusual game sees you play as a small hole in the universe, with a loose goal of swallowing up all and sundry to grow bigger, though to what end remains a mystery...
PlayStation exclusive extends its petals to phones
Flower, the thought-provoking float-‘em-up by Journey developer thatgamecompany, has soared to iOS courtesy of indie label Annapurna Interactive. This is a bit of a weird one because the licensing information still states that Sony owns the game, so some kind of arrangement must have been made. To...
No longer published by Sony
Sony Santa Monica’s indie publishing arm has handed off another title to Annapurna Interactive – this time it’s Funomena’s wacky Wattam. Last seen in 2015, many had feared that the Keita Takahashi creation had been cancelled, but instead it’s simply switched publishers and been awarded a 2018 release window...
Releasing in early 2018
Annapurna Interactive already has a rather impressive portfolio of indie titles to its credit. After launching its first title – What Remains of Edith Finch, which we gave a perfect score – a few months ago, it lost no time in adding another notable title to its repertoire: Cardboard Computer's...
Rock and roll
Microsoft's E3 press conference was packed with fascinating indie titles. One of the standouts is a game that comes from Australian dev Beethoven and Dinosaur, The Artful Escape of Francis Vendetti . Backed by publisher Annapurna Interactive, Francis Vendetti is a game we actually got some hands-on time with at PAX East this year,...
Watch the first 15 minutes
Ah, this is awesome. Being a so-called walking simulator, What Remains of Edith Finch is sure to split opinion, but first impressions don't get much better than this. You play as the titular teenager who's returned to her family home for reasons not entirely known. The twist is that the house is a do-it-yourself castle...
Letters to you
The Unfinished Swan is the rare recipient of a 10/10 score here at Push Square, so we've been eyeballing the imaginative What Remains of Edith Finch with intrigue ever since. Turns out that developer Giant Sparrow has eschewed the sophomore slump with ease, as reviews are out for the fascinating follow-up, and positively glowing...
Nothing but quality
There are tons of gaming companies that range in size and scope from the big guns like Sony and Bethesda to the smaller groups like Super Giant or Double Fine. But in between all of this is one type of publisher who's been gaining popularity of late: Annapurna Interactive. Annapurna was a film company founded in 2011 that worked...
A series of unfortunate events
Publisher Annapurna Interactive brought a spate of games with it to PAX East 2017. Among them is a game we've been waiting on patiently – that actually just received a release date – for four years now: What Remains of Edith Finch. The follow-up to developer Giant Sparrow's masterpiece The Unfinished Swan, Edith...
Publisher Annapurna Interactive brought four games with it to PAX East 2017, and the one that was by far the busiest all weekend was the incredible and unique puzzle game, Gorogoa. A hand-drawn point-and-click puzzle game, Gorogoa revolves around utilising four panels that function almost like a comic. You start with just one panel and...
But you really need to
Heading into PAX East 2017, there were quite a few games we headed to the convention for – and we got to play most of them. What we were not expecting was to be completely blindsided by a game we knew nothing about previously. And not just blind-sided, but blown away to such an extent that never before has a game made a...
Taking magical realism to the next level
Of all the games we tried at PSX 2016, What Remains of Edith Finch was easily one of the most memorable. The creepy vibes given off by the narrative-centric game immediately drew us in, and left us with more questions than answers. Giant Sparrow has done a great job of crafting an engaging narrative, and it...
A series of unfortunate events
Whew, seeing a new trailer for Giant Sparrow's new title was actually quite a relief. The Unfinished Swan released back in 2012, and it's been plucking away at the follow-up What Remains of Edith Finch seemingly ever since. While there have been a few trailers, details have been scarce since the last one back in...
