MasonicGamer.com: Unique is probably the first word that came to my and every other gamer or journalists’ mind when we first set eyes on this “first-person painter” developed by Giant Sparrow. I know using your imagination isn’t something this generation is particularly used to with games, generally more familiar with a completed story that guides you through a linear landscape instead of attempting to penetrate your senses. The Unfinished Swan proves that with a little imagination (and not much else), you can create an unparalleled gaming experience.
You play as Monroe, a young boy whose been placed in an orphanage after the death of his mother, his only keepsake being an unfinished painting of a swan. At the orphanage where you live, the swan comes to life and escapes through a magical door in your bedroom. Armed with healthy supply of black paint, you chase after it and find yourself in a strange and empty world.
